Billy Graham ( may he rest in peace and rise in glory )

The preacher Billy Graham was a man of great faith and integrity. During his long life he brought many people to the point where they were overwhelmingly aware of God's love for them and he never let any of them down or gave them cause to doubt his sincerity.

Sadly, the behaviour of other famous evangelists, those who were in it for the money, the power and the sex, devalued his profession and may have made people suspicious of him when he was nothing like those rotten apples. But long after the names of the phoneys have been forgotten people will remember Billy and the Church will pray that God will send more like him to take the good news of Jesus Christ out into the world whilst having that same good news embedded in their own lives.

"During a 1953 rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Graham tore down the ropes that organisers had erected to separate the audience into racial sections. He recounted in his memoirs that he told two ushers to leave the barriers down 'or you can go on and have the revival without me.' He warned a white audience, 'we have been proud and thought we were better than any other race, any other people. Ladies and gentlemen, we are going to stumble into hell because of our pride.'"
