Justin Welby’s doubts
The Archbishop of Canterbury was interviewed while on a visit to Bristol, when he expressed his problem with doubt. The Telegraph reports,
Britain’s most senior churchman, who is effectively the leader of almost 80 million Anglicans worldwide, admitted that there are moments when he asks himself “Is there a God?” and “Where is God?
He also said that Christians cannot explain why suffering exists in the world but that the answer was faith.
Apparently the archbishop relies on faith when dealing with these doubts.
It is not about feelings, it is about the fact that God is faithful and the extraordinary thing about being a Christian is that God is faithful when we are not.
If anyone can explain how God can be faithful, please tell us.
