Not always. Some of us have done extensive work to clear out or at least review what others have taught us that we took on to be true.
Each day should begin with a question. A teacher is always a student first.
Faith is belief in what is true that is unseen and this is something that I am very familiar with and do believe in.
I believe in God because of what I feel inside and I know His faithfulness to us because I have tested Him.
I find Him to be ever faithful but not pushy. He will not force anything but waits patiently because He knows that you are as He created you, innocent and whole/perfect and so is the rest of His Sonship.
The better question might be "Is there sin" Because if there were sin there would be no God because sin implies that someone can pull a fast one over God and then He would no longer be God.
Same thing goes for hell. How can there be a hell and a God who is Love. That is insane.
I could go on but I will stop.
Thank you for your well thought out presentation.
