Description

A better understanding of the nature of doubt is now important more than ever before, where two-thirds of Christians admit to having had doubts in their faith. This paper suggests that doubt is not necessarily a dangerous step towards leaving the faith, but that there is room for doubt in faith, which could actually strengthen one’s faith if understood correctly. Key texts, specific words and stories from the Bible that point out the topic of doubts in the context of faith are surveyed to provide a better picture of doubt according to the Bible. Then, the question of what to do about doubt is discussed based on the Bible and other Christian thinkers who have wrestled with doubts in their faith.
