Doubt Busters

Doubt Busters - doubts about faith, Christian faith, doubts
Do you sometimes have doubts about God?

Many Christians have doubts, so we shouldn’t be ashamed or disillusioned by them.  They are not the same as unbelief.

When we doubt, we are usually dealing with difficult or troubling circumstances or we are tempted by ungodly influences. 

Unbelief is totally different from doubt. It's unrepentant, repetitious rebellion against God and His principles.* 

When we doubt, we don't want to. We want to believe. 

We can overcome doubt by:
  1. Regularly reading God’s Word (Romans 10:17)
  2. Replacing doubts with thoughts of God's faithfulness (2 Corinthians 10:5
  3. Avoiding influences that cause temptation (2 Timothy 2:22)
Having doubts? Read, replace, and avoid. 

*For example:Abraham doubted in Genesis 17:15-17, but a whole generation of Israelites lost the Promised Land because of their unbelief (Hebrews 3:12-18).

  6. "When we doubt, we don't want to. We want to believe."

    To keep in mind when faced with the question of doubt in others.
