Keeping faith

• As we are now in the Season of Advent preparing for the celebration of the birth of Jesus, I can understand John O'Connell (Letters December 3) defining faith as "a form of happiness". But this is too superficial a definition for a Christian.

According to the Bible: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen"(Hebrews 11:1).

The Christian believes that faith is a test of true belief and Peter 1:7 states: "These trials will show that your faith is genuine."
