By Robert Wilkerson “In God. . . I trust; I will not be afraid” (Psalms 56:4). “Who do you trust to answer this $500 question?” asked the television show host. The name of the show was “Who Do You Trust?” Each contestant could win a prize by answering the question correctly, or naming who he or she would trust to answer it.
