They don't believe for many reasons. 1. Someone who said they were Christian upset them, and now they refuse to believe anything of christianity. 2. it doesn't fit their lifestyles. 3. its cool not to believe. 4. they do believe, but don't want to admit it, because then they have no excuses for who they are. 5. They just don't know. You can't make someone believe something they are unwilling to believe. You can't make anyone believe anything. They have to figure it out on their own. But you can get people to listen to you. Listen to them. Be a good example.

I also belive in Christ. I know some people find it hard to belive without any physical evidence. But they sometimes do not see that the evidence is them who is still alive. Most people have lots of doubts about the bible and practices in the Chuch and when they ask other people in the religious order they could not seem to give a logical explanation but rather they would ask those people to just have faith because they say it is true. Most people have lots of questions have just adds up to their doubts in their faith in the chuch like they would ask why do people make the sign of the cross when it is not even said in the bible to do so. They would also ask why there are statue or images of saints in the Church while it was written in the bible that worshipping of images or idolatry is really a sin. I think some just had their traumas especially during the Spanish colonialization where priests would abuse their powers and authority to control the people and make up belifs so that the people would obey them. I think those times really made a great trauma to most people which cause their faith to weaken.

I am a Christian. I am not perfect but I am a believer. God is good! Everyone in the world are not believers in Jesus and God because either they never heard of it, their parents were of a different religion and taught them to believe the same way, or they simply just don't want to accept Christ, and no one can force them to, that's a decision that they have. God gives everyone a free will to choose. Either you accept or reject. Some people are turned off because of certain types of people. I can't stand judgemental people.

I do not believe in God and it does not make me an Anti-Christ! I don't see what the big deal is. I don't think it's Why Not believe, but Why? I simply don't think there is one, and I live by my own life philosophy that I change as I learn more and more, and I'm really just fine. There's no reason, it's just the way it is.

I'm an atheist. I have seen no proof that there is a God. None of my prayers have awnsered beyond what can be attributed to random chance. The only thing I can conclude from my experences is that there is no God or gods.
