I would say that it is not good to have faith in something that you cannot prove. Faith is defined as believing in something without having evidence to support it. Not having a grounds for which to believe something does not benefit any knowledge toward us. We should always question our faith. Questioning our faith can only benefit ourselves. We can find truths that alert us that our faith is misleading. We can also find truths that strengthen our faith.

Ultimately, it’s truths that we need to be searching for. Faith can benefit us in times of need, but we should understand that questioning these faiths benefits our knowledge of the truths of the world. Faith will play a role in all our lives whether with God, others, ourselves…but we must use these faiths as challenges to help us discover the truth. Don’t be afraid of what you’ll find. This is what makes life exciting.
