U.S. evangelist Billy Graham dies aged 99

U.S. evangelist Billy Graham dies aged 99

'The debt owed by the global church to him is immeasurable and inexpressible.

But it was in the summer of 1938, on the 18th green of the campus golf course, where the 19-year-old Graham heeded the call from God to preach. "So grateful that I am among the millions that he led to faith in Jesus and the promise of eternal life".

He noted that Rev. Billy Graham Evangelistic Association announces that son Franklin will succeed Billy as leader. There are countless numbers who began their journey of faith because of Dr Graham. He delivered the invocation at eight presidential inaugurations.

Further, Huckabee said he believes that most people cannot only offer "profound condolences" to Graham's family, but "profound gratitude to God that this man showed up on planet Earth to point the way to millions of people to the knowledge of Christ".

In 1957 he preached nightly for 16 weeks in New York's Madison Square Garden. In 1950, he launched his weekly "Hour of Decision" radio program that became a staple of Christian broadcasting for 60 years.

There were also television programmes, films, daily newspaper columns, more than 30 books, and above all evangelisation around the world, having held hundreds of "crusades" around the world. The first time was when we met backstage at the 1972 Southern Baptist Convention in Philadelphia.

Graham once preached that AIDs was the judgement of God. "There were many people that were crying and weeping, and asking for God to accept them", said David Stanton with Assembly of God Radiant Life in Savannah.

Billy Graham's wife died in 2007 at age 87. He was a man who received incredible adulation and love during his life, and yet he always said the first question he was going to ask when he got to Heaven was "why me?" Graham was in this effort are mixed.

An admirer of Graham who attended his crusades as a youngster growing up in Cleveland, Waller said, "I appreciate his impact, but my critique would be that he didn't use his platform as much as he could for reconciliation". After the election, Rev. The two talked extensively the next day and later, Graham sent Bush a Bible and that he said helped him to better understand Christianity and change his life.

Graham's influence on world leaders included being an advisor to many American presidents as well as Queen Elizabeth II.

"Billy Graham is not dead", Huckabee told Fox News' "America's Newsroom". Yes, he still "pastored" presidents on demand, but he became wary of partisan politics, avoiding political controversies and associating too closely with politicians.

"As anyone growing up in the 1950s and 1960s can tell you, it was hard not to notice and be impressed by the Reverend Billy Graham".

On a more personal note, I had the privilege of meeting and visiting with Graham several times. "He was never involved in any scandal at all, because he is a man of integrity". Graham's organization or ministries.

The evangelist was born in 1918 and grew up on a dairy farm in Charlotte, North Carolina.
