Losing Faith In God

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

I Lost Faith in God

I Can’t imagine he didn’t help me
I don’t think he is going to save me
I think I lost my faith in God

You may have not heard those phrases directly from someone because of their sensitive nature, however, if you were to look for the meaning behind some of the actions that people do you will find that they reflect those exact meanings.

The aim of this article is to provide an explanation to the process of losing faith , from a psychological point of view, so that you can prevent yourself from losing your own faith in God.

Why do we lose faith

Any normal belief that we have in mind gets challenged when opposing evidence is provided. Each event that happens to us can thus increase or decrease our faith based on the meaning we give to it.

Our interpretations of certain events can thus provide our subconscious minds with conflicting pieces of data. While a part of you might have faith in God the meaning you gave to a certain event can actually go directly against that belief.

If you kept giving negative meanings to all of the events you encounter in your life then you will keep losing faith as bad things keep happening to you. Depending on the ratio of positive to negative events you face you might end up losing faith completely.

Some of the religious people who turned into atheists are wounded people who never managed to explain some of the serious events that happened to them in their lives. The only explanation those people found is that if there was a God then probably those unfortunate events would have never happened to them.

People who have a strong faith on the other hand are the ones who truly understand the deep meaning behind their unfortunate events and as a result they end up having a stronger faith.

Losing Faith

He was a very successful man and his career was prospering. He had a loving wife and lots of nice friends. He Believed In god and his faith in him was strong, or at least, he thought so.

Everything was great until one day he had a big fight with his manager and he was forced to quit his job. In the same time, some of his close friends left to other countries seeking a better future. He became depressed,bad tempered and he started to get mad for the slightest reason to the extent that his wife left him.

At this point he started to think why were all of these things happening to him? Why did God bring him all these troubles? A part of him told him that God had mercy. But another part thought that if he had mercy then how can he leave him like that? Maybe there is no God after all.

When the man found that he was on the edge of losing faith he just stopped thinking and continued living his life normally. He didn’t really knew that has already lost faith but on the subconscious level.

Years have passed, the man found a better job, his friends returned and so he became a kind person again. This motivated his wife to return back to him. The man’s faith became stronger than before. After all it's God who brought him all of these things back. The man thought that his faith was restored.

The truth is that the man’s faith was never restored because it was never lost. In fact he has never had strong faith in God but he just had faith in life.

Why did the Man Lose Faith

When everything was great and when his life was full of joy the man trusted this kind of life. Psychologically, when we get used to a certain life style we tend to think that it will continue forever and so we start to believe in this life style and not in God.

Just see how people in the stock market react when a stock keeps going up for a while. They shortly forget about all fundamental and economic issues then assume that the stock will keep going up forever and as a result they buy it at exaggerated prices.

But when the price stars to fall they face a reality shock. They start to sell assuming that it will keep going down forever and so they sell them at cheap prices. In this story the faith in the economy or the company’s performance is like faith in God in the previous story.

Back to the man who lost his faith. When life turned out to be bad he started to ask himself questions like where is God?

The man's faith was always in his job, in his friends and in his wife but never in God. That’s why when he lost them he lost his faith with them.

When we lose faith our subconscious minds demand solid proofs that supports our old beliefs. If we didn't manage to provide these proofs we might lose faith. In my book "I Saw God" i explained how can scientific facts that prove that there is a God can provide these solid proofs to your mind.

There is nothing called losing faith but there are just people who don’t have faith and people who do. If the faith you have now is because of your Job, your success, your friends or whatever then it's time to shift this faith from those objects to God.

Because when you lose these objects you will tend to think that you lost faith in God but the truth is that you didn’t have any faith in him from the beginning. The faith was in the other Objects you used to have. True Faith becomes stronger when life conditions move against You and not the other way around.

The book "I Saw God" was released by 2knowmyself, The book provides scientific evidence that prove the existence of god, with levels of probabilities that are not subject to debate or revision. The facts are crystal clear and 100% scientific; after knowing these facts, you'll come to the conclusion that there is no other possibility other than the presence of a mighty creator who planned this all.

2knowmyself is not a simple article website nor it's a place where you will find shallow fixes, but it's a place where you will find effective techniques that are backed by psychology and that are presented in obvious and understandable format.
