Have You Ever Questioned Your Own Faith?


As an atheist I question everything, all the time, every second. Especially my own beliefs. However when I ask Christians in my area about that they vehemently deny it and claim that questioning their faith is an act against god! Well something to that effect. Do you question your faith and why would it be wrong to question? If god meant for you to know and not question wouldn't he have been a little more obvious about his existence?

    Dan: There are 3 main components that make up one's belief system: Genuine Authority, Sound Reason/Logic and Faith. If faith is not accompanied by either Sound Reason or Genuine Authority it is on its own and thus is considered to be a blind faith.

    Some beautiful distinctions made there, CJ. Just as scientists should not doubt the ability to find answers, they should also question their current "laws" (knowledge base). Newton's "laws" fell to Einstein's Relativity. But there's more.
