Credo #38.3: Doubt is not humility

Posted: November 23, 2010 in Credo, For brothers, Other people's writing

Super great post from Ransomed Heart ministries. This is one of my pet peeves; it does great damage to the integrity of a man’s heart to stray like this. …..Perhaps I feel so strongly about it because I was taught this kind of Christian culture and had to be delivered from it. I think of this sort of thing as a “stealth” failure — it steals in stealthily and then will steal from you. Read it several times – don’t assume you know what the essay is about because you’ve read the title. So important, that I’ve elevated this idea to a Credo.

5/2011 Edit: John Immel has expressed here some of what I am getting at with this, and much better.

4/2012 Edit: One again John Immel does my work for me, expressing my idea in much better fashion. Take the time to slow through this and chew on it. It’s that good, and it’s that important to your freedom.

 

6/13 Edit:  Pastor Hollenbach helps us to understand this matter.

    I think the big problem is not the expression of doubt but how a person responds to it(and namely, how communities respond to it).
