Do You Believe?
In this episode, Bill Marianes asks the questions, “Do you believe? Do you have faith? Do you have confidence in the story of Christ’s resurrection and life after death?” We explore in this podcast how we can believe in something without seeing it. We will also discuss how our disbelief is not unique to us. And we see through Holy Scripture, and the critical first-person accounts from the Apostles, how we can have faith in eternal life and a resurrected Lord. The Apostles are the best case study for us to draw upon for guidance in how to embrace faith–and deal with doubt. They had seen Our Lord raise Lazarus, and yet, just days later, they doubted whether our Lord could be raised from the dead. Thomas became the paragon of the “doubter,” and Jesus blesses us with the promise that “blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”
