Doubting Thomas gets a bum rap, I think. We listen to his story once a year, and draw from it the idea that doubt trumps faith. That's just not so. Thomas was being told a tale by the other Disciples which demanded proof. Their friend, who was killed in a very public way raised from the grave? Of course he was sceptical. I would be, too. Exceptional claims require exceptional proof.
But what if I told you that Thomas' problem wasn't doubt but faithlessness? Would that change how you feel about the story? Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Ky. for this week's sermon, Three Little Words by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for text.
