Getting to Know God (2 of 4)
Getting to Know the Nature of God
Dr. Stan Coffey
We started this series of lessons "Getting to Know God" by talking about the existence of God. We began discussing the three arguments for the existence of God, concluding that the only way to know God is by faith. Hearing comes by faith and faith comes by the Word of God. So faith comes by hearing and hearing comes by the Word of God. So if you want more faith, study the Word of God and that is where you get faith by studying the Word of God.
