These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.  

Bible Study Guide:

Believe and Not Doubt

By Scarlett Stough


To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, He Who Doubts.

1. James 1:5-7; Genesis 3:1-6. Do you think James meant we should never ask for proof or evidence? Why do you think asking for wisdom from God is tied to belief without doubt?

2. Matthew 21:18-22; Mark 11:20-24. Where should our faith be placed? What is it we should not doubt?

3. Hebrews 10:23. What is the hope we profess which will give us stability in our faith?

4. 1 John 2:15-17. What worldly characteristics cause us to waver in our faith? (Compare to Genesis 3:6.)

5. Romans 4:20; Hebrews 11:8-12, 17-19. What kept Abraham believing God would keep his promises to him?

6. Hebrews 11:1, 6. Describe faith. How can this kind of faith keep us from hesitating?
