Billy Graham the famed, but humble Evangelical preacher has passed away at 99 years of age just months before his 100th birthday that would have been in November.
Billy Graham dedicated his life to preaching the Gospel never wavering from one simple message… God loves you… He is said to have preached the Christian Gospel to upwards of 215 million people in over 185 countries and authored more than 30 books.
He was born on November 7, 1918 in Charlotte, North Carolina. He provided spiritual counsel to every President from Harry Truman to Barack Obama and became close friends with several of them.
Billy Graham and his wife Ruth of almost 64 years before her passing in 2007 had five children together.
Billy Graham is credited with building the largest evangelical ministry ever and unlike so many others over the years, Billy Graham was never the subject of any scandals whatsoever… Not personal, not financial… He was truly a man of God… A man with integrity…
America could use another good jolt of what Billy Graham preached over the years… May he rest in peace…
Any officer can get by on his sergeants. To be a sergeant you have to know your stuff. I’d rather be an outstanding sergeant than just another officer.
