We don't have a Graham thread, do we?.........

But honestly, I don't know what to say about him, except he hung out with famous people and many had nice things to say about him. He spoke against segregation and apparently brought millions to Christ, whatever that may mean; but I don't know his theology or how it would last past his lifetime. He was president of Northwestern Bible College in Roseville, MN for a while and founded radio station KTIS. All rather vanilla, so somebody help me out here........
I have a certain notoriety among the lesser gods........

I, for one, can't help out much on BG. Don't believe there was any complex theology associated with his bible-thumping tirades. What I recall with appreciation were his frequent statements in support of Israel.

He just brought the Word.

And, although I am sure he had a ton of opportunities to get rich, he did not.

"According to the wealth-tracking site TheRichest.com, Billy Graham's net worth was an estimated $25 million at the time of his death. That would rank Graham as one of America's eight richest pastors, Beliefnet.com reported."
