On Christianity

By Billy Graham

This article was published July 9, 2014 at 1:55 a.m.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I believe in God because I don't think it's logical to think this universe just happened. But where does Jesus fit into the picture? I apologize for asking what's probably a simple question, but I didn't grow up in a church-going family.

-- H.R.

DEAR H.R.: Don't apologize; I'm thankful you want to learn about God! As I've often said, the person who's in the greatest danger spiritually is the one who never thinks about God or wants anything to do with Him.

You're right; it's not logical to think that the universe just "happened." Whether we look into the heavens through a telescope or examine a droplet of blood through a microscope, we see incredible beauty and complexity that could only come from the hand of an all-wise and all-powerful Creator. As the Bible says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands" (Psalm 19:1).

But looking only at the created world doesn't tell us everything we need to know. For example, it doesn't tell us if God loves us and cares about us. Nor does it tell us how we ought to live. Most of all, it doesn't tell us what we ought to do about the sense of sin and guilt we all feel in our hearts.

And this is why Jesus Christ came into the world. He was God in human form, and He came to demonstrate God's love to us. He did this by giving His life for us, so we could be forgiven of our sins and go to be with Him in heaven forever. God will accept you just as you are, and you can begin your journey of faith by asking Christ to come into your heart today. Your life will never be the same.
