The opposite of faith is reason.
The opposite of belief is pride.
Faith is not proof or fact.
Belief is not rule or law,
reason expands our understanding,
for the social organization,
providing story for history,
and context for the common good.
We believe in the “unseen”,
sincere prayer and seeking,
confides the Truth with us
pride demands what is in it for me,
mandating a selfish quid pro quo,
requiring tribal loyalty,
threatening to cancel allegiance.
We have faith in the “unheard”,
listening makes us yield,
on the narrow Way.
Faith is form and sign.
Belief is trust and hope.
Faith sees visions.
Belief dreams dreams.
