"If faith does not continually expose itself to the possibility of unfaith, it is not faith but a convenience.  It becomes an agreement with oneself to adhere to a doctrine as something that has been handed down.  This is neither having faith nor questioning, but indifference" - Martin Heidegger

I posted this in faith issues, because well it's a faith issue...however I think this is an interesting quote. I have exposed alot of my faith to doubt, and while it does make it stronger, sometimes I feel it is despondent sometimes.

Why must we struggle to reconcile doubt with faith but also carrying our crosses for an even heavier burden? Is our faith not convient because "for in fire gold is tested"? Will God at the last day tell me why my faith in Him was so little?
