must have unwavering faith in Jesus Christ and all of his teachings he has passed on from God. Jesus is not asking for good deeds, practices, or even living your life a certain way, all he is asking for is devoted faith in him and God. In the Christian worldview, you also need reason in order to devote your faith into
God and Jesus Christ. They do not ask you to blindly give them your faith, instead, they give you reason to give them their faith. By giving our faith through reasoning, we are allowing ourselves to learn the ultimate truth straight from God, who knows the truth behind everything in this universe. I myself have an agnostic worldview which is within the realm of an atheistic worldview. In an atheistic worldview, there is faith and reason in the way they understand the world and assert their beliefs. Though they may not give their faith to a divine entity like God, their faith is in the scientific process and the research used to determine things in our universe. Their sense of reason is much more geared toward having factual evidence and data to support their faith in the Sciences and support theories of how we came to be.
