Why can't it be belief ?

Chhavi said: (Jan 17, 2011)  
Belief and faith are said to be synonyms.

Sam said: (Jan 22, 2011)  
Faith is +ve in meaning. Belief may or may nt be +ve :-)

Ankush said: (Aug 17, 2011)  
Belief implies mental acceptance of something as true, even though absolute certainty may be absent whereas faith implies complete, unquestioning acceptance of something i.e. something not supported by reason.

So faith is more appropriate.

Why it cannot be substance? The right option is substance (substance means some matter or some point in it).

Faith agrees with 'in' more than other options do.

What is the difference between faith and belief?

Faith and belief have a bit difference, faith is used always in positive sense while belief may or may not used in positive sense. Here best choice is faith.
