You cannot have enlightenment without faith and love. Faith and love are the seeds to enlightenment.
It is said that faith without works is dead. I would say that works without faith are empty.

I think I'm intepreting this differently from Vesuvius, so apologies if I am intepreting wrongly.I think you're asking - if we already have faith and love why would we seek enlightenment? - I think the search for enlightenment comes from a deep yearning within us to 'know' who we are on an experiential level. We may believe in God on an intellectual level and have a lot of love in our life, but if we don't 'feel' that connection to our Source we just feel as though there is something missing - hence that search for enlightenment.

well for me enlightement was done with clean mind and hearth! with no fear of anything and with out believing in annything! i add enuff faith to have no fear! as for love and faith it is part of every one even if people don't manifest it! lets say that god prefer you to be simple and pure! making a show and saying i love every one and i have faith! does not impress him so much! to say something and to be something is 2 different things! and people can't hide that from god!
