Ice Breaker: What did you believe about God as you were growing up?
Is doubt ever discussed in your church/small group/friendship group?
Have you had any friends walk away from their faith? Why do you think they did? How did it make you feel about your own faith?
‘Doubt is not the opposite of faith but often a sign of it. Doubt can reveal that you want to know the truth and are not running from it.’ Do you agree? Is there a difference between doubt and cynicism?
When do you doubt God’s existence? Do you live like God is real? Read John 6:66. Have you ever had a moment where you’ve found yourself saying ‘A big part of me wants to walk away but how can I? I know you’re God and the only way to heaven.’
What are you doing to build a strong, flexible faith?
Creative Moment: Get some paper or a journal and brainstorm the words ‘faith’ and ‘doubt’.
Next Step: What are some practical steps you can take to build a strong flexible faith? How can you start implementing them this week?
