If I Could Just Touch The Hem of His Garment


A woman one day tried many physicians
But daily grew worse in the Bible we’re told
But when she had heard, she came to Jesus
And she found what she needed for her body and soul

Blind Bartimaeus sat by the wayside begging
Nobody to help him down life’s weary way
Then Jesus passed by and He heard His sad crying
He reached down His hand and He healed Him that day

One day I sat by the wayside begging
Nobody to help me down life’s weary way
Then Jesus came by and He heard my sad crying
He reached down His hand and He saved me that day

Chorus:
If I could just touch, the hem of His garment,
If I could just touch, some part of His clothes,
I know I’d be healed, my sins all forgiven,
If I could just touch Him, I know I’d be whole

More Compromising: Billy Graham, God, & George Bush


Reading George Bush’s new book Decision Points, I was shocked to read Billy Graham’s answer to Bush Sr.’s question.  He basically asked, “Is it essential to be born again?” You’ll have to read this for yourself…Its unbelievable!  

In the summer of 1985, we took our annual trip to Maine. Mother and Dad had invited the great evangelical preacher Billy Graham. Dad had asked him to answer some questions from the family after dinner.  That was typical of Dad, always willing to share.

It  would  have  sent  a  signal  of importance  to  have  had  Billy  to  himself,  but  that  is  not George H.W. Bush. He is a generous man, devoid of a big ego.  So  there  we  sat,  about  thirty  of  us—Laura,  my grandmother,  brothers  and  sister,  first  and  second  cousins —in  the  large  room  at  the  end  of  the  house  on Walker’s Point.

The first question was from Dad.  He said, “Billy, some people say you have to have a born-again experience to go to heaven.  Mother [my grandmother] here is the most religious, kind person I know, yet she has had no born-again experience. Will she go to heaven?

Wow, pretty profound question from the old man.

We all looked at Billy.  In his quiet, strong voice, he replied, “George, some of us require a born-again experience to understand God, and some of us are born Christians.  It sounds as if your mom was just born a Christian.” (Pgs. 48-49 of the Ebook)

Hopefully, Bush misremembers Graham’s exact words.  Otherwise, this is compromise of the nth degree!

Jesus said, “…Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3) It’s imperative.  It’s essential.  There’s no getting around it.  “…Ye MUST be born again.” (John 3:7)
