Faith vs. Belief

The attitude of faith is the very opposite
of clinging to belief, of holding on.
- Alan Watts

Faith is much better than belief.
Belief is when someone else does the thinking.
- R. Buckminster Fuller

Faith is not belief.
Belief is passive.
Faith is active.
- Edith Hamilton

Can you imagine a life with no fear?
What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats?
- Max Lucado

The Bible is self-contradictory,
so a belief in the Bible as God's literal truth
requires that one pick and choose,
which generally consists of clinging to the choices others have made.
In contrast, Faith in an Omnipotent and Benevolent God
doesn't even require reading, listening to, or speaking a single word.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
