Billy Graham's New Thinking on Salvation
This week Newsweek online is featuring a long article on Billy Graham and his "new thinking". So why was it that Billy Graham couldn't give a biblical response when asked whether he believes that heaven will be closed to those of other religions? He says he doesn't "want to speculate about all that..." Why speculate, Dr. Graham, when you have the whole counsel of God in your hands? Is the man a universalist? Based on his comments on Dr. Schuller's program several years ago, I am incined to say yes. If God loves everyone "regardless of what label they have" than why travel the globe preaching about Christ as the way to salvation? Why preach at all? Why spend your life trying to get people to make "decisions" for Christ if heaven is open to the Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Wiccans and everyone else? What a confused mess this man's theology is. At one point in the article, Dr. Graham laments the fact that he never went to seminary. You don't need to go toseminary to believe what the Lord Jesus Christ said when he stated, "narrow is the way, and few there be that find it." or "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me." For years, the Graham Association, when contacted about the outright heretical statements Graham has made, has made excuses for its founder, due to his age and his infirmity. If he is so infirm that he cannot rightly divide the word of truth, his handlers need to send the media away and refuse interviews. Graham's spiritual confusion is doing no service to the Kingdom of God. Here's a quote from Newsweek.
"A unifying theme of Graham's new thinking is humility. He is sure and certain of his faith in Jesus as the way to salvation. When asked whether he believes heaven will be closed to good Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus or secular people, though, Graham says: "Those are decisions only the Lord will make. It would be foolish for me to speculate on who will be there and who won't ... I don't want to speculate about all that. 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." Such an ecumenical spirit may upset some Christian hard-liners, but in Graham's view, only God knows who is going to be saved: "As an evangelist for more than six decades, Mr. Graham has faithfully proclaimed the Bible's Gospel message that Jesus is the only way to Heaven," says Graham spokesman A. Larry Ross. "However, salvation is the work of Almighty God, and only he knows what is in each human heart."
Note how a Graham spokesman was contacted after the reporter heard Graham say that about other religions entering heaven. It surprised even the reporter. Mr. Ross knows perfectly well that Dr. Graham wasn't referring just to God knowing those who are saved. Dr. Graham was referring to those of other religions who, as he put it on Schuller's show are operating according to the light they have and are thus, saved. But Mr. Ross's job is to re-interpret Dr. Graham for the donating public so that those who aren't paying attention won't notice that Mr. Graham believes that good Hindus will be in heaven to worship the Lamb. Read this transcript from the interview between Dr. Graham and Robert Schuller on the Hour of Power, back on May 31, 1997.
NEWS BRIEF: "Graham Believes Men Can Be Saved Apart From Name Of Christ", by Robert E. Kofahl, Ph.D., television interview of Billy Graham by Robert Schuller, on May 31, 1997. The following segment is an exact transcript of an excerpt close to the end of the broadcast. Reported by The Christian News, October 20, 1997, page 15.
"SCHULLER: Tell me, what do you think is the future of Christianity?
GRAHAM: Well, Christianity and being a true believer -- you know, I think there's the Body of Christ. This comes from all the Christian groups around the world, outside the Christian groups. I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ ... I think James answered that, the Apostle James in the first council in Jerusalem, when he said that God's purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name. And that's what God is doing today, He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ, because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven."
"SCHULLER: What, what I hear you saying, that it's possible for Jesus Christ to come into human hearts and soul and life, even if they've been born in darkness and have never had exposure to the Bible. Is that a correct interpretation of what you're saying?
GRAHAM: Yes, it is, because I believe that. I've met people in various parts of the world in tribal situations, that they have never seen a Bible or heard about a Bible, and never heard of Jesus, but they've believed in their hearts that there was a God, and they've tried to live a life that was quite apart from the surrounding community in which they lived."
"SCHULLER: [R.S. trips over his tongue for a moment, his face beaming, then says] I'm so thrilled to hear you say this. There's a wideness in God's mercy.
GRAHAM: There is. There definitely is." (Newsweek, August 14, 2006)
Hell Is No Longer In -- Thanks In Part To Billy Graham
Very few pastors in America mention Hell, much less preach on it because it is not "sexy enough anymore" and "it's just too negative."
Even though 71% of adults in America believe in a literal Hell, virtually no pastor preaches on it. The mega-churches ignore the subject of Hell bcause they want to appeal to people, not scare them away. Most churches have deopped the judgment to come and focus on social issues. "You can go to a whole lot of churches week after week, and you'd be startled even to hear a mention of Hell," explained professor Harvey Cox Jr. of Harvard Divinity School. [Ed. note: This is true. In the 50 years I have attended numerous churches and listened to radio/TV preachers/teachers I have NEVER heard a pastor teach on Hell! It is the most ignored subject in the Bible. I have heard a few mention it briefly.]
The rise of psychology, philosophy and consumerism have drowned out Hell. "It's just too negative," commented Prof. Bruce Shelley of Denver Theological Seminary. "Churches are under enormous pressure to be consumer-oriented. Churches today feel the need to be appealing rather than demanding." [Ed. note: Most preachers are apostate or not born from above.]
Instead of preaching the Bible churches pay for market research to find what the people want out of them. "Once pop evangelism went into market analysis, Hell was dropped," said Prof. Martin Marty of the University of Chicago Divinity School. [Ed. note: Preachers who teach what the flock want to hear are apostate (2 Tim. 4.3,4).]
Even though some pastors claim they believe in Hell and teach it, few do. Rick Warren, senior pastor of the megachurch Saddleback Community Church in Lake Forest, California, claims the Bible's teaching on Hell guide his ministry. Yet if you check out his website -- http://www.pastors.com -- he does NOT offer a single sermon, tape, video, book, pamphlet or study on Hell. [Ed. note: Rick Warren is one of the leading apostates in America today along with Jack Hybels, Bob Schuller, Paul Crouch, Ken Copeland, Ken Hagin, Jimmy Swaggart, Jerry Falwell, Hal Lindsey, John Hagee, R.C. Sproul, Chuck Swindoll, Chuck Smith, Chuck Missler, Jack van Wimpe, Tim LaHaye, Bob Thieme, Pat Robertson, Greg Laurie, Grant Jeffrey, Yaacov Ramsel, Tom Ice, Peter LaLonde, Billy and Frankie Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, Robert Morey, Hendrick Hanegraaff, Rex Humbard, Oral and Richard Roberts, Ernest Angley, Peter Popoff, Jesse Duplantis, Creflo Dollar, T.D. Jakes, Ike, Garner Ted Armstrong, Doug Batchelor and thousands of others. For a list of dozens of heretics/apostates go to dov-10danger.htm]
The "born again" pastors rarely preach on Hell because their flock is not going there. "When you have a group of people who are born again you're not going to Hell," explained Bob Anderson, member of an evangelical church in Fullerton. "So why talk about it?" [Ed. note: The church is most likely the Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton that was formerly pastor by Chuck Swindol, current figurehead of Dallas Theological Seminary. I attended that 501c3 apostate corporation for a time in the 1980s. It was a disaster.]
The Presbyterian Church (USA) mentions Hell just once in its catechism. George Hunsinger, Prof. at Princeton's Theological Seminary, wanted more said about Hell and judgment, but the committee rejected the idea with little discussion. "It's a failure of nerve by churches that are not wanting to take on a non-popular stance," he said. [Ed. note: Most Presbyterian preachers have been apostate for decades.]
There was a time when Hell was considered to be a literal place, but now it is thought to be a mere state of the soul. John Paul II affirmed this belief in 1999 when he stated that Hell should not be viewed as a fiery underworld, but as "the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God."
John's statement was not new for the Roman Catholic Corporation. In the 1960s it abandoned the belief that Hell is a real, physical place where the wicked are punished/tortured for their sins. Dante fell out of grace with Vatican II. [Ed. note: Virtually all religious corporations will deny Hell and the LOF in the years to come. It is inevitable.]
The Catholic catechism of the 19th Century emphasized a literal Hell, but the latest catechism (1994) plays down a literal Hell and pushes the idea that it is separation from God.
Hell took a dive when Billy Graham said he did not know for certain if there is any fire in Hell. Billy was a dynamic hell-fire preacher in his early days of the 1940s and 50s, but he dropped the fire and now claims Hell is merely separation from God.
"I believe that Hell is essentially separation from God," he said. "That we are separated from God, so we can have hell in this life and hell in the life to come..." Billy said in a 1991 interview. "But to describe Hell in vivid terms like I might have done 30 or 40 years ago, I'm not at liberty to do that because... whether there is actually fire in Hell or not, I do not know." [Ed. note: Incredible! That is pure mumble jumble and sheer jibberish. Billy preached the Bible at one time, but he slowly slid down the sewer to total apostasy and hit the cesspool at the bottom in 1991. He is an embarrasment to Messianic Faith and one of the leading ecumenical apostates in America. A few of the thousands of ecumenical apostates who have abandon the Bible for doctrines of demons and the traditions of men as Graham has are -- Robert Schuller, Paul Crouch, Jerry Falldown, Jack van Wimpe, Hal Lindsey, Rick Warren and Bill McCarthy, founder of Promise Keepers. McCarthy should have stayed at Colorado State.]
Belief in Hell is ancient. The Hebrews called it Sheol and the Greeks called it Hades. Jesus Christ taught that it is a terrible place to end up in. He described it as the "outer darkness" and consumed by an "everlasting fire." In the book of Revelation sinners are warned that they would be "thrown into the Lake of Fire." Matthew said that it would be a place where of "weeping and gnashing of teeth." [Ed. note: The description of Hell and the Lake of Fire was more precise by the New Testament writers. the fate of the wicked was seen as being eternal punishment (Leviy-Matt. 25.46; Rev. 14.9-11) rather than being annihilated out of existence. The doctrine that the wicked are burned up and exterminated/annihilated in the Lake of Fire is NOT Biblical! It is a damnable HERESY -- a doctrine of demons (I Tim. 4.1)!
I should note that the Lake of Fire is NOT a place of "outer darkness" -- it is located in a place of "outer darkness" (Leviy 8.12; 22.13; 25.30). The definite article "the" makes this clear. The argument that the descriptions of Hell and the LOF are NOT real, but allegorical is based on a faulty understanding of the phrase "the outer darkness." The heretics claim you cannot have light from fire and total darkness at the same time. The Bible does NOT teach this. It teaches that the LOF is located in a place called "outer darkness." It does NOT say that in that place there is total darkness. For a complete exegetical study on Hell and the LOF go to -- dov-hell.htm ]
Dante popularized the doctrine of eternal punishment, but invented a hell of his own [that has nothing to do with the Bible.]
During the Age of Enlightenment the concept of Hell was questioned and the philosophers argued that a merciful God would not punish the wicked through all eternity. [Ed. note: Dante's work on his hell was by inspiration of a fallen angel. He made Hell seem ludicrous.]
Many preachers today believe that God would not punish the wicked forever. "How can something as wonderful as redemption... be based on fear?" asked Wilfredo Benitez of St. Anslem of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Garden Grove. "Can we accept a gift at gunpoint? This is total nonsense and madness." Wilfredo taught a literal Hell in his younger years. [Ed. note: A large number of preachers deny the existence of Hell and the LOF in their twilight years.]
The preacher who did more to annihilate Hell is Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. "Perhaps more than any other pastor, the Rev. Robert H. Schuller is credited with inspiring the movement to supplant hell with feel-good messages," noted the author of the article. He credits Schuller as being the "forerunner of the thousands of nondenominational congregations that have popped up in recent decades to serve believers uncomfortable with the formality of old-line faiths."
Schuller believes Hell is eternal separation from God and not a real place where the wicked are punished for their sins. He stopped preaching on Hell 40 years ago and started praching on personal success. One of his self-help books is titled, "If It's Going to Be, It's Up to Me!" [Ed. note: The Bible clearly teaches we are to rely on YAHWEH Elohim in ALL that we do (Prov. 3.5,6) and that it is preferable to trust in YAHWEH rather than in ourselves or others (Ps. 118.8,9).
"I don't ever want people to become Christian to escape Hell," he declared. [Ed. note: I am convinced that Schuller is NOT born from above! He shows NO evidence of being saved! He teaches myriad heresies, he is a leading ecumenicalist, a moneymonger, glorymonger and a hypocrite. A few years ago he assaulted a flight attendant while under the influence of alcohol. He is one of thousands of apostate and unsaved preachers that Paulos warned us about (2 Tim. 4.3,4)!]
One preacher who believes Hell is a real place is Ray Comfort. He warns preachers to not sugarcoat the Bible. "God will remove His Spirit, His power from them and they'll become just like social clubs," he said. "What we've done is make things comfortable for people with padded pews and air-conditioning and a promise that we won't say anything that will offend you." (L.A. Times, 6.19.2002, p. 1)
America needs about 1,000 preachers who are willing to teach the Bible using the ONLY hermeneutical principle YAHWEH Elohim has given us:
"Take everything literally unless the Scriptures say it is symbolic or unless it is physically impossible to be or to take place, with the exceptions of miracles."
Bible teachers who use this principle teach that Hell and the LOF are real places with real fire where the wicked are tortured through ALL eternity.
Billy Graham apologized Friday for a 1972 conversation with former President Nixon in which he said the Jewish "stranglehold" of the media was ruining the country and must be broken.
The conversation was among 500 hours of Nixon tapes released by the National Archives. Most were recorded between January and June 1972. "Although I have no memory of the occasion, I deeply regret comments I apparently made in an Oval Office conversation with President Nixon ... some 30 years ago," Graham said in a statement released by his Texas public relations firm. "They do not reflect my views and I sincerely apologize for any offense caused by the remarks." [Ed. note: Graham is an apostate spiritual wimp. He obviously understood that the edomites (jews) control the media in America and that they were destroying the country. If he had any courage he would not have apologized. I can't expect an apostate, millionaire televangelist to stand for truth, especially at his age.]
In the conversation with Nixon, the Southern Baptist evangelist expressed disdain for what he saw as Jewish domination of the media. "This stranglehold has got to be broken or this country's going down the drain," Graham said, agreeing with Nixon's own comments earlier in the conversation.
"You believe that?" Nixon says in response.
"Yes, sir," says Graham.
"Oh boy. So do I," Nixon said. "I can't ever say that but I believe it." [Ed. note: I should note that Tricky Dick hated the edomites as virtually all White House squatters have. The only WH squatters of the 20th Century I know that did not hate them were Frankie Roosevelt and Sicko Willie Klintoon. Yet Hitlery hated them and still does.]
"No, but if you get elected a second time, then we might be able to do something," Graham says, reassuring the president. [Ed. note: If Graham did not mean what he said he was patronizing Tricky Dick. That is a worse sin than accusing the edomites of controlling the media. Either way Graham showed he has NO credibility and NEVER has! He is part of the apostasy of the last days (2 Thes. 2.3; 2 Tim. 4.3,4)! I should note that America has nearly been destroyed by liberalism. Whether you believe the edomites are the cause doesn't matter. Whoever has a stranglehold over the media has succeeded in destroying America!]
Friday, Graham said his legacy has been one of working for stronger bonds between Jews and Christians. "Throughout my ministry, I have sought to build bridges between Jews and Christians," Graham said. "I will continue to strongly support all future efforts to advance understanding and mutual respect between our communities." [Ed. note: Graham has deepened the hole of apostasy that he has crawled into with this admission! True believers in YAHSHUA should NOT be working to "build bridges" with edomites (jews) or any group that openly blasphemes YAHSHUA! We should share the Gospel with them in love and if they do not listen we are to shake the dust off of our feet and move on! Graham is a dedicated ecumenicalist who wants to unite all religions of the world. That is what the top bosses in the Roman Catholic Corporation want!]
Graham, 83, has been in frail health for years. The friendship between Graham and the president began during the Eisenhower administration, when Nixon was vice president.
At a later point in the conversation, when Nixon raises the subject of Jewish influence in Hollywood and the media, Graham says, "A lot of Jews are great friends of mine." "They swarm around me and are friendly to me. Because they know that I am friendly to Israel and so forth. But they don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country, and I have no power and no way to handle them," Graham says.
"You must not let them know," Nixon said.

I do not see how anyone can read that last comment by Graham and not realize that he believed the edomites (jews) control the media and Hollyweird and wished he could break their stranglehold over America. It is too bad that Graham doesn't have the guts to stand up to the politically retarded crowd and speak the truth about the edomites.
Graham Apologizes to the Jews Again
Billy Graham is again apologizing for a 1972 conversation with former President Nixon in which he said a Jewish "stranglehold" of the media was ruining the country.
"I don't ever recall having those feelings about any group, especially the Jews, and I certainly do not have them now," Graham said in a statement issued Saturday. "I humbly ask the Jewish community to reflect on my actions on behalf of Jews over the years that contradict my words in the Oval Office that day." [Ed. note: What an embarrassment to YAHWEH Elohim! Billy disliked the Edomites then and he still does, but since they are virtually all powerful in this world he is bowing down to them. Shame, Billy!]
The conversation was included on 500 hours of Nixon White House tapes released by the National Archives in late February. Most were recorded in 1972. In the conversation with Nixon, the Southern Baptist evangelist expressed disdain for what he saw as Jewish domination of the media. "This stranglehold has got to be broken or this country's going down the drain," Graham said, agreeing with Nixon's own comments earlier in the conversation. [Ed. note: At least Billy understood the power of the Edomites and realized they were working to destroy American culture and the nation. His prophecy will not come true because YAHSHUA will return in just the nick of time to slaughter every Edomite (Jew) on the planet and save America (Yisrael). For details about the fate of the Edomites study 2 Yahshua-Is. 63.1-6.]
Graham, 83, initially apologized in a brief statement issued March 1, shortly after the tapes were released. In a two-page statement issued Saturday by the Minneapolis-based Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, he said he had held many conversations with Nixon on many topics. "However, I cannot imagine what caused me to make those comments, which I totally repudiate. Whatever the reason, I was wrong for not disagreeing with the president, and I sincerely apologize to anyone I have offended," he said. [Ed. note: What a spiritual WIMP! What a pitiful excuse for a true believer!]

Billy is an apostate who has done more harm than good for YAHWEH Elohim. When he started his un-Biblical career he was solid, but the pressures of the world caused him to go apostate and to bow to the Edomites and also to the ecumenicalists. How sad!

Billy Graham Says Pets Go To Heaven
Author Richard O'Connor says famed evangelist Billy Graham agrees
with him that pets go to heaven.
"When asked if animals go to heaven, Graham replied, `I think God will have prepared everything for our perfect happiness' in heaven. If it takes my dog being there, I believe he'll be there.' If Billy Graham believes our pets go to heaven, that's good enough for me."
Pets aren't "just animals," said O'Connor, author of "In Memory of a Special Dog" and "In Memory of a Special Cat." "And anyone who thinks they are has never owned an animal. Many pet owners are absolutely devastated when their pet dies. People really need to know that their pets survive death -- and they do. Their pets go to heaven and they will see them again."
The idea that an animal's spirit survives beyond death isn't new. Egyptians worshiped cats as gods and their bodies were mummified for the afterlife. O'Connor says Francis of Assisi believed pets survive death and are rewarded by God.
Illustrious writer and veterinarian James Herriot of "All Creatures Great and Small" fame also believed pets go to heaven. Once, an elderly woman admitted she was afraid she'd never see her dogs and cats again. "I'm absolutely certain of one thing. Wherever you are going, they are going too," he told her. (National Enquirer, 10-16-1998, www)
Dick could be fibbing, but if Billy actually said pets go to Heaven when they die he is either senile or he said it to make people feel good. Either way he needs to shut his mouth. If he is senile he has no business speaking and if he says idiotic things like this he needs to shut up. He is doing exactly what YAHWEH said preachers would do in the apostasy of the last days -- tickle the ears of backslidden believers (2 Tim. 4.3,4).
It must be remembered that Billy Graham did not become a superstar televangelist because he was blessed by YAHWEH. He became a superstar because he was blessed by the devil. When Billy started holding his tent revival meetings in Los Angeles just after World War II he received help from Randolph Hearst. Hearst told his editors to "puff Graham" which meant to give him favorable coverage. He made Graham a superstar through his newspapers. Soon other powerful men backed Graham and Billy preached what the backsliders and apostates wanted to hear. He told them that the Roman Catholic Church was a true church and that Catholics who got saved at his rallies should go back to their churches. He preached ecumenicalism hard and heavy and had men from numerous denominations and religions on stage with him. He became a powerful force in the satanic ecumenical movement.
Charles Templeton & Billy Graham
Charles Templeton, who preached along side Billy Graham denounced his faith in
During the 1940s and 1950s he was the director of the National Council of Churches and shared the pulpit with Billy Graham. In 1956 he decided his faith was based on a lie and renounced his belief in the resurrection of Jesus. He wrote about his change of mind in "Giving Up God." (Plains Baptist Challenger, July 1998, p. 8 - http://www.llano.net/baptist)
Chuck most likely was not born from above. The fact that he had anything to do with the NCC shows he was not a mature believer if he was saved.
The fact that Graham preached along side Chuck shows that Billy had poor discernment. He should have had nothing to do with a high ranking bureaucrat of the NCC. It shows that Billy did not have the courage to stand for the truth and oppose wolves in sheep's clothing.
Billy is a poor excuse for a believer much less for an evangelist. The fact that he is touted as being one of the greatest evangelist of the 20th Century proves we are living in the apostasy of the last days. He is a backslidden, apostate wreck who should have been sunk decades ago. He prospered with the help of the devil and has done a great deal to usher in
the devil's New World Nightmare. Judgment day for Billy will be extremely painful if he is saved (I Kor. 3.15) and a nightmare if he isn't saved (Apok-Rev. 20.11-15).
Graham Agrees with Rome on Salvation of Unreached
In a May 31, 1997 interview with ecumenical TV evangelist Robert Schuller, Billy
Graham affirmed his agreement with the Roman Catholic position on salvation of those who
have never heard the gospel.
Graham responding to Schuller's question about the future of Christianity, said "God's purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name. And that's what God is doing today, He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world or the non-believing world. They are members of the Body of Christ because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven." [Ed. note: That is called heresy and everyone who teaches that heresy is apostate! Everyone is saved by believing in thee Lord King Mashiyach YAHSHUA IMMANUEL YAHWEH of Nazareth, by whatever name He is called in their language (Acts 4.10-12).]
This statement directly agrees with the Roman Catholic universal catechism, page 224: para. 847: "Those who, through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know it through the dictates of their conscience, those too may achieve eternal salvation." [Ed. note: This is heresy! If the RCC truly believes this they would not evangelize people.]
Thus Roman Catholicism has said that if you never hear about Christ you can be saved by being the best person you can. This directly contradicts Acts 4:12 which says, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Jesus, Himself left no doubt: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6.)
In part, Graham has also bought into the other false Roman road. Graham and his son, Franklin, are scheduling a "Festival '98" crusade in Albuquerque, New Mexico in early May. The Albuquerque Journal reports that Baptist pastor Alan Hawkins is "excited beyond words" to have Billy Graham there. The Journal also reports that "Representatives from the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, which serves more than 260,000 Catholics, is participating in the festival." This means that many of the counselors used to follow up on those who come forward in the meetings will be Roman Catholic. Their counsel will not be according to biblical salvation by faith alone. It will be a false salvation on the installment plan dispensed by the "Church." [Ed. note: Graham has been using counselors from the RCC for decades.]
How sad that many of the Catholic people who respond to the simple gospel that Graham preaches will be met by a counselor that will tell them that what they are feeling is a desire for a renewal to Mother Church. Just don't miss mass and do good works ... you will be fine. [Ed. note: It is very sad! Billy Graham will have a great deal to answer for come judgment day!]

Bill Graham has been apostate for decades. He started out on the right path, but was steered onto the path to apostasy soon after he began his tent revival meetings in the late 1940s. By the end of the 1950s he was apostate.
