Does your faith make you a "better person"?

I often find myself asking this question when I come across someone who is very unhappy with life and very judgemental of others. I have to wonder if their beliefs and their faith is aligned properly because people don't inherently seek out being angry or miserable. I feel like your beliefs and world views should make you a better person, not a bitter person, and for those who are bitter... They should really look inward and figure out why their beliefs and outlook on life are not helping them.

 I think having a personal relationship with God and faith in His words can make us better people.  It helps uplift our thinking and teaches us how to improve our behavior. Faith in Him supports us during difficult times to do what is right and brings out the best in us. It stresses the need for humility to others. Knowing that we are being watched and judged by a supernatural omnipotent being (``The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, watching both the bad and the good`` Proverbs 15:3), can help us conform to social and cultural norms.

 Clinging to your faith and believing in God will help you improve your self-discipline.

I don't think the act of believing is what does it, but the fact of using their faith to better yourself and help those in need. We all can believe in whatever we want, but in reality, it's how we use our faith that defines us. That's how I see it anyway.

Not at all. Yes, faith helps us discern good from bad, and incline us to do good. But the choice to always do good comes from within. It is more a personality issue than a faith-oriented issue.
