I'm not expert on faith and I probably don't have enough of it but I think God requires faith for at least two reasons:


1) If He made Himself obvious then our belief in Him would no longer be based on faith but on hardcore, undeniable fact. Now my personal faith IS strong enough to believe that God's existence is factual but I would have a hard time convincing a non-believer.


2) I believe God wants us to willingly choose Him based on faith out of our own free will. He knows who believes in Him vs. them who reject Him. He doesn't want to force our acceptance of Him.


Faith is "belief" in that which isn't seen with the naked eye. But, for me, God declares Himself in nature, science, space, and in the eyes and actions of human beings.


But even non-believers have faith in something. They have faith that they can drive down the freeway without getting hit by someone. They have faith that the food they're eating at the local restaurant isn't poisoned. They have faith that the sun will shine each morning. Etc.
