To lose faith in God is to lose faith in yourself. When God is out of your life if you had a strong faith before, there’s not much to live for. When faith is gone, there is no life. If there’s no faith, there’s no will to go on. Alive? Who is alive without God, there’s no one to thank, no one to praise. If there’s no faith, then life it self does not exist. The Jews needed the faith to survive day by day. With what the Nazis did to them it was hard to hold on, to go on. They needed something to live for. Some Jews lost faith, others somehow in their ways kept their faith strong, others just in life gave up.
Faith plays a huge role in our lives. It decides where we end up, how far we will go, what road we will take, what breath will be our last. Maybe the Jews lived by that, fought for that, praised for that. Others gave up on that, died with out that, they lost their last breath in the ashes of their faith being…. gone. Identity is who you are, what you are. When a piece of it is gone, it somehow falls apart. When faith is gone, God is gone. When he is gone, your protector is gone. Although some lost faith, He still cared for them just as much as the ones who still believed in him, who lived for him.
When you have nothing to believe in there’s nothing to live for, nothing to pray for. It was obviously very easy to lose faith.
