Well done, thou good and faithful servant….

Speaking at TED in 1998, Rev. Billy Graham marvels at technology’s power to improve lives and change the world — but says the end of evil, suffering and death will come only after the world accepts Christ.

Mark 16:15 “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” It’s possible that Graham preached the Gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history — nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories, with hundreds of millions more through television, video, film and webcasts.

    Thank you. I said the prayer, again. Can you believe his prayer rallies used to be televised and actually had a large audience? I can’t see that happening today, except perhaps for our unfortunate Pope.

    He’s talking revolution, folks. The “offense” part insures, through the millennia, that there is an energy to this argument: that Jesus Christ is our only recourse and goal. He is our Salvation (proper terms describing God capitalized).
    And I can’t resist pointing out, that Marx don’t enter into it. It’s a spiritual governance; not contained within any state. Or prelate. Or individual. It’s a governance directly to the individual by the Holy Spirit. Did you ever notice how Billy Graham does not really argue anything? He says his thing, and then trusts the Spirit to execute the argument in each person’s heart and head. That is a form of brilliance.
    There have been evangelists with very unusual reach, I mean singular ones, in one generation after another (but not continually). Spurgeon was one. Billy was one. This happened in your time.
