Doubts and Questions

“The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.”  -Henry Ward Beecher

Right now I’m in graduate school studying towards a master’s degree, and some of my professors have explained that even though they have reached the pinnacle of their academic careers, a PhD, their education actually never ceases.  They learn new things every day because that is what researchers do: they ask questions.  Just so that you know, when I became a Christian, my doubts about Christ did not go away.  On the contrary, I have moments in which my doubts are even more prevalent than ever.  As the saying goes, the more you learn the less you know.  If you have doubts today, understand that this is completely normal.  Whether you are a rookie Christian, a veteran Christian, or an unbelieving skeptic—it’s entirely OK to ask questions.  Your mind isn’t truly alive if you aren’t coming up with new questions!  If you don’t know, pray about it and find someone who does.  Always remember that you don’t have to have all the answers, you just need to know the One who does. 

Accordingly God also, in His desire to show more convincingly and beyond doubt to those who were to inherit the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose and plan, intervened (mediated) with an oath  (Hebrews 6:17, AMP).
