Life is not worthy living without God in my life daily comforting and guiding me.  There would be no hope for the future without Him.   He is life and He is my light.  

 Jhn 6:67  So Jesus said to the Twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?”   Jhn 6:68  Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life,  Jhn 6:69 and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”

@Leyla Hi. Thanks for posting the question. Scriptures show us that faith is vital. From start to finish. No faith...no salvation.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Hebrews 11:6)

You asked: "What would it take for you to leave your religion? What kind of evidence or other things do you need for that?"

From God's perspective, the only evidence that counts is faith itself, as seen in the verse below.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:6)

This faith causes your spiritual eyes to be opened. You are then able to be born again and become a new creation (As Jayne said, it's like being changed from a caterpillar into a butterfly:))

It's not a religion but a lifelong relationship. What would it take to walk away from Him? I don't worry about this because of HIS character and how much He loves me. My faith is anchored in HIS faithfulness. “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy" (Jude 1:24) Praise the Lord! I hope that helps, Leyla.

AND that IS KEY .    MY FAITH is anchored in HIM , IN HIS FAITHFULNESS .   KNOWING HE is able to give us ALL we need to overcome .  TRUSTING IN THE LORD

and ALL things that HE SAID IS to trust in the LORD .    For whose words are those .   A wise man who walked the earth ,  OR the ONE WHO CREATED ALL THINGS

and BY HIM all things were made and without HIM was nothing made that was made .

OH yes my dear sister .     I know YOU KNOW .     I know you KNOW .    JESUS is not just some wise man .   HE WAS before it all , and by HIM was all created .

The Word was with GOD and GOD is the WORD .   And the word became flesh and dwelt among them .   Did all that was necessary for SALVATION

and was killed and ROSE again and Forty days later ascened back into heaven .   And now those who are HIS and are born again , HAVE THAT SPIRIT within .

AND it is our comfort , it is our GUIDE and if we walk after the spirit we would not fulfill the lusts of the flesh .  AND HE left us a pattern that the apsotels kept

and that pattern ALONE WORKS .   But if any man takes from , omits , changes that pattern , THEY DO SO unto their own destruction and the destruction

of all who do sit under them .     PUT those hands up sister .   RAISE them up and PRAISE THE LORD .    I SHALL NOT LEAVE you comfortless ,

I shall COME UNTO YOU and REICIEVE YOU UNTO MYSELF .  That where I am there you may be also .  HE IS THE SPIRIT as well .   OH put hands up ,  let all rejoice in the LORD .

And now for a fill in .  MY SHEEP hear my voice and they follow me and a strangers voice they will not hear ,  THEY ......................from strangers .

Is saying that nothing can change your mind, something good or is it something dangerous?  Im an ex muslim and the question " what would it take for you to leave your religion? " was my biggest help in leaving something that I consider to be wrong now.  My answers to that question were a flawed holy book, unreasonable  teachings/believes and a lack of proof. If I never questioned these things, then I would have never come so close to christianity, something you strongly assume to be right. What I dont understand is, why we should stop at christianity. We have to always consider the possibility of being wrong. If we dont question everything then we will be stuck with the lies that we are born with forever.

Thank you for the longer post.  The op by itself was unclear as to motive/ purpose ....

Do not stop at christianity.   You are right - not just the possibility of being wrong, but much (most?) of christendom is wrong. (notably all catholicism and whatever goes along with that false gospel).

So, yes, if people don't question everything then they are stuck with the lies that they are born with (or learn later) forever.

As noted in the first page,  a relationship with Jesus, being born again by the Father by His Will from heaven,

is not a religion 

Thus,  we have no religion to leave, per se,  except if we are in one of the false gospels or other religion in sin.

The truth is evidence enough.

Personally, I don't believe in "religion" only in a personal relationship with God and salvation through Yeshua (Jesus). One must study God's word to grow in knowledge and faith however "religions"in my understanding are too man centered as well as controlled rather than God centered.

Amen.

Another possible distinction is this:   While living daily in union with Yeshua ,  echad,  as the Son and the Father are echad,  thus walking in the LIGHT,   the darkness is readily exposed

while in religion(s),   darkness might actually be ruling ! ?  and keeping people from recognizing the darkness,  and stopping them from coming to Jesus ?

There are many deceiving entities/demons out there, according to Scripture,  and warnings about them,  as maintaining our protection from them and not falling prey to them. 

In the LIGHT,  which is JESUS,   they are exposed easily, quickly, and dispersed / sent away.  Not as if by our power,  but by Jesus' Name and Jesus' Power, with the Father, echad.
