why billy graham is freaking awesome

10Mar08

billy’s right on.

watch the larry king coverage here.

people are making a stink about billy graham saying that everyone can experience God’s love.  apparently billy said something that didn’t sit well with a lot of people on an interview with robert schuller (the hour of power guy).  look it up if you like.

but here’s the quote that got mr. graham in hot water:

“they are members of the body of christ because they have been called by God.”

the “they” here is extremely broad.  it’s basically anyone who’s not a “believer.”

people got pissed at that?

but that’s not the point of this post.  the point of this post is to praise billy graham for doing 2 things:

a) showing love to those non believers he spoke about, and then going a step beyond and giving the grace and peace headnod to those who spoke out againt his great heresy.

2) being a grown man and going by “billy.”  the guy is 90 years old this november and never told everyone to call him by something more respectable like bill, or william.  sounds like ‘ol billy boy likes to stay young at heart.

there’s an awesome documentary out there on billy graham that i saw in pbs a couple years ago, and i’m still finding reasons to like this man today.

GO BILLY!

  1. Couldn’t agree with you more. He’s the man. Well Jesus is really the man but you know what I mean.
