What Do Billy Graham and Hugh Hefner Have in Common?

Dear friends,

In recent months, two of the most influential men of our time gave gone to meet their maker—Billy Graham and Hugh Heffner.

Surprisingly, they had a few things in common:

How tragic that Heffner only saw ‘religion’ in his upbringing, resulting in his endless pursuit of pleasure and leading millions astray during his lifetime.

Billy Graham, on the other hand, saw the Saviour and has left an amazing legacy—millions discovering real truth and hope (my own father was one of them). Imagine the welcome he must have received in Heaven.

The death of these two men highlights the eternal truth of the Scripture:

‘The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of our God stands forever.’ – Isaiah 40:8 NLT

Like Billy Graham changed the world through the word of God, your support is absolutely vital to continue to spread His word across Australia.

In recent years Billy Graham was asked what advice he would give to his younger self, if he could. Without hesitation he said that he would tell the young Billy to preach more about the blood of Jesus and the Cross—because that’s where the power is!

God calls and raises different people for different seasons. Like Billy Graham was for his time, Vision is firmly committed to unashamedly declaring God’s truth in our nation today. What an amazing opportunity we have to work together, and to be able to use such powerful connection tools as we have in today’s 24/7 media.

Did you know that over 80% of Vision’s costs are covered through donations? We are about to enter a very important time of year with the launch of our mid-year appeal on May 1st.

This will be your opportunity to be part of a growing group of believers who want to ensure the Gospel is presented clearly in a time when our nation is drifting. You can also help believers prevail against the strong winds of our culture by pointing them to the solid rock of Christ daily through Vision’s media ministries.

I am reminded of 1 Corinthians 3:11 NAS—‘For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.’

Your financial support today will help continue to build a legacy of true hope for many thousands of Australians.

PS The theme of our mid-year appeal will be Firm Foundations. Please prayerfully consider how you will respond by June 30. Your donation is tax-deductible and will help many stand firm on the solid rock of Jesus Christ.
