Having Doubts About the
Christian Faith? Then Here Are Some Words of Comfort for
Since I like to write apologetics articles, one of my
hobbies is to investigate alleged "errors' in the Bible.
Although the answer to a few questions remains unknown to
me, that no longer troubles me like it would have when I was
Because when I have gone to the Lord with questions about
these alleged errors, He has graciously provided answers to
so many of them that an unwavering and very obvious pattern
has emerged. That pattern is that our Lord is always
faithful and true! Over the years, I have come to believe
and anticipate that every challenge to our faith will
eventually be found to be based on at least one human error.
Historically, this has certainly proven true. We could
probably fill a library with the criticisms directed at our
faith that have eventually been disproved or answered. So
why should we get bent out of shape over "newly" alleged
errors? (Especially when they are so often just the old ones
We don't have to know the answer to every question or every
mystery. Once we get to know Him, and that He is always
faithful, loving and truthful, that alone is sufficient to
resolve any doubts!
Why insist on having all of your questions and doubts
answered before seeking or trusting God? Haven't you really
seen enough evidence, and received enough answers already,
to know that He is real, and that you can trust Him?
Take the time to get to know God without having all of your
questions answered. God may answer many, if not most of your
questions eventually. But some of the answers may remain a
mystery. That will not matter, though, If you truly get to
know Him and His character, because that alone will be a
good enough answer!
