I was saved at one of his rallies back in 1989. God love that man.

Thoughts and prayers to the Graham Family and the entire BGEA family at large.

An incredible man - an incredible life of service. I am blessed directly as my father become a Christian watching one of his events on TV before I was born.

So sad. My Aunt died at 99 and we were planning a 100 birthday celebration.....not putting out money or anything but just the beginning stages. I feel for Graham’s family who probably thought he’d make it to 100. What a rip off.

Lord God, Jesus Christ, rest the soul of Thy servant Billy with the saints and the angels and protect America.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.

When Michael Jackson died, people discussed who else was as well know who when dead, would bring out the kind of outpouring that happened when Jackson died.

Billy Graham was who I thought of.

Millions upon millions have been touched by his ministry, in every part of the world.

Not even a Pope has had this kind of an effect.

Unfortunately, the liberals are already spinning up the narrative that Franklin Graham should stay out of politics “like his father did”.

What a contrast he was to the shyster televangelists who are the snake oil salesmen of Christianity. He walked with the leaders of the world and they paled in his shadow.

I was with a bus tour group last September and heading west on I-40 into Asheville (our stop for a couple of nights [we went to the Biltmore while there]), passed within a few miles of The Cove and Montreat where he lived.

RIP and thank you Dr. Graham. I watched a few of your specials and went to HS at an evangelical Christian school in Chester, PA (that school has since consolidated K-12 at a former public MS in Brookhaven, PA). Dr. Graham, I look forward to seeing you with Jesus.

I just heard on Fox that Graham preached to an estimated 261 million
souls in over 181 countries ove his life long ministry.

Also, Rev Jefferies said that Graham did not have one hint of scandal
during his entire life.

A faithful man of God.

I think he may disagree with you about “earning” his place in heaven. I believe he would say Jesus Christ paid the penalty of his sin and he lived a life of service to Him out of gratefullnes. :)

That message still resonates in so many who have been blessed by his life of service
