“Doubting” Thomas wasn’t so bad. Here is the reference to his time of questioning:
John 20:24-29 Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 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.”
A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Did Jesus chastise Thomas for doubting? No. And remember that Jesus was not shy about rebuking the Disciples when they got things wrong. Thomas asked for evidence and he got it.
Doubts are OK, provided you don’t use them as an excuse not to believe. Use them to keep honestly searching for the truth and Jesus promised you will find it.
Now Jesus will probably not appear to you directly, but He didn’t expect you to believe just because someone said to. There is plenty of evidence for the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and for the accuracy and integrity of the Bible. All of the examples of sharing the Gospel in the Bible involve using fact, reason and evidence. So let’s give Thomas a break.
