Wrong posting


Explanation:
Seems like you have posted the wrong language combination.

Anyway, just in case - faith translates as 'la foi/ la croyance' in French

It is defined as follows:
Adhésion ferme de l'esprit à une vérité révélée, ou à un ordre de choses dépassant le simple domaine de l'expérience (exemple: la foi religieuse)

- la foi véritable procède d'un saut
au-delà de ce que la raison nous enseigne.

foi (en Dieu)


Explanation:
I couldn't help you much in Chinese. In Conficianism and Bouddhism, there is no direct reference to God. Try to explain what is trust in someone you honor. Christianity is more individualised than oriental beliefs, you cannot compare those concepts.
