When I engage believers in conversation and they say, “You have to have faith to believe in god, I believe because I have Faith.” I answer them. Adam and Eve didn’t have faith. Cain and Abel didn’t have faith. Noah, Abraham, Lot, Moses, Aaron, Mary, and Jesus just to name a few, didn’t have faith. They actually heard god, spoke to god, and saw god, or some symbol of his presence, one even thought he was god. I suggest it was easy for them to believe in god, but it has never been easy for those who have not witnessed god to believe, even those that got the story first and second hand could keep their faith. The Hebrews that followed Moses out of Egypt and saw the miracles god performed, didn’t believe enough to stay faithful. Eve didn’t believe that god had a no-tolerance policy concerning his rules. Apostles denied god in the flesh. If I lived thousands of years ago, and heard a disembodied voice talk to me from a burning bush, or a floating angel say he was speaking for god, I would probably believe it was god, but why would anyone I told that story to believe me? Would a believer, believe me now? No they would want proof, although some have, check out The Peoples Temple, Branch Davidians, Heaven’s Gate, or any of the cults that have come and gone. What did Jesus call them, sheep?
