America and the world has lost an Evangelical giant with the passing of Billy Graham. He has been seen and heard both in person and through radio and television by more people than any other Evangelical minister in history. He lived just short of a century.
Many pastors, bishops, priests and other leaders of different faiths had theological differences with Billy Graham, but there were almost none who disputed his greatness. He preached a message of salvation by acceptance and confession of Jesus as Savior. His beliefs were grounded in the writings of the Apostle Paul, and echoed much of what Martin Luther believed about salvation.
There are millions of people living today whose confidence in salvation through Jesus Christ is based on the preaching of Billy Graham. He inspired not only believers, but also other Evangelical ministers and writers.
Today is not a day to mourn his passing, but to respect and appreciate his life’s work.
