is substance of things not seen, the evidence of things hoped for.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Hebrews 11 KJV

i like the above as a definition of faith.

where as it has also been said of faith that it can move mountains, i find there is a corelation between faith and thought. thoughts are essentially framed by words, and thoughts we know can be powerful as the old saying goes "there is nothing so powerful as an idea whose time has come" a good example i think might be the idea of nuclear power.

but anyway, thoughts it seems eminate from things which do not appear (our soul or spiritual essences shall we say) and then thoughts themselvs are not very apparent until they are written down or spoken. so words and complete sentences are sort of condensed thoughts that we can take and turn into active reality in a sense very much like the way the worlds were made by God by the framing of His words. but further it seems that faith is a essential factor in this thing we call thought in that we need to be convinced of 'truths' when we are involved in the thinking process.

hmm am i rambling again here?

regards, tim
