    Has anyone ever felt their faith in whatever you believe in, just fade away because you've come to the point where you've done everything but still can never be happy
    I feel to be losing my faith in God. I've constantly kept my faith but I guess there's a breaking point for everyone
    Any advice on what to do

    You can be happy without being religious.

    If you really "can't" believe in a God, and I don't blame you in that regard, then you're not obligated to. It's up to oneself to decide what one believes in.

    To interject some anecdotal experience: becoming an atheist/anti-theist helped me reach some degree of mental independence, which, for me, is happiness, contrary to others that find happiness in willful ignorance and absorption. To each their own.

    People sometimes experience feeling low or unsure about certain things but they pass.

    God doesn't exist. Think for yourself, not the herd of idiots. Follow logic and reason. Don't believe anything without evidence because if you do, you are an idiot.
    I wouldn't say idiot, those who are willfully ignorant can be intelligent. I'd rather say irrational.

    I think that's pretty rude actually; you should respect everyone's beliefs as you would expect them to yours, or lack thereof in your case.

    I am a Christian and believe in God, my faith is strong and helps me through life; never would I tell somebody they are wrong for not believing as that is their beliefs and everyone has a right to have their own beliefs.

    I completely understand that. In fact I myself was an atheist before but I've obviously changed now and I just thought to myself wow things got way harder for me even when I kept my faith and prayed.

    If it's depression, I wouldn't advise simply "praying it away", that could worsen it for numerous reasons. I would recommend seeking professional help.

    I think its ********. Religions need to grow to thrive and so religious figures will use many forms of scams to increase the amount of followers they have. More followers leads to more donations. They probably hire actors to put on their shows. Its all a fugazi.

    Most of these cases are confirmed to be fabricated.

    Also, invoking god of the gaps like this is logically fallacious.

    Never lose faith in God because Christian living is not easy. Maybe ask other Christian friends and family to pray for you as well. It's better to share your troubles with other people. It's comforting when you know that there are people who can support you and encourage you. God bless<3

    None of us 'religious people' have tried to dissuade you from your beliefs. Can you not just let people have their own beliefs without shoving yours on other people?

    I would say don't give up as God has a plan for us all and will make it all apparent soon. I had a pretty bad year last year but my faith got me through it before I told my family what was happening and sought help etc.

    Just have faith and be paitient

    It was rude and uncalled for, but beliefs do not automatically deserve respect. We must respect the right to beliefs, but not necessarily the beliefs.

    Do you respect the belief in invisible unicorns?

    I'm a Christian too and being a Christian I've learnt that keeping my faith in God is the way to get thru things and prayer but for some reason it's not working. I may be doing something wrong but I don't wanna lose my faith because I've felt the change in me but I'm just breaking to a point where I question it

    Well no. The beliefs religious people have prevent us as a species from advancing forward for greatness in terms of scientific advancements and many other things. Religion has blocked the path of science. The cure for cancer would have probably been found by now if religion didn't exist. So the less idiots there are, the better.
    And beliefs like yours prevent us as a species from advancing forward for greatness in terms of level of respect and tolerance. The cure for ignorance would have probably been found if your beliefs didn't exist. So the less idiots there are, the better.

    Does it sound like depression?
