DEAR BILLY GRAHAM: You often say in your column that the reason were separated from God is because weve sinned, but how do you know? Maybe God just doesnt want anything to do with us, or maybe he doesnt even exist. K.S.

DEAR K.S.: I want to assure you that God not only exists, but he also cares deeply about us. And he not only wants us to believe in him but also to come to know him as our friend both now and forever.
But something has happened that has cut us off from God and that something is sin. If God didnt exist, or if he were just a vague, impersonal force (like gravity), then sin wouldnt be a problem. But sin is a problem; in fact, its our greatest problem. God is holy and pure, and every sin is an act of rebellion that cuts us off from him. The Bible says, Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrong (Habakkuk 1:13).
The greatest discovery youll ever make is that God loves you and wants you to be part of his family forever.
