Saw a yard sign today that really confused me and I think these guys are doing Christian wrong. It’s said god is faithful!!!
WTF does that even mean? Faith means you believe in bullshit you can’t prove. If there were a god, the last thing he’d have to have is faith about our in anything!
This is one of the age old equivocations of the church
To deliberately confuse
Faith proper noun (a religion)
faith noun (to trust)
Faith Theological proper noun (to commit to believe without proof)
They do not even have the same etymological roots
The noun and proper noun faith both come from from the Latin fides meaning trust, or reliance
The Theological Pronoun Faith comes from the 14th century when it was bastardised from the Anglo-Saxon Foi and Troth To pledge your self unconditionally, Hence Foi'th > Faith
