No-one can come on here and tell you what to do sweetie. This is all a matter of personal opinion. You're going to have the believers coming in here telling you to keep praying, but honestly, it's YOUR choice. DO NOT let someone else chose for you. Read the bible, do research, talk to your preacher. Do the foot work yourself!

Do what you truly feel is right for you but personally I feel like you should stick with it. God puts us through trials to test us. This is something that I can't just answer though. Ask me some questions if you still need answers!

You should not resign your faith from God. This is because Gods promises are true and that only those people who believe and have faith in him receive these promises.

If you still believe you should still have faith and every religion non-religion will have people trying to force it on people doesn't mean that their God or non God is bad it's just everyone wants everyone to believe in what they believe

If you can leave it up to others to decide, you don't have faith.

Everyone has doubts at sometime.
That doesn't mean they don't have faith.

Most people go through this at one time or another. It could be what is going on around you causing doubt. Next week something incredible could happen to renew your faith. As another person mentioned, this is a personal thing that only you can find the answer for. Perhaps you might research some other faiths to see if you find something that keeps you closer to God, or even solidifies your current faith even more!

God is awesome! Let me tell you a verse from the Bible. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that who so ever believes in him shall not parish but have an ever lasting life. That means if you believe in him you will live forever with him in heaven. But if you don't believe then you will go to hell. He loves everyone the same. I am saved and hopefully you are to. You don't have to believe me I'm just telling the truth. And he will always be there for you. He puts you through stuff because he knows you can get through it. Please don't doubt God. He his good!! BLESS GOD!!!

A lot of people question their faith in God. I know there are things in this world that are dark, sad, and unfathomable...but that is why we need God. This life is a tiny speck compared the eternity. I also encourage you to talk to God like a friend, pray honestly and ask for him to carry you through this season of doubt. He loves you like a parent should love a child.

You have already made the choice. If you need support there are many of us that used to believe, but like you we began to ask questions and the more we asked the more we turned away. I'm an atheist and I'm happier then when I was a believer, I'm no longer confused about life, or the world, or my place in it, I am at peace.
But this is a journey you will have to make on your own and no one can show you the path. If you can find peace and happiness believing in a god then more power to you, I could not live a life having to lie to myself to make it all believable. Good luck and welcome to the real world :)

You can resign your faith in God or not, but He will never resign His faith in you

It's all about a personal relationship with Him. You always get out of a relationship what you put in.

Maybe its not God or faith that has you concerned. Maybe its that particular religion. There are 41,000 different religions to worship the same God who instructs us how he wants to be worshipped. My guess is that you see something your concerned about. Pray to him and ask him what the Truth is. He will let you know.

I'm atheist and happy to be free from delusions. Why should I go on pretending I believe something that I have no evidence to support? Why should I just trust that the men responsible had my best interest at heart? Is it not more likely, like all things, that powerful men want to convince you of nonsense so they can take advantage? Have you not been fooled enough? Or will they even castrate you until legal bondage and then demand your money for their service? Which is more likely, that there is something that may as well not exist or that intelligent gangsters can even muscle you from your own mind? The truth might taste not as sweet and I think most people in America have a sweet tooth. Fat fat religious people.

Sounds to me like you have never received the Holy Spirit in your life. For the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and will reveal the mysteries of God to you though His Word ( The Bible )

Romans 12:2

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

People are imperfect and flawed, but god is not. Try not to mix up god with the garbage people do. God is all loving, all forgiving and ever expanding. Anything less than this, is not god. Take care.

When your fairh is shaken , it comes from Satan. He will Do ANYTHING to get you to change your mind.
God says in scripture that once you are truely His, rhan nothing can snatch you out of His Hand( isnt it interesting that that word is HAND/not handS).
That one singular word should tell you just how BIG OUR GOD IS.
Dont concentrate on what others say or how you think they should or shouldnt do.
Faith-belief is a two person thing:
YOU AND GOD ALONE. Get with Him and talk it out! Look for His answer!
May God bless you in your search for understanding to strengthen your belief!

God loves you and understands we humans doubt on occasion. Its sad that way back when a group of idiots did what they did to native peoples. Its even sadder that some still try to do that today. God wants us to spread His word but not by force or coercion. He gave free choice to humanity and humans should never take it on themselves to take that away.
That said, you should not allow satan to use the actions of human fools to separate you from God. I understand racial pride and it has its place but dont let satan use it to take God from you. Be proud of your race and culture and be accepting toward those who still live by old beliefs but dont let that come between you and Truth. If you are having doubts the talk to God about them. Tell Him you are having doubts and why and ask Him to help you understand.

If you truly believe in YHWH God, then I'd dare say you'll always believe. Some denominations confuse people & burden them, read the Holy Scriptures with the Councellor & you may be enlightened, & so then unburdened.

Don't resign your faith, trust me. I gave up my faith for a short time and I saw what a huge mistake it was. Life is miserable and meaningless without God and the afterlife. Everything is much better with faith. Life has the potential to be perfect with faith. And as for religion being forced on people in other places, that's people not God doing those terrible things. Don't let bad people turn you away from God. If you don't like the people involved with your religion you can leave the church and still believe in God. You can find a new one or be spiritual but not religious. And if you need proof of God and the afterlife to believe, just ask me and I'll give you good, clear proof that both God and the afterlife exist. I hope this helps!
