It is my observation that the church has no faith because they are doing what is right in their own sight just as they did in the book of Judges which is LAWLESSNESS i.e. antinomianism. Grace does not give Christians freedom from obedience. They may have Jesus as savior but not Lord/King. He will answer those who are lawless by the idols in their hearts, give them what they want, and tell them what they want to hear Ezekiel 14:1-4. It often is a disaster. Judges 20:1-48

The second reason, at least in the US, is rebellious attitudes. Americans are under a principality of rebellion as this is the foundation of the nation i.e. the American Revolution. If you read Matthew 8:5-13 you will see why a respect and understanding of authority is important to having/exercising faith.

The third reason is most in the west have the Greek/Roman mind set which means they need evidence/proof before they believe much of anything. This is EXACTLY the opposite of Bible faith Hebrews 11:1. This is manifested in the fact that most need evidence from "creation science" to believe Biblical creation. It is one of the first things Christians are to believe with NO sense evidence based on God's word alone Hebrews 11:1-3. They prove their lack of Bible faith by being defensive, suing school systems, and generally getting ugly with groups or institutions who advocate evilution.

There is much more wrong with this Greek/Roman mindset as well, including the pervasive belief among Christians in humanism. They make God just as the Greeks did, in their image and reasoned understanding. They believe that majority rule is the way God wants His church run instead of led by the Holy Spirit who is NOT a democrat or democratic. They believe democracy is God's government when He is an absolute monarch. Democracy and rights are the cornerstone of humanism. Belief in humanism removes faith in God's sovereign control using believing prayer and intercession from His saints which is their duty and honor as citizens of His kingdom.

Legalism is also a reason for no faith. Here is how Jesus defines legalism:

Matthew 15:6-9

New King James Version (NKJV)

6 then he need not honor his father or mother.’ Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. 7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:

8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And[c] honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
