Pastor Neil Eaton: We Need More 'Peacemakers' Like Billy Graham

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

The Rev. Billy Graham, who was laid to rest on Friday, was a peacemaker — and "we need even more voices that will courageously lead the way," Pastor Neil Eaton of New Hope Chapel told Newsmax TV.

"There should be more voices that area, unifying," Eaton, whose church is based in Plymouth, Massachusetts, told "Newsmax Now" host John Bachman in an interview.

"It's easy to get into vitriolic language," he said. "It stirs up more anger.

"But how can we find peace together?" Eaton asked. "How can we be peacemakers?"

The senior pastor — who founded New Hope Chapel with his wife, Gail, in 2002 — then referenced Matthew 5:9 in the New Testament.

"Jesus said: 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they would be called the children of God,'" Eaton told Bachman.

"Billy Graham was one of those — and we need even more voices that will courageously lead the way."

This is especially important in today's diverse society, he noted.

"I find that when I listen to people of a different ethnicity or color, I want to hear what they have to say," Eaton said.

"People aren't listening to each other — and it is so important for us to do that."
