I've been looking at a blog on Credo house about 8 diagnostic questions.
Doubt is discribedas dealing with their salvation, God's love for them or other issues.
What I found interesting where the questions which were about the person rather than their doubt.
I haven't worked out how to cut and paste on this so can't copy the link, I found it through apologetics315 blog links, have a look and say what you think.

Doubt I think, is one of the easiest seeds to worm into peoples lives, but like vine can soon tangle people up leading them into confusion. 

What are the causes of doubt? many, many things are, from how you was raised, lack of trust, lack of conviction, abuse, list goes on and on...

How do you deal with doubt? good question.

Thanks for posting this topic John, its a very fundamental important one.

Is doubt the same as questioning ?

If I'm not sure about someone I will question what they say

Is',t doubt a part of growing ?

I don't think doubt is the same as questioning, but questions are asked when doubting.
I think doubts are often due to not understanding theology, reacting emotionally to the doctrine of hell etc or because our thought patterns are disturbed by medication, or because we've read a book that is above our ability to handle the arguements in it.

I believe that all Christians experience doubts, but that this does not invalidate their faith, but drives them closer to the object of their faith.

have a look t the blog " :-

I think all believers will doubt at times but even in our doubt He remains our Lord.

Yes we all question our faith, why we believe, what we believe, and even who we believe. That is healthy, but it is when we allow something other than a question to challenge our belief.
eg. Someone with a poor understanding of God, is challenged over hell, they think it is unjust and rather than examine their beliefs and the bible they doubt the existence of hell and the justice of God. Starting a slide of disbelief in God based on a misunderstanding of who god is.

Our doubts should lead us back to God, not away from him, if that is happening then our reasoning is faulty.
It is exactly the same with science, if the reasoning in science is correct it will lead us to God, not away.
