The Struggle With Doubt in the Christian Faith

Listen to podcast audio:

John Calvin wrote, “A perfect faith is nowhere to be found, so it follows that all of us are partly unbelievers.” Many of us wrestle with doubt or uncertainty in our walk with God. Doubt can take many different forms in our lives. No matter what shape our doubt takes, we are not alone in our struggle. God knows what doubts haunt us. He isn’t shocked or surprised. Instead, he invites us to trust his goodness and direction in our lives.
