Is life the only thing God gave to those with horrible lives? Is that worth faith?


In a journey to understanding a thought process by many, I see many believe in God because of all he has given them. What about people who have been given nothing and have led a hard life? Are they believing because of only the life (being allowed to be born) they have? It seems some of belief is either conditional (those who have led good lives don't need to question) or something people run to when they have problems. So for those who find no comfort in God during hard times, is their life(birth) the deciding factor for faith? (Question based on the many who claim God gave them life.)

    Beautiful, CV. Patience and humility help to soften the heart. Many a criminal finds the karma of the next life working its magic on them, if they are willing to accept the gift

    Again they aren't a horrible life, they have lived a horrible life. Two seperate things.

    "God gives equal opportunities to everyone at every stage of our lives." What about the children born sick, the people born in third world countries, and so on. Are they really given equal opportunities? Should they have faith just because given life

    Faith as perfection of confidence - very novel and striking expression indeed. Inspiring.

    ON the other hand if you've seen amazing things that no amount of work on your part could have produced, or been produced by any human, and you fail to wonder if there isn't a God, let alone give credit, then you're poverty is great indeed.

    But you don't have to wait till you croak to get that gift.

    The kingdom is within each of us. God created us in his image and likeness and he is not Homo sapiens. Ego has blinded us from the light.

    Spot on answers, that is why religions attract the poor and uneducated. They inculcate them with the premise that poverty is sooo good whereas the more educated and affluent oftentimes see the inanely utter folly of religion.

    And some know God because they know they are not their Homo sapiens vessel. They've experienced being outside and seeing without physical eyes. They have manipulated the universe like Moses parting the sea, or Peter walking on water.
