Do you feel that "faith" will always get you through and that "god" will always be there and catch you if you fall--that your "faith" and "god" are a guarantee so to speak--i used to think they were--but i met up with my church leaders recently and they told me that even though you have "faith" there is no guarantees--now i know there is no guarantees in life--but if that is really the case--then why have "faith" and believe in "god"---if there at least isn't some type of "guarantee" or help i might as well believe in nothing and go it alone---any comments here--really what is the point to believe or trust in a "god" or have "faith" , or pray, etc. if there is no guarantee????Answer Question

You just described life as an atheist! We go through life on our own two feet and the love of our family and friends is all the support we need.
There are NO guarantees in life (except death and taxes) and the atheist expects none.
