comment What if someone is unable to believe in God?
@Matt wasnt 100% sure what he was asking. then offered my answer that he may need to pursue other avenues such as the shaar bechina of chovos halevavos rather than plain torah study or philosophy.

comment What if someone is unable to believe in God?
@Matt I read in the name of Rabbi Yeruchem of Mir that when he had doubts of emuna, he was instructed to study chumash/rashi. he tried it and said it worked. i thought daniel was going along these lines.
