Hi reader,

So I was just in the middle of my prayers, and a very worrying, uncomfortable thought of doubting the existence of God occurred in my mind. I've noticed these thoughts pop up quite frequently here and there, but 90% of time it doesn't. I would say I do believe in God, but I sometimes, very occasionally think for like 2 seconds, then quickly ask for forgiveness, that 'am I actually praying to something'? I am very uncomfortable even writing and thinking about it now, as I feel like I'm being apostolic which I hate to even imagine being.

Can someone tell me if these doubts will be forgiven by God?

The Almighty is closer to you than your jugular vein. He watches over you with loving mercy. His kindness and compassion are beyond our ability to understand.

Doubting the existence of something you've had absolutely no tangible encounter with whatsoever is natural.

The more pertinent question would be why you would believe in a God that would punish you for something so petty.

If you're going to believe in God, do so in one that would be kind and compassionate. Otherwise, you're just creating necessary worry in your life.

You wouldn't be human if you never had even a second of doubt in your mind, I'm sure even the most devout believers have had doubts before, and that is the way God created us. The fact you repent and keep on going is the real illustration of your faith and character

Its pretty sad that as soon as you have a free thought you are imediately scared into thinking it was wrong.

so you're a weak believer since you have doubt
that's like saying i'll trust in you but for this specific thing i can't trust you with then you decide that you can trust this person, not exactly a great connection is it?

Zeus is probably furious, expect thunderbolts and lightning. Very very frightening.

Surely you mean apostate? Apostolic is something a bit different haha.
It seems as if you have a weak faith; if you met the living Christ you would be certain God exists and that He loves you. Remember if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins but first you must be born again of the spirit of God as Jesus said in the New Testament

Whilst one cannot definitively give you an answer because you haven't specified a religion/denomination, I don't personally see why fleeting doubts would be a problem for your god :nah: In my belief system at least (Roman Catholicism), it's less about the content of fleeting thoughts than how you act upon or react to them :yes:

You might want to entertain those doubts, especially since you seem to believe in a god that will treat it as thoughtcrime regardless of whether you quickly suppressed them or not. You're done for anyway, so you might as well think. :dontknow:
