Christmas Doubters

December 10, 2012

There were some famous doubters in the Bible.  When Abraham heard God was going to bless his ninety-year-old wife Sarah with a son, he fell on his face and had a belly laugh.  God gave him a son anyway.  When twelve spies went into the Promised Land to get a report, ten of the spies doubted they could drive out the Canaanites.  Only Joshua and Caleb entered the land.  Luke tells us of a priest named Zechariah who was told by an angel God was going to bless his aged wife with a son.  Zechariah doubted and God rendered him unable to speak until John the Baptist was born.  I guess by the time He got to the New Testament, God figured if you can’t stop people from doubting, you can at least keep them quiet.
