Belief

BeliefUnderstanding and belief are different. For example, when we say ‘We believe …’ the things that are stated in the Nicene Creed, we are not saying that we understand them. What belief means in this context is ‘trust’, i.e. we place our trust in the truths that are represented by these words and concepts which are in the Creed.
