The foundation of Christianity is faith and so also it is also in the Jewish Tradition. The idea of faith came up at work while attending a client whose doctor was Asian (do not know exact bloodline) He mentioned I was a man of faith where as he was not. What exactly does that mean? Eastern religions depend on individual accomplishments, discipline and awareness unlike faith based religions rely on divine guidance, discipline and high morales. Commonly both Eastern and Faith based belief system hold Love as the eternal objective to life and living.
