    Without question, reproof or validation, these two nouns remain at the base of the foundation in the lying lore of Christianity. Images of hell and damnation dance around in the head of those who accept these concepts. Both are false and both are ineffectual in the practice of true spirituality. Both stagnate and neither are beneficial to the soul.

    Q. Who put them there?
    A. The same false construct that sits atop this structure[​IMG]
    (eg. the temple of Sibyl at Trivoli in Rome, Italy).

    Faith is evidence to those who know truth. In the Father and the Holy Son, faith shows love, trust, and hope in the servants of the Father and the Son, to the Father and the Son always.

    There is more than a fear, when you have true faith, but there is love also; just as with a parent and child. The child may fear the parent's anger and punishment by way of that anger, but the child loves the parents for the care, love, and other rewards that are gained by the relationship with the parent.

    Those with faith know their end, without fear of being lost, but believe in the faith given that we are found.

    True faith is never blind, but is perceiving. Lack of faith is blindness in a world already being run without light.

    Faith = knowledge, understanding, wisdom, because putting in the effort to study brings power switched on by prayer. Equal power to equal faith; pwr = f x s + pr to infinity
