His doubts about Jesus:
So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.” – – NIV John 20:25
Jesus wasn’t hard on Thomas for his doubts. Despite his scepticism, Thomas was still loyal to the believers and to Jesus himself. Some people need to doubt before they believe. If doubt leads to questions, questions lead to answers, and the answers are accepted, then doubt has done good work. It is when doubt becomes stubbornness and stubbornness becomes a life-style that doubts harms faith. When you doubt, don’t stop there. Let your doubt deepen your faith as you continue to search for the answer.
