    develop a faith

    Would you please judge this sentence only with respect to English. Self-made sentence.

    "The movie developed a faith and that faith became a religion by time.


    Thank you.

    I don't understand it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: develop a faith

    I'm not sure what you mean, either, but I think the last part of the sentence should be:

    ... and in time this faith became a religion.

    Hi, hhtt21. Can you flesh out that sentence with a few sentences? "By time" does not work for me at all. Do you mean "after a certain period of time"?

    Re: develop a faith

    I guess it means "The movie inspired faith, and this faith became a religion over time."

    Re: develop a faith

    Did the faith exist before the movie?

    Re: develop a faith

    hhtt21: are you sure you don't mean something like "a cult following" instead of "a faith" in that?
