Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has recalled the horrible shock she suffered almost one year ago with the death of her husband of 49 years, Danny Lotz, noting that she had to begin looking for God's blessing even in the midst of pain and grief.
"One year ago this August, my husband of 49 years moved to our Father's House. He left suddenly … without saying goodbye. The shock was horrific. But even during the days that followed, I knew that God had not been caught by surprise," Lotz wrote in a blog post.
"Danny's move was not an accident — at least from Heaven's perspective. So I began to look for God's blessings. They were easy to find because He showered them down in abundance, and is still doing so today. But I have had to choose to open my eyes and focus on the blessings instead of on the pain and grief," she added. more >>
While God is all-powerful, it is Satan who is the author of evil, declared famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham in a recent advice column.
Graham was asked in a Q&A column published in The Kansas City Star about the originator of evil and how an all-powerful God was not responsible for evil.
"Who is to blame for all the evil in the world, God or the devil? I'd like to think it's the devil, but if God is all-powerful, doesn't that make Him responsible for everything that happens, even evil?" asked the person. more >>

In a message posted to the social media site on Monday, Rev. Graham explained that the nation "is in a huge mess" and needs prayer and spiritual healing.

God is able to change the heart and mind of an atheist, according to famed evangelist the Reverend Billy Graham.
In an advice column published Tuesday, Rev. Graham was asked a question by someone who wondered how a committed atheist can convert to Christianity.
"I read an article the other day about a woman who had been a committed atheist, and somehow she became a Christian. But I have some friends who are atheists, and I can't imagine any of them ever believing in God or becoming Christians. Could they ever change?" posited the person. more >>
It's important for people to help support the elderly and the helpless, said evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In an advice column published Friday, Rev. Graham was asked by a person who works at a nursing home why people tend to not visit their elders.
"I've worked in a nursing home for almost 20 years, and the hardest part of my job is watching people dump their relatives here and then never come back to visit them. Why are people so insensitive? Even if someone has dementia they still deserve our love, don't they?" inquired the person. more >>
