I want to speak today, friends, on "My Faith." The reason I am bringing this is that today many people's faith is being shaken by people who have no faith!
Just the other day I heard a man on a national television program. He had written a book in which he gave forth his un-faith his un-belief. He said, "There is no proof that there is a God. You cannot prove that there is a God."
