  • They were made to think it was necessary to believe.

  • For the same reason the non-religious don't. We each find our own proof of beliefs. Whatever your beliefs are, whether Christian, Pagan, Buddhist, Atheist or whatever, you have found proof in them, or you wouldn't believe what you do. It's really that simple. Religious people just have different proof than non-religious people...

  • Because their heart tells them so. Why do I believe what I do? B/c my heart tells me so. What do you believe and why?

  • I agree with both sabrina and sahmama

  • I agree with Sabrina. You have found personal proof that has impacted you in such a way, involving heart, mind, body and spirit that it has changed something within you to a such a degree that you have made a commitment or devotion of yourself.

  • Hope and fear. Hope that there's something more, fear that there isn't.

  • I believe because I feel His presence in my life, feel His love.
    It has nothing to do with hope or fear or instruction or even necessity.
    I believe because of the relationship I have with Him.

  • Yahweh saved me from a life of suffering and loneliness. I was caught up in a vicious circle of both and tried to end my life several times. After the last attempt Yahweh came to me, and offered me a chance at life and I took it. Hallelujah! Once I did that the blessings flooded my life, and he then took me under his wing and been teaching me ever since. Hallelujah!

  • I think it is the result of repeated conditioning and emotional attachment to that conditioning.
