What Does “Faith” Mean?
On my way to the airport this afternoon, the taxi cab driver told me a long story about how he bit a man’s ear off during a fight, and isn’t allowed to have contact with his son, and was put into jail for eight months after he messed up his girlfriend’s apartment.
I’m not sure what the lesson on his story was supposed to be, but as I opened up the door of the car to leave, he finished with the line, “… but I don’t worry about a thing, because I have faith.”
Can anyone explain to me, in this context or any context, what the word “faith” means? I’m beginning to suspect it’s just a synonym for the phrase “hey, what are you gonna do?”
