"Translation is interpretation," said Kenneth Bailey.1 It is often the case a word from one language does not have an exact corresponding word in another language. Additionally, the word it is translated to may be further distorted by our culture, or our own personal experience. Such is the case with the word 'doubt'.

In our series on the enemies of our faith, this month we look at doubt. In He Who Doubts, Scarlett examines the meaning of the word doubt and how doubt is our enemy.

In our Bible Study Guide this month we examine the ways we can Believe and Not Doubt.

As we go into this new year, may we stand strong to fight the enemies of our faith.
