Faith, of course, is the cornerstone of Christianity, and the Rev. Billy Graham has touched on the topic frequently throughout his years in ministry.

Graham, who has shared the Gospel for more than six decades, has spoken on the topic of faith through a variety of avenues, including at his many stadium-sized crusades. He has spoken transparently of his own struggles with faith.

Graham’s ability to communicate with humility has frequently been cited as a reason for his popularity in modern culture.

Addressing the early years of his own faith, Graham revealed a personal struggle in believing whether the Bible was the true authoritative word of God. Eventually, Graham said his doubts were cast away after speaking to Christ.

"I can truly say that since that moment, I’ve never doubted that the Bible is the word of God,” Graham once stated. “Furthermore, God has confirmed this to me time after time, as I have witnessed the power of the word of God at word in the lives of people."

Here are seven other times Graham spoke about faith.

• "Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion. It is like a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ."

• "The word of God hidden in the heart is a stubborn voice to suppress."

• "I have a certainty about eternity that is a wonderful thing, and I thank God for giving me that certainty. I do not fear death. I may fear a little bit about the process, but not death itself, because I think the moment that my spirit leaves this body, I will be in the presence of the Lord."

• "I think there are sincere people who have intellectual problems with the whole idea of a God-man who lived two thousand years ago, died at the age of 33, rose from the dead and is our only way to salvation."

• "You could almost have identical twins standing side-by-side, one accepting and one rejecting. This is a mystery that I don’t understand; it’s part of the sovereignty of God. But I do know that when we faithfully proclaim the Gospel, his word will not return void. It accomplishes what God wants it to."

• "People put off making decisions. Accepting Christ is the biggest decision of all, but they put that off, too. … Often there is a hurry. Life is a fragile thing. None of us know when it may end for us."

• "Our job is to faithfully proclaim, to pray, to sow the seed, and that seed may germinate in many ways."
