Things We Shouldn't Discuss

Never Fear Doubt

Looking over my blog entries for 2010, I realized that I am pretty terrible blogger. I rarely stay on one topic for very long and I am all over the map in terms of style and tone. I guess that means no publisher will ever read my blog and then offer me a small fortune to turn my blog into a book.

That’s ok with me because I wouldn’t want to read a book made up of my ramblings anyway (although I wouldn’t mind the small fortune).

This morning, I threw something pithy on my Twitter account today and then after I posted it, I read this line: to fear doubt is to never know faith. Really, it was just off the top of my head, but when it comes down to it, I think that might be my life’s creed.

Many Christians spend their lives worrying about their doubts; and worry is just fear of the future. It is the fear of the consequences of a decision.

How can we live in fear and worry? How can we be afraid of doubts when it is doubt that distinguishes faith from blind acceptance?

Friends, never fear doubt. Embrace it. Speak your doubts and question your convictions. Dare to dream and create. If God cannot take your doubts and make them something good and beautiful, then he is too small to be the one true God.
