Why does Almighty God allows our faith to be tested?

Report as

To see if we have a strong faith. To see if we will stand up for Him and stay strong in Him through anything.

Because he wants to know if we are loyal to him because he loves us

When we ask why God tests us, or allows us to be tested, we are admitting that testing does indeed come from Him, as clearly taught in Scripture. Although we are forbidden to test Him (Deuteronomy 6:16; Matthew 4:7), when God tests His children, He does a valuable thing. David sought God’s testing, asking Him to examine his heart and mind and see that they were true to Him (Psalm 26:2; 139:23). In both the Old and New Testaments, the words translated “test” mean to prove by trial. Therefore, when God tests His children, the purpose is to prove that our faith is real. Not that God needs to prove it to Himself since He knows all things; rather, He is proving to us that our faith is real, that we are truly His children, and that no trial or test will overcome that faith! :)

I hope this helped!

To see if we have any faith and to see if we're loyal to God or not. If you fail these tests, you have no faith in God.

Hold on if god is " all knowing" why would he test us to see if we have faith in him. I don't believe testing is to prove anything to God but to ourselves !

Allah says :

( 2 ) Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe" and they will not be tried?

( 3 ) But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars.

( 4 ) Or do those who do evil deeds think they can outrun Us? Evil is what they judge.

( 5 ) Whoever should hope for the meeting with Allah - indeed, the term decreed by Allah is coming. And He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

( 6 ) And whoever strives only strives for [the benefit of] himself. Indeed, Allah is free from need of the worlds. Quran (29:2-6)

I'd say "because there is no god" but you'd prolly just take that as a test of faith.

1. To create patience. We only develop patience when we have something to be patient about.
2. To prove our character.
3. Like a forge, to steel us for use.
4. To perfect the saints for further service.
5. To allow us to experience the suffering of Jesus, and to join him in the "carry your cross daily" experience.

Agree - God himself DOES NOT test us - however, the operative word - He DOES allow us to be tested.
