Even the apostles had doubts, not just Thomas, but the Lord was understanding of that. It is a mistake to assume that people of ancient times were more open to believing in Christ. They faced many obstacles to faith that are not so different than what many people struggle with today. As we continue our discussion on faith and doubt, what are some of the primary obstacles to faith today? And why does God ask for faith at all? Why doesn’t he just reveal himself to everyone?

If faith is a “gift” then do we have any responsibility for our doubts? The apostles were giants of the Church, but were they always giants of faith? Did other apostles have doubts besides Thomas, and if so, how did the Lord react to that? Were people more trusting, more open to believing in Christ in ancient times or did they also face obstacles to faith?
