When Faith Is Tested

Faith crises are very real and very difficult. Our environment might discourage honest discussion and so the person with doubts cannot express them and work them through.

God can cope with being questioned. Find people with whom you can be honest but who also want to help you rebuild your faith, not abandon it.

The article by Mike Leake, below, suggests that we have pictures of God that are not the real God. We need to be able to give those up but the crucial thing is that we pursue God as He actually is. Many people with doubts give up on God when what they should do is give up on the god they have assumed and discover more of God.
