The beloved evangelist Billy Graham passed away last Wednesday.
One of his daughters believes that the United States is in trouble.
This is huge.
Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz, 69, believes that America is in a mess and that the Christian church needs a spiritual awakening. “I believe my father’s death is heaven’s shot across the bow. It’s time for the church to wake up. It’s time for the world to wake up because you’re not promised tomorrow. You need to decide now where you’re going to spend eternity.”
According to our source, IJR, Lotz said that organized religion has hurt the society. The church has stopped teaching believers how to pray and how to read and study Scripture. “That’s why this nation is in a mess. We’ve lost our focus. We’ve lost our message,” Graham’s daughter asserted. “People go to church, but they’re not getting what they’re going for.”
Lotz lamented over the division currently plaguing the country. In today’s climate, anger and polarization that are ruling the day, only Jesus is the answer.
“If you look at my daddy’s life, he cuts across all those divides, whether it’s a racial divide, a political divide, a social divide. People all across the spectrum love and honor Billy Graham. Why? Because of his message and because he presented Jesus, and Jesus is the one who unifies us and brings us together.”
While they are mourning Billy’s death, Lotz said that they are at peace knowing their father, brother, grandfather and friend is home. During their last visit, Lotz said that the 99-year old evangelist looked over at her 11-year old granddaughter and said, “I love you.”
“That was the last words we heard him say,” Lotz recalled. “That’s enough.”
