As much faith we loose more fear we develop to anything and everything and hope disappears and love becomes nothing but selfishness disguised as materialism, hedonism, individualism, narcissism, etc.
By abandoning our faith we tend to embrace collectivism because we expect the rest of the world to serve our egos and selfishness thereby we expect everyone to abandon their individuality, identity and their dignity.
We have been created to believe in life and to be positive because we maintain a close relationship with God almighty and omnipotent.
This does not mean that otherwise we would not be sick or feel ill, but it certainly does mean that by living constantly in fear of the government and the powerful with no way out, without direct control on our lives, our bodies cannot subsist in such a state without God.
Throughout history the human person has survived because even if there has been oppression, the nature of the human being has been maintained and life protected. It has been always considered a coward he/she who attempted against the life of children, women and elder, and of course, the incapacitated and help meant to dignify thew person with work, until the cloud of collectivism (socialism, communism, Nazism, etc.) in all its forms, with the currents of fake rationalism, invented the idea that humans wanted not to work and not to procreate, just have 'fun', and sodomize and be 'free' without accountability.
The human person needs of God to be free as Jesus announced us, the truth will set us free.
