Yes all the time, maybe for social acceptance [or not]

A way of income or I find that it promotes my business

For example "if I'm running for president" then it helps me to associate myself with something seen as "good"

What do you mean by 'faith' Is this to do with Christianity or a faith in a political party, a football team etc.

Of course a believe in anything can be used in other ways. Often it is a distortion of that faith, but many involved in polotics use the contacts they make to further there political career or there buisness.
Christianity suffer as well from those who use it in these ways.

Well faith in football that my team will win, can lead to loss of faith in them when they lose, it still doesn't mean that the team cease to exist or that they have changed , but simply means the bridge between me and them has been altered [or should I say "the goal posts have been moved"] but that faith is a faith not just in what is seen but what is unseen or not yet happened. So I believe in England to win the world cup BEFORE they begin, why ? because I believe they can do it, but at this time my faith is great, however when they lose my faith dwindles or may be diverted onto another team to win instead.

And so worldly faith or the faith that everyone has is the faith of accepting and trust of being broad minded and using ones imagination, to think out of the box in matters of career and prosperity, to hope for things that do not yet exist.

But Godly faith or biblical faith is believing with no proof [blind faith] it goes against the grains of the world, because rather than benefiting us - it may well do the opposite. As with Abraham and Sarah the promise was not for them but for future generations and as for Moses who died before entering the promised land.

As for all the early Apostles of the Church meeting with a cruel end or John being dipped in boiling oil but surviving to see His revelation ! how did this revelation benefit him ? it by far benefited future generations. Often times Christian faith means a change from the inside and it means effort on our part. Whereas worldly faith goes along with our own "wants" or "agenda".

I'm talking about "Christian Faith" that becomes after repentance

In the same way as in giving out - God increases
