Billy Graham preached - and lived - a Christian life

Home » Nation » Rev. Graham dies; world famous evangelist was admired by most Americans

"America's Pastor", as he was dubbed, died at 7:46 a.m. Wednesday at his home, where only an attending nurse was present, said Mark DeMoss, spokesman for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. It was brutal. It was blunt. As a member of Congress, I personally purchased and distributed to every member of the House and Senate a copy of his "My Hope" DVD, the special sermon released in celebration of his 95th birthday.

Billy Graham's message might seem simplistic in the cynical and increasingly secular world of today, but he always preached basic fundamental principles.

Ordained a Southern Baptist, he later joined a then-emerging movement called New Evangelicalism that abandoned the narrowness of fundamentalism.

Skar remembered watching the Billy Graham crusades on TV when he was young. My grandmother took me to see him. "I'm just promoting the gospel". I could not believe someone could speak so boldly about being a Christian. "Then we would come home and talk about life", Bush said in a statement.

I didn't go down to the altar when he gave the invitation.

Reverend Youngman Chan, a translator of one of Graham's biographies and an interpreter for his rally in Hong Kong Stadium in 1990, said he was impressed by Graham's infectious enthusiasm and modesty. I love the fact that God used him in the fall of '96 to change my heart. He and his wife Michelle are impacting millions of people with the gospel each year online and through live events. I wanted to go.

When he walked into the room, I remember thinking how much taller he was than I was expecting. In a way, I suppose it's because I've studied a great deal in the Scriptures concerning Heaven. I was meeting with my pastor, I had given my life to Christ just a few months prior, and he mentioned something along the lines of, "You don't know what God has planned for you". The ministers made the decision because, as one of them said: "I fear Catholicism more than I fear Communism". "Get here early so you can get a good parking spot". I know that I am going to Heaven and you can too.

Gigi Graham (L), daughter of Billy Graham, is comforted by Michelle Bachelor, an employee at the Billy Graham Training Center, inside Chatlos Memorial Chapel, February 22, 2018. I'm not much of a collector of things, but I do still treasure the Bible in which he scribbled his autograph for me. He accepted Jesus as his Savior, made Jesus his Lord and for a lifetime, Rev.

Charlotte historian Tom Hanchett said it was fitting that the city chose Graham's name in the 1980s for the expressway that serves as a main route to the airport. He is alive and he is alive for evermore. No friend, he is not dead. He believed God knew no borders or nationalities. And if he could, Rev. Saturated in it. He was his message...a simple man who had responded to God's love by placing his faith in Jesus, receiving the assurance that his sins were forgiven, that he would not perish, but would have everlasting life. Jesus died for you. He lived a pure life and left a profound legacy.

Complimentary shuttles will run continually from these lots to and from the Graham Family Homeplace, with the last shuttle departing 30 minutes before the public lie in repose closes. You can start with numbers, of course.

And that is Something to Think About for this week. "With your approval, we will move forward with these arrangements, so that Americans have this opportunity to pay their respects to the Rev".
