Hi JS Park! I have a question for you.
I came across this blog searching for people who used to be atheists, but are now Christians.
I’m in a bit of a blunder. Every time I feel like I’m firm in my beliefs and my faith, some atheist comes along and completely shreds me to pieces (spiritually, of course). I don’t try to debate them, but just simply hearing one say “Gods not real. Prove He is real,” makes me start to doubt like crazy. I hate this. I can’t stand knowing I’m so weak in my faith. Any advice? Thanks!
Can I let you in on a little secret? Pretend I’m now speaking in the voice of Dr. House.
Every Christian doubts.
While I won’t comprehensively dismantle doubts or atheism, let’s declare three truths right out in the open.
1) Doubt is not the same as unbelief. Unbelief is characterized by acting as if there is no God. Doubts are sincere questions seeking truth.
2) The inability to “prove God” doesn’t do anything to God. Disproving a faulty version of god isn’t even talking about God.
3) Doubts can either push us toward more doubts or a deeper faith. Those are your two options.
