Having Doubts About the Christian Faith? Then Here Are Some Words of Comfort for You...
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 younger. Why?
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 rehashed?)
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!
