I have never regarded "skepticism" as the necessary enemy of "faith".
Instead, I see the two as potential friends, for without skepticism how will the person of faith ever know the true extent of their faith?
Indeed, someone with genuine faith should value skepticism and be deeply concerned as to what can be established without resorting to faith.
For me, there are three relevant propositions here:
1. There are beliefs which do not require faith
These are the beliefs of the genuine skeptic and secularist, using critical reasoning and an evidence-base approach.
For example, there is a book called the Bible and it contains accounts of a person called Jesus.
2. There are beliefs which require faith to take you further than what can actually be established - to fill the gap
These are the commonest beliefs of many with faith, a sort of complementary faith. A critical and evidence-based approach will only take a believer so far, so faith is required to take them to their actual beliefs.
For example, the accounts of Jesus refer to the actual Son of God; or there "must be something there".
3. There are beliefs which contradict what can otherwise be established
These are the beliefs of those who will believe things to be true despite - and in the face of - any evidence or critical thinking. This is a sort of contrarian faith.
This is the most impressive form of faith and is rather beyond my own comprehension.
For example, the miracles described in the Bible and Saints' Lives are literally true, or there was indeed a decree that all the world be taxed, or Earth is only 6000 years old, or water retains a memory, and so on.
Curiously, such contrarian believers tend not to cherish skepticism as the means by which they can understand and measure that incredible leap they require their faith to undertake.
I would have thought, perhaps naively, that any person of faith would be keen and enthused to know what does not require faith; a few do, but most do not. And very few contrarian believers will engage with a skeptic.
Perhaps they do not take their faith that seriously?
