I need a single word, a noun, that combines the meaning of the words 'faith' (in the religious sense) and 'discernment'. The word needs to fit in the sentence "Bob wants to have [insert word here]".
Basically, I want a word that says "this individual is careful about placing his loyalty in the correct truths". So he has discernment about where he places his faith.
I feel like there has to be a word for this. It's a very specific meaning, but in all the long history of all religion I feel like SOMEBODY has to have come up with an English word for this. The closest I've gotten so far is "wisdom" and just allowing the religious context give the word some religious connotation. Maybe you can help?
