Billy Graham: "Defend the Gospel at Any Cost"
The last will and testament of evangelist Billy Graham has been released to the public. Graham died at age 99 in February, and a copy of the 16-page document was shared by WSOCTV.com on Friday.
Graham wrote some powerful words to his family, asking them to defend the Gospel at any cost, and affirming them as some of the finest Christians he knew. In the will, he states:
I ask my children and grandchildren to maintain and defend at all hazards at any cost of personal sacrifice the blessed doctrine of complete Atonement for sin through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ once offered, and through that alone. I urge all of you to walk with the Lord in a life of separation from the world and to keep eternal values in view.
Graham also seemed to understand that his will would be read on a wider scale. He wrote: “I urge all who shall read this document to read and study the Scriptures daily and to trust only in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.”
