I was, essentially, converted by Hebrews 11. It's a bit of an existential crisis vs crisis of morality. When you want to do X, Y, and Z, but those things appear to be illogical and not supportive of personal survival or pleasure. When you're trying to figure out what IS wrong, and WHY it's wrong, and your view is faded.
And trying to find a home.
I believe faith is a much more loaded word than just "Oh, I believe in God". It's more akin to what Lewis described as Joy.
Indeed I agree, faith is far more than a belief in God. I pursued the knowledge of Truth for a long time but I found knowledge came sorrow and grief.
