Do we need Faith or Certainty in God’s existence?

Faith, Doubt and Certainty

Faith that doesn’t doubt is a dead faith (Miguel de Unamuno)

Doubt isn’t the opposite of Faith, but it is an element of Faith (Paul Tillich)

The opposite of Faith is not doubt, but certainty (Anne Lamott)

I will formulate three questions and my response to them,

  1. Do I have my doubts about Gods existence (Yes)
  2. Do I have faith that God exists (Definitely Yes)

If you are certain about God’s existence, do you need to have faith?
