Faith, Hope and Love

In her article Hope vs Faith or Faith and Hope, Sharon Blake notes that Faith and Hope are defined in the dictionary as follows; Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing or a belief not based on proof and Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation or desire. Faith says it is so now, and hope says in the future it could happen. –

Nate Phelps, in his TED Talk titled “Faith, Hope and Love”, explains that hope seems to be a rather benign condition, because it doesn’t actually promote action as it waits with bated breath for an outcome once action is taken. He goes on to explain that faith is belief not sustained by logical proof or material evidence. – Then he challenges faith, and the broad acceptance of the idea that faith is all good, by sighting events of 9/11 and the faith held by the 19 terrorists… But, this is not the end of his message. –

Somnieng Houern has touched the lives of thousands in his native Cambodia. In his TED Talk, Harvard-educated former monk shares his personal story of survival, why he believes hope is the most powerful force in the world and what he’s doing to bring that power to the most vulnerable. –

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13
