I’m told in a Moodle discussion forum:
[The Bible being the Word of God] is a belief completely based on faith.
What is the difference between belief and faith?
Of course, I’m not talking about trusting someone – that kind of faith is common. For instance, I have faith that in the near future – to the best of your ability – you’re going to take interest in your studies. I have good reason to believe this to be true based upon my experience. That sort of faith is different, no?
I ask because I find the word “based” interesting. What is the “base” of Christianity and how is it any different than a belief?
