Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Catholic Education and Faith
Faith means different things to different people. In the Catholic Bible, Hebrews Book 11 verse 1 states, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”(Hebrews,2006,11,1). This can be seen as the general Christian view of faith expressed in the New Testament.
Although many of the Christian denominations share this definition of faith in terms of scripture they interpret the scripture in different ways. The term Catholic can be thought of in two different ways. The first way is as a part of a particular Christian tradition. The second way is a ideal to live up to(Cunningham,1987,p.14). This view of the Catholic religion argues that it is based on the institution of the Church...
The end:
.....on this ideal actually look like?
