Why Aren't George W. & George HW Bush Attending Billy Graham's Funeral?

Why Aren't George W. & George HW Bush Attending Billy Graham's Funeral?

He will be remembered at a funeral Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina. Franklin Graham, Billy Graham's oldest son, will give the funeral message. "I can remember. being there as a teenager, just waiting and seeing thousands of people come to know the Lord".

"If he could speak to you today", Franklin Graham said, "he would ask, will you be making this journey to heaven?"

"He's always stuck to the gospel".

The preacher eventually took his crusades - a mix of hymns, preaching and patriotic fervor - to more than 80 countries, according to William Martin, a former historian at Rice University and the author of "A Prophet with Honor: The Billy Graham Story". "Just sticking to the gospel and pointing people to the cross, that's been such a blessing", he said. I'll be more alive than ever.

The service is scheduled for 12 p.m. on Friday at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte. The others were two U.S. Capitol Police officers who died in the line of duty in 1998 and civil rights hero Rosa Parks in 2005.

It is made of pine with a cross nailed on top and was crafted in 2006 by prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

"My father would not be comfortable with all of the attention in the Rotunda", the Rev. Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse, said in a statement posted to his public social media accounts. I've also interviewed countless people who have come to the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte to pay tribute to his legacy.

There are gaps between some evangelical teachings and Mr. Trump's agenda - and certainly his conduct - some scholars say, setting up several potential points of conflict between Graham and Mr. Trump.

President Donald Trump was among those high-profile Washington leaders who honored the late Rev. Billy Graham on Wednesday, while the influential evangelist lies in honor at the US Capitol Wednesday. The Rev. Franklin Graham whispered something to President Trump, who listened as he kept his eyes on the pine casket at the center of the room. "Fred Trump was my father". (NASB, Revelation 22:21). That is good news indeed!

"Members of the Graham family and friends and team members here are looking at tomorrow's funeral service as Billy Graham's last crusade", DeMoss said.

Later, I sought wise counsel from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association when confronting sin in my own life. Graham was an instrumental figure in how conservative, bigoted Christianity has infected American politics, which has led to our current, divisive state of affairs.

WTSP 10 News reported that Trump will be the only living president to attend the funeral. Limitations imposed on us on this earth are not known in heaven.

The music and video medley shows George Beverly Shea in Los Angeles in 1963, Ethel Waters in New York City in 1957 and Johnny Cash in Irving, Texas in 1971 singing "I'd Rather Have Jesus", "His Eye Is On The Sparrow", "Peace In the Valley" and "How Great Thou Art" before modern Gospel artists Michael W. Smith, Melinda Doolittle and Jason Crabb pick up and carry on the tunes.

At the close of the service, Trump, Ryan and McConnell presented three wreaths of red and white flowers adorned with ribbons indicating their area of responsibility, the executive branch, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

It was a historic day that Swanson was glad he didn't miss. Mr. Trump gave homage to the evangelist, reading from prepared remarks, and recalled the time he had attended a Billy Graham crusade at Yankee Stadium in NY.
