Many people today believe in God, but they see God as a very distant and non-personal God who created and put the universe in motion, but then has little care or concern about his creation or us as human beings. Nothing can be farther from the truth. Not only did God create us in his image and likeness, but even after the Fall of our first parents Adam and Eve, God desired to reveal himself in a very real and personal way all throughout salvation history, culminating in the Incarnation of his own Son, Jesus Christ.
