Is there a difference between faith and belief?

I am a faithful contributor or listener . I believe it is good to contribute to charity .
It seams faith is related to action . Belief , there is no action ?
Absolutely there is a difference. Beliefs can be held for many reasons. Faith is one of those reasons, which amounts to "I just want to".
Is it not more "because I need to".
To some extent, faith is a measure of how strong your belief is. You can believe in God but have little faith that He will have any effect on your life.
That is so in a materialistic life . but in a spiritual life it will be the opposite ?
I don't think there's much of a difference between a "materialistic" life and a "spiritual" life.
In spiritual life we believe in the future and have hope . In materialistic life we have only the present and you can not have hope
I really doubt that.
Com on guy Bullshit is not educational. I like to hear other opinion . I stated mine , what is your position ?
Eternity makes a mockery of the value of life.
What's more rare and precious? A rose that blossoms for a day and then fades? Or a mass produced molded rose that will exist in all it's plastic perfectness until long after cockroaches go extinct?
I'm not sure why this thread is in "Linguistics". Are you just looking for dictionary definitions?

My mother was a witch. She was burned alive. Thankless little bitch.
Oi whey friend you had something smoke or sniff, pretty soon you are going to fly on a broom.
I don't think so . Life is a great experience of past present. Eternity is a projection of life for the future.
In the "spiritual life" you have false hope. (Different people with different beliefs have different hopes and they can't all be true.)
In the "materialistic life" - which I will interpret as a life without spiritual mumbo-jumbo - there is hope that our own efforts will have a good effect. We can look forward to real benefits from our real actions.
Faith is the belief in things not seen. While belief is connected to both things seen and/or not seen. I believe we landed on the moon in the late 1960's, due to the images and video I saw on TV. I have faith that the images and videos I saw were on the up and up. I did not personally see all the equipment, to prove this with my eyes. I have faith this was not a scam.
Often our beliefs are based on faith in other people, like leaders and teachers who tells us things. We don't always know their motives and how well thought out this is or whether this is charismatic bias.
