O Me of Little Faith


I Doubt It

posted by Jason Boyett

Crazy day today, for various health- and work-related reasons. So no real and/or official and/or super creative post or anything. My apologies.

Instead, I’ll direct you to my latest piece for TrueU.org. It’s called “I Doubt It: How to Deal with Uncertainty.” It is (hopefully) an honest look at some faith issues I continue to struggle with, and how I’m learning to handle it. It’s also a topic that I’ll be turning into a book later this year for Zondervan, once all the Pocket Guides are finished. Publication in late 2009.

So…there you go.

Have you commented on the “Who Are You?” post yet? If not, now’s the time.

That piece is probably my favorite among those that you’ve written.

Jason,You nailed it! I would say every Christian should spend some serious time working through their belief system and challenge every aspect of their faith.Quite frankly, if we don’t wrestle with it – if we haven’t gone through the tough questions, then the faith really isn’t worth a whole lot, is it?After 10 years of consistent doubts, when I claimed my faith, I decided that I would never settle for having to make excuses for that faith or try to protect it from attack – and so far God has shown me that He can handle the tough questions just fine.Like you, I still question, still struggle – but I’ve found every battle worthwhile.Keep doubting – just keep struggling right along with it!

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
