  • The difference is Dogma.
    Religion tells you what you can and cannot do in order to be in their special club-
    Faith allows you to lead yourself through the assistance of God (like the footprints poem)

    Religion is not of God
    Faith is

  • In my opinion faith is something that is personal, a belief in something that there is no proof of. And religion is the organized gathering of people of a particular faith. I dunno if that is right or not.

  • Faith is believing

    Religon has rules and a certain "book of guildlines to follow"

    Do you get what i am trying to say?

  • FAITH-Hebrews 11-1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for , the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11-6 But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that is he, and taht he is a rewarder of them that diligently (KJV).

    RELIGION-  Its not about a religion his about a relationship with Jesus Christ!!!!

    Hope it helped God bless you Love ya in Christ

  • Religion is the practice of a set of beliefs, usually involving rituals of some sort, that tells it's followers how to live.

    Faith is believing in something or someone bigger than ourselves without needing proof and without needing to follow a religious doctrine.

  • Faith is a personal relationship with god.

    Religion is a greedy organisation that uses fear and ignorance to control the masses.

  • My pastor always says religion is endured, salvation is enjoyed. People have to realize that there are some things that God does expect us to do, but when you are doing those things as a routine with out your heart being in them, to me that is religion.

  • faith= a trust and love in a spiritual being or beings
    religion=organized, boobs, set rituals or worship service

  • Susie ~ You are like me. I have faith -- spirituality but I don't reform to a religion. Religions have too many rules on what you should believe. I have my own ideas and thoughts on what I believe based on all different religions.
