In reply to faith and doubt, posted by runner01girl on July 1, 2006, at 16:30:01

Runnergirl, many of the greatest Saints and Holy people of the Christian faith went through periods of doubt and even straying away from God.

St. Augustine and St. Theresa are two who come to mind.

The struggle with doubt and the attempt to answer questions of how to understand and justify faith inspired many great theological writings. These were not only abstract questions, but were written because of doubts that all believers face.

Don't condemn yourself, but rather know that you're trying to answer the questions. Many have had doubts, and times when loss of faith disturbs them.

Accept that answers may not come right away. Maybe you can find inner peace by accepting struggle, which may bring you to a deeper belief.
