Causes of Unbelief
In the spiritual life of every single person it is of great importance to have total and complete belief as this fully determines one’s level of Christianity. There tend to be teachings from the Bible that worn on the threat to the spiritual life of a person due to unbelief. Having deep faith as well as belief in one’s heart is a requirement despite being difficult in the eyes of human beings. In Christian life, it requires one to have complete faith and belief to avoid being separated with God. There is strengthening and deepening of one’s faith in return. There is the tendency of believing in the unseen being difficult to many people but there are those who are ready to endure and follow the process to live according to God’s will. Increase in cases of unbelief has been noted in the world today by many people as well as full Christians. The following are some of the causes.
There is the tendency of some people to be ignorant which makes it one of the causes of unbelief. They do not heed to what they are told or rather being taught as they do not see the need to. Teachings on how to believe in Jesus by the Christians are found in the Bible. There to be many people who do not read and listen to the word and therefore do not understand what believing is all about. Also there are those who tends to read the word but do not fully understand it, therefore, leading them to ignore what it entails. There is the tendency of one to move out of faithful ways as a result of this ignorance leading to one to having much focus to living a better one.
Another reason is not being fully convinced to believe. There to be people who hear and read the Bible, but they are not fully convinced by the evidence found in the word. persuading and as well convincing people to have complete faith is what many pastors try to do. A great influence of not believing in the word is caused by different ideas of different people. By reducing this kind ideas and views to more positive ones can greatly help one to improve on the belief that he/she has.
Lastly, what the world tends to offer can be a cause to unbelief. There to be different people who have got different or various perceptions regarding the world. A preference of their knowledge than that of the word is what many tend to do. There is the tendency of the world giving different options leading to not believing in the word. Therefore one has to be much keen while deciding and as well choosing on how to live the life that is as according to how the word requires or by following the influences of this world.
