Belief is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case, with or without there being empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty.
In other words, belief is when someone thinks something is reality, true, when they have no absolute verified foundation for their certainty of the truth or realness of something.
 Another way of defining belief is, it is a mental representationof an attitude positively oriented towards the livelihood of something being true.
 In the context of Ancient Greek thought, two related concepts were identified with regards to the concept of belief: pistis and doxa.
Simplified, we may say that pistis refers to trust and confidence, while doxa refers to opinion and acceptance.
The English word orthodoxy is derived from doxa. Belief’s purpose is to guide action and not to indicate truth.
So could you call faith belief, or is faith different than beliefs?
