Scripture Reading: Hebrews 11:4
A. Biblical faith is not “belief without proof” as some might think.
B. Faith is proof in itself of that which we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1).
C. Everyone has faith in something, but all faiths are not equal.
I. The world puts faith in the wrong things.
A. Israel put their faith in men (Isaiah 30:1–5), in money (v 6), and in false prophets (vv 8–10).
B. Society puts its faith in medicine (cf. 2 Chronicles 16:12), in the government, and in science and technology.
C. When our faith is misplaced, our faith is weak (Matthew 14:31; 6:30; Luke 8:25).

A. Its foundation is sounder (Romans 10:17).
B. There is but one kind of this faith (Ephesians 4:5).
C. This faith is more precious than anything (1 Peter 1:7).
