    And no scandal of any kind, whether it be financial, sexual[1] or whatever. He always insisted that his crusades were publicly audited so as to avoid even a hint of impropriety






    1. He's responsible for the Billy Graham rule

    I'm always still in trouble again

  2. Amen Jedidiah, RumTumTugger amen'd this post.

    Dear Friend,

    My father, Billy Graham, went into the presence of the Lord on February 21, 2018.

    The Bible tells us in Revelation 14:13: ďBlessed are the dead who die in the Lord Ö that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow themĒ (NKJV).

    Many have said that his death ends an era, but he would be the first to say that when Godís ambassadors die in Christ, the Lord raises up others, because the preaching of the Gospel will go forward until the end of the age.Godís blessing continues as He opens doors for the Gospel around the world. BGEA remains committed to preach the Word in season and out of season across the globe.
    Yes, we will continue the profitable fraud for as long as we live.
    My siblings and I would appreciate your prayers in the days ahead as we honor a man who served the Lord with his life, loved his family, and was always grateful for Godís faithful people who supported him in the work of the ministry in Jesusí Name.
    Supported him very well indeed.
    As we lay to rest this very public ambassador, please pray with us that the testimony he leaves behind will touch many lives and point them to salvation in Jesus Christ. My fatherís journey of faith on earth has ended. He has been reunited with my mother and has stepped into the eternal joy of Heaven in the presence of his Savior, in whom he placed his hope.
    His journey has cetainly ended, like happens to all of us who begin to exist, he's dead.
    If you would like to know more about my fatherís life, share a memory, or read public visitation details, please visit BillyGraham.org.
    And please, if you should be moved to donate whatever you can afford to the ministry I would sincerely appreciate it.
    God bless you, and thank you for your prayers for our family and the staff of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
    Sincerely,

    Franklin Graham
    Yes, because your family and staff are in such need of prayers. Poor things.

    Oh, okay, I suppose you're right. Didn't notice it was memorial garden. Feel free to delete my posts.

    Dude, get this crap out of this thread. This is a Memorial thread. Show some decency for once.

    To which I subscribed at an early age, and has served me quite well.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

    Yeah, I get ya. My problem with his success is that his writing and speaking fees is how he dupes the gullible.
