Why do some people receive the gift of faith and not others?

I'm in agreement with Melkite.

If you want to claim that heaven is a gift from God that is freely given and none truly deserve, that's fine, that makes sense.  But when the only alternative is eternal everlasting torment, that becomes a bit more problematic, because if the only way for you to avoid this eternal everlasting torment is by something God chooses to give or not give you (which is not based on anything you do), I do not see how this can possibly be reconciled with the notion of a just or loving God.
