What is your definition of belief


How a person imagines God is a question of faith.

Faith is a strong inner belief. It concerns the question of who or how God is. A believer is convinced that God exists. He also trusts in this God for many things, especially the afterlife.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam are religions of faith. You each have a clear creed. This is a summary, so the core of what people believe in. Many scholars, however, disagree on the question of whether belief and religion are the same in these people. There are subtle differences and a great many different opinions.

There are no creeds in Hinduism and Buddhism. These two religions describe a path to enlightenment and do not have a savior God. Atheists have no faith either. The Greek syllable "a" is a negative, "theos" means "God". So for these people there is no God at all.

The word "believe" can also mean something like "suspect". Anyone who says: "I think it will rain tonight" is not expressing a religious conviction, but an assumption. However, this is not a belief in the strict sense of the word.

What creeds are there?

The most important creed in Judaism is: “Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord alone! And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might. ”The Jews call Abraham an extraordinary example of such faith.

Christians read numerous creeds in the New Testament. For example, people said to Jesus: “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God!” Paul wrote: “Christ died for our sins. He was buried and woken up again. He showed himself to his disciples. ”For a long time Christians were largely in agreement on these creeds.

Over the centuries, however, opinions diverged. People had different ideas about how to get to heaven. Reformed, Catholics, and Orthodox have had extensive creeds since the Reformation. These are largely the same in terms of content, but also differ in essential ideas.

The creed of Islam reads: "I testify: There is no god but Allah and I testify that Mohammed is his servant and his messenger." This creed is the first pillar in Islam. There are a total of five such pillars or pillars all of Islam.
