HOW TO WALK WITH THE LORD BY FAITH
DR. NELSON PRICE
HEBREWS 11: 5, 6
JESUS CHRIST has appealed to each of us to take up our cross

simply true because history can't be rerun.
Likewise, it should be kept in mind that one of the laws of logic is
that you can't prove a negative. To prove a negative you have to
know everything and be greater than the negative asserted. Thus,
to prove there is no God, you would have to be greater than and
know more than God. Then you would be God; and therefore, there
would be a god = you.
Though we can't prove God by the scientific method there are
