Has Billy Graham Suddenly Turned Political?

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) launched a major ad campaign last week encouraging Americans to "vote for biblical values" this November.

The ads convey one of two messages from evangelist Billy Graham:

The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial. As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that America will remain one nation under God. ...

The only Bible verses I see here quoted are by Jim Lincoln. And Jim does not use the Bible written by God, he uses the Bible written by Westcott and Hort, a modern version.

As for Billy Graham he is very similar to Westcott and Hort and Charles Finney and all the other folks who pursue salvation by works.

The Roman Catholic doctrine of salvation by works crept into protestant denominations in the form of Arminianism. Which is probably why Billy Graham, Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort all indulged in bits of popish philosophies. A very good reason for avoiding their religious productions.

Some of the commentary here is of the type that finds someone in the public eye, quickly finds a Bible verse, and blasts the public figure. God holds us accountable for what we say about people. It takes wisdom to know when compromise should be exposed and when people should be respected. Continual accusations and hate accusations with a zinger Bible passage is NOT what our Lord Jesus taught. Remember, many from our culture are blind by the tendency to find (or MAKE) a side, and go on the offense. It is not a balanced view of remaining at the center of Biblical tension. The entire Bible is our wisdom, and not just the favorite verses plucked out for the convenience of attack.

Showing brazen partiality in the support of Israel is a blatant denial of biblical principles.

Suddenly? No, he has always been highly political, and sought the seats at the top table.

Just from the excerpt I read Billy must want us to vote for Obama!
No, Graham does not state that Christians should vote for Obama. Graham and his son Franklin state that Christians should vote for Romney since Romney is against abortion. Like Mark M. stated there are only two possible candidates for president who stand a chance of winning and they are Obama and Romney. And like Mark M. stated not voting or voting for a third party candidate is just like making sure that Obama gets re elected. Romney has stated that if elected he would appoint Pro Life Judges to the Supreme Court making sure that Roe v Wade is overturned.

I do believe that Romney does stand for Biblical values moreso than Obama, and that the Republican party, for the most part, is closer to what I believe as a Christian than the Democrats are. There are only two choices Obama or Romney. I wish we could get Ron Paul, and I still like Huckabee, but those guys aren't choices. If we choose to stay at home, then Obama wins. There is no 'none of the above' button in the voting booth, and even if there were the sitting president would still have the best chance of winning.

I think Billy Graham is supporting the candidate that is closest to the kind of values that are found in the Bible. He happens to be a Mormon this go round. If he through his actions or inactions causes one less baby to be aborted than deathmonger Obama then I'll gladly vote for the Mormon. That doesn't mean I'll become a Mormon anymore than it means I'll become a Muslim by working here in the Middle East. There are 'good' people from all religions and I think we can agree on a lot of issues. Their spot in eternity is ultimately between them and God. In the mean time, let's all choose life.

The Last Time Dr. Graham got immersed in politics: "Nixon, Graham anti-Semitism on tape," _Chicago Tribune_, Mar 1, 2002, pg. 8,

Rev. Billy Graham openly voiced a belief that Jews control the American media, calling it a "stranglehold" during a 1972 conversation with President Richard Nixon, according to a tape of the Oval Office meeting released Thursday by the National Archives.

"This stranglehold has got to be broken or the country's going down the drain," the nation's best-known preacher declared as he agreed with a stream of bigoted Nixon comments about Jews and their perceived influence in American life.
"You believe that?" Nixon says after the "stranglehold" comment.

"Yes, sir," Graham says.

"Oh, boy," replies Nixon. "So do I. I can't ever say that but I believe it."

"No, but if you get elected a second time, then we might be able to do something," Graham replies.

Later, Graham mentions that he has friends in the media who are Jewish, saying they "swarm around me and are friendly to me." But, he confides to Nixon, "They don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country."

. . . Haldeman's diaries noted . . . "Graham has the strong feeling that the Bible says there are satanic Jews and there's where our problem arises."

"After the 1984 presidential election, Graham told CT that baldly partisan political lobbying in many of America's churches has exacted a price, and explained that even the perception of partisan political activity weakens his credibility as a preacher."

Don't worry Billy its not the politics or the politicians which have weakened your credibility as a preacher.

You are a self made man.

An Arminian in other words.

Very true, Angelia. His desire to hobnob with Presidents to put it mildly was disgusting.

James 2
6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and personally drag you into court?
7 Do they not blaspheme the fair name by which you have been called?
8 If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law, according to the Scripture, "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF," you are doing well.
9 But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.---NASB

Just from the excerpt I read Billy must want us to vote for Obama! Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses are definitely anti-Christian, so we can vote for them.

From what I can remember from my childhood, Billy Graham has always been political and not always in a good way. BTW - I am old enough to have two grandchildren.
