TRIBUTE TO BILLY GRAHAM

Charles Carrin

 Billy Graham, the spiritual-consort for millions–including Kings, Queens, Presidents, and common men on the street, has changed addresses for his final one.  The day he was saved as a youth no one knew the awesome plan God had for his life. But, today, almost every literate person on the planet has heard of him. I first learned of Billy Graham in 1949 when he came to Miami for a Crusade and my brother Van was an usher.  Later that year I moved to Atlanta to begin my ministry and in 1950 Billy held a Crusade there; I was one who sat in the ball park bleachers and listened to his basic, uncomplicated call of the gospel. Today, I know people who went to his Crusades as atheist, curiosity-seekers, but walked out as disciples of Christ.  Others came as casual believers and left as committed Missionaries. In his passing, the lines of an old hymn, “Am I A Soldier Of The Cross?,” seem appropriate:

 

                                                “Must I be carried to the skies on flowery beds of ease,

                                                While others fought to win the prize and sailed through bloody seas?

                                                No! I must fight if I would reign, increase my courage Lord,

                                                I’ll stand the test, endure the pain, supported by thy Word!”

 

Thank you, Billy, for your example!  You have earned your rest!

Comments On Today’s Politics by Cecero
     In the history of the Roman Empire no other speaker surpassed Marcus Tullius Cicero, 115-53 BC.   His writings on politics, philosophy, other topics, still influence Western thought today.  As an example, read his comments about a nation’s betrayal from within, remembering that this was spoken before the birth of Christ.  He said:

A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly, but the traitor moves against those within the gate freely. The traitor speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their arguments. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
  —Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. ... Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new, wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious."
  —Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
