I like that phrase, "People of faith." We call ourselves, "Christians." Perhaps in the future you could use that phrase too: it is accurate you know.

According to Paul, believers are supposed to have faith, hope, and charity. But the greatest of these is charity.

Are you people of charity? or not?

I have faith (confidence) in the human spirit. I have hope in the future of mankind. I have a genuine love for "people of peace" and goodwill.

And I don't need a god for any of it.

So I guess I am also among the "people of faith". I just don't have faith in a god.

Are you OK with that?

to The Atheist. You are right: almost everyone has faith. Faith in Jesus Christ is the highest form of faith. It is the faith that projects us into eternal life. Even during mortality we can believe in and experience the joys of eternal life.

I respect you. I believe (and have faith) that you are one of God's children, just like me and every other human. He loves you. He will provide a way for you to have eternal life. Either in this life or after death, you will receive the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as your savior and thereby gain eternal life.

May he bless you.
