[ ETymology Uhv ] faith (n.)

mid-13c., faith, feith, fei, fai "faithfulness to a trust or promise; loyalty to a person; honesty, truthfulness," from Anglo-French and Old French feid, foi "faith, belief, trust, confidence; pledge" (11c.), from Latin fides "trust, faith, confidence, reliance, credence, belief," from root of fidere "to trust,"from PIE root *bheidh- "to trust, confide, persuade." For sense evolution, see belief. Accommodated to other English abstract nouns in -th (truth, health, etc.).

From early 14c. as "assent of the mind to the truth of a statement for which there is incomplete evidence," especially "belief in religious matters" (matched with hope and charity). Since mid-14c. in reference to the Christian church or religion; from late 14c. in reference to any religious persuasion.

And faith is neither the submission of the reason, nor is it the acceptance, simply and absolutely upon testimony, of what reason cannot reach. Faith is: the being able to cleave to a power of goodness appealing to our higher and real self, not to our lower and apparent self. [Matthew Arnold, "Literature & Dogma," 1873]

From late 14c. as "confidence in a person or thing with reference to truthfulness or reliability," also "fidelity of one spouse to another." Also in Middle English "a sworn oath," hence its frequent use in Middle English oaths and asseverations (par ma fay, mid-13c.; bi my fay, c. 1300).

Suffix ism in Funetik Inglish iz Simp Lang Izm

Suffix izm

IPA(key): /ɪzəm/, /ɪzm̩/


Ultimately from either Ancient Greek -ισμός (-ismós), a suffix that forms abstract nouns of action, state, condition, doctrine; from stem of verbs in -ίζειν (-ízein) (whence English -ize), or from the related suffix Ancient Greek -ισμα (-isma), which more specifically expressed a finished act or thing done.

Many English nouns in -ism are loans of Greek nouns in -ισμός (mostly via Latin and French), such as Judaism from Ἰουδαισμός (a learned English formation based on Latin, coined ca. 1500). In Late Latin, the -ismus suffix became the ordinary ending for names of religions and ecclesiastical or philosophical systems or schools of thought, thus chrīstiānismus (whence 16th c. Christianism) in Tertullian, a trend continued in Medieval Latin, with e.g. pāgānismus attested by the 8th century. From the 16th century, such formations became very common in English, until the early 18th century mostly restricted to either root words of Greek or Latin origin (heroism, patriotism) or proper names (Calvinism, Lutheranism). Productivity from root words with evidently non-Latin and non-Greek origin dates to the late 18th century (e.g. blackguardism). Reflecting this productivity, use of ism as a standalone noun is attested by Edward Pettit (1680) and becomes common from the mid 18th century.

Suffix -ism

  1. Used to form nouns of action or process or result based on the accompanying verb in -ize.
  2. Used to form the name of a system, school of thought or theory based on the name of its subject or object or alternatively on the name of its founder ((when de-capitalized, these overlap with the generic "doctrines" sense below, e.g. Liberalism vs. liberalism):).
  3. Used to form names of a tendency of behaviour, action, state, condition or opinion belonging to a class or group of persons, or the result of a doctrine, ideology or principle or lack thereof.
  4. Used to form nouns indicating a peculiarity or characteristic of language.
  5. Used to form names of ideologies expressing belief in the superiority of a certain class within the concept expressed by the root word, or a pattern of behavior or a social norm that benefits members of the group indicated by the root word. ((based on a late 20th-century narrowing of the "terms for a doctrine" sense):)
  6. (medicine) Used to form names of conditions or syndromes

Frum WiKiBin Article Faithism:

Faithism is a religion which is based on faith in an Omnipotent Creator whose name is Jehovih…E-o-ih, Wenohim, Eolin, Egoquim, Ormazd, The All Light, The All Person, The Great Spirit, as well as other names which have been described in the book Oahspe (published 1882 in New York City, USA). Oahspe was presented by Dr. John Ballou Newbrough (1828-1891), as a book received through him by automatic writing. It was contemporary with other channeled material produced through the SpiriTualist MovemenT, which reached its height in the second half of the nineteenth Century in the United States of America.

Oahspe describes Faithism as the first religion and was practiced in its pure state in various locations and eras around the world (details of which can be found in Oahspe). All religions known today, ancient and modern are said to contain the elements of the first religion in more or less purity.

In Oahspe, Quakers (The Religious Society of Friends) are considered FaithisTs at heart, although they don't have the rites and ceremonies that Oahspe generally has. This is so because it is more an evaluation determined by the pacifist and inspirational attitudes of Quakers as a whole, rather then by doctrinal affinity.

Other Faithists described in Oahspe are American Natives who worship the GreaT SpiriT; ancient Hebrews and Judaism which recognize only one Creator ELohim Who is not in the form or figure of a man; the Masons who believe in The Great Architect, Creator and service to humanity; various Eastern religions whose teachings are based on the ancient prophets such as Sakaya, Confucius, Zarathustra; and various other religions described in Oahspe.

Only one religion is based on the teachings that come directly from Oahspe. Faithism is a name Oahspe has given to that religion. While it can be found that there are and have been various organizations as well as individuals who consciously practice the religion of Faithism, these practitioners generally call themselves FaiThisTs. These can be found or have been found, among other places, in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Continental Europe and India. Because [Faithism includes those who presently do not belong to a recognized FaiThIsT organization, the number of practitioners is difficult to estimate.

Doctrines and Discipline:

Progression in an afterlife is one of the main tenets of Faithism, along with faith into a universal, omnipresent Creator who is ever-present and everywhere, whose body constitutes the seen world and whose spirit constitutes the unseen world.
The afterlife is a spirit world where the souls of those who once lived as mortals on the earth pass into after death and where progression is eternal. It rejects reincarnation (See Oahspe's [[[Book of Jehovih, VI 21; Book of God's Word, chapter XXX, 18-20,) and explains…engrafting of earthbound spirits onto mortals as the origin of this belief.

Other doctrines include:

  • To return good for evil and to not war or do any violence.
  • To be herbivorous (vegan), and at least to abstain from eating flesh, including fish and "all which breathes the breath of life." The eating of animal substance is said to contaminate the blood with beastlike emotions such as anger and vengeance.
  • Honoring the teachings of the great prophets who are considered to be inspired by God, based on the light and goodness that these teachings contain rather than on the identities or miracles associated with such prophets.
  • Faithism also advocates living in communities of families in an unpolluted and wholesome environment. According to Oahspe, in ancient times such communities were established by Moses, Sakaya, the Essenes and others in various locations and eras around the world. For modern times, communities are required to take in unwanted and orphaned children to be raised up in knowledge of the Creators, and to be taught in loving, gentle ways, both corporeal and spiritual knowledge.
