Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen hebrews 11

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11

  • God is the uncaused Creator and designer of space, time, and matter. His character is known through an authentic written record called the Bible in which he reveals his desire to have fellowship with us, why we find ourselves in a dilemma called sin, and how he has overcome this barrier. A long historical record of countless people having this experience precedes us.
