Everyone has some kind of faith.
Atheists have faith – faith that there is no God, no place of everlasting punishment in the hereafter.
Animals possess faith. They display the utmost faith in their masters, as do children in their parents.
Sick people also display tremendous faith. They go to a doctor who took courses in school with names they may not even be able to pronounce correctly much less understand. He gives them a prescription they can not read. They take the prescription to a pharmacist they may not have even seen before. He gives them some medicine they do not understand and that cost and arm and a leg. All this is done in trusting, sincere faith.
But faith by itself does not save anyone. It is the object of our faith that saves us. That’s why the object of saving faith must be Jesus Christ.
