    I read Tim Keller’s “The Reason for God” in May and enjoyed the emphasis on critical thinking as an evangelistic tool. On the other hand he is really boneheaded when discussing origins, but along with what you are saying, I’m constantly asking myself what are the strongest arguments on the other side. It’s important to keep challenging the ideas we agree with and wrestling with the strongest arguments of our opponents in order to clarify what we believe and what the Scripture actually teaches.

    What is the difference between doubt and unbelief? Is there a difference?

    @ George – I concur. Keller’s conclusion on the doubt paragraph is that Christianity is the answer to any doubts.

    @ PJ – Because the post is based on Keller’s book (not Bible) – I will do a lexical study to investigate the possible difference between doubt and unbelief. Great idea and comment – I’ll do it for my 3rd blog post.

    From the context of what Keller is saying – he is saying that doubt is any questions you might have as to the validity of Christianity whether or not you claim to be a Christian (but the quote specifically relates to professing Christians).

    Doubts – When you are not sure something is true.
    Unbelief – When you are sure something is not true.

    “Am I relying on past spiritual experiences instead of present day spiritual vitality?”

    Should Christians think this way at all? It sounds like relying on present experience rather than past experience in order to erase doubt. I think both are equally dangerous and will lead to doubt. Doubts come from flaws or inconsistencies in ones epistemology. If a person bases their knowledge of truth on experience, doubt will inevitably result.
