Dr. Ryken discusses Billy Graham and his impact on the world.
Excerpt: 'The Scripture says that Jesus â€śgave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare Godâ€™s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built upâ€ť (Eph. 4:11â€“12). When Jesus gave out these gifts, one of the men who received the gift of evangelism was the Reverend Billy Graham. It is said that Mr. Graham has preached the gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history, reaching more than 200 million people in nearly 200 countries. More than a billion more have been reached through his television and radio programs, and through other media. As a result of his ministry of mass evangelism, several million souls have made decisions for Jesus Christ.'

Great Sermon! The greatest theologians of the twentieth century according to Billy Graham:
Karl Barth, Emil Brunner, Paul Tillich, and Carl Henry. Only Carl Henry was a bible believer. Come to your own conclusions about the 'faithfulness' of Billy Graham.
Is Saul Among the Prophets? Most people predestined for salvation become saved ON THEIR WAY to the house of God, and before the ALTER call is given. This is why they go forward.
The leper was cleansed before he was told to go to the priest and tell what the Lord had done for him.
There were some men who went to the BG's crusades because they were IN THE WAY of being saved.
