The Facts About Billy Graham

  • Has never claimed to have spoken in tongues
  • Has been accused of working with the masons and getting support from them
  • Has been accused of stating that "all roads can lead to heaven"
  • Has been accused of neglecting his famly in pursuit of his gospel enterprise and preaching schedules
What I do know is this........
  • He is the greatest evangelist i have ever heard
  • If he isn't baptised in the Holy Spirit, then those that are need to take a leaf out of his book.
  • God anoints who he chooses, and Billy is anointed, whether he has the "in" "on" "upon" or "office" variety
He has lived the life to the best of his ability and by combining DEATH to SELF and being open to the SPIRIT.....

He has been mightily used.

I salute you sir in your old age.......

Your reward awaits you......

I don't know much about the man as I've always avoided him wherever possible.

I recall when I was a child, everyone I ever heard spoke well of him, sinners and saints on TV and radio and those around me, and I asked how that could be a good thing when Jesus said "woe to you when all men speak well of you". I never got a satisfactory answer, so I never payed any attention to the man.

I could be way off-base, but I wouldn't know since I don't listen to him or read his books.

I'm especially interested to hear the bulk of this board speak up about Billy Graham. My impression (based on my own experiences in Charismatic circles) is that Billy Graham gets a bad rep. Yet...

...he has led a pure life unspotted by scandal like most of his contemporaries
...he has led countless people to the Lord
...he has remained a steadfast representative to Jesus to several US presidents and various public events (9/11, Iran Contra, etc)

I have a lot of respect for Billy Graham. Particularly as an evangelist.

He's not perfect, of course, and I disagree with some of his teachings and some of the things he has done, but overall he's been a great asset to the church.


peace,
Simon

No matter what one thinks of Billy Graham just look at all the souls that came to Christ because of his ministry.

I would have to say he was a fruit bearing tree.

Matthew 7:16
By their fruit you will recognise them.................

The man certainly produced good fruit, a pitty we don't all play as big a part in saving so many souls for Jesus. He may not have been perfect but that is because he was made part of the human race. None of the human race is perfect, no matter how much we sometimes like to think we are! I would think God would be saying to him "well done thou good and faithful servant"

He is a man of God.

A counselor to Presidents.

A winner of souls.

A man of integrity.

I think you are mistaking the "Baptism of/in/by/with the Holy Spirit" with the gift of tongues (the typical Pentecostal mistake). They are totally unrelated. The Baptism of/in/by/with the Holy Spirit is the action of the Holy Spirit that inducts us into the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12.12-13) and tongues are simply a gift of the Holy Spirit as is any other gift, nothing more, nothing less. But I do agree with you, there is no better example of modern Christian evangelism than Billy Graham.

~Jim

Saying what you think is not the same as saying what you know.
