How much do you doubt? How much is too much? How much is too little?
This week's reading from John 20:19-31 is about Thomas (you know, "Doubting Thomas!") and Jesus. I have a few short thoughts about doubt and I'd live to hear what you think:
Here are four statements about doubt. Think about whether you agree or disagree with them:
- Doubt is uncertainty or skepticism
- Doubt is the absence of faith
- Faith cannot exist with doubt
- Doubt and faith exist together
The second one is the one that I was taught by a few teachers when I was growing up.
The third one was what the second one led to in my mind as I grew.
The fourth one is what I believe.
What do you doubt? What do you believe?
