Hear are some comments by leading Christian leaders:

Pastor Jesse Duplantis:
"Today we honor the life of Dr. Charles Stanley who has transitioned into his heavenly home. His anointed, faith-filled messages have touched countless lives all for the glory of God. Join us in prayer as we ask for his family & congregation to be comforted during this time."

Bishop T.D. Jakes:
Dr. Charles Stanley, an avid teacher of the faith who served at
@FirstBaptistATL for 51 years, died today. He was 90 years old. Without question, there are people waiting for him in heaven who are there because of his ministry! Join me in condolences to all those who mourn."

Pastor Joel Osteen:
"Dr. Charles Stanley has been a hero of the faith to our family and myself. His steadfast character, solid biblical teaching, and godly example to pastors and spiritual leaders is incalculable. His legacy will continue through his family and all of us who have been impacted by his life and ministry."

Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in California: 
"Charles Stanley went to Heaven today. He made his mark on this world for the Gospel and his incredible teaching of God's Word. I like so many others was blessed by hearing his messages on the radio and TV and he was a trusted voice we have all been encouraged by. It was my privilege to meet Dr. Stanley in person in Charlotte, North Carolina at the funeral for Billy Graham. He was warm and gracious. No doubt, he has already heard Jesus say, 'Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord.' Charles Stanley will be greatly missed."

He is survived by his son Andy Stanley; daughter Becky Stanley Broderson; six grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and half-sister Susie Cox. His former wife, Anna Stanley who had divorced him in 2000, died in 2014.
