    Suppose, all people who follow your religion/God belief suddenly leave without providing any reason.

    Will you also run/leave along with them ? or will you still continue to take your stand alone ? Please answer honestly.

    Kindly note: please do refrain posting in this thread if you don't want to suppose.

    As far as if some one is looking for my answer.

    I think, I am already alone, thank you.

    I'd really want to know the 'why' and be most interested in that.

    If 100% of all followers did it, I'd think they either followed a fad, or they became truly enlightened toward another path.

    I'd have to know the reason though, before making any decisions.

    Why you even care knowing the reason before coming to your decision ?

    Seems like you trust the strength of number of people, rather trusting the script of your religion :)

    It comes down to an old saying: "If everyone walked off a cliff, would you do it too?" Though the meaning might be a bit more broad than that, can probably be changed to say "If everyone walks an unknown path, would you do it feet first too to whatever perils?"

    I would take my stand alone as anyone whose belief/faith is solid would do.
    (I write from the time when I was a firm believer).

    Then why you used the word "Decision" in your reply ? Why some decision to make ?

    I see I worded it confusingly, what I meant was:

    I'm not changing anything without knowing more about the 'why'.

    Otherwise I'll just go with the default and not change a thing.

    So I guess if no explanation is given, and I can't determine the 'why' - there is no decision making process because it's not really much of a decision to just do what you normally would.

    Sometimes it is needed, makes us take stock of our path in life.

    Been there a couple of times.

    All the best, regards Tony

    That's confident reply, tony.
    But, again this line sounds loosing the confident.

    Why you even care happening that ?

    Friend Heyo, Please do take me along with.

    Friend Heyo, from many days I was wondering to ask you a question.
    What is your profile picture ? (Am a jeweler by profession)

    Thus is a quote from a favourite prayer

    ".... Forget not My Bounties while I am absent. Remember My days during thy days, and My distress and banishment in this remote prison. And be thou so steadfast in My love that thy heart shall not waver, even if the swords of the enemies rain blows upon thee and all the heavens and the earth arise against thee.... "

    From this prayer, which is for if anyone is in affliction or grief.

    Bahá'í Reference Library - Bahá’í Prayers: A Selection of Prayers Revealed by Bahá’u’lláh, the Báb, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Pages 209-213

    There is no lack of confidence, I am 100% positive my Faith will grow into a path embraced by the majority of humanity, as many millions have in the past, as such I will never be alone in Faith, for all eternity.

    There is a lot more to life, than this life.

    Regards Tony

    I don't belong to any religion but I have lost almost everything I once had in this world because I speak for our CREATOR. Most of my family, old friends and the false gods I used to own no longer are involved with ME. They think I have lost my MIND but in fact, my MIND is secured for eternity now.
