The cognitive nature of faith not only consists of a single phenomenon, but also is formed with the common nexus of multiple acts. Accordingly, faith is an advanced dimension consisting of a network of beliefs. The main components of the cognitive nature of faith comprise internal and environmental information. Although the positional priority of these components varies depending on the socio-psychological composition of the believer, it seems that the components that shape the act of faith are generally individual as feeling, will and act, and social as family, friends, school and socio-cultural environment. In this study, the possibility of effects and consequences of the components that form the main dynamics of the cognitive nature of faith are discussed as a problem within the framework of scientific data from kelam.
