Even if Hobbes was a religious person, who said that God is an immaterial being that is the cause of everything, Hobbes’s argument doesn’t give validity to God as a cause, but uses God to validate the argument.

Even if Hobbes couldn’t explain why God exists, he can still be a faithful believer. It’s possible that Hobbes was struggling to believe in something without proof of existence. However, when Hobbes said it’s a natural condition for man to believe in God, it shows at least he “knows” he is only believing in God because he is a man, not because God exists.
