A Tribute to Billy Graham, A Man Above Reproach

At a time in history when many Christian leaders and Bible teachers have had scandals or public criticism, Dr. Billy Graham has had neither during his entire life of ministry. He has been an impeccable example of what is said in Philippians 2:15-16. As Christians, we are admonished to be "...children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life..."

Being beyond reproach means living in such a way that people find it difficult, if not impossible, to think or speak poorly of another. How did Billy Graham and the people in his organization manage to do this? There are several factors that I have learned from my reading about his life and ministry.

One, I read in one of his books that he would never get on an elevator if the only other person on it was a woman. He made it a point to never put himself in a potentially compromising position of temptation.

Two, he sought to bring people together. An example of this is when he conducted a crusade in the southeastern part of the United States, during the time when racial equality was a huge issue-when integration and segregation were at the top of the list. He insisted that the two races mingle and sit together in the stadium.

Three, Dr. Graham always tried to do the right thing in his relationships with people and in how he conducted his crusades.

Four, he consistently preached the core beliefs of Christianity, basically of Jesus and the cross, and salvation by grace through faith. He never ventured into the areas that have blemished the basic message of salvation.

Billy Graham has been a beautiful example to all people, no matter what their religious or political persuasion, for adhering to the simple message of the gospel and living beyond reproach.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
