A message to America from Billy Graham
“People don’t want to hear that they’re sinners. To many people it’s an offense,” Graham proclaimed. “The cross is offensive, because it directly confronts the evils that dominate so much of this world.”
He went on to explain that the Christian message demands that believers embrace a new lifestyle — one that directly confronts mankind’s sinful nature.
“Sin is a disease in the human heart. If affects the mind and the will and the emotions. Every part of our being is affected by this disease,” Graham said.
The evangelist told viewers, though, that God can renew their spirits and that “there is no other way of salvation except through the cross of Christ.”
Graham also warned of a cultural slide in American society — one that he is clearly worried about. He said that the nation is in great need of “a spiritual awakening.”
“There’ve been times I’ve wept as I’ve gone city to city and I’ve seen how far people have wandered from God,” he told viewers.
At the end of the broadcast, Graham invited viewers to become followers of Jesus.
“Today, I’m asking you to put your trust in Christ,” he said, offering a prayer that would invite prospective believers into the faith.”
