When Billy Graham held an evangelistic crusade in Tempe, AZ, I was there in that ASU Sun Devil Stadium Sunday, April 26, 1964. That one crusade really made a difference in my life. Didn't I send a missive to the Class of ’66 about my nights vandalizing windows and Arcadia doors behind my Scottsdale home? That was $5,000 damage. After the crusade where I believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and was saved, I began feeling guilty about the crime and though it took 5 years (from my age of 16 until I was 21), I called the Scottsdale contractor on the phone and confessed the whole dark deed. (I had learned that restitution was something Jesus wanted me to do, according to the Bible.) The contractor basically said, “Forget it, the insurance company has already paid for that.” Whew! And that’s not the only change that Jesus has brought about in my life. He’s delivered me from pornography and given me the power to overcome that. I, and my cousin, who doesn’t want to be named, had our own collection of Playboy magazines, but after I got saved, I tossed mine. He later became saved too and destroyed his half. I lived for girls in grade school and high school, but after my salvation experience, I live for God. One SHS guy, whom I won’t name either, and I paid to go to Cinema Portofino in Scottsdale to see an X rated movie. Paid! And paid dearly, as porn is addicting. I even remember the film’s title though I’d like to forget it forever! Praise Jesus he saved me from the power of sin! From my warped view of women, I now have a wonderful view of the opposite sex (1 Corinthians 6:18; 1 Corinthians 7) & a wonderful wife. If you went, did the Billy Graham crusade experience make a difference in your life? “Are you saved?” I have asked this question to a few of those who responded to my missives, mainly guys. Do you know you’re going to heaven? I do. I hope and pray you will.
