Doubt in Worship

Here is an interesting piece by Trevin Wax on Christian artists casting doubt on their faith. It is well worth the read and I think he has a point: we should respond appropriately and recognize that there is healthy doubt when it comes to faith. 

I think our faith is big enough for doubt, so long as the doubt doesn’t get in the way of our worship. What I mean is it is okay to ask questions, just to do so healthily. And doubt doesn’t mean we can’t still worship our Lord. 

Matthew 28.16-20:

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[b] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
