John the Baptist doubted Jesus the Christ. Jesus seems to expect the doubt, even arrange for the doubt. He showers Grace on the undeserving, while John the Baptist, greatest of “those born of women,” remains in prison. “Blessed is he who is not offended by me,” says Jesus. The man “born of women” is terribly offended by Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The man “born of the Spirit” has faith by Grace, which is Jesus. When we doubt God, we doubt ourselves. Doubting the old man makes room for the new man. If there were no room for doubt, there would be no room for faith and no room for me–the true and eternal me, Christ in me.
