BLYTHSVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEW! SATURDAY, FEBRAURY 11, 1956 Oversea* with BILLY GRAHAM By George Burnham (Chattanooga News-Free Press Writer) DELHI India — Reporters were lounging around the room in Bombay firing questions at Billy Graham, Mob violence was taking place just a few blocks away The fact that a press conference was under way was unusual since report- ens had rather write about fighting than preaching But the most unusual thing about this press conference was the type ofquestions asked The reporters didn't ask about Rus S1 a, Secretary of State Dulles, politics or segregation. 4 Writer started it off with this leading Indian statesman A writer startea on Eulganin and Khrushc question. "Whnt must a person do to become a Christian?" And Billy answered: * » » "FIRST OF ALL, you must acknowledge that you are a sinner and be willing to renounce your sins Then- you must believe by faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He paid for your sins by dying on the cross. "But that's not all. You must invite Him into your heart, humble yourself and surrender your will to Christ. The Bible says if you confess your sins God is faithful and just to forgive you for your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness." . Almost before he had finished with the. answer another writer popped up with this one: "What is sin?" "Sin is the breaking ot God s moral laws. H you break one of the Ten Commandments you are a sinner, I have broken them. If you JaU to'live up to the Sermon on the Mount you sin. I have failed to do this. "Jesus Christ lived a perfect lue, without sin. If you fail to live as good as Jesus you are a sinner. I have never lived a day when I was as good as Jesus Christ. Have you? ' "The Bible teaches that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. 'The Bible says we are bom to sin and-then are sinners by choice." Another question: "What happens when a person dies?" '' ' ' THE ANSWER: "You have a body, with arms, legs, hands, nose and feet. When you die your body goes to the grave. But you are more than a tody. You are a living soul,-created in the image of God. "Your soul will never die, accord- fag to the Bible. The Bible says that the soul of the Christian, at death will immediately go into the presence of God and will remain with Him forever. The soul that dies without Christ will be oast into outer .darkness, separated from God, in a place that Jesus called hell." Then a reporter asked this: "What happens when a little child dies? You said they were born in sin. Would a just God punish them?" Billy answered: "I believe the Bible teaches that all children who die before they reach the age of accountability will go to heaven." Another queried: "How can a person know that he has eternal life with God?" THE ANSWER: "The Bible says, 'He that hath the Son hath life; he that hatti not the Son hath not life.' It is a matter of faith. Faith goes beyond • understanding. Surrender your will to Christ and you will know in your heart that you are a child of God. You will lose your fear of death. You will have a smile on your face. You will go out and begin to live the Christian life " Many other questions were asked along the same line and all were answered with "the Bible says . . ." The reporters were milling around ki the room after the conclusion of the press conference when one of them walked up to Billy, stuck out his hand, and said: "I want to become a Christian. Will you show me how?" The reporter had a smile on his face when he went out the door. An Indian Christian overheard a say this ihchev when tiie Russians were in Madras, India: "You have made two mistakes. You have left God out of your plan and you use violence to accomplish your objectives. Being a western nation, you should have accepted Jesus Christ." The quote isn't as remarkable as the fact that it was made by a Hindu man who worships many gods. Bulganin was reported to havf replied that Russia was now much more tolerant regarding religious worship. BRIDGES (Continued from Page W fin. He said Griffin denied sending the wire. Under questioning by newsmen, Chairman George said It was unlikely the committee would check the telegrams. He said he regards it of little importance to the investigation. "Inexcusable Effort" X reporter asked George whether' Steadman, in questioning Case sharply about the timing of his Senate speech denouncing the $2,500 contribution, was "stating the committee's views." "Generally that's right," George replied. "We think it's relevant and pertinent and very important." Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark), one of the authors of the gas bill said Case's speech, made on Friday before_ the Senate voted Monday, was an "inexcusable" effort to affect the final outcome. Under pressing questions from Steadman, Case insisted yesterday he had no control over the timing. He said it was not until the day before that he had decided to vote against the gas bill because of the contribution offer, of which he first learned Jan. 25. In the interval,'he said, he had tried to check on its'source. Not So Lucky HENDERSON, Ky. W) — An unidentified woman driver ran out of gasoline in front of a filling station. But she wasn't as lucky as she thought. The filling station was out of gasoline, too. • In time of illness or any household emergency call on this Reliable pharmacy.

(fl — Sir Roger Makins, Britain's ambassador to Washington, said today that reports of Anglo-American rifts should be taken "with a pinch of salt." Makins devoted most of his prepared for delivery at the Citadel, a military college, to illustrations of U.S.-British agreement on foreign policy problems around the globe. Reviewing in detail the recent Washington talks between President. Elsenhower and British Prime Minister Eden, Makins Said the two countries see eye to eye on such matters as Middle East tensions, the Baghdad Pact, the Com- crats to nominate Truman as their 1956 candidate. Democrats are trying to manufacture issues, he said, when they have a "perfect one in Truman." "Revival of Appeasement'* Gov. George N. Craig, addressing a GOP dinner at Corydon, Ind., said a Democratic victory in November would lead to "revival of appeasement" and U. S. recogni tion of Red China.
