* 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

* In the ''{{Scrubs}}'' episode "My Own Personal Jesus", Turk loses his faith in a just God after a hopeless Christmas Eve in the emergency room, but regains it after he finds a missing pregnant woman by intuition and helps her give birth. (Interestingly, Turk is the only character in the episode who professes strong religious beliefs in the first place, and the other major characters seem to look down on him for this.)

** Another episode has all the Catholics in South Park (which is [[ChristianityIsCatholic pretty much everybody]]) declare themselves {{Hollywood Atheist}}s due to the {{Pedophile Priest}} controversy. They wind up reverting back after Priest Maxi makes a televised speech to the church hierarchy about not letting unnecessary bureaucracy and corrupt rules get in the way of religion's core message.

** Inquisition also reveals that Leliana, if in love with a Warden who died killing the Archdemon, has been dealing with a crisis of faith since the end of 'Origins'.
-->'''Leliana''': I was with the Hero of Ferelden when he killed the Archdemon. The Maker brought us together, and then... I watched him die. In that instant, I felt the Maker's presence grow cold. One moment, a cherished child. The next... abandoned.
