NEWSWEEK COVER: Billy Graham in Twilight
Evangelist Rev. Billy Graham on His View of The Bible: 'I'm Not a Literalist in The Sense That Every Single Jot and Tittle is From The Lord. This is a Little Difference in My Thinking Through The Years'

On Whether Heaven Will be Open to All Good People: 'It Would be Foolish for Me to Speculate on Who Will be There ... I Believe The Love of God is Absolute. He Said He Gave His Son For The Whole World, and I Think He Loves Everybody Regardless of What Label They Have.'

James 3:2 "For in many things we offend all..."

Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary:
James 3:2
'- all--The Greek implies "all without exception": even the apostles.'

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary:
James 3:1-12
"...No man can tame the tongue without Divine grace and assistance. The apostle does not represent it as impossible, but as extremely difficult...That man's tongue confutes itself, which at one time pretends to adore the perfections of God, and to refer all things to him; and at another time condemns even good men..."

Billy Graham is no different than Mother Theresa and Rick Warren - one worlder, popular people who claim to be Christians but whose profession does not match what the Bible teaches is necessary for salvation. If they had held to those beliefs, they wouldn't have or wouldn't now be going around saying the junk they say and promoting the ideas they do. Godly people are not popular with the world!

A little late,but I was off in Revival.
Let me get in my two cents worth.Mr. Graham,when asked whether "good Jews, Muslims,Buddhists,Hindus,or secular people..."would go to Heaven,he replied,"Those are decisions only the Lord will make..." Well,He has already decided Jesus said(John 3:16,18)"For God so loved the world,that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."Whosoever believeth in him"seems plain enough in defining who has everlasting life "He that believeth on him is not condemned:but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."Clear enough yet? John the Baptist also has a clear statement:"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;but the wrath of God abideth on him." Still confused? Have you not been born again?Jesus said you must be in order to "see the kingdom of God."(John 3:3,5,7)One more:"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."1Corinthians2:14
This should be enough for the honest.

News Item8/15/06 9:39 PM
Yes, Mark, we're sad....especially when yet another evangelist in the spotlight succumbs to peer pressure and then spreads a liberal Mr. Graham is now doing. It is sad. I don't intend to open my mind, but instead continue to be narrow minded: people will be in hell for eternity if they reject the gospel..all of them...forever.

You people are so sad. I hope that as you get closer to the end of your path in this world your mind opens up half as much a Mr. Grahams has. In the meantime I hold your judgement that yoiu place upon everyone as an example of why people have been killing each other over religion. As one of my famous teachers said be spirited not spiritual.

May we proclaim with the Apostle Paul: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, 'The just shall live by faith." (Romans 1:16-17) And beloved, who is the object of our faith right now? None other that Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, our Lord and Saviour! The late, great Francis Schaeffer, back in 1966 warned that "Evangelism which does not lead to purity of life and purity of doctrine is just as faulty and incomplete as an orthodoxy which does not lead to a concern for, and communication with, the lost." In Schaeffer's book, The Great Evangelical Disaster, he states: "What is the use of evangelicalism seeming to get larger and larger if sufficient numbers of those under the name evangelical no longer hold to that which makes evangelicalism evangelical?" I'm afraid that Dr. Grahm lost his way over 50 years ago. And sadly, many others are following in his footsteps making the same mistakes as Graham (can you say Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Bill Hybels). Holy Father, may we repent of our sins, and may you forgive us and restore us!

Graham is well know to have men sitting on his platforms during his crusades who don't even believe in the deity of Christ nor in the inerrancy of Scripture! And to state that well-meaning Buddhists, Hindus, Mormons, JWs, Catholics, cave dwellers, etc. will get into heaven because they haven't heard the gospel yet is ludicrous and a result of the false teaching of this "wider mercy" of God. "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be know of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things." (Romans 1:18-23)

Don't be shocked by these statements by Graham. He has been spouting these faulty beliefs for decades. He even appeared on Robert Schuller's Crystal Cathedral several years ago telling him that "there was a wider mercy to God's love." An excellent boook to read to show just how liberal Graham is in his beliefs is Ian Murray's "Evangelicalism Divided", which gives a detailed description of the liberalism displayed by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association and how it has adversely affected both American evangelicalism and also the Anglican faith in England as well. Murray's book covers the years 1950-2000 and is a must read. How would Dr. Graham handle 1 Corinthians 15:1-5: "Moreover, brethern, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you--unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve."

Daniel, you are quite correct. Tim, you just gave a good example of why Billy Graham doesn't know what he is talking about. It is a good example of another area that he is completely wrong.

And of course, about Israel,

and to easily find three sermons about Israel,

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 This stranglehold has got to be broken or the countrys going down the drain You believe that Nixon says after the stranglehold comment Yes sir Thats right says Graham prompting Nixon to claim that Life magazine Newsweek The New York Times the Los Angeles Times and others, are totally dominated by the Jews their writers are 95 percent Jewish Nixon demurs that this does not mean that all the Jews are bad but that most are left-wing radicals who want peace at any price except where support for Israel is concerned. The best Jews are actually the Israeli Jews That's right agrees Graham, who later concurs with a Nixon assertion that a powerful bloc of Jews confronts Nixon in the media. And they're the ones putting out the pornographic stuff Graham Jews swarm around me and are friendly to me They don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country Nixon says You must not let them know Graham then leaves and a few minutes later Nixon tells Haldeman You know it was good we got this point about the Jews across It's a shocking point says Haldeman says Nixon it's also the Jews are irreligious atheistic and immoral

Bob V, you're onto something there. It is something we all must be careful of, Peter being another example of this fleshly tendency.

News Item8/8/06 10:54 AM
Since Billy believes there is salvation outside of Christ, he therefore denies that Jesus is the Lord and obviously does not have the Holy Ghost. Can't be a Christian without the Holy Spirit!

1 Corinthians 12:3 ...and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Billy Graham's greatest gift is his greatest liability: he has an incredible ability to communicate effectively with people, almost intuitively knowing how to word things so as to appear to fit in with their views on things and avoid unnecessary offense.

Within certain limits, if he is talking with a Fundamentalist, he can sound like a Fundamentalist; if he is talking with a theological Liberal, he can sound like a Liberal -- or at least blunt the sharp edges of what he really believes.

This ability has gotten him in trouble in the past, like the time he was recorded spouting anti-Jewish sentiments in the White House :

". . . a lot of the Jews are great friends of mine. They swarm around me and are friendly to me. Because they know I am friendly to Israel and so forth. They don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country."

"This stranglehold has got to be broken or the country's going down the drain"

"And they're the ones putting out the pornographic stuff . . ."

". . . if you get elected a second time, then we might be able to do something . . ."

2 Pet 1:20 "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation." This is not our word it is God's, and he meant what He said. Perhaps Bro. Graham has been listening to the voice of 'reason' for to long, thus muddying his Ear for the Word of God?

There is also the fact that Graham is quite old. A little bit of the senility creeps in, and you are not so sure of yourself. I think it is dangerous for a Christian preacher to start passing out equal rights to other religions, when the Bible says Christ is the only way to Heaven. However, I agree with Graham when he refuses to comment on who will and will not ultimately be in heaven. I believe all people will get a chance to hear the gospel (including those that died before Christ), and will get fair treatment by the ultimate judge. The thousand year reign of Christ, where He rules and we teach is a good spot for this to happen. The Bible teaches that even the condemned will agree that their judgment is just.To put it another way, I don't think God is allowing masses of aborigines (and others) to be born, just to go to Hell. God alone knows a persons heart, and He is the only one to decide a persons eternal state. I think He does a good job, and I'm glad that I'm not in the position

News Item8/7/06 11:54 PM
I think Mr. Graham has succumbed to intense peer pressure. I don't know what else would cause such a preacher to have such a diluted understanding of the Scriptures as literal truth(and the only truth) and the narrow way of salvation only through Christ.

2Kings 22:13
Go ye, inquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.
14So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college and they communed with her.
15And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,
16Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:
17Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.
Mathew 1:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

God bless!

I have found the "39 articles" online, much is same confessions of faith that are practised during the service. They actually call the church Episcopalian, it is situated on a graveyard; which gives you a sobering feeling when heading to Church. I joked with an elderly friend recently, that if the resurrection happened while we were at Church, we would be in for quite the display

Our Pastor is a very lively fellow in his eighties, a man who is firm but kind when reproving persons from sinful behaviours.


News Item8/7/06 9:44 PM
The 39 Articles comprise the historic confession of faith of the Anglican Church. However, it's not adhered to very faithfully by many Anglican congregations today.
