The ResetButton will often be in full effect - after all, in mainstream American media (where this trope is most common) [[StatusQuoIsGod God Is the Status Quo]] and the MoralGuardians might kick up a fuss if the option of losing ones faith ''for good'' were presented as a valid decision. Naturally, ValuesDissonance abounds for viewers who consider atheism a valid outlook to live by.

* Brutaka from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' performed a brief but notable FaceHeelTurn when he lost his faith in the Great Spirit Mata Nui. Little did he know that Mata Nui's actually a very PhysicalGod, who hasn't shown any sign of himself due to being in a coma. He later realizes that being a villain stands against all the other things he believed in, and the rest of the story portrays him as a mostly positive character.

* In ''Literature/{{Ardath}}'' by Marie Corelli, Theos Alwyn starts out with one. His quest leads him to experience two extremely vivid dream-visions, confirmed as definitely not AllJustADream, which convince him in the reality of God and, later, Jesus (although not mainstream church Christianity).
* HPLovecraft has his hero Randolph Carter go through this in ''The Silver Key''. Randolph has lost the ability to go to the Dreamlands, and without that experience, life isn't worth living. Fortunately he finds a way, by starting his life over from childhood.

* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Earl confesses to a happy nun that used to be his cranky landlady that the "voice of God" she was hearing was actually him fooling around with a walkie-talkie and her hearing aid. The nun loses her faith in God, leaves the convent, and returns to Pimmit Hills Trailer Park, grouchier and meaner than ever. Earl and his friends then try to help her get her faith back.
** In another episode, Earl himself has a CrisisOfFaith in Karma. He gets out of {{Prison}} for doing something ''bad'', had spent all his lotto money on [[ItMakesSenseInContext a prom for the prison]] and then can't get back on his feet because no one wants to hire an ex-con. Meanwhile, his friend Ralph has been living it up, [[DeadPersonImpersonation posing as a senile old woman's dead]] [[FridgeHorror husband]]. Earl becomes frustrated because he was expecting to be rewarded for good behavior (which is why he embraced (TheThemeParkVersion) of Karma in the first place), but [[DudeWheresMyRespect hasn't experienced any rewards]].

* Music/DanielAmos's lyrics show an interesting transition in frontman Terry Scott Taylor's attitude over the years. In "Skeptics' Song" (from the 1976 debut album), he simply mocks anyone who disbelieves the Bible. (Reportedly, [[OldShame Taylor is deeply embarrassed over that song, now.]]) Then in "Walls of Doubt" (from 1981's ''Music/{{Alarma}}''), Taylor reassures listeners that having doubts isn't the end of the world, but that God will help them through their crisis:
-->It's alright\\
You can let go now\\
Love is the master's plow\\
Crash down the walls of doubt
::And then in "The Uses of Adversity" (from 2013's ''Dig Here Said the Angel''), he takes the position that these crises may be necessary.
-->No donít send me certainty \\
If somehow itís best for me to doubt
