Research work: Salvation History Religion A system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith.

. Unconditional submission of ones self to God. Origin of the word Marcus Tullius Cicero of Rome, or popularly known as Tully, derived the word religion from relegere which means go through again, read again. However, popular etymology among the ancients and other modern writers reinstated gere with gare, Bond between humans and gods. Another is religiens, careful, the antonym of negligens. Faith Confidence in a person or thing. Belief that is not based on proof. Belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion. Belief Self-reliance in the existence of something not immediately susceptible to rigorous proof. Believe Verb form of the word Belief To have self-assurance in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so. Trust A person on whom or thing on which one relies. Reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, of a person or thing. Difference between Faith and Trust Faith is something we have. As He reveals Himself and His Love to us, this "knowing" of him in our head (knowledge), and in our heart (beliefs), is the substance, our evidence, of Him and His Love. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrew 11:1

Trust is something we do. It is faith in action. It is the manifestation of our faith in our thoughts and actions. While faith says "He can... Trust says "He is... and I will think and act accordingly! It is far easier to have faith in God; there are unbelievers who have this. It is a lot harder to exercise trust in Him. Difference between Belief and Believe Belief is a noun; the feeling of certainty that something exists or is true. On the other hand, Believe is a verb; to think that something is true, real, or correct. Example: (Belief) His belief in God gave him hope during intricate times. Example: (Believe) I believe that one day, I will be a successful man. Difference between Old and New Testament Both the Old Testament and the New Testament are forms of the Holy Book of the Christians, the Bible. The Old Testament gives the commandments and relating blessings and curses while the New Testament clarifies that God granted the precious commandments as referring to a need for salvation and never means of salvation alone. The Old Testament also details the sacrificial system the Israelites received to hide their sins for a temporary period while the New Testament clarifies that the system actually referred to the sacrifice of Christ only through whom salvation is possible. Man was separated from God through sin states the Old Testament while the New Testament declares that man can renew and regain his relationship with God. It is the Old Testament that helps us understand Gods promises and the New Testament shows us how they have and will come to pass. The Old Testament tells us why the Jews were looking for a Messiah while the New Testament takes us to the Gospels. It is the Old Testament that helps in the identification of the Messiah as Jesus of Nazareth because of intricate prophecies about him including those relating to his birth, manner of death, resurrection, etc. Several Jewish customs are sketchy in the New Testament and their complete understanding can be obtained from the Old Testament alone. The New Testament actually records, in Gospels, the fulfillment of several prophecies that were made in the Old Testament. Several prophecies in the New Testament are based on those in the Old Testament. However, since the New Testament continues the flow of revelation, it helps bring out greater clarity about teachings that were often not very clear in the Old Testament.
