    Makes one wonder about the job his dad did at raising children.

    Trying not to throw STONES, just throw QUESTIONS. Now I know that being a great parent is no guarantee that kids will grow up right. But doesn't it occur to anyone to ask why the "greatest Christian of the 20th Century" would have a son that was reprobate?

    Anyone else having unanswered questions about this whole deal?

    I have heard stories about how Billy Graham's children were scared of him when he came home from his long trips on the road, he was a stranger to them. He was on the road so much that they essentially grew up without a father :(

    One of Jesus followers (Judas) stood against Him. Does that make anyone wonder about Jesus?

    I read the first few chapters in Rebel and I don't get the impression he was afraid of his father.

    I went along to his crusade here in Adelaide and it was awesome!, A few weeks ago I ran into a chap at church and he told me that was where he gave his life to Jesus over 5 years ago now. So I have nothing but good to say for the man. I would add that his dad is an awesome man of God also.

    Ben, a dear pen pal from India and his wife and little girl just arrived in Adelaide for a Fellowship in Medical Oncology (Cancer) at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Adelaide. They've rented a house near the hospital.

    'Sunny' came to visit us just before Christmas a few years ago, before he married. His name is Dr. Rohit Joshi. Sunny is about 32 now???

    I once heard a preacher talk about how sometime fathers get so wrapped up in thier ministry that they forget their first job is to their families. He used the example of Tozer and Billy Sunday. Apparently both of their children had issues (don't remember the exact nature of them).

    Anyways I don't care much for Billy Graham's way of doing things and his son has followe him right along in that. I have a copy of "The Name". It had some good parts, some not so good parts and some self-promotion in it. Not a bad book, but not a great book.

    Continue to popularize the use of emotion in an attempt to convert a person.

    But I don't think we need another thread on that topic.
