Watch And Listen As Billy Graham In His Own Words Shows Steady Slide Into Laodicean Apostasy • Now The End Begins

If Billy Graham would have been preaching the true gospel of the grace of God, Paul’s gospel for the Church Age, he would not have doubted if Hell was a real place or not. He would have looked at his friend, Pope John Paul II, as a lost sinner in need of a Saviour, and pleaded with him to become born again. But there is no record of any kind that he ever spoke those words to the pope.

If Billy Graham would have been preaching the true gospel of the grace of God, Paul’s gospel for the Church Age, he would not have doubted if Hell was a real place or not

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3a (KJV)

Christians get mad when you point out that evangelist Billy Graham was really a wolf in sheep’s clothing who spent more than half of his ministry defending and promoting the Pope, and sending the “converts” from his rallies to Catholic churches.

Did you know that Billy Graham believed and taught that you could be saved and not know it? That the Body of Christ will include non-Christians from other religions as well as pagans? How about the time he told Larry King on CNN that he feels absolutely comfortable worshipping in a Mormon church? Now before you go and stroke out over what I’m telling you, take a moment to watch the video below and hear all of that and more from Billy’s own lips, at a time when he was still well in possession of all his mental faculties.

Billy Graham in his own words:

So…you don’t believe that Billy Graham said these things? Then click on this video and watch for yourself. Don’t have the guts to watch it? Then don’t leave a comment.

Here are some more notable and heretical statements from the “world’s greatest evangelist:

  • Billy Denies A Literal, Fiery Hell: “…I think people have a hard time believing God is going to allow people to burn in literal fire forever. I think the fire that is mentioned in the Bible is a burning thirst for God that can never be quenched.” The Orlando Sentinel for April 10, 1983
  • Billy Agrees With Infant Baptism: “I do believe that something happens at the baptism of an infant… we cannot fully understand the mysteries of God, but I believe that a miracle can happen in these children so that they are regenerated, that is, MADE CHRISTIAN, THROUGH INFANT BAPTISM.” Interview with the Lutheran Standard in October 1967
  • Billy On His Love For The Vatican: “When I was at the Vatican I spoke at a vesper service at the North American College, which is a seminary for students from North America. I understand I was the first Protestant to speak there. It was a very inspirational and Christocentric service, with much contemporary music.” Christianity Today 1981
  • Billy Identifies More As A Catholic Than Protestant: “I find myself closer to Catholics than the radical Protestants. I think the Roman Catholic Church today is going through a second Reformation” Philadelphia Evening Bulletin 24 May, 1966
  • Billy Says Pope John Paul II His Spiritual Leader: “I think the American people are looking for a leader, a moral and spiritual leader that believes something. And the Pope does. … Thank God, I’ve got somebody to quote now with some real authority.” Phil Donahue Show October 11, 1979
  • Billy Promotes Islam: “I think Islam is misunderstood, too, because Mohammed had a great respect for Jesus. He called Jesus the greatest of the prophets except himself…Islam is much more like Christianity than we think we are”. See video interview above

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:14-16 (KJV)

Please note that all these quotes were uttered 1983 or earlier, at a time when Graham was still good health, physically strong and mentally aware. I gave you 5 random quotes, but easily could have given you 50 more, 100 more, showing his lukewarm, Laodicean theology and manner of compromising preaching. People will get mad and write to me with statements like “How DARE you speak against Billy Graham?? I got SAVED at one of his rallies”. So? You can find a ten dollar bill on the sidewalk without thinking it’s a bank, right? If you found a diamond ring in a trash dumpster, would you call it a jewelry store? No, you would not. Can people get saved with lukewarm preaching? Yes, they can. But without the true gospel, undiluted and powerful, it is nearly impossible for them to grow in a walk with the Lord.

The following is from a transcript of an appearance by Billy Graham on Robert Schuller’s “Hour of Power,” program #1426 entitled Say “Yes” To Possibility Thinking, which was originally broadcast May 31, 1997:

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. And I don’t think that we’re going to see a great sweeping revival, that will turn the whole world to Christ at any time. 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 that 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: I’m so thrilled to hear you say this. There’s a wideness in God’s mercy.

Graham: There is.

When I got saved in 1991, on my knees alone in my room at midnight with a King James Bible opened to John 3:16, there was no preaching at all. I had no Christians friends, had never set foot in a non-Catholic church, it was just me and the Lord and I got saved. But without biblical preaching I soon found myself following the perverted teachings of another false teacher, Harold Camping, and I didn’t break free from it until I met some Bible believers a few years later who told me the Truth.

If Billy Graham would have been preaching the true gospel of the grace of God, Paul’s gospel for the Church Age, he would not have doubted if Hell was a real place or not. He would have looked at his friend, Pope John Paul II, as a lost sinner in need of a Saviour, and pleaded with him to become born again. But there is no record of any kind that he ever spoke those words to the pope.

Back in 2000, Billy gave an interview where he seemed to have little to no assurance of his salvation. Well, after nearly 50 years of “enjoying” Catholic doctrine and preaching it’s not surprising to me at all. The Vatican teaches that believers “can not know if they are going to heaven when they die”.

Franklin Graham continues his father’s defense and promotion of the Catholic Church:

Franklin Graham, son of the great Catholic compromiser, Billy Graham, wants the Roman Catholic Church to “remain unmovable” on biblical teachings.

“I appreciate the Catholic Church remaining very strong on moral issues through the years, and I pray they will be immovable on teachings of the Bible,” he posted on Facebook recently. source

So there you have it, Franklin wants the Catholic Church to “remain unmovable” on their 1,700 years of false teachings, praying to Mary, the idolatry of the Mass and distortion of Bible doctrine. Well, what can I say? Like father, like son.

Billy Graham was a Freemason:

In a Jan. 2, 2000 Fox News interview, Tony Snow asked Billy Graham: “When you get to Heaven, who’s going to speak first, you or God? Graham replied: “When I get there, I’m sure that Jesus is going to say that he will welcome me. But I think that he’s going to say: ‘Well done, our good and faithful servant.’ Or he may say: ‘You’re in the wrong place’.” SNOW: “You really worry that you may be told you’re in the wrong place? GRAHAM: Yes, because I have not – I’m not a righteous man. People put me up on a pedestal that I don’t belong in my personal life. And they think that I’m better than I am. I’m not the good man that people think I am. Newspapers and magazines and television have made me out to be a saint. I’m not. I’m not a Mother Teresa. And I feel that very much.” source

That doesn’t sound like someone just being humble, that sounds like someone who is unsure of and maybe a little afraid of what will happen when they die. Imagine preaching for well over half a century and have no assurance you’re even saved? Truly heartbreaking. Not just for Billy Graham, but for the millions more he deceived and turned over to the Vatican.

A sad ending for the “world’s greatest evangelist”, don’t you think?

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4 (KJV)

‘Beauty And The Beast’ Director Wants To ‘Rip Pages Out Of The Bible’ As He Defends Gay Character In Remake • Now The End Begins

 

During a 2012 interview with Passport Magazine, Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon said that he wishes he could “rip pages out of the Bible” as soon as he arrives in a hotel room, though, to Condon’s disappointment, there are usually none available.

“And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:27 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Usually when we report on these types of things, we will receive emails from people berating us for saying that Hollywood has a very definite anti-Christian bias and agenda. But as you can see, Hollywood hates Christians, hates the Bible, and will do anything they can to promote the LGBTQP lifestyle as they are now doing in the latest Beauty And The Beast remake. The movie’s director wants to “rip the pages out of the Bible” whenever he checks into a hotel room as he travels. What does that tell you about the agenda of this movie?

“What is first thing you do when you get into a hotel room?” asked Passport Magazine, in a now-archived interview.

Liberal bill empowers gvmt to take kids from Ontario parents who don’t accept gender ideology: legal experts | News | LifeSite

 

 

TORONTO, March 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An Ontario Liberal bill that legal experts warn gives the state greater power to seize children and can be used to enforce gender ideology in the home sailed unopposed through second reading last week.

Eighty-three of Ontario’s 107 MPPs voted unanimously March 9 to send Bill 89 to the Liberal-dominated Standing Committee on Justice Policy.

Parents As First Educators (PAFE) president Tanya Granic Allen says it’s a “shame that not one MPP voted against” the “Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act” at second reading.

“I expect MPPs to stand up to political pressure and to do their job of representing parents who are worried about the government’s infringement in their family life,”she told LifeSiteNews.

Bill 89 repeals and replaces the existing Child and Family Services Act, which governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”

At the same time, Bill 89 deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates that child protection services instead consider only the child’s own “creed.”…

ROME,  March 3, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — “Pope Francis has urged us to have fewer children to make the world more sustainable,” a panelist at a Vatican-run workshop on “how to save the natural world” claimed on Thursday.

This solution to securing the world’s sustainability was presented by botanist and environmentalist Peter Raven during a press conference that concluded the “Biological Extinction” workshop that took place at the Vatican earlier this week.

A Vatican conference this week heard repeated calls for reducing the world’s population…

Bad Religion – Many Christians Endorse Heretical Beliefs Without Realizing It

heresy

By Tom Olago October 25, 2016

Is American Christianity evolving into a faith with more ‘believing unbelievers’ and ‘unbelieving believers’ than simply true believers?

These oxymoron references perhaps best describe both the confusion and apostasy related to the doctrines and practices embraced by many professing Christians in America today.

In a recent article for breakpoint.org, G. Shane Morris decries the apparent lack of understanding of Bible theology by Americans in general. “In knowing both the content of the Bible and the doctrinal foundations of Christianity, we Americans aren’t just at the bottom of our class.

We are, as Ross Douthat argues in his book, “Bad Religion,” a nation of heretics”, Morris stated.

A harsh-sounding statement — but the statistics paint the sorry picture.  A survey of 3,000 people conducted by LifeWay Research and commissioned by Ligonier Ministries found that although Americans still overwhelmingly identify as “Christian,” startling percentages of the nation embrace ancient errors condemned by all major Christian traditions.

Morris notes that these are not minor points of doctrine, but core ideas that define Christianity itself. “The really sad part? Even when we’re denying the Deity of Christ, we can’t keep our story straight.

Americans talking about theology sound about as competent as country singers rapping”, he observed, citing several highlights from the survey.

Seven out of ten respondents in LifeWay’s survey affirmed the doctrine of the Trinity–that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three Persons but one God, and six in ten agreed that Jesus is both human and divine. Their orthodoxy–and consistency–ended there.

The rest of the survey unearthed some beliefs that are shocking to note:

– More than half went on to indicate that Jesus is “the first and greatest being created by God,” a heresy known as Arianism, which the Council of Nicaea condemned in 325 A.D.

– Seventy percent of participants–who ranged across socioeconomic and racial backgrounds–agreed there’s only one true God. Yet sixty-four percent also thought this God accepts the worship of all religions, including those that believe in many gods.

– Two-thirds admitted that everyone sins a little bit, but still insisted that most people are good by nature, which directly contradicts scripture (“All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,” and “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Romans 3:23; Jeremiah 17:9).

– Over half said it’s fair for God to exercise His wrath against sin, but seemed to waffle about which sins deserved wrath (not theirs!). Seventy-four percent said the “smallest sins” don’t warrant eternal damnation, in contrast to Jesus’ half-brother, who when writing at the Holy Spirit’s inspiration taught that even one infraction of God’s law is enough to sink someone.

– A full 60 percent agreed that “everyone eventually goes to Heaven,” but half of those surveyed also checked the box saying that “only those who believe in Jesus will be saved.”

Granted, the average professing Christian may just be wearing a popular tag that makes them feel better about their spiritual side. Evangelicals, however, are known to be more accurate in their interpretations of scripture and more serious in the actual practice of their faith.

As Morris noted, everyone therefore expected them to perform better than most Americans. No one expected them to perform worse. Here are some of the bizarre and contradictory beliefs that many evangelicals hold to:

– Seven in ten evangelicals–more than the population at large–said that Jesus was the first being God created.

– Fifty-six percent agreed that “the Holy Spirit is a divine force but not a personal being.”

– A huge increase in evangelicals (28 percent, up from 9 percent) indicated that the Third Person of the Trinity is not equal with God the Father or Jesus, a direct contradiction of orthodox Christianity.

– By definition, evangelicals in this survey believed that “only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God’s free gift of eternal salvation.” Yet nearly half agreed that “God accepts the worship of all religions including Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.”

– Two-thirds of evangelicals–more than Americans in general–said Heaven is a place where all people will ultimately be reunited with their loved ones. Many of these folks evidently see no contradiction between their casual universalism and the evangelical creed that salvation comes through faith in Christ alone.

– Two out of five evangelicals say “worshipping alone or with family is a valid replacement for regularly attending church”.

Morris further noted that former Newsday religion reporter Kenneth Briggs recently told Religion News Service that the faith he finds in “mega-type churches” is a “Bible-less,” “alternative version of Christianity.” Scripture, he says, has become “a museum exhibit, hallowed as a treasure but enigmatic and untouched.”

The Bible remains phenomenally popular, of course. Practically everyone has one in his or her home, and many families own four or five. But Briggs characterises our love for the Bible as love for an “artifact,” a “keepsake,” or a lucky “rabbit’s foot.” This talisman of faith mainly stays on the shelf or mantle next to the urn filled with grandpa’s ashes.

Briggs says it was in a prison, not a church, where he encountered the most vibrant and intimate familiarity with God’s Word.

Most everywhere else, his observations confirmed a recent Barna survey, conducted for the American Bible Society, which found that less than half the country can name the first five books of the Old Testament and that a similar number think John the Baptist was one of Jesus’ twelve disciples.

Why does it matter that we’ve become a nation of doctrinal dunces? What harm is there in flunking Christianity 101?

Morris stated that, for Christians, the answer is obvious. If we really believe what we profess–that the incarnation, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single most important fact of history and eternity–then we’d better improve our grade.

Knowing who the God we claim to worship is can no longer be a third priority if we want the world to take us seriously as his followers:

“In the subduction zone between a nominally Christian culture and a distinctly post-Christian one, sparks are flying–in florist’s shops, bakeries, universities, legislatures, and bathrooms nationwide.

Those who want to live in peace with the still-sizeable Christian remnant need to move past lazy dismissals of religious “bigotry,” and learn why Christians have come to the conclusions we have for 2,000 years”, Morris wrote.

“The results of this survey ought to embarrass all of us. But they should also serve as a kick in the pants to re-familiarize ourselves with our own religion–or at least our own history. There’s no excuse to be a nation of heretics. But even that is preferable to being a nation of ignoramuses”, Morris concluded.

A recent report on these findings published in ChristianityToday.com quoted LifeWay Research director Scott McConnell’s related views:

“Sometimes, as Christians in America, we’re so busy running from one thing to another without taking the time to really closely see how this relationship with God works…I think you can see this in the variety of responses [to this survey] where people are in the right theologically on several questions and then completely missing it on others.”

Herein lies the greater danger. Indications are that where Christians are ‘missing it’ creates a wide-open door for unBiblical practices — a natural consequence of the departure from knowing and accurately applying the Scriptures.

In Canada –which is very similar to the United States in many ways — some recent church developments exemplify this principle.

A breibart.com story published at the end of September, Thomas D. Williams reported the case of an atheist pastor coming out of the woodwork. The pastor of West Hill United Church found herself in the middle of a firestorm ever since she came out publicly as a disbeliever.

Ordained in the Canadian United Church in 1993, the Rev. Gretta Vosper slowly began doubting the truths of Christianity until she found herself an avowed atheist, denying not only the Deity of Jesus Christ but even the notion of God altogether.

All this time, however, she continued to lead her church, deemphasizing questions of the supernatural while stressing ‘community’, based on secular values of inclusiveness and compassion.

Reports suggest that the 58-year-old pastor has a “loyal following” at her Protestant congregation in suburban Toronto, which she describes as a good fit for nonbelievers “looking for a community that will help them create meaningful lives without God.”

Members of the flock have expressed their consternation in a variety of ways, wondering aloud how a declared atheist can be allowed to lead a confessionally Christian congregation.

“My understanding is that the United Church of Canada is a ‘Christian’ church based on the teachings of Jesus Christ,” Pamella Fell wrote on a United Church website. “Why, why, why is she still with the UCC if she isn’t a Christian?”

Yet, as Williams notes, the United Church which prides itself on its inclusiveness is treating the matter gingerly, reluctant to declare anything off-limits.

“At the heart of the concerns being raised is a tension between two core values, both of which are central to our identity as United Church. The first is our faith in God. The second is our commitment to being an open and inclusive church,” wrote the Right Reverend Jordan Cantwell, head (moderator) of the United Church of Canada.

The crux of the matter seems to be that for a church that has progressively embraced every aspect of secular culture, it has become hard to say “no” to anything.

With a wink and a nod to the Bible, the United Church has accepted abortion, same-sex marriage, divorce, female ordination and openly gay ministers. But atheism seems a bridge too far.

In other words, for the United Church, it’s all right to “mold” your idea of God so that he (or she) can approve of homosexual sex and transgenderism and killing babies in the womb, but please don’t deny the divinity outright.

These increasingly common tendencies, to ‘pick and choose’ from the scriptures or to prioritize personal preferences irrespective of what the Bible teaches, appear to have filtered down to the average American Christian.

According to David Fiorazo in a recent publication of westernjournalism.com:

“Many American citizens claim to love God and believe we live in a Christian nation, but most of us would admit our actions don’t always match our words, and our culture generally reflects darkness rather than the light of Christ.

People have more than one Bible in their comfortable homes, but prefer not to study God’s Word because it would interfere with how they want to live. Many profess to be saved, and yet these same folks often say there are many ways to Heaven, the meaning of sin has changed, or Jesus is not God….”

Fiorazo concludes that what people seem to be following is humanism, moral relativism, New Age, Universalism or a religion of works, none of which can be seriously defended with Scripture. The evangelical and Protestant Church was compromised many decades ago and obviously weakened.

Part of Fiorazo’s chilling conclusion: “One result is there are countless souls sitting in our churches who are not saved or don’t really believe the doctrine of the church they attend…Welcome to the new post-Christian America”.


WATCH BENNY HINN AND SOME OF AMERICA’S TOP FALSE PROPHETS JUST MAKE STUFF UP AND TELL YOU IT’S PROPHECY

benny

In this latest fraud perpetrated against the body of Christ, Benny Hinn is seen leading the charge into apostasy with his “revelation from God” that the deaths of Oral Roberts on December 15, 2009, and the coming death of Billy Graham will be the “twin signs” that ushers in the end times.

by Geoffrey GriderOctober 10, 2016

DON’T BE FOOLED BY THIS LAODICEAN FOOLISHNESS, IT’S ALL A SCAM TO GET YOU TO “SEND IN THOSE PRAYER CARDS” WITH CHECKS AND CASH ATTACHED.

“A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:30,31 (KJV)

Benny Hinn and company look each other right in the eye, and with such conviction they began to spout off about the hidden “prophecies of the end times” that only they and their anointed bunch of thieves and fakers have access to. As one after another steps up to “prophesy”, they ooh-and-ahh over this latest “nugget from on high” as if God was giving them fresh revelation that the Bible knows nothing about.

In this latest fraud perpetrated against the body of Christ, Benny Hinn is seen leading the charge into apostasy with his “revelation from God” that the death of Oral Roberts on December 15, 2009, and the coming death of Billy Graham will be the “twin signs” that ushers in the end times.

Benny Hinn starts by passing the ball to one of his cohorts and exhorts him to “exercise his prophetic gift” where we hear something equally fantastical. This time we are told, after the deaths of Roberts and Graham, God will “release His hidden ones” to travel the globe working miracles and bamboozling the gullible.

Sadly, Christians all over the world who know nothing about Bible prophecy, lap this stuff up as if Jesus Himself had uttered it. But don’t be fooled by this Laodicean foolishness, it’s all a scam to get you to “send in those prayer cards” with checks and cash attached. Nothing said in the video is the truth and none of it lines up with the Bible.

Now you know, tell a friend.
