Loss of Faith= Loss of Life?
1. Some members of our group took a more literal view on the first question. They say yes you are still living because you’re heart is still beating. Others think that if you abandon your faith, you have given up the reason for living in the first place. We feel that if you lose your faith in everything, you are just an empty shell.
2. If you are really strong in your faith, it shapes who you are as a person and how you live your life. People who live their life for God typically don’t do bad things…we can assume anyway. If you don’t live solely for God, you might do things that others may not find acceptable but you don’t regret doing it.
3. Some members of the group say that if you don’t have any faith you aren’t dead because there is a lot more to life than just your faith. So we don’t necessarily think that having no faith could be the equivalent of being dead. We are still alive and coexisting with people who are strong in their faith. We do the same things as them. We live, eat, breath, and sleep just the same as everyone else.
