Guests: Ben Young

"Doubt is like porn," says pastor Ben Young. "Lots of people struggle with it, but no one wants to talk about it." Ben, who calls himself a recovering "doubt-aholic," tells his story of experiencing intense doubt about God. He argues that doubt isn't the opposite of faith, but instead is like ice: It can slide you closer to or further away from God. We ask Ben what determines which way Christians slide as we talk about his book "Room for Doubt."
