In defence of Doubt

One Christian writer, in kind of a defence of doubt, had this to say:

QUOTE Sometimes a person is tempted to think, I can’t become a Christian because I still have doubts. I’m still not sure. But as long as doubts exist, as long as the person is still uncertain, that is the only time faith is needed. When doubts are gone, the person doesn’t need faith anymore.

John Ortberg, Faith and Doubt (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2008), p. 139
