I’m not sure why everyone who reads or heard me speak on this misunderstands me. I thought I was clear. Let me be clearer :
John didn’t doubt. It is theologically and exegetically indefensible. I do not see this as an arguable point. To say John doubted is to destroy the entire decalogue. If you don’t believe that John was sending his disciples to Jesus so that they would believe, read the Early church and choose an interpretation that suits you. There are several. But “doubting John” is not an option.
To summarize:
John not doubt.
Don’t say he did in a sermon.
That is all.
