Models Study on faith and their key components Bibliography from Stanford University Philosophy

From all research, there are more ways people relies on faith from the unknown to enable it to manifest its counterpart, in reality, The universe is tremendously enormous all you can work with is Faith. In simpler words, faith can be described as an unshakeable belief or trust that cannot be broken. Faith is having complete trust in what you believe in and hope, faith, and purpose to see it come into manifestation. It is important to define the words and faith is such a word that carries power as, Complete trust in what you believe in and hope, faith, and purpose to see it come into manifestation. for example, if a person prays to asks for help from one of the friends regarding any work need to be submitted which he has to bring and then the person does the other project then without any worry on the submitting date he go there with faith that his friend will do it and bring it on that date. This is faith which can also be framed as in simple terms immense trust in something or someone without any question of doubt. Faith being an important part of everyone's life as people should have faith at least on them. After all, any quality which is seen outside for others is the quality with which they and if people do not have faith in themselves which means that they do not have faith in their work or ideas as well because they are the part of the person as well. "The people who give up when they are almost there or near their goals" is the situation where it can be understood that how faith plays an important role in moving forward because here we can see that people give up when they were very near and giving up at this situation shows the lack of faith on their work for which they invested their time. As we can see this then it is also understandable that giving up is not the main key but instead faith is. "The people give up that their world has gone dark" here it is seen that faith can be the biggest savior for the person as if the person has faith in himself/herself or the fact the time changes itself then they could easily be able to come out of the situation even if they do not have knowledge of it as faith will tell them no matter how difficult it would be but they will overcome it. The faith is developed over time, not within short times which could be developed over time by knowing deeply the things as it comes with understanding or deep knowledge of that thing. It also plays in balancing the other aspects as well. The small practices of building up faith will make it massive as the compound effect is the best type of method that can be used to increase the improvement rate.





Faith as a virtue

Faith is traditionally regarded as one of the ‘theological’ virtues. What is the potential scope of faith? In some models, the kind of faith exemplified by theistic faith is found only there. On both the ‘special knowledge’ and the ‘belief’ models, faith is intrinsically linked to theological content—indeed to orthodox Christian theological content, specifiable as one unified set of doctrines conveyed to receptive human minds by the operation of divine grace. Both the doxastic and sub-doxastic venture models, however, allow for the possibility that authentic faith may be variously realized, If virtue is a ‘disposition of character which instantiates or promotes responsiveness to one or more basic goods’, then theistic faith qualifies since it is ‘a responsiveness to practical hope and truth', provided theistic faith-claims are indeed true, The affective component of faith This is One component of faith is a certain kind of affective psychological state—namely, a state of feeling confident and trusting. Some philosophers hold that faith is to be identified simply with such a state, this may have been Wittgenstein’s understanding. Faith in this sense-as one’s overall ‘default’ attitude on life—provides a valuable foundation for flourishing, its loss is recognized as the psychic calamity of ‘losing one’s faith’. But if foundational existential confidence is to feature in a model of faith of the kind exemplified by theists, more needs to be added about the kind of confidence involved. Theistic faith is essentially faith in God. In general, the faith of the kind exemplified by theistic faith must have some intentional object. It may thus be argued that an adequate model of this kind of faith cannot reduce to something purely affective: some broadly cognitive component is also required.





Faith as trust

As stated at the outset Not all models of faith, however, identify it as primarily a matter of knowing or believing a proposition or a set of them. There is a usage of ‘faith’ for which ‘having/placing faith in’ is (near enough) synonymous with ‘trusting’ or ‘trusting in’. If, moreover, the faith of the religious kind is itself a type of trust, then we may expect our understanding of religious faith to profit from an analysis of trust in general. It is therefore worth considering what follows about the nature of faith of the sort exemplified in theistic faith from holding it to be a kind of trust.. Faith as belief becomes a firm and certain knowledge’ of theistic truths, then a model of faith as having a propositional object may be retained by identifying faith with a certain kind of belief. The relevant kind will be belief with theological content that God exists, is benevolent towards us, has a plan of salvation, etc where this belief is also held with sufficient firmness and conviction. Richard Swinburne labels this the ‘Thomist view’ of faith and expresses it thus: ‘The person of religious faith is the person who has the theoretical conviction that there is a God. The rationality of faith in this model is why will rest on the rationality of the firmly held theological beliefs in which it consists. if such beliefs are founded on evidence that renders their truth sufficiently more probable than not, then the beliefs concerned may amount to knowledge on a contemporary ‘justified true belief’ fallibilist epistemology, even though they fall short not as is not yours, but by the Will of God the Highest.


Faith and hope

Some philosophical reflection on faith of the kind exemplified in religious faith might ideally hope to yield an agreed definition in terms of sufficient and necessary conditions that articulate the nature of faith, the present discussion proceeds by identifying key components that recur in different accounts of religious faith. It also aims to identify a focal range of issues on which different stances are taken by different accounts. There is a plurality of existing philosophical understandings or models of faith of the religious kind. This discussion, therefore, aims to set out dialectically an organization of this plurality, while also giving indications of the reasons there may be for preferring particular models over others. Since ‘religion’ itself may well be a ‘family resemblance’ universal, essentialism about the faith of the religious kind might be misplaced. Nevertheless, the concept of faith as found in the Abrahamic, theist, religious traditions is widely regarded as unified enough for an inquiry into its nature to make sense, even if a successful real definition is too much to expect (this kind of faith might conceivably be a conceptual primitive, for example.

Not all models of faith, however, identify it as primarily a matter of knowing or believing a proposition or a set of them. What is most central to theistic faith may seem better expressed as believing in God, rather than as believing that God exists.


Faith as knowledge

Some Christian creeds begin ‘Credo in Unum Deum … and it is arguable that in this context ‘belief in’ is neither merely an idiomatic variant on nor reducible to, ‘belief that’ It may thus be held that theists’ acceptance of propositional truths as divinely revealed rests on believing in God and it is this ‘believing in’, or ‘having faith in’, which is, fundamentally, the nature of faith. Noting that, while faith is held to be a virtue, believing as such is not,

In simpler words, faith can be described as an unshakeable belief or trust that cannot be broken. It is important to define the words and faith is such a word that carries power as, Complete trust in what you believe in and hope, faith, and purpose to see it come into manifestation. for example, if a person prays to asks for help from one of the friends regarding any work need to be submitted which he has to bring and then the person does the other project then without any worry on the submitting date he go there with faith that his friend will do it and bring it on that date.
