First of all, the definition of faith is belief without proof, so having faith does NOT prove anything. It simply means that you believe something that you can't prove, otherwise it wouldn't be faith.

Second, you can not choose to believe something, you either believe it or you don't. You can choose to say you believe something (or don't). You can even choose to live your life by it (or not). But that doesn't mean you truly beleive it (or don't believe it). A person has no choice in whether or not they TRULY believe. Therefore, how can one be responsible for their faith or lack thereof?
