Yes, the cove, the Billy Graham training center in Ashville NC is only about an hour away from me. Its been on the news all day today. He used to live there for a time , but he and his wife moved to Montreat NC to live there till he passed. He will be missed by many. But he will finally be together with his wife Ruth again whom he has missed for many years.
I grew up on him and Billy Graham was a true man of God and will be missed for ever. I am not trying to use his death to promote one theology over the other but the following is just a very short list of how I remember him:
He never preached from a teleprompter or notes but with Bible in hand and from the heart.
His message was always the basic gospel of redemption and salvation.
He preached that we all, including himself, are sinners and the road, through Jesus, to salvation is paved with praying and reading the Bible.
My wife answered his Pulpit Call!
Billy, you are seeing God face to face and resting in his bosom!
