The Risen King and the Doubter

Is there a difference between doubt and unbelief?

The answer to this question can be pretty complex. Let me give you a couple of thoughts that I have:

1- Belief (faith) is required of us

2- Belief (faith) is commanded by Christ

3- Belief (faith) comes to us by hearing the Word of Christ

4- Belief (faith) is a gracious gift of God to us

Regarding doubt and unbelief:

1- Doubt does not necessarily disqualify someone regarding faith

2- Doubt may contribute to someone’s unbelief

3- Unbelief may contribute to someone’s doubt
