Speaking frankly

"Speaking frankly" Continued...

Issue: "Daniel of the Year 2002," Dec. 7, 2002

That kind of reaction is nothing compared to the vitriol coming out of the Middle East, where several fatwahs, or death sentences, have been issued against Mr. Graham by radical Muslim clerics.

The target of the threats is unconcerned, however. "My life is in the hands of almighty God," Mr. Graham says. "I gave my life to Christ over 25 years ago, and He can take it today if He wants to. It's for a reason, it's for a purpose, and who am I to argue with God? I don't want to be silly or foolish, but you can't hide in a cave. We're all going to die sooner or later. I hope that when my day comes, I will be able to live up to that moment a life that is pleasing to my Father in heaven.

"I don't want to be politically correct and shame Him by disowning Him. I want to be faithful. I want to hear from His lips, 'Well done, thou good and faithful servant.'"
