@spookypastor & doubt

I read a great article from @spookypastor–a Huffington Post Religion contributor–on faith and doubt.

I have always thought doubt was a welcome companion to faith. Rev. Jonathan Weyer ends his argument with this:

As I read through the biblical discussion of doubt, I realized how much the Bible really does describe reality, especially the reality of the human condition. It calls us to question and to doubt. The relief I felt can barely be described. I felt liberated. I could openly bring out my doubts and not get struck by lightning.

My faith had been restored through doubt.

If your faith is not built like a house of cards, doubt is a way to strengthen it even more. For in the answers we seek, we find assurance.

Good stuff, my friend.
