    I have questioned my faith in man and in myself. Though I have never questioned my faith in the universe. I don't always like the way things go and don't always understand the intricate workings of the universe, but I believe nature is perfect in design.

    I have a dual answer to that one.
    I have always followed my faith, never faltering in what I believe, however, the events and situations that occur, that come from what I believe, I do question.
    I do not question them because I have any doubts, but I question what I encounter to bring better understanding of my faith.

    yeah i have questioned my faith.. weither God even exists.... but when you get to that point.. thats just the devil trying to snatch you out of the hand of God..... there are so many unanswered questions.. but.. youll be alright.. you have the power over the devil.. dont let him intimidate you.. questioning is normal..... turn to the bible when you have questions.. or talk to someone of faith.. fellowship with people that shae your beleifs.. and as always.. know the word, its important.. because the devil will twist it in anyway..

    If you've ever thought about your faith at all, then you probably have questioned it.  There will be times when things don't go the way we think they should and those are the best opportunities for questions to arise.  It is those times when we need to decide what we believe.  Decide what you believe and have clear reasons why.  Take your questions to God and then listen quietly for an answer.  He will respond if you are truly looking for Him.

    I have had different faiths and have questioned them all.I have found it impossible for me to believe in any organized religion anymore. They all have points and they all miss many. I am not an atheist. I believe in a higher power and can not tell you what or who it is really. Sure I could come up with many ideas about it but they seem like relative security blanket. I believe in me and something beyond me is present. I am pretty much an eclectic spiritual person now. A faith unchallenged is not a real faith.

    If our ultimate responsibility is to search for truth then we have a responsibility to question everything including our faith. Our faith has nothing to loose in the face of questions unless it fails the question. I have questioned mine repeatedly; it has always survived my imposition. Everytime it does, we become closer than before.

    I question my faith all the time; it's difficult not to when such awful things happen in the world and there are so many evil people out there.
    Perhaps the fact that I have faith, is the very reason that I try every day to be part of the good things, and the good that people do in life.
    If the worst thing I do is question my faith; I reckon I'll do o.k.

    As a former youth director for 2 congregations, yes, I do believe it is good to question our faith.  It  make us dig deeper into our personal self.  Asking questions is good! To evaluate, compare and contrast and then making decisions for ourselves is a form of growth.  Following is good, but leading with confidence is even better.
