THIS WAS KIND OF A QUOTE FROM ANOTHER POST BUT THE QUESTION WAS MORE TOWARDS CHRISTIANS:
I know Christians are asked this question but I wonder if this is something witches should question or if muslims should question the validity of muhammad or if the Jewish faith should question their ideas.
Should a witch question a spell works or if it was just coincidence?

I do not doubt my God and Goddess but I also do not grovel at their feet. I feel they want us to be in more control and in tune with ourselves and our surroundings. If a practitioner doubts the spell works then more than likely it will not work. Part of what we do is knowing in what area to focus our energy to get the results needed. In other words we have enough self confidence in ourselves and our environment to know our spells can and do work. And if they do not come forth immediately we know that some work takes time to come into fruition. All in all we walk with our Deities but they WANT us to be self empowered.

Absolutely! I have no problems with doubt. If anything it sharpens my reasoning abilities. I know the Gods exist. I know this by faith. But to say the Gods exist like I exist, I have my doubts but it's not impossible to me. To me it's not different than doubting that Nebraska exists. I've never been there, never seen it, can't think of a single person I know IRL who's been there or is from there. But that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I take it on reasoned faith that it does.
But as for magic, I have to question the results. Part of my magical training included distinguishing from conjecture, absolute coincidences, and wishful thinking. Wishful thinking is the hardest one to deal with because we too often only see what we want to see, even if it means changing the facts around to suit ourselves.
So yeah, doubt and questioning is cornerstone to my faith. :) I am encouraged to seek and find.
