  • HE BANDAGED HIS WOUNDS.

  • WE'RE HERE BANDAGINGPEOPLE'S WOUNDS.
  • 00:17:05.777 --> 00:17:07.745

  • AND SO THE MILLENNIALS,THE YOUNG PEOPLE TODAY,
  • 00:17:41.846 --> 00:17:47.418
  • OF COURSE SAMARITAN'SPURSE WANTS TO
  • 00:17:47.519 --> 00:17:49.187
  • COMMUNICATE WITH THEM,THE BILLY GRAHAM
  • 00:17:49.287 --> 00:17:51.756
  • ASSOCIATION WE WANT TOCOMMUNICATE WITH THEM,
  • 00:17:51.856 --> 00:17:54.192
  • BUT THERE ARE CHALLENGES.
  • 00:17:54.292 --> 00:17:56.161
  • AND YOU'VE KINDOF FOCUSED ON THIS.
  • 00:17:56.261 --> 00:17:58.463
  • WHAT HAVE YOU DISCOVERED?
  • 00:17:58.563 --> 00:18:02.066
  • - I THINK EVEN FOR INMY HEART, ONE OF THE
  • 00:18:02.167 --> 00:18:05.570
  • GREATEST CHALLENGES AGENERATION THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:18:05.670 --> 00:18:08.039
  • KNOW WHAT THEY BELIEVEAND WHY THEY BELIEVE IT,
  • 00:18:08.139 --> 00:18:11.109
  • AND IT'S BEEN EASY FOR METO STAND UNASHAMED OF THE
  • 00:18:11.209 --> 00:18:13.978
  • GOSPEL OF JESUS BECAUSEYOU'VE SET THAT EXAMPLE.
  • 00:18:14.078 --> 00:18:16.981
  • DADDY BILL SET THATEXAMPLE BEFORE US, AND I
  • 00:18:17.081 --> 00:18:19.150
  • DON'T THINK ME OR ANYOF MY BROTHERS EVER
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:23.254
  • STRUGGLED WITH TAKING ASTAND AND BEING UNASHAMED
  • 00:18:23.354 --> 00:18:25.590
  • OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS.
  • 00:18:25.690 --> 00:18:27.358
  • BUT I'VE SEEN PEOPLE MYAGE, YOUNG MOMS AND MAYBE
  • 00:18:27.458 --> 00:18:31.563
  • EVEN WHEN I WAS INCOLLEGE AND NOW AS YOUNG
  • 00:18:31.663 --> 00:18:33.665
  • PARENTS RAISING CHILDREN,THEY KIND OF STRUGGLE IN
  • 00:18:33.765 --> 00:18:36.801
  • THEIR FAITH BECAUSE THEYDON'T KNOW WHAT THEY
  • 00:18:36.901 --> 00:18:38.503
  • BELIEVE AND WHYTHEY BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:18:38.603 --> 00:18:40.538
  • SO IT HAS BEEN MY CHALLENGETO THIS NEXT GENERATION,
  • 00:18:40.638 --> 00:18:44.375
  • KNOW WHAT GOD'SWORD HAS TO SAY.
  • 00:18:44.475 --> 00:18:46.811
  • WE HAVE TO KNOW WHO GODIS SO WE CAN HAVE A
  • 00:18:46.911 --> 00:18:49.581
  • FEARLESS FAITH IN THISFOREVER COMPROMISING
  • 00:18:49.681 --> 00:18:52.584
  • CULTURE THATWE'RE FACING.
  • 00:18:52.684 --> 00:18:54.819
  • - AND OF COURSE CISSIE,NOW YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:18:54.919 --> 00:18:57.121
  • TWO CHILDREN OF YOUR OWN,AND THEY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:18:57.222 --> 00:19:01.359
  • MEMORIZING SCRIPTURE, RIGHT?
  • 00:19:01.459 --> 00:19:03.194
  • - YEP.
  • 00:19:03.294 --> 00:19:05.230
  • - TELL THEM A LITTLE BITABOUT THE GOSPEL ALPHABET.
  • 00:19:05.330 --> 00:19:07.865
  • - SO A COUPLE OF YEARSAGO, I CAN'T REMEMBER IF
  • 00:19:07.966 --> 00:19:10.235
  • IT WAS RIGHT BEFORE DADDYBILL PASSED AWAY OR RIGHT
  • 00:19:10.335 --> 00:19:12.437
  • AFTER, I THINK IT WASRIGHT BEFORE, YOU
  • 00:19:12.537 --> 00:19:14.105
  • CHALLENGED ALL OF YOURGRANDCHILDREN TO LEARN
  • 00:19:14.205 --> 00:19:16.708
  • THE ABC GOSPELS. AND FORTHOSE WHO DON'T KNOW
  • 00:19:16.808 --> 00:19:18.643
  • WHAT IT IS, IT'S A SCRIPTURETHAT STARTS WITH
  • 00:19:18.743 --> 00:19:21.479
  • EVERY LETTER OF THE ALPHABET.
  • 00:19:21.579 --> 00:19:23.414
  • AND AT THE TIME ITHOUGHT MY LITTLE GIRL,
  • 00:19:23.514 --> 00:19:25.049
  • SHE WAS WAY TOO YOUNG.
  • 00:19:25.149 --> 00:19:26.317
  • I THINK SHE WASTHREE AT THE TIME.
  • 00:19:26.417 --> 00:19:28.319
  • BUT I WATCHED ALL OF YOURCHILDREN LEARN IT SO
  • 00:19:28.419 --> 00:19:31.089
  • QUICKLY AND THEY WERE ALLMEMORIZING IT TO DAD.
  • 00:19:31.189 --> 00:19:33.825
  • AND WHEN WE GOT HOMEAFTER DADDY BILL'S
  • 00:19:33.925 --> 00:19:36.494
  • FUNERAL, I SAIDSHE'S NOT TOO YOUNG.
  • 00:19:36.594 --> 00:19:39.364
  • SO WE STARTED, A. ALL HAVESINNED AND FALL SHORT
  • 00:19:39.464 --> 00:19:42.166
  • OF THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:19:42.267 --> 00:19:44.035
  • AND DURING THAT TIME, WEWERE ALSO LISTENING TO
  • 00:19:44.135 --> 00:19:45.670
  • DADDY BILL'S XM RADIOSTATION, AND ONE DAY
  • 00:19:45.770 --> 00:19:48.806
  • SHE HEARD HIM TALK ABOUTTHE BIBLE VERSE
  • 00:19:48.906 --> 00:19:50.575
  • SHE HAD JUST MEMORIZED.
  • 00:19:50.675 --> 00:19:52.343
  • AND FOR ME IT WAS A SWEETMOMENT BECAUSE SHE HEARD
  • 00:19:52.443 --> 00:19:56.581
  • HER GREAT GRANDFATHER ONTHE RADIO TALKING
  • 00:19:56.681 --> 00:19:59.083
  • ABOUT THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:19:59.183 --> 00:20:00.885
  • AND YOU AND DADDY BILLAND TAI-TAI MOM HAVE

  • STORMS OF LIFE COME, ANDIN THE SITUATIONS WE'RE
  • 00:20:09.260 --> 00:20:11.796
  • FACING IN THIS WORLD, IFWE KNOW WHO GOD IS, WE
  • 00:20:11.896 --> 00:20:16.200
  • WILL BE ABLE TO STAND INSTRENGTH AND TAKE ACTION
  • 00:20:16.301 --> 00:20:18.403
  • LIKE DANIEL 11 TEACHES US.
  • 00:20:18.503 --> 00:20:20.905

  • ONE CAN TAKE THATAWAY FROM YOU.
  • 00:20:34.585 --> 00:20:35.920
  • THEY MAY TAKE YOUR BIBLEFROM YOU, BUT THEY CAN'T
  • 00:20:36.020 --> 00:20:37.822
  • TAKE THE WORD OF GOD THATYOU'VE GOT IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:20:37.922 --> 00:20:40.525
  • AND THAT'S FORYOUR CHILDREN TOO.
  • 00:20:40.625 --> 00:20:42.026

  • IS THE BIBLE ITSELF.
  • 00:20:47.165 --> 00:20:48.599
  • - THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 00:20:48.700 --> 00:20:49.867
  • - AND SO MANY OF MYGENERATION, WE LOOK TO
  • 00:20:49.967 --> 00:20:51.369
  • OTHER BOOKS AND OTHERPEOPLE WHAT THEY MIGHT
  • 00:20:51.469 --> 00:20:53.171
  • SAY ABOUT GOD'S WORDWITHOUT GOING TO GOD'S

  • WORD FIRST, AND HE TELLSUS HOW TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:20:55.406 --> 00:20:58.042

  • 00:21:03.981 --> 00:21:06.951
  • AND CHRISTIANS ANDCHURCHES DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:21:07.051 --> 00:21:08.886

  • YOUR GRANDFATHER, WHEN IPRESENTED THE IDEA OF LET'S
  • 00:23:09.407 --> 00:23:13.678
  • BUILD A LIBRARY WHERE WECOULD LEAVE FOR HISTORY
  • 00:23:13.778 --> 00:23:19.350
  • AND FOR ANOTHERGENERATION WHAT GOD HAS
  • 00:23:19.450 --> 00:23:22.053
  • DONE THROUGH MY FATHER,YOUR GRANDFATHER'S MINISTRY.
  • 00:23:22.153 --> 00:23:26.691
  • I SAID WE'RE GOING TOBUILD THE LIBRARY TO LOOK
  • 00:23:26.791 --> 00:23:29.594
  • A LITTLE BIT LIKE A BARN.
  • 00:23:29.694 --> 00:23:31.762
  • YOU GREW UP IN A BARN,YOU STARTED IN A BARN,
  • 00:23:31.863 --> 00:23:33.564
  • YOU DIDN'T STARTIN A STADIUM.
  • 00:23:33.664 --> 00:23:35.867
  • THE FRONT IS GONNABE A GLASS CROSS.
  • 00:23:35.967 --> 00:23:39.003
  • AND A PERSON IS GONNAHAVE TO WALK THROUGH THE
  • 00:23:39.103 --> 00:23:40.771
  • FOOT OF THE CROSS TOENTER THE LIBRARY.
  • 00:23:40.872 --> 00:23:43.975
  • AND EVERY ROOM IS GONNABE ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:23:44.075 --> 00:23:47.144
  • HMM, HE SAID.
  • 00:23:47.245 --> 00:23:50.248
  • OKAY, HE SAID, I'M FOR THAT,
  • 00:23:50.348 --> 00:23:54.285
  • JUST DON'T PUT MY NAME ON IT.
  • 00:23:54.385 --> 00:23:56.921
  • SO BUT ANYHOW, YOU THEREIN CHARLOTTE, TELL US
  • 00:23:57.021 --> 00:24:01.726
  • SOME OF THE THINGS THATHAVE HAPPENED AT THE LIBRARY.
  • 00:24:01.826 --> 00:24:06.831
  • - YOU KNOW, THE FIRSTDAY THE LIBRARY OPENED, I
  • 00:24:06.931 --> 00:24:09.967
  • CAN REMEMBER WALKING INTOTHAT BUILDING AFTER WE
  • 00:24:10.067 --> 00:24:13.004
  • HAD THE PRESIDENTS THERE,AND I REMEMBER WONDERING
  • 00:24:13.104 --> 00:24:18.342
  • IF PEOPLE WOULD EVER COME,COME SEE SOMETHING LIKE
  • 00:24:18.442 --> 00:24:22.146
  • THIS, AND WHY WOULD THEYCOME HEAR ABOUT A PREACHER?
  • 00:24:22.246 --> 00:24:24.882
  • YOU HAVE THESE THOUGHTSIN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD.
  • 00:24:24.982 --> 00:24:27.518
  • BUT THE VERY NEXT DAYPEOPLE STARTED COMING.
  • 00:24:27.618 --> 00:24:30.555
  • AND YOU KNOW, IN THE LASTCOUPLE OF YEARS, WE HAD
  • 00:24:30.655 --> 00:24:33.324
  • THIS OLD FARMER, HEBROUGHT HIS WIFE DOWN,
  • 00:24:33.424 --> 00:24:37.328
  • AND HE LOOKED JUST LIKE AFARMER, BIBBED OVERALLS,
  • 00:24:37.428 --> 00:24:41.465
  • SOME TYPE OF PLAID, SHORTSLEEVE SHIRT, I THINK
  • 00:24:41.566 --> 00:24:44.502
  • IT WAS BURGUNDY IF IREMEMBER CORRECTLY.
  • 00:24:44.602 --> 00:24:47.471
  • AND HE WALKED IN, HISWIFE WAS DYING OF CANCER,
  • 00:24:47.572 --> 00:24:49.974
  • AND I BELIEVE HE WASGONNA SIT IN THE CAR
  • 00:24:50.074 --> 00:24:52.276
  • THE WHOLE TIME WHILESHE WENT INSIDE.
