Quote – Doubt is not the opposite of faith.

“The opposite of faith is not doubt, but fear.” – Philip Yancey

Philip Yancey has been quite an influence on me. Think about the importance of this thought:

“The opposite of faith is not doubt, but fear.”


It’s easy to think, while feeling doubt, that my faith is weak. Not necessarily so. It just means I’m having doubts. Doubt is a normal part of a life of faith.  If you haven’t started reading Yancey, you should.  Try The Jesus I Never Knew, Where is God When it Hurtsor What’s so Amazing About Grace?. All are great.
