"Some people loose their faith because heaven shows them too little, others because heaven shows them too much."
What do you think?
My belief is they lose their faith because they show heaven too little, then expect miracles in their lives.
I think the reason why people lose their faith is because of some denomination stress that if you sin you will not go to heaven. I lost hope for a while because I experienced this in the church I grew up in. Then I found the hope and renewed my faith when I developed a personal relationship with Jesus.
Read Deuteronomy 8:3. No one is saved or baptized in the name of no other, neither do they live by the every word of no other than God. Jesus gives anything we ask in His name according to God's Will in true faith
How inspiring! It is sad but true that many people turn away because they are confused and don't have a safe place where they can really get answers to issues and struggles in their life. That's why love is so important.
MMy thoughts are people loose faith due to a lack of understanding of God's word. I believe it's normally a test or trial that causes one to waver in faith. The Bible illustrates a vivid picture of what heaven is like, it also shares with us the loving Father who truly wants us to make heaven our eternal resting place. If we focus on the love of our heavenly Father, we can have a glimpse of what heaven is like.
Oh, this is a tough one. I feel that people lose their faith when they are subject to more grief than positive energies in their life. I have a sneaking suspicion that it is more likely to happen to someone who lacks supportive friends/relatives.
I guess it all depends on your look on things.Whether you are a christian or not, its good to look at what we have.Others may not be as well endowed.Sometimes the heavens deny us what we ask for and give us what we need.That is the whole essence of having God as supreme and the rest of us as his children.I have learnt to be slow,patient and to trust God without insisting too much on what i think should happen.
Heaven, as it is described, sounds like a terrible place, really. After I really thought about it, the only reason I wanted to go to heaven was because the default was hell. Now that I know neither exists, I have no reason to believe any of this, and prefer to live my life in reality.
Getitrite: I love "because the default was hell". I hear you loud and clear and would assume that you have a high value on and reverence for the life you're leading and the legacy you're leaving. Best Wishes
Billie, I live my life free from the dictates of people who lived thousands of years ago, and knew much less about reality than I do. If I did anything else, I would be deceiving myself.
There are those who have faith, and then those who lose faith because they didn't have real faith. Heaven gave us Christ- is this not sufficient evidence to prove the love of God? That God gave up His own Son to pay the infinite penalty of sin? Those who keep waiting for a "sign" because if "they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead" ( Luke 16:31 ). Once people who want certain signs receive them, they will only continue to find more personal issues to use as doubt. God has given ample sufficient evidence in His Word for even the most doubtful to become the most faithful; God will not be held reliable for selfish doubts when His Word is easily accessible.
Doubt enters. It is an extremely big problem in the spiritual life. Even when the Christ did miracles, people still doubted. Doubt in a sense, is a part of the journey. Constant vigilance and ceaseless practice are necessary to avoid doubt. One also needs the company of similar minded people.
Faith can also be lost because we feel the struggle is too great or we are full of expectations. The saints speak of loving God for God's sake, not for quick fixes when we suffer or are ill. The loss of true faith, if that is possible, is temporary. Everything is stored or recorded, and so when we are ready, God gives us the opportunity to start again. Loss of faith is usually due to dryness or distractions. Much love.

Do you believe non-religious people, who lead a good life, are still going to hell?One of my biggest frustrations with religion is the idea that, how you live your life is of no consequence if you do not accept god. For example, John Smith is a good christian man who helps people, obeys the law and...

I honestly think there are a lot of jobs in which the people who work them deserve a higher pay. Likewise, there are jobs in which people are paid far more than what they're contribution is worth. Where do you think you fall?

How much do we really know?On my 40th birthday I was contemplating my lifes journey and what I have learnt, and I came to this conclusion: The older I get the more I realise how much I know about so little, which is very little about so much! This gives me a hunger to keep learning but also keeps...
