Billy Graham still preaches the Gospel of inclusion

Billy Graham

MONTREAT, N.C. — Every morning the world’s most famous evangelist walks slowly and carefully up the narrow road twisting behind his log cabin. He sits on an iron bench, set in a clearing amid the pines where a tiny stream plunges down the ridge to form an icy pool far below.

Here, Billy Graham, 86 and every day more frail, prays, “Help me, Lord.” Here, he practices his voice, a habit of 40 years, “like an opera singer does the scales. Yes. Yes. Yes. No. No. No.”

He’s warming up for his 417th crusade — three nights of Christian testimony and music in New York, culminating in his inimitable call to come forward to God. The event in late June will be his first appearance in the city since he packed Central Park in 1991.

Today, as many fundamentalists and “traditionalists” refuse to share podiums with people who don’t share their vision of salvation, Graham opens his events to people of every ...

To the Wolf who is likely Ed himself!

ED is a universalist and you are either him or another universalist or universalist defender in which case you partake of the evil deeds of the universalists as does Chill!

It is the words of Christ that you deny and transgress!

Therefore you have not God!

The best you can do is try and discredit me with unfounded slander, but you cannot discredit the words of Christ who you deny!

If you want to defend Universalists or universalist doctrine, then you will have to do a little more than slander me, you will have to prove that it is the doctrine of God!

That is impossible because the Bible plainly declares the eternal wrath of God on the ungodly in so many places!

If you dont like God's word, I suggest you stop presenting yourself here as a "LOVING CHRISTIAN"


News Item5/26/05 6:28 PM
Plasure Mike, also if you open up that link, underneath that article that I posted there is a list of Billy Balaam Graham's deeds with dates, showing his ongoing apostasy.

Interesting reading


News Item5/26/05 2:57 PM
Again, we say, Anthony, go to bed and maybe you will learn how to fight your own personal battles with your own weapons instead of using JESUS' words as your bull-horns. For you to be a believer, you sure buck like an unbeliever. You are definitely in need of being taught to behave as a lamb and deal with your uncontrollable religious piety that has absolutely no resemblance of God or Christ, even though you mask what you say in His words. In fact, you are perhaps one that the bible speaks of as those who dress up in sheep's clothing and yet are wolves inwardly. Yea, I think I finally figured you out. It took a minute, but I think I got it. So stop hiding in those clothing, or stop behaving out of character, sheep. Or goat? Well, by the way that you blabber your lips with the proper words of Scripture, though used in the wrong text and with a hateful retort, and yet you have no consciousness of what you are saying, your heart being so far displaced from your lips, you are as Jesus said, "your heart is in one condition, but yet being camoflauged by the unconscious words of your uncontrollable tongue in between your ever-flowing lips. Sad situation we have here brothers. Very sad.!

Thank you Anthony,
I should have mentioned that the link I put up comes from (not really) Christianity Today and is entitled, "We are brothers." That is what John Paul II said to Billy G in 1981.

News Item5/26/05 12:49 AM
Dr. Graham appeals to the Bible. Judge his message, his policy, and his fellowship by the Bible. By that standard he stands exposed as blatantly flaunting the plainest statements and standards of Scripture.

God's work cannot be done in such a way. The Bible says: "Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully" (Jeremiah 48:10).

If the Bible is right, Dr. Graham is wrong. The Bible is right.

Either Dr. Graham should drop his appeal to the Bible or he should cease his wanton disobedience of its message and methods. We sincerely pray that even at this late stage Dr. Graham will take the latter course and "earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3).


News Item5/26/05 12:47 AM
A woman was arrested at one of his Russian meetings for displaying a banner with the message "We have more than 150 prisoners for the work of the gospel." Dr. Graham defended the police for arresting her. He said, "We detain people in the United States if we catch them doing things that are wrong. I have had people coming to my services in the United States causing disturbances and they have been taken away by the police."

The Bible says, "Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body" (Hebrews 13:3). Dr. Graham in Russia did not want to be reminded of the Baptist pastors and other Bible believers being held in prisons and concentration camps for their faith. They are brave sufferes for Christ. Billy Graham added to their agony. He stabbed them in the back. He sided with the atheists who arrested a courageous lady who dared to draw his attention to their plight and condemned her as a disturber and a wrongdoer. Dr. Graham should remember that the Bible says, "In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, ... even thou wast as one of them" (Obadiah 11). He identified his Russian friends, and they were not his persecuted Baptist brethren. He stood on the other side with their persecutors.



News Item5/26/05 12:46 AM
In the early church, converts "continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship" (Acts 2:42). They were not placed under the care of deniers of the gospel. The Bible says, "Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them" (Ephesians 5:100). Dr. Graham's policy is a blatant violation of the Bible which he professes to hold as his supreme authority. No converts should be sent to any church where they cannot emulate the converts of apostolic times and fellowship on the basis of sound doctrine.


Of Russia Dr. Graham said, "I think there is a lot more freedom here than has been given the impression in the States because there are hundreds, thousands of churches open." He went on to give the impression that he found more religious freedom in Russia than in England: "In Great Britain, they have a state church ... Here [in Russia] it is a free church, in the sense that it is not headed officially, as the Church of England is headed by the queen." (Los Angeles Times, May 14, 1982. Emphasis added.)



News Item5/26/05 12:45 AM
"With the power and the authority without which such an office would be illusory, the Bishop of Rome must ensure the communion of all churches," he wrote in the 115-page document. "For this reason, he is the first servant of unity."

The European, 2-8 June 1995


Long ago Dr. Graham stated his policy for following up an enquirer: "His name and address and a lot of information about him is taken and within 24 hours that is sent to a minister of the church of his choice regardless of denomination" (Interview in U.S. News and World Report, August 27, 1954). This policy has been consistently carried out. For example, in the Milwaukee crusade of 1979, Sister Maureen Hopkins, a Roman Catholic nun, was a member of the crusade committee. She received some 3,500 names and telephone numbers for her church to follow up. All 3,500 were invited to a special mass (remember what we showed about the mass) "to remind enquirers that their commitments to Christ should be nurtured within the sacramental framework of the Church" (The Christian Courier, Milwaukee, September 1979).

Does the Bible have anything to say about such a policy? It certainly does.



News Item5/26/05 12:43 AM
John Paul II utterly contradicts this. Far from pointing men to Christ, he places a barrier in their way to keep them from Christ.

2. The Pope invites men "to turn with me to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Jesus, in whom 'is effected the reconciliation of God with humanity.'"

He says that to Mary's Immaculate Heart "we have repeatedly entrusted the whole of humanity" (Reconciliation and Penance, pp.139, 140).

The Bible knows nothing of such language. Paul said, "I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace" (Acts 20:32) -- not to Mary.

What kind of spiritual leadership is the Pope giving? Is he pointing men to Christ? How can Billy Graham appeal to what the Bible says and at the same time hail a Mariolator as an evangelist who points men to Christ?


Pope John Paul II has just published his twelfth encyclical, Ut Unum Sint (May They All Be One). In it he said the Roman Catholic Church would not change its doctrines for the sake of unity, and asserted his rule as the prime mover behind the ecumenical movement.



News Item5/26/05 12:41 AM
All this is most deceitful. John Paul II proclaims every Roman Catholic heresy noted above -- and then goes even further.

1. The Pope bans sinners from going directly to Christ for pardon.

Confession to a priest to obtain absolution from him "constitutes the only ordinary way in which the faithful who are conscious of serious sin are reconciled with God ... every serious sin must always be stated, with its determining circumstances, in an individual confession." (John Paul II, On Reconciliation and Penance, p.132. The emphasis is his. The only extraordinary way he allows is confession to a priest or priests in a group exercise pp. 128, 132.)

The Pope allows no access to Christ for pardon, except through a human priest. Is this "pointing men to Christ"? Nowhere in the New Testament is any man placed between a penitent sinner and Christ.

Jesus said: "Come unto me ... and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

The Bible says, "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest [Christ] ... let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith" (Hebrews 10:19-22).



News Item5/26/05 12:39 AM
If he does he can have no message of salvation. Rome's gospel pronounces a curse on any man who comes to believe that he is assured of salvation and heaven in this life: "If any says that he will for certain ... have that great gift of perseverance unto the end, -- let him be accursed" (Council of Trent, Session VI, Canon 16). Has Billy Graham no better message than this?

Does he still preach Rome's gospel?

The Apostle Paul opposed such as preached a gospel like Rome's. He said, "Though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:8). Paul curses Rome's gospel, but Billy Graham boasts that it is the same as the one he preaches.


He wrote this in a lengthy article in the Saturday Evening Post, Jan./Feb. 1980, and went on to refer to John Paul II as "one of the greatest moral and spiritual leaders of this century," "an evangelist," who "sought to speak to the spiritual hunger of our age in the same way Christians throughout the centuries have spoken to the spiritual yearning of every age -- by pointing people to Christ."



News Item5/26/05 12:38 AM
4. Rome's gospel denies the sole mediation of Christ.

"The blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix" (Vatican II, Lumen Gentium, VIII Para. 62). Paragraph 61 of the same document says Mary "shared her Son's sufferings as He died on the cross. Thus, in a wholly singular way she co-operated... in the work of the Savior in restoring supernatural life to souls." Pope John Paul II has flatly stated that in Mary "is effected the reconciliation of God with humanity ..., is accomplished the work of reconciliation" (Pope John Paul II, On Reconciliation and Penance, St. Paul Editions, p.139).

It is vain for Rome to claim that all this does not violate the Scripture, which says, "There is ... one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (I Timothy 2:5). The Bible says, "God was in Christ [not Mary], reconciling the world unto himself" (II Corinthians 5:19). Again, the Bible says, "God hath given to us eternal life and this life is in his Son" (I John 5:11). Contrast the slogan adopted by the second Vatican Council, "Death through Eve, life through Mary" (Lum. Gent., VIII Para. 56).

This is Rome's gospel.

Does Billy Graham still boast of preaching the same gospel?



News Item5/26/05 12:37 AM
Rome's gospel is a gospel of human works and merits. "Sins must be expiated. This may be done on this earth through sorrows, miseries and trials of this life and, above all, through death. Otherwise, the expiation must be made in the next life through fire and torments or purifying punishment" (Vat. II, Indulgentiarum Doctrina, I.2).

In total contrast, the Bible says, "Being now justified by his [Christ's] blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him" (Romans 5:9).

Again: "Therefore being [i.e., having been] justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 5:1). "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1). The Apostle John gives the reason for this freedom from condemnation: "Your sins are forgiven you for his [Christ's] name's sake" (I John 2:12).

The gospel is "Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin" (Romans 4:7-8). This is the gospel that Rome rejects.

Does Billy Graham still claim to preach this gospel of Rome?



News Item5/26/05 12:36 AM
Does Billy Graham still claim to preach this gospel of Rome?

3. Rome's gospel denies justification by grace through faith in the merits of the righteousness of Christ.

"If anyone shall say that it is by the righteousness of Christ itself that men are formally justified, -- let him be accursed" (Council of Trent, Session VI, Canon 10). "If anyone shall say that justifying faith is nothing else than trust in the Divine mercy pardoning sins for Christ's sake; or that is is that trust alone by which we are justified, -- let him be accursed" (Canon 10). Here Rome places her curse on the very Word of God!.

The Bible says, "By the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight ... But now the righteousness of God ... which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe" (Romans 3:20-22).

Again it states; "A man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law" (Romans 3:28), and "God imputeth righteousness without works" (Romans 4:6).



News Item5/26/05 12:35 AM
"The mystery of the Eucharist is the true center of the sacred liturgy and indeed of the whole Christian life" (Vaican II, Eucharisticum Mysterium, Intro. A.). In this central act of worship Rome claims that the Mass is "a sacrifice in which the sacrifice of the cross is perpetuated." Again: "In the sacrifice of the Mass our Lord is immolated" [i.e., killed as a sacrifice]. According to Rome, "in it [the Mass] Christ perpetuates in an unbloody manner the sacrifice offered on the cross, offering Himself to the Father for the world's salvation through the ministry of the priests" (Vat. II, Euch. Myst. Intro. C).

Against all this the Bible says, "This man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God" (Hebrews 10:12). Jesus exclaimed on the cross, "It is finished" (John 19:30), the meaning of which is fully explained in Hebrews 9:24-26: "[Christ is entered] into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: nor yet that he should offer himself often ... for then must he often have suffered ... but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."

Rome's gospel is a blasphemous denial of Christ's atonement.



News Item5/26/05 12:33 AM
The Bible says, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isaiah 8:20). The reason for this is simple -- only in Scripture do we have God's inspired, authoritative Word: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works" (II Timothy 3:16). To be adequately equipped, we need nothing more than Scripture.

Paul's warning is much to the point: "Beware lest any man spoil you... after the tradition of men" (Colossians 2:8).

Does Billy Graham preach Rome's gospel, as he claimed?

2. Rome's gospel denies the once-for-all atoning sacrifice of Christ.



News Item5/26/05 12:31 AM

Speaking at the Roman Catholic Belmont Abbey College, Noth Carolina, Dr. Graham said: "The gospel that built this school and the gospel that brings me here tonight is still the way to salvation" (Gastonia Gazette, November 22, 1967). That is plain enough. The then executive vice-president of Belmont Abbey College, Rev. Cuthbert E. Allen, agreed. He wrote, "I have followed Billy Graham's career and I must emphasize that he has been more Catholic than otherwise... Billy Graham is preaching a moral and evangelical theology most acceptable to Catholics." (Personal letter, reproduced in Billy Graham and the Church of Rome, by I.R.K. Paisley, Appendix. Document No.3).

The question is: What is the gospel according to the church of Rome?

1. Rome's gospel denies the full and final authority of Scripture.

The Second Vatican Council flatly decreed: "The Church does not draw her certainty about all revealed truth from the Holy Scriptures alone. Hence both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honored with equal feelings of devotion and reverence." (Vatican II. Dei Veruum II.9).

The following link was sent to me today. It's about Pope John Paul II and Billy Graham. The betrayal of Mr. Graham is not what our Lord Jesus would have supported, but condemned.
Chill, Ed and Got Ed's Back as well as others, you are wrong. Someday you will find out.

Interesting that Jesus said to the Pharisees,

Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Yet this fellow claims that all the Pharisees shall be in heaven?

If you love someone you tell them the truth, not false doctrine!

Pro 11:9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
