Billy Graham helped preserve America.

America’s founding fathers understood the importance and role of spiritual vitality in the health of our nation. Without public virtue, the nation becomes corrupt, and without virtue a republic does not survive. Virtue cannot exist apart from religion. In their design of a new nation, our founding fathers depended on these truths.

It is the end of an era with the death of America’s premier evangelist, radio and television preacher, Billy Graham. His mission was to call America and the world back to God and he did that by preaching an unequivocal life-transforming gospel of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Dr. Graham and his associates pioneered mass-media evangelism and took the message to scores of millions of people. In the mid-20th Century, he and his beloved “team” were instrumental in resetting the conscience of America to God’s standards and affirming those timeless values necessary for a just and free society. Though this time period of spiritual renewal was not on the scale of America’s previous historic awakenings, God used this man to deliver a message of repentance and return to the God who blessed and established us as a nation. America has not seen that kind of renewal since. Who will take his place? Who will God use?

To the Graham family and BGEA associates, we offer or sympathies for their loss, and the country’s loss. “The Team” is all together again in Heaven. As we remember Billy Graham with gratefulness, may we also whisper a prayer to God for our nation that our hearts would be turned back to Him and His Word. May God once again bless America with spiritual leaders like Billy Graham, who take up the mantle of calling us back to our spiritual roots.

    Dear D.F. Hite:
    And, yes, thank “you” for calling us back to our spiritual roots.
    In His Name,
