What Leads to Unbelief
Having total and complete belief plays an important part in determining the level of Christianity of a person in spiritual life. The teachings from the Bible warns on the threat to the spiritual life of a person due to unbelief. It requires one to have deep faith and as well believe in one’s heart even though it may seem difficult in the eyes of mere human beings. Separation with God comes as a result of unbelief as in the Christian life it requires one to have complete faith and belief even in the impossibilities. There tends to be strengthening and deepening of one’s faith as a result of this. Living according to God’s will requires one to read and understand the Bible and as well believing in the unseen not being difficult to the one who intends to endure and follow the process. There tends to be an increase in cases of unbelief by many people in the world that we are living in today. Below are among the many causes of this.
There is the tendency of some people to be ignorant which makes it one of the causes of unbelief. There is the tendency of some people not seeing the need to heed to what they are being told or rather taught. The Bible teaches Christians how to believe in Jesus. By many people not reading and listening to the word they do not understand what believing is all about. There is the tendency of some to read the word but do not fully understand it, therefore, leading them to ignore what it entails. With this ignorance, one tends to move out of faithful ways and does not have much focus in changing his life to a better one.
Another source of unbelief is not being fully convinced to believe. some people hear and as well read the Bible, but they are not fully convinced by the evidence found within God’s word. By giving examples of what Jesus taught, many pastors to persuade as well as convince many people to believe. some people have different ideas regarding the word which greatly influences them not to believe. By reducing this kind ideas and views to more positive ones can greatly help one to improve on the belief that he/she has.
Finally, what the world tends to offer can be a source of unbelief. Different perceptions regarding the world are available to many people. There is the tendency of many people to prefer their knowledge much more than that of the word. Seeing like the word is not true comes as a result of different options given by the world thus making one change. 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.
