    For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead. James 2:26 (HCSB)

    Faith has an object. Objective person in Christ or objective truth in the Word.

    Presumption has just feeling or assumptions. Product of our mind, not an outside authority.

    Hebrews 11:1
    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    Faith - Something you do without knowing the outcome.

    Presumption- What you think will happen when you don't have faith :D
