Sermon Overview: Billy Graham is on public record supporting homosexuality,
abortion, his disbelief in a literal hell, his support and practice of infant baptism
to save children, his support for the Catholic Church's worship of Mary (yet he
calls himself a Christian). He has repeatedly praised infidels and apostates as
great Christians. He would not challenge the idea that the Bible is mythology,
when directly questioned. Rev. Graham (a self proclaimed Democrat) said Bill
Clinton would be a good Christian evangelist and that Hillary should "run the
country", in expressing his long-standing devotion to both Bill and Hillary
Clinton. It's plainly the case that Graham loves the world. At a crusade in San
Francisco--Sodom and Gomorrah reborn--Graham announced to the
homosexuals, "Whatever your background, whatever your sexual orientation, we
welcome you tonight." Earlier, at a news conference, the famed evangelist thrilled
the cockles of the homosexual's perverse hearts when he snapped to a reporter
that he was tired of people trying to get him to criticize gays. "It's not the biggest
of sins," Graham said. Billy followed this up by telling the smiling and happy
liberal media: "What I want to preach about in San Francisco is the love of God.
People need to know that God loves them no matter what their sexual
orientation." Graham also proudly confided: "I have so many gay friends, and we
remain friends." And much more. http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?

Jude 3&4: "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common
salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should
earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."




     Romans 16: 17&18: "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions on
offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such
serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches
deceive the hearts of the simple."

Some of the areas that Billy Graham deviates from Scripture are as follows:

                                                   He is on public record supporting
                                                   homosexuality, abortion, his disbelief in a literal
                                                   hell, his support and practice of infant baptism
                                                   to save children, his support for the Catholic
                                                   church's worship of Mary (yet he calls himself a
                                                   Christian). He has repeatedly praised infidels
                                                   and apostates as great Christians. He would
                                                   not challenge the idea that the Bible is
                                                   mythology, when directly questioned.

Rev. Graham said Bill Clinton would be a good Christian evangelist and that Hillary
should "run the country". In expressing his long-standing devotion to both Bill and Hillary
Clinton, Billy Graham showed the same worldly heart which prompted Dr. Cathy Burns her to
write, "Billy Graham: A Hidden Agenda".

The San Francisco Chronicle and Examiner called
Billy Graham the "Superman of the Cloth," noting
that the evangelist has been friend of Presidents
and was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
It's plainly the case that Graham loves the world.in his crusade of October in San
Francisco--Sodom and Gomorrah reborn--Graham announced to the homosexuals,
"Whatever your background, whatever your sexual orientation, we welcome you tonight."

Earlier, at a news conference, the famed evangelist thrilled the cockles of the
homosexuals' lusty hearts when he snapped to a reporter that he was tired of people
trying to get him to criticize gays. "It's not the biggest of sins," Graham said. Billy
followed this up by telling the smiling and happy liberal media: "What I want to preach
about in San Francisco is the love of God. People need to know that God loves them no
matter what their sexual orientation." Graham also proudly confided: "I have so many
gay friends, and we remain friends."

Contrast this with what the world of God says:

I Corinthians 6:9-10: "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of
God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor
abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Romans 1:26-28: For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their
women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God
gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient...Romans
1:32: "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of
death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Billy Graham is the most highly esteemed "Christian" figure among both secular (the
world) and religious circles, but take heed as the Bible says:
Luke 16:15: "And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God
knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the
sight of God.

James 4:4: "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."

In 1978 Billy Graham told McCall's magazine, "I used to believe that pagans in far countries
were lost if they did not have the gospel of Christ preached to them. I no longer believe that. I
believe that there are other ways of recognizing God through nature for instance and plenty of
other ways of saying 'yes' to God." (See below for further quotes)

Galatains 1:6-10: I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace
of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and
would pervert the gospel of Christ.

But 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. As we said before, so say I now again, If
any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I
should not be the servant of Christ.

John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me.

But Graham said in the United Church Observer, July 1, 1966- "While I certainly believe
that Jesus Christy was born of a virgin, I do not find anywhere in the New Testament that
the particular belief is necessary for personal salvation."



Romans 16: 17&18: "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions on
offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such
serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches
deceive the hearts of the simple."

Proverbs 14:12, 16:25 : "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end
thereof are the ways of death."



Jeremiah 17:9 : "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can
know it?"



II Corinthians 2:11: "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of
his devices."
John 8:31&32: "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in
my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth
shall make you free."


Billy Graham and the Catholics

http://www.despatch.cth.com.au/Misc/Graham3.htm

Billy Graham has called Pope John Paul II, "...the world's greatest evangelist."

Graham has taken an honorary degree from Belmont Abbey in 1967. His comment about the
honor was that he, "...knew of no greater honor" then receiving this degree. He said at that
time. "The Gospel that built this school and the Gospel that brings me here tonight is still the
way of salvation." From this, we may conclude that the Gospel of Billy Graham in 1967 and
onward was the Gospel of the Roman Catholic Antichrist Whore Church. This explains all the
slippage since 1967. He inhaled the incense, and he is now the Pope's disciple.

                                       Billy Graham receiving honorary degree from
                                       Catholic Belmont Abbey

                                       What does Billy Graham say about the Pope today?

                                       United Church Observer, July 1, 1966- "While I certainly
                                       believe that Jesus Christy was born of a virgin, I do not
                                       find anywhere in the New Testament that the particular
                                       belief is necessary for personal salvation."

                                       The Star, April 10, 1979- I've never cast the demon out
                                       of anyone. I don't have the power, and I'm not sure
                                       anyone does."

                                     March 8, 1979- National Enquirer- Regarding the Pope,
                                     Graham said, "He'll be warmly greeted because he's
                                     such a down-to-earth, fun-loving man who creates friends
                                     wherever he goes. I firmly feel Pope John Paul II will be
the most respected pope of the century and he'll become the moral leader of the world." That is
a mouthful folks.

National Enquirer, Aug. 9, 1983- Graham gives six steps to be a winner. It is curious that in the
Bible six is the number of man and sin. "1. Set your personal goals high. 2. Appreciate
yourself. 3. Make honesty and integrity key words in your life. 4. Be sensitive to the needs and
feelings of others. 5. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. 6. Have the courage to change things
in your life." Not one word about salvation or the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

August 20, 1988- AP- "Graham said he had received, 'wonderful support' from Catholic, as well
as mainline Protestant bodies and black churches. "People really came out in numbers..."

GRAHAM BELIEVES MEN CAN BE SAVED APART FROM NAME OF
CHRIST


Updated May 31, 2006 (first published August 14, 1997) (David Cloud, Fundamental Baptist

Billy Graham turned his back on biblical fundamentalism and renounced separation in the
1950s. He ignored the Bible's warning, "Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good
manners" (1 Cor. 15:33), but he did so to his own spiritual peril. Each decade has brought him
farther from biblical faith.



In 1978 he told McCall's magazine, "I used to believe that pagans in far countries were lost if
they did not have the gospel of Christ preached to them. I no longer believe that. I believe that
there are other ways of recognizing God through nature for instance and plenty of other ways of
saying 'yes' to God."



The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Graham's mouthpiece Christianity Today were
quick to claim that Graham was misquoted, but Graham affirmed this heresy in May 1997 in an
interview with Robert Schuller. Television interview of Billy Graham by Robert Schuller.
Part 1, an approximately 7-minute-long broadcast in Southern California on Saturday,
May 31, 1997. The following is an exact transcript* of an excerpt close to the end of this
broadcast. Consider the following amazing excerpt:
http://www.biblebb.com/files/tonyqa/tc00-105.htm



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: [R. S. trips over his tongue for a moment, his face beaming, then says I I'm so
thrilled to hear you say this. There's a wideness in God's mercy.



GRAHAM: There is. There definitely is. (Television interview of Billy Graham by Robert Schuller.
Part 1, an approximately 7-minute-long broadcast in southern California on Saturday, may 31,
1997. Excerpted by Dr. Robert E. Kofahl)



SOME HISTORICAL BACKGROUND FOR UNDERSTANDING BILLY GRAHAM'S SHOCKING
PROFESSION OF ROMAN CATHOLIC STYLE UNIVERSALISM IN 1997 By Robert E. Kofahl,
Foundation magazine, May-June 1997



Billy Graham's first great city-wide evangelistic campaign was held in Los Angeles in 1949. At
that time he made a public promise that he would never have any theological modernists
(theological liberals) on his platform. Dr. Graham's first evangelistic campaign in England was
held in the summer of 1954. On that tour he was accompanied by Dr. John Sutherland Bonnell,
the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in New York City. Dr. Bonnell was also the president
of the Ministerial Association of New York City, which was dominated by modernist ministers
and churches. On Dr. Graham's British tour Bonnell was working to persuade him to hold a
campaign in New York in
1956 under the auspices of the liberal Ministerial Association. During that time a group of Bible-
believing pastors and laymen sent Dr. Graham in England a telegram asking him to hold an
evangelistic series in New York City sponsored by "a committee of twice-born men."



On his return to the States Dr. Graham announced that he would come to New York in 1956
sponsored by the Ministerial Association of New York City. The committee of Bible-believing
men sent a delegation to Dr. Graham begging him not to confuse the line between the gospel of
grace and the false gospel of the modernist churches represented in the Ministerial Association.
Graham turned a deaf ear to them, and came to New York with the requirement that all
churches should be invited to participate in the campaign. In that campaign, the Billy Graham
Association trained counselors sent from all sorts of churches, including the Roman Catholic
Church. The policy was established of directing each inquirer during the campaign to his or her
home church. Some Protestants were sent to modernist churches. Roman Catholics were
directed back to the priest of the Roman church nearest to their home address. This policy of
cooperation with the Roman Church continues to this day.



Dr. Graham has received honors from Roman Catholic circles, including an honorary degree
from a Catholic college. In his last campaign in the British Isles, two leading prelates in the
Roman Catholic Church in England sent out pastoral letters encouraging Catholics to attend the
Graham meetings. One of these prelates explained to his parishioners that "Billy Graham knows
our limits." That is, the Roman Church can count on him not to touch on any theological
doctrines that contradict official Romanist teachings. Thus Dr. Graham will not explain that a
sinner trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sins and eternal life must give up any
trust he might have in any other object of faith; that he or she must trust in the Person, Jesus
Christ, and Him alone, not trusting in Mary or saints, rejecting any trust in the sinner's good
works or religious observances, relying totally on His perfect work of redemption, a
substitutionary atonement on the cross, taking the sinner's place under the judgment of God
and receiving in His body the total punishment for sin that the sinner deserves, and through
repentance and faith receive the perfect righteousness of Christ, imputed by God to the
believer, that makes the sinner forever acceptable to a holy God, and immediately a possessor
of the gift of eternal life that cannot be forfeited or lost, kept by the power of God throughout all
eternity. If Billy Graham were to preach this biblical and complete doctrine of salvation, he would
at once lose the support of the Roman Catholic leaders. Multitudes of Roman Catholics would
be warned and frightened from attending Billy Graham meetings.
The doctrine that Dr. Graham expressed to Dr. Schuller is exactly what the Pope and the
Ecumenical Institute in Rome have been teaching for years. This is the idea that any pagan,
practicing idolatrous worship, having no slightest knowledge of the Bible, the gospel of grace, or
the Person and name and redeeming work of Jesus Christ--if he is a "good person" and if he is
sincere in whatever he may believe--is automatically "redeemed by the blood of Christ."



This false doctrine of salvation was clearly and explicitly asserted and defended in debate about
four years ago on radio stations KABC and KBRT by Father Vivian Benlima, then Director of the
Office for Ecumenical and Interdenominational Affairs of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, who
had returned from a year's study at the Ecumenical Institute. It is the official teaching of the
Roman Church.



The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was the primary force for the founding of the
Lausanne World Evangelism Conferences back in the
1980s. Especially in recent years these conferences have called on all churches, including the
modernist ecumenical churches of the World Council of Churches and the Roman Catholic
Church to cooperate with the evangelical churches in evangelizing the world for Christ. At
Amsterdam '86, billed as a "school for evangelists" and sponsored by the Billy Graham
Evangelistic Association, Graham revealed his ecumenical, inclusivist approach to worldwide
evangelism. In the final press conference, Dr. Graham was asked by Dennis Costella, a news
correspondent for Foundation magazine, how he could justify this melding together of such a
disparate crowd of theologically disunited religious groups. Dr. Graham responded:



"Evangelism is about the only word we can unite on. . Our methods would be different and there
would be debates over even the message sometimes, but there is no debate over the fact that
we need to evangelize. ... I think there is an ecumenicity here that cannot [be gotten] under any
other umbrella."



Therefore, according to Billy Graham, all the churches must be willing to disagree even on the
question of what the Christian message is so long as they are "evangelizing."

come and go. You can see a portion of a screen shot from the site where his name was
listed.

If Reverend Graham is a Freemason as this Louisiana Masonic Family Web Site reported, and
we have no reason to doubt it, then we can begin to understand why and how his organization
has drifted far, far away from pursuing the true goals of the Fundamental, Bible-believing
Christian Churches. These goals were well supported by Reverend Graham in the late 1940's,
as well they should have been, because they were based upon Biblical principle. As Reverend
Graham began to drift away from these goals, we in the Fundamental community were terribly
dismayed and filled with consternation!! We began to watch the activities of his organization
very carefully, and saw, to our greater dismay, that he continued to drift into the camp of
apostate churches and New Age organizations! Today, Reverend Graham is cooperating with
the Roman Catholic Pope and the Vatican on many issues, he has been seen speaking to the
World Council of Churches, and cooperating with other apostate religious leaders. We will
document these activities, below.

The official Genessee Lodge NO. 174 also listed Mr. Graham as a "Famous Mason".



Note: This site was hot linked at the time we first posted this article. Masonic sites who list
Reverend Graham as a Freemason come and go. (The original list was changed and is not
available anymore on Internet)

If Reverend Graham is a Freemason as this Louisiana Masonic Family Web Site reported, and
we have no reason to doubt it, then we can begin to understand why and how his organization
has drifted far, far away from pursuing the true goals of the Fundamental, Bible-believing
Christian Churches. These goals were well supported by Reverend Graham in the late 1940's,
as well they should have been, because they were based upon Biblical principle. As Reverend
Graham began to drift away from these goals, we in the Fundamental community were terribly
dismayed and filled with consternation!! We began to watch the activities of his organization
very carefully, and saw, to our greater dismay, that he continued to drift into the camp of
apostate churches and New Age organizations! Today, Reverend Graham is cooperating with
the Roman Catholic Pope and the Vatican on many issues, he has been seen speaking to the
World Council of Churches, and cooperating with other apostate religious leaders. We will
document these activities, below.

Before we get started, however, we need to reiterate that we found this information on an official
Masonic Web Site, not on an anti-Mason Web Site. We cannot conceive that the Louisiana
Masonic Family Web Site would print a lie concerning their membership. We urge you to click
on these Web addresses that we listed, above, to see this information for yourself. However, we
have noticed that several official Masonic Web Sites that used to include Reverend Graham's
name on their membership list have subsequently removed his name. Why would they do this?
They undoubtedly took this action because of pressure from the Graham organization.

Therefore, we believe that this Louisiana Masonic Family Web Site might also remove his name
from their membership once this news is reported. The only reason we can think of that this kind
of pressure might be exerted is the Reverend Graham is not willing that others learn of his
membership at this time. Perhaps he feels that Christians of his key constituencies would leave
in droves should they learn that he is a Freemason.
In the next article, we shall examine the ramifications of this startling information that Reverend
Billy Graham is a Freemason. But, now, we need to examine the things which the Graham
organization has done over the years that caused Fundamental Christians to understand, with
dismay, that he was moving toward apostasy.

Billy Graham's Rapid Change of Principles

I. Billy Graham's Rapid Changes From His Original Crusade Policies

This is taken from "Billy Graham's 23 years of Theological Change" by Rev. Charles Emert,
1971.

A. Change Regarding The Apostate World Council of Churches 1. In 1948 Billy Graham was
asked, "What do you expect the WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES to do this August when
they visit Copenhagen?" He replied, "I believe they are going to NOMINATE THE
ANTICHRIST!" [He certainly was against the WCC at that time!] 2. As Early As 1966 He
boasted that he attended the WCC assembly in New Delhi in 1961, and he hoped he would
attend the 4th assembly in Uppsala, Sweden in 1968 (which he did). He has attended all but two
WCC assemblies ever since. This policy continues. Quite a CHANGE!

B. Change Regarding Sponsorship by Various Councils of Churches 1. In 1952 Billy Graham
wrote to Dr. John R. Rice, "... we have NEVER been sponsored by the COUNCIL OF
CHURCHES in any city except Shreveport and Greensboro ... both small towns where the
majority of ministers are evangelical." 2. As Early As 1964 Billy Graham's Columbus, Ohio,
crusade was sponsored by the modernistic Columbus area Council of Churches. This policy
continues. Quite a CHANGE!

C. Change Regarding Non-Fundamentalists In Authority or Responsibility 1. In 1955 Billy
Graham said to Dr. John R. Rice: "I will NEVER have anybody take a PLACE OF AUTHORITY
or RESPONSIBILITY in my campaign who is not SOUND IN THE GREAT FUNDAMENTALS
OF THE FAITH." 2. As Early As 1957 In the New York crusade, Billy Graham had Henry Pitt
Van Dusen, President of Union Theological Seminary. take a place of responsibility and
authority. U.S. News wrote that Van Dusen's school was "one of the most LIBERAL and LEFT-
WING schools in America." Yet for all this, they wrote that "Dr. Van Dusen is considered by
Graham as a GREAT RELIGIOUS LEADER." He [Billy Graham] has used other apostates such
as Robert J. McCracken, Norman Vincent Peale, and others. This policy continues in his
crusades. Quite a CHANGE!

D. Change Regarding Separation From Those Who Reject Biblical Authority 1. In 1952 and
1958 Billy Graham, in time past made sound statements concerning false doctrine: a. In 1952,
He wrote to Bob Jones, Sr., "We have never had a man on our committee that denied the
VIRGIN BIRTH, the VICARIOUS ATONEMENT, or the BODILY RESURRECTION." b. In 1958.
He stated in Eternity Magazine: "If a man blatantly denies the DEITY OF CHRIST or that Christ
has come in the flesh, we are NOT TO EVEN BID HIM GODSPEED. Thus, the Scriptures teach
that we are able to be SEPARATED FROM those who DENY THE DEITY OF OUR LORD
JESUS CHRIST ... I am to treat him as an ANTICHRIST and an ENEMY OF THE CROSS."
[Cutting Edge Commentary: We applaud this statement by Graham, as he certainly knows the
Scritural teaching regarding the definition of what qualifies as Antichrist teaching, and the
commandment to separate yourself and your organization from such teaching and from anyone
who teaches such heresy. Therefore, we read, with heavy heart, the next revelation.] 2. As Early
As 1963 He had United Methodist Bishop, Gerald B. Kennedy, as his Los Angeles Crusade
Chairman. Kennedy wrote in one of his books: "I believe that the testimony of the New
Testament, taken as a whole, is AGAINST THE DOCTRINE OF THE DEITY OF JESUS ..." This
policy continues. Quite a CHANGE! [Cutting Edge Commentary: If Graham was including in his
Crusades a man who publicly denied the Deity of Jesus Christ, as early as 1963, how is it that
all Fundamentalist Christians continued to believe in him? The answer is that too many of us
knew Graham only from his TV sermons, which contained no error. We assumed his
organization would be similarly true to the Bible. We did not look behind the scenes to see the
heresy beginning to creep in!]

E. Change Regarding Encouraging "Converts" to go to Modernistic Churches 1. In 1950 Billy
Graham's secretary, Jerry Bevan, wrote, "Certainly, Dr. Graham does NOT encourage converts
to go to Catholic or MODERNISTIC CHURCHES." 2. As Early As 1957 He sent ... 373 of his
New York City decision cards to the apostate Marble Collegiate Church in that city. This trend
continues in regard to apostate Protestant churches, Catholic churches, Jewish synagogues,
and elsewhere. Quite a CHANGE! [Cutting Edge Commentary: The word "apostate" refers to
someone or some organization that once stood for the Truth of the Gospel, but has
subsequently abandoned this Truth and is now advocating other positions that are not Biblical
Truth. Almost all Mainline Protestant denominations, such as the Methodist, Episcopalian,
Congregationalist, to name just a few, at one time were very Fundamental and adopted the
same stands we currently adopt. However, over the passage of time, these denominations have
drifted away from strictly observing the Fundamental Doctrines and have begun to either
compromise their beliefs or deny their previously held beliefs]

F. Change Regarding Roman Catholicism: 1. In 1964 Billy Graham's aide, George Edstrom,
wrote: "Mr. Graham has NEVER PREACHED IN A CATHOLIC CHURCH, and he does NOT
AGREE WITH THEM in the joining of ONE CHURCH. If you heard this, it is nothing but false
rumors." 2. As Early As 1963 [Note that this date is one year earlier than this statement, above]
In 1963, Mr. Graham had spoken at the Roman Catholic Belmont (NC) Abbey College. [Cutting
Edge Commentary: Denying, in 1964, that Graham had spoken any Catholic Church, when he
had, in fact, spoken at Belmont Abbey College the year earlier, does not this qualify as an bold
faced lie?!] 3. In 1967 He again spoke at this college at the Institute for Ecumenical Dialogue,
receiving his honorary Doctor of Humane Letters (D.H.L.) from them and saying that this was "...
a time when PROTESTANTS AND CATHOLICS could meet together and greet each other as
BROTHERS, whereas ten years ago they could not." At the same time, he stated: "The Gospel
that built this school and the gospel that brings me here tonight is still the only way to salvation."
This policy of pro-Roman Catholicism continues. Quite a CHANGE! [Cutting Edge Commentary:
We find it almost inconceivable that Graham could equate the True Gospel of Salvation Through
Grace ALONE, with the Roman Catholic False Gospel of Salvation through good works, through
the Sacraments of the Church, through Baptism, through praying to dead saints, through
praying the Rosary, through Indulgences, and through Penance. These vast differences are
what caused Martin Luther to break with the Roman Catholic Church and to start the Protestant
Movement. Did you know that the very word, Protestant, derived from the word, "Protest"
against Rome? Have you forgotten, Mr. Graham, the 8,000,000 million Protestant martyrs at the
hands of the Catholic Inquisition, from 1550-1850? When Graham is making these statements,
and calling Catholics brothers, he is denying the collective martyrdom of all these valiant
Christians who died at the hands of Rome.]

[The Roman Catholic Church completely fulfills two prophecies. 1) John 16:2-3, "yea, the time
cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will
they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me." More than the Roman and
Jewish persecutors during the day Jesus spoke these words, the Roman Catholic Church has
fulfilled this prophecy. This is exactly what they were doing during the Inquisition, martyring
Protestants and then claiming they were doing God service. And, Jesus nails the issue right on
the head when He states that the people who do this do not know either the Father or Jesus. 2)
Revelation 17:6, "And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood
of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration." This "woman" is
the religious false harlot, whom Protestant Bible scholars have identified as the Roman Catholic
Church for the past 200+ years. Certainly, Rome qualifies here, as well. Reverend Graham
slighted every one of these 8,000,000 Christian martyrs when he equated the True Gospel with
the Roman Catholic Church. But, if Graham is secretly a Freemason, we know how and why he
can make this kind of statement. Remember this about a Freemason: he believes he is following
a higher religious truth than is contained within any individual religious organization, including
Christianity. Therefore, Graham can preach the Gospel with his lips while guiding his
organization toward the Freemasonry ideal of the global Fraternity of Mankind, i.e., the New
World Order Religion!! And, he can do this without suffering feelings of remorse and
conscience!]

G. Change Regarding Communism 1. In 1949 Billy Graham said: "Communism is inspired,
directed, and motivated, by the Devil himself." [Cutting Edge Commentary: Graham spoke the
Truth here; the question is, did he believe it then, or was he simply following the Dialectic
Process at this point? In NEWS1007 "Thesis x Antithesis = Synthesis -- The Real Flow Of
History", we showed that Freemasonry created Communism so as to provide the world with the
needed Antithesis to battle Thesis to produce the Synthesis, which is the New World Order.
Read this article carefully. The point is, if Billy Graham were a Mason above the 30th Degree,
and he probably was, given his high position of World Evangelist, then he knew that
Communism was a loyal ally in the "struggle" to achieve the Synthesis, the New World Order.]
2. As Early As 1959 In Christianity Today, it was reported: "Without elaboration, the evangelist
[Graham] said his thinking had undergone some CHANGES .. and he indicated that his attitude
toward EASTERN EUROPE is more open." This policy continues. Quite a CHANGE! 3. In 1982
He visited the Moscow Peace Conference and said: "I saw no evidence of religious persecution
in Russia." This was in spite of his visit to the Siberian Pentecostals staying in the American
Embassy. [Cutting Edge Commentary: This was the event which I saw with my own eyes, as I
watched on TV, that caused me to begin to doubt Reverend Billy Graham. With my background
in history and government, I knew that the Communist Russian Government strictly controlled
what Graham saw in Russia, and I knew that the severe persecution of religion and the murder
of many Christians, was one of the most well documented tragedies of the 20th Century.
Therefore, for Graham to make this statement, I knew he had to either be terribly naive or
misled, or that he had to be cooperating with the Communists. Further, I watched carefully over
the next days, weeks, and months, to see if the Graham Evangelistic Organization issued a
statement of clarification of Graham's ridiculous remarks, because many times, an official
makes a silly remark off the cuff but his office is careful that everyone knows it was a mistake.
No such clarification was ever issued. In 1982, I was a full 5 years away from understanding the
first thing about the New World Order].

II. A SAMPLING OF OTHER UNSCRIPTURAL BELIEFS OR POLICIES OF BILLY GRAHAM A.
Communism, Roman Catholicism, and Mohammedanism "In 1948, he said: 'The three gravest
menaces faced by Orthodox Christianity are Communism, Roman Catholicism, and
Mohammedanism.' In 1973, he said that Communist Mao Tse-Tung's eight precepts are
basically the same as the Ten Commandments. In 1973, he praised the Roman Catholic mass
as a 'very beautiful thing', and by 1978, he said Muhammed Ali's beliefs in Islam 'are something
we all could believe'." [Cutting Edge Commentary: While this change in statements make no
sense on the surface, and absolutely no sense to the Christian whose beliefs on key matters are
based upon Eternal Scripture, these changes make absolute sense for a Freemason! A
Freemason believes that all religions are equally valid, and it embraces all the "Wisdom" of all
the Ancient Mystery Religions. Further, a Mason will look upon Communism as a loyal ally in the
drive to create the Synthesis system known as the New World Order!! B. Infant Baptismal
Regeneration and Billy Graham "In 1961, Dr. Graham said this of infant baptism: "I do believe
that something happens at the baptism of an infant ... I believe that a miracle can happen in
these children so that they are regenerated, that is, made Christian through infant baptism."
[Cutting Edge Commentary: Wow, Graham made this kind of heretical statement in 1961? Why
did it take us Fundamentalists so long to realize that Graham was an apostate??!! We had on
blinders, didn't we?]

C. Apostate Leslie Weatherhead On Billy Graham's Platform In London "In 1966, Dr. Graham
said this of infant baptism: 'I remember during our London Crusade of 1954, I preached a
sermon ... Dr. Leslie Weatherhead sat on the platform that evening and to my surprise
commended my sermon.' Dr. Weatherhead was a notorious blasphemer who wrote in his book,
The Christian Agnostic, that the Lord Jesus Christ was born an illegitimate child, and that Mary
was no virgin, but a temple prostitute." [Cutting Edge Commentary: This heretical notion that
Jesus Christ was born out of wedlock is a common New Age teaching. Some New Age authors
have even gone so far as to say that the father was a Roman soldier, and some even say that
the soldier was of German descent! I guess the question to ask about this situation, was, why
did Graham allow Dr. Weatherhead to even sit on the platform, if Weatherhead was so blatantly
a heretic? A speaker allows only dignitaries with whom he agrees to sit on the platform while he
is speaking. Just sitting on the platform with Graham signifies that Graham was conferring honor
and acceptance on Weatherhead!]

D. Billy Graham Doesn't Think The Heathen Are Lost "In 1978, McCall's Magazine reported Dr.
Graham's 'updated' understanding of the way of salvation. 'I used to think that pagans in far-off
countries were lost -- were going to hell -- if they did not have the Gospel of Jesus Christ
preached to them. I NO LONGER BELIEVE THAT ... I believe there are other ways of
recognizing the existence of God -- through nature, for instance -- and plenty of other
opportunities, therefore, of saying yes to God." [Cutting Edge Commentary: While the Apostle
Paul did say, in Romans 1:18-20, that all men have a basic knowledge of God's existence
implanted in their inner consciences, and they can see evidences of God's existence in nature,
Paul is saying all this in connection with the concept that, because of these things, all men are
without excuse before God on Judgment Day. Paul's exact words were, "... so that they are
without excuse". Paul never, ever, said that the pagans do not need the Gospel to be saved, as
Graham here is saying. In fact, Paul boldly states just the opposite, in Romans 10:14-15, " How
then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of
whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they
preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the
gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" How can the pagans, Paul asks, be
saved without a preacher being sent to preach the Gospel to them? Dr. Graham was clearly
wrong here; why didn't we get wise then?]

E. Billy Graham -- Now Works With Everyone "Once a self-confessed 'Bible fundamentalist and
separatist', today Dr. Graham freely associates and fraternizes with 'anyone under any label' --
liberal, modernist, charismatic, Catholic. We are not surprised that Dr. Graham is now a friend of
the World Council of Churches and the Roman Catholic Church ... In his crusades, Dr. Graham
has established a global pattern of cooperative, ecumenical evangelism, allowing liberals,
modernists, evangelicals, charismatic, and Roman Catholics to work together, thus accelerating
the pace of ecumenical union." [Cutting Edge Commentary: My beloved Mother was a fervent
Graham supporter, and believed that I was totally off base in my complaints. However, in 1994,
just months before she died, she called me one night, crying. She said, "David, you were right
about Billy Graham being an apostate! I have just been watching his crusade and I was upset
from the beginning by seeing Roman Catholic nuns and priests on his platform, sitting behind
him. When he gave his standard invitation to come down to accept Jesus Christ as Savior, he
then said, 'And if you are Roman Catholic, I want you to come down to renew your vows.' " Mom
well knew that there is no salvation within Roman Catholic doctrine, and from that moment on
stayed completely away from any association with Billy Graham and his organization. But, Dr.
Graham has always been ecumenical, because his crusades have always encouraged the
advance support work from all Protestant churches in the area in which he is going to have his
crusade! And, he has sent follow-up cards to all Protestant churches after his crusade. Lately,
he has been including the Roman Catholic Church in this effort. Therefore, Dr. Graham has
always promoted Ecumenicism.

The Ecumenical Movement seeks to unite all churches of all denominations, even though many
of these churches hold different doctrines, some them of very important doctrines. Basically,
these churches unite, "agreeing to disagree" on doctrinal matters, emphasizing matters on
which they can agree. Therefore, churches who believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ and
Salvation only through him, are uniting with churches who deny these doctrines! This is the
Ecumenical Movement today! These churches are ignoring Jesus' commandments to "Come
out of her [the false system], my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive
not of her plagues." Or, they have forgotten Paul's warning of associating with non-believers,
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness
with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath
Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?" Truly, when a church who
holds to the traditional doctrines of the Christian faith, joins with a church who denies some or
much of this faith, that church is being "unequally yoked" with an infidel organization, an
organization of "Belial", who is equated with Satan or Antichrist! -- Holman Bible Dictionary
Online --

Furthermore, New Age authors make no bones about the fact that they see the Ecumenical
Movement as being the main tool to bring Christian churches into the planned global New World
Order Religion. Listen to the way in which Master D.K. describes the planned Ecumenical
Movement, speaking through Alice Bailey, in the book, "The Externalisation of the Hierarchy".
"Eventually, there will appear the Church Universal, and its definite outlines will appear towards
the end of this century. This Church will be nurtured into activity by the Christ and His
disciples ... when the true second coming has been accomplished. No date for the advent do I
set, but the time will not be long. The Christian church, in its many branches, can serve as a St.
John the Baptist, as a voice crying in the wilderness, and as a nucleus through which world
illumination may be accomplished ... Its work is intended to be the holding of a broad platform.
The church must show a wide tolerance, and teach no revolutionary doctrines or cling to any
reactionary ideas ... The prime work of the church is to teach, and teach ceaselessly, preserving
the outer appearance in order to reach the many who are accustomed to church usages ... the
sacraments must be mystically interpreted .." -- Page 510-511.

Did you fully understand what the demon, Master D.K., has just revealed? Eventually, the global
church of the Christ -- Antichrist -- , which he has called the Church Universal, will arise toward
the "end of this century". But, first, the Christian Church must serve as a preparatory force to
change the old, "reactionary" church, which has promoted "revolutionary doctrines" into a new,
combined church which holds forth a "broad platform" that shows a "wide tolerance". However,
while this change is going on, the Christian Churches must "preserve their outer appearance" in
order to deceive those who need to still believe they are serving Jesus Christ!! Does this not
fully explain the current Ecumenical Movement? It holds forth a "broad platform" and shows a
"wide tolerance" while still pretending to be Christian! And, as Master D.K. so eloquently states,
the ultimate aim is to produce the Church Universal of the Christ -- Antichrist.

This section, quoted above, makes me think of several Scriptures which speak directly to this
terrible situation facing us today, embodied in the Ecumenical Movement. 1) Jesus warns, in
Matthew 7:13-14, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that
leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and
narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life .." The "broad" way which Jesus stated leads to Hell is
the same "broad platform" of which Master D.K. speaks, above. This "broad" road means that
anyone can believe and practice anything, and still will think it will lead them to Heaven. This is
precisely the belief of the Freemasons, of which Billy Graham is a part. They believe that all
religions are equally valid, and that all roads lead to Heaven. The main enemy is the
Fundamentalist Christian who insists upon following the "narrow way" that leads to eternal life!
2) Jesus warned that, in the Last Days, religious deception would be unparalleled. a) Matthew
24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." b) Matthew 24:10, "And then shall many be
offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another And many false prophets
shall rise, and shall deceive many." Isn't this precisely the effect which the Ecumenical
Movement has had upon the Christian Church? Beginning in 1910, when the National Council of
Churches was founded, many "religious leaders" became offended at the simple, profound, and
miraculous Truth of the Gospel, and they began to hatefully attack those leaders who held to
these Truths. But, these "false prophets" persisted, and have led many away from the Gospel,
deceiving them tremendously. They have paved the way for the coming Antichrist, just as John
the Baptist paved the way for Jesus Christ. Master D.K. knew whereof he spoke. c) Matthew
24:24, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and
wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." This deception
would become more clever and more persuasive, until the only ones who are NOT deceived are
those who are the Elect of God, those who are truly Born Again! We are at this point right now!

Finally, did you notice Master D.K.'s assertion that the "sacraments must be mystically
interpreted"? When he is speaking of the "sacraments" he is including the whole of Scripture, as
well. Thus it is that the entire Bible has been "mystically interpreted". Go into any New Age
bookstore and you will discover books about Jesus' "Lost Years", or about His "Secret
Teachings", or about the revelations of the "Akashic record". These are all systematic efforts to
"mystically" reinterpret Scripture, so the New Ager now has a mystical answer for every valid
doctrine of Scripture. This is unparalleled deception, and its very existence is proof we are living
in the Last Days.]

F. Billy Graham -- Enthusiastic Friend of Rome "Dr. Graham is an ardent admirer and supporter
of the Pope with whom he has regular and warm liaison ... On another occasion, he said that he
believed the Pope to be 'God's instrument for revival in our generation' ... It is now 'normal' for
Roman Catholic nuns and priests to support Billy Graham Crusades by training counsellors for,
and being personally involved in, the crusades." [Cutting Edge Commentary: In NEWS1052,
"Seminar Notes: House of Theosophy, 8/18/91", we reveal that the New World Order Plan has
chosen the Roman Catholic Pope to be its head religious leader of the Church Universal of
Antichrist! This leadership post places the Roman Catholic Pope as the False Prophet of
Revelation 13:11-18. And naming the Pope to this position is consistent with the prophecy of
Revelation 13:11 that he will have "two horns like a lamb", meaning that he will present himself
to a believing world as a Christian leader. Most non-Fundamentalist people today believe the
Pope is a Christian. Billy Graham certainly aids and abets this false perception, doesn't he?
Therefore, Billy Graham is helping Revelation 13:11 to be literally fulfilled, isn't he? And, if
Graham is aiding the False Prophet, then his activities are aiding Antichrist, as well.

G. Billy Graham's "Converts" Sent Back To Their Unbiblical Churches " 'Converts at Billy
Graham Crusades are sent to 'churches of their choice' without any sort of spiritual distinction.
This results in their being sent to liberal-modernist churches, as well as Roman Catholic
churches; newborn babes are being fed with DOCTRINAL POISON." Another Fundamentalist
author, E.L. Bynum, states in his pamphlet, "Why We Cannot Support The Billy Graham
Crusade": "But as a matter of conscience, we cannot endorse the ministry of Billy Graham, nor
can we cooperate in a Billy Graham Crusade. Our reasons are based upon the World of God!!
We cannot remain silent when this ministry of compromise is being used to destroy the very
foundations of the Christian faith. There is a reason why apostates and carnal religious leaders
are so enthusiastic about their support of Billy Graham. Billy Graham is pumping warm blood
into the dead ecumenical movement and helping to build the coming one world church. When
the ecumenical liberals hit a snag in bringing about organic union of the denominations, they
saw in Billy Graham an opportunity to break down the stubborn bars of separation, through the
medium of evangelism. It is working quite well for them."

I had never thought of the fact that Billy Graham began his popular evangelistic ministry at just
the time when the liberal churches were beginning to lose so many members that they were
afraid of going out of existence. Graham's ministry has truly infused new lifeblood into these
dying liberal churches.

At this point, we must reiterate that we do not find much fault with what Billy Graham SAYS
during his sermons. He does preach the True Gospel message, and we are sure that many,
many people have been truly saved during his Crusades. However, we do find much to fault him
for the liberal, modernistic, and apostate people and organizations with which he constantly
associates and supports. And, when his organization sends a brand new baby Christian to one
of these apostate churches for follow-up training, that baby Christian will certainly be quickly
turned into a good New World Order Christian, quite capable of supporting Antichrist when he
arises!!

The fact that we now have been told by the Louisiana Masonic Family that Billy Graham is a
Freemason, we see yet another sign that the End of the Age is upon us. Graham is possibly a
counterfeit Christian, probably the best ever. Does he not know that he is fulfilling the Biblical
prophecies of unparalleled religious deception, deception so good that even the Elect would be
deceived were it not for the power of the Holy Spirit revealing the Truth to the true believers?
We need to really pray for Billy Graham and everyone in his organization!!

Billy Graham Exposed: One-World
Aspirations
From the Research of Fritz Springmeyer
http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Wolves/billy_graham-freemason.htm

Some of the areas that Billy Graham deviates from Scripture are as follows:

                                                 He is on public record supporting
                                                 homosexuality, abortion, his disbelief in a literal
                                                 hell [which is where we are now -100777.com],
                                                 his support and practice of infant baptism to
                                                 save children, his support for the Catholic
                                                 church's worship of Mary (yet he calls himself a
                                                 Protestant). He has repeatedly praised infidels
                                                 and apostates as great Christians. He actively
                                                 supported the American government policy to
                                                 fight the Vietnam War. He would not challenge
                                                 the idea that the Bible is mythology, when
directly questioned. The deception doesn't stop with the Protestants, Catholic supporters have
been kept in the dark about his abortion views. The deception goes way beyond Protestant,
Catholic beliefs.

The fact that he is a priest shows that he does not work for God. Please study the following
links thoroughly.

Matthew 6:5-8 And when thou prayest, thou shalt NOT be as the hypocrites [ARE]: for they love
to pray standing in the churches and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by
men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and WHEN THOU HAST SHUT THY DOOR,
pray to thy Father in private (Enoch 56:5; Sura 7:55); and thy Father which seeth in secret shall
reward thee openly.
But when ye pray, use NOT vain repetitions, as the heathen [DO]: for they think that they shall
be heard for their much speaking.
Be NOT ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of,
BEFORE ye ask Him.

Matthew 23:8 But be NOT ye called rabbi; priest; imam (etc.): for ONE is your Teacher, [even]
Christ; and all ye are brethren.

As a programmed multiple who participates in Satanic Ritual, Billy Graham has deceived
everyone. The second area is concerns about his support for a One-World Church and a One-
World-Government. This stems from:
   1. Billy Graham 's public endorsements of the World Council of Churches and the National
      Council of Churches,
   2. Billy Graham's consistent attendance at the World Council of Churches' meetings,
   3. that Billy Graham has done more than anyone in the world to bring about the One-
      World-Harlot church, and he has done more than anyone to unite all the Christian
      groups into one organization,
   4. Billy Graham's support of the Pope and the Catholic church which is the largest Christian
      religion and one of the pillars of the New Age One-World religious body being set up.
   5. The support that the NCC and WCC gives him,
   6. The support that the internationalists and globalists give Billy Graham. Billy Graham was
      first asked to do his Portland Crusade in 1993 by the WCC/NCC representative in this
      area who is a homosexual, a new ager, and leader of the ecumenical movement...

*** A third area is concern over the lack of depth that conversions at Billy Graham's crusades
have, Some of the details on this are:

l. Only 2% of the people coming forward at a Crusade have never been Christians and are
actually giving their life to Christ for the first time, and of these 80% fall away,

2. A great majority of people that come forward are sent to Catholic and extremely liberal
Churches, extremely few are sent to solid Bible believing churches., In the Catholic Standard
and Times, Thursday, July 16, 1992, p. 10, this Catholic paper reported that 1,900 Catholics
responded to Billy Graham's call to make decisions for Christ in the Philadelphia Crusade and
were referred to about 250 parishes.

3. People that come forward are sent even to Jewish synagogues and New Age churches.,

4. Converts are given the impression that Christ wants decisions for him, rather than that Christ
wants disciples.

5. The people attending the crusades are almost all Christians, due to the high numbers of
Christian counselors and the high number of church people which are always intentionally
bussed in, (Frady exposes this, and in 1992 a writer of the Williamette Week did a major story
for the magazine detailing how she had searched the entire week at the Billy Graham Crusade
for an unsaved person and failed to find a single non-Christian. There were a few, but so few
she didn't find any. Williamette Week, Oct. 1,1992.)

6. Most decisions at the crusades are for trivial things such as to stop smoking. Interestingly,
Christians with discernment spoke about how hurting the churches were after the Billy Graham
Crusade here in Portland. They had been made wild promises of success, they were fleeced of
their money, and then given a lukewarm spiritual boost. Their comments reminded me of this
warning to Billy Graham clear back in the 1950s as to how he was ruining the harvest field. Part
of Satan's Planetary control is through religious leaders.
Christians have been conditioned to believe that Billy Graham is a great prophet of God by the
establishment media, who have told us for years that Billy Graham was the most respected man
in America, The percentages that the controlled Media have reported for Billy Graham's
popularity may have been inflated.


Billy Graham is a 33rd degree Mason

This is an important issue, however, even if Billy Graham were not a 33° Mason, there are many
things that he is doing that should warn Christians not to support him. There have been a
number of people in casual conversation who have mentioned Billy Graham being a 33° Mason,
for instance a CIA leader, a NSA person who is against the NWO, and various Masons. These
accidental revelations are what can be considered casual evidence, in that it is accidentally
heard.

Some of the people who have read Fritz Springmeyer's Be Wise As Serpents book have been
experiencing validation of what was written on Billy Graham by their own casual contacts with
people. These types of encounters are very meaningful to the people who experience them, but
their significance is hard to communicate to others. Hopefully, readers of this, who are truth
seekers, will have their own casual-evidence-validation experience. One piece of casual
evidence came from a Shriner Clown. It turns out the only clowns who were chosen to perform
for the Billy Graham 1993 Portland Crusade were Shriner Clowns. There were non-Masonic
clowns available, even some Christian clowns, but the masons were the only ones Graham
allowed to perform for him.

Various people, who have worked in the system for the Illuminati, such as an ex-witch who is
now a Christian, an ex-33° Mason now a Christian, and a CFR's person also now a Christian, all
testify that Billy Graham is a 33° Freemason. A woman and a man who are ex-Satanists and
now Christians also have mentioned about Billy Graham's Masonic membership.

(One has to understand that there is a close working relationship between the Lodge and the
Illuminati.)

To progress up the ranks in Satanism, they will require you to go through Freemasonry.
Freemasonry then teaches people about the symbology of the mystery religions. The lodges
bring in female Monarch slaves for some of their Egyptian sexual-magic rituals. If the reader
were to get up in the morning and your mother, sister, and brother were in the kitchen and said
that your mother had just drank a cup of coffee, you would be able to tell from their faces if they
were telling the truth, and you would know that your mother had drank a cup of coffee. This is
the way it is for us.

We know these witnesses know the truth, and we know they are not making it up. But if people
don't believe that, then they need to go scrounge up their own witnesses, and risk their own
hide in doing the contacting. The material we presented here is not frivolous work. As pearls of
value, we hope that this research is not taken and allowed to become pearls given to swine.
Because Billy Graham is such a key person for the Illuminati and the Satanic plan to bring in the
Anti-Christ and the One-World-Religion, key parts of Graham's life have been intentionally
shrouded, When he joined the Masonic lodge c. 1948, they intentionally kept his membership
more secret than others. Why?
They are secret about their membership in general, but even more so if the person is a key
Illuminatus and a big key to their religious control, This is why they have kept the membership of
Charles T. Russell, founder of the Watchtower Society quiet. This is why they keep the
memberships of the Mormon prophets secret, It has been a consistent pattern by the Masonic
Lodge to keep these key people's membership very quiet. It would be much easier if we had a
membership certificate, but for people who don't want to believe no amount of evidence would
suffice.

In terms of a paper trail we have the following: Billy Graham's books consistently refer to
basically only Masons. Billy Graham endorsed the Masonic DeMolay program for youth as
God's work. This endorsement by Billy Graham is in a Masonic book that is used to educate
people about "the craft" (that means Freemasonry). That book is The Clergy and the Craft and it
says that the people who are quoted in it are Masons. (See Haggard, Forrest D. Transactions
Missouri Lodge of Research, Vol. No. 27, The Clergy and the Craft, p. 127. where Graham
endorses the Masonic youth program.

In terms of witnesses who have put what they have witnessed in writing we have the following:
Jim Shaw, ex-33° Mason -- the highest ranking Freemason to defect to Christianity, writes about
Billy Graham being at his 33° initiation ceremony. Huntington House refused to print his book
co-authored with Tom McKenney unless they took out Billy Graham's name on pg. 104, and
substituted a general description. (See The Deadly Deception, p. 104-105.) Only Freemasons
are allowed to attend these initiations. (See The New Age, the official organ of The Supreme
Council 33°. Wash., D.C., October 1961, p. 30.) Some Christians have tried every thing in their
mind to get around Jim Shaw's testimony. And the Masonic Lodge are now claiming that he
wasn't a 33° Freemason. There is no doubt that he was a 33° Mason.


IN DECEMBER 2001 BILLY GRAHAM WAS KNIGHTED BY QUEEN ELIZABETH

That should speak volumes to anyone who has understanding of the Illuminati pyramid power
structure and the most powerful Merovingian blood line of the Royal Family.

What we are seeing is how important it is to the Illuminati to keep Billy Graham's membership
secret. Originally, Dr. Morey who wrote a book on Freemasonry told me over the phone that
Billy Graham was a 33° Freemason and that he had held his membership file in his hand in the
library of the House of the Temple, which is where the Supreme Council of the 33° has their
headquarters. However, now he denies it and says that he only was told by the librarians that
the file existed, but that he didn't examine the membership file. He wrote a letter to Christian
News to the editor which was printed. At least, his letter to the editor of Christian News says that
the Scottish Rite have a Billy Graham file.

William M. Watson--DIRECTOR OF THE BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION, he
is a Freemason, and he is also President of Occidental Petroleum Corporation. Chairman of
Occidental was Armand Hammer. Watson is also a member of the development council of the
Masonic run Baylor University. Baylor University has participated in the mind-control, (See also
the expose of Baylor University in Be Wise As Serpents.) He also was a member of the advisory
council to the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth which had at least three
Freemasons on its board of trustees, and likely more.
David M. McConnell--DIRECTOR OF THE BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION,
he is a Freemason, He was also U.S. ambassador to the United Nations (1968-69), business
associate with Illuminatus Charles Gambrell, in Belk Stores of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Arthur Lee Malory--CO-CHAIRMAN of the BILLY GRAHAM CRUSADE Advisory Committee for
the 1973 St. Louis Crusade -- 32° Freemason, deacon in a Southern Baptist Church.

Who are some of the primary ministers that had worked with 33° Freemason Billy Graham over
the years? Billy Graham has helped set up other 33° Masons in ministry. Billy Graham has
placed his stamp of approval on almost every well-known apostate Christian out there. When
Billy Graham had a crusade in Japan, the Japanese minister that he had up on the platform was
a well-known extremely liberal Christian. A conservative Japanese was shocked. Billy Graham
is also endorsing many of the books, and ministries of these apostates. Some of the three
biggest ministers in the protestant world, Robert Schuller, Norman Vincent Peale, and Oral
Roberts are all 33° Masonic brothers of 33° Freemason Billy Graham. (See Roberts, Oral.
Miracle of Seed Faith, p.9.) Billy Graham has helped each of these brothers with their ministries.
Robert Schuller taught principles of church growth to Unity School in Kansas City. A Christian,
who used to be on staff there, said that Robert Schuller was fully aware that Luciferian
Initiations were going on at the school and that he didn't care. Robert Schuller, 33° Freemason,
was helped into ministry by Billy Graham. Schuller also participates in the Monarch program and
is also sexually serviced by Monarch slaves.

Norman Vincent Peale's form of Christianity called positive thinking is actually only white
witchcraft with different names. Peale simply is a "Christian" witch. Norman Vincent Peale, 33°
Freemason, his church receive the bulk of people who came forward at the NY Crusade.
Norman Vincent Peale is a 6° Illuminatus (Pilgrim Society), and a 33° Freemason. In the
magazine Psychic Magazine of San Francisco Peale says of occultist Kreskin, All he's doing is
dramatizing what I've been preaching in my writing for years. Norman Vincent Peale controls
the approx. $200 million Presbyterian Minister's Fund. He celebrated the 25th anniversary of the
United Nations. He was the keynote speaker at the birthday of the late Mormon prophet
Spencer W. Kimball (a secret Mason).

Peale praised Kimball as a true prophet of God, and a great man of God. Peale practices
witchcraft, and palms it off on unsuspecting Christians under different terminology. The false
unity movement which is so strong today, wants to unite the devout Christian with the likes of
Norman Vincent Peale. Peale is a good friend of Billy Graham, and Billy Graham referred the
largest number of new converts of the NY Billy Graham Crusade to Peale's church. Oral
Roberts, 33° Freemason, helped into ministry by his Masonic brother Billy Graham. Oral
Roberts has been seen by witnesses participating in SRA and Mind- control. Oral Roberts
University and the charismatic movement is another important religious front. The Charismatic
movement has been infiltrated by multiples since day-one. The history of the infiltration is
extensive. Oral Roberts had Cherokee blood, According to some things that Oral Roberts has
said, some Christians think that he received his healing powers from an old Indian who healed
him through Indian shamanism when Oral was young.

At times, Oral does use the same methods that spirit mediums use to heal with. According to
slaves who have been deprogrammed, they were in satanic rituals with Oral Roberts. Christian
ministers, who have participated in his ministry are saying that they have seen massive swindle
in his healing ministry. His university is being used as a programming center. His basketball
team at one time had Monarch slaves playing on it. We do not know if they still do. Under the
prayer tower is one of the programming sites. Billy Graham, a handler himself, helped launch
Oral Roberts University, and is a friend of Oral Roberts. From the Illuminati's point of view Tulsa
is the Guardian City of Apollo. The City of Faith is to be the center for healing from AEsculapius,
a demon related to Apollo. While portraying themselves as Christians, infiltrators within the
charismatic movement are carrying out satanic rituals to get demonic healing powers. Tulsa is
one of, if the main center for the campaign to infiltrate Christianity via the
Charismatic/Pentecostal movement with programmed multiples.

G. Bromiey Oxnam, 33 ° Freemason, was head of the FCC churches, supportive friend of Billy
Graham, G. Bromley Oxnam has a long history to him of working for the elite, interested readers
can pick up his story in Be Wise As Serpents in the chapter that goes into the details about how
the Christian churches were organized by the FCC and WCC for the Illuminati.

The NWO is infiltrating the churches via the Earth Stewardship Movement. An attempt was
made at Rio de Janeiro to get an Earth Charter but there wasn't enough time, their were lots of
N.O.G. delegates and just in general lots of people to coordinate (4,000 attended). Another
Earth Summit was promised, but instead they decided at the end of Sept/Oct of '95 to have a
State of the World Forum to be held by/sponsored by the Gorbachev Foundation at the Presidio,
CA. The ex-head of the KGB, Gorbachev is now headquartered in the Presideo, a major mind-
control programming site. Christian basher Ted Turner was the chairman of the conference. The
cost was $5,000 per person and the invitations went out to only select people. There were 100
handpicked politicians who received invitations, along with Billy Graham and Mother Teresa.
This was coordinated with the 50th anniversary of the UN which was being celebrated all over
the world.


FLEECING THE SHEEP

The charismatic movement claims to have the Holy Spirit in a special way, however, some
seem to be lacking in all discernment that the Holy Spirit would give. There are several books
exposing the big name Charismatic ministers. One is written by an ex-charismatic Assembly of
God minister. He shows a picture in his book of an Assembly of God flier promoting the
"Testimony of J. Edgar Hoover."

Yes, the Assembly of God promoted the, "testimony" of J. Edgar Hoover, while he was known to
be a power hungry individual who practiced homosexuality. It was this type of hype that caused
this minister to grow disillusioned with the charismatic movement's so called spirituality.
Recently, the spiritual discernment of Billy Graham and many other big time ministries was
exposed when these big Christian ministries were conned out of $550 million dollars. Billy
Graham introduced John G. Bennett to thousands of people at a recent Billy Graham Crusade
in Philadelphia in 1992. John Bennett gave his testimony at the crusade. Because Billy Graham,
John Templeton, and Laurance Rockefeller were apparently supportive of John G. Bennett, big
time Christian ministries "trusted" him. John told many of the big Christian ministries that if they
gave him millions of dollars, for every million he received he would give them two million back.
Many of the big Christian ministries gave Bennett money--in fact he collected $550 million
(which he ran off with) from ministries such as Pat Robertson's, Bill Bright's, Chuck Colson's,
Luis Palau's, Westminster Theological Seminary, Wheaton College, the Salvation Army and
many others. The reader may have heard of this New Era Foundation scam. That's what it was.
Bennett told these "Christian" leaders "Give New Era one million dollars and we'll give you back
two million." The donations of hard earned money by many innocent Christian believers were
lost, However, the Christian believers are partially responsible because the church has refused
to clean house of wolves that set in their pulpits. For instance, when Billy Graham came to the
Portland area all the various denominations from the most liberal to the most conservative
supported him. Only about a dozen churches did not get involved and only one church actively
tried to expose Billy Graham--EVEN THOUGH THERE HAS BEEN A MASS OF
DOCUMENTATION EXPOSING BILLY GRAHAM AS A WOLF FOR 30 YEARS. When the
church refuses to follow God's Word and supports these men-- then they must take some of the
blame when these men give their millions of hard earned dollars away to a con artist.


INADEQUATE REACTIONS

When people have been warned about Billy Graham, one of the common responses is for
people to call up the Billy Graham crusade staff. If I ask a biologist a question about biology I
can expect to get a credible answer, If I ask a mother about her son I can expect to get a
credible answer. But how in the world can someone call up the Billy Graham Crusade staff and
expect to get a credible answer to the question Is Billy Graham a Mason?

The person that answers the phone is likely a secretary, someone who knows Billy Graham no
more than the janitor. What does that person know about the Freemasons? Because the
Freemasons are a secret society, in general, there are only two basic categories of people--
people involved with Freemasonry, and they certainly know what's going on in it but they have
taken blood oaths on penalty of death not to talk about it, and those who aren't involved with
Freemasonry and don't know anything about it. There are only a few people who are not
masons, who are informed about the Masons. The answer of some secretary over the phone to
the question, Is Billy Graham a Freemason? is of little value, because the secretary or other
staff member has not had the opportunity to get reliable information. This is from the standpoint
of getting a reliable witness, calling some secretary or staff member is simply not a credible
response to all the documentation. No court would view a secretary of a large organization as
an expert witness qualified to settle such a dispute.

The second catch is that such witnesses are not reasonably unbiased. It is expected that Billy
Graham's staff would front for him any questions that could expose him to bad publicity. This
last comment is not speculation.

There is proof that Billy Graham's staff has consistently lied over the years to prevent negative
publicity about Billy Graham. When Richard Nixon met with his political buddies to decide who
to have run with him, the person he asked first in the smoke-filled room was Billy Graham, I
have read the account of this is more than one place, but I will quote Marshall Frady's
description of when Billy Graham was asked who he thought should run with Nixon as Nixon's
vice-presidential running mate. Billy Graham chose 33° Masonic brother (then only 32°) Mark
Hatfield. Here is Frady's description. "His assimilation into the Nixon presidency had already
been well underway, in fact, at that convention in Miami when, after Nixon's nomination,
Graham wound up sitting in Nixon's penthouse suite among the smoggy late-night deliberations
over Nixon's vice-presidential selection: Graham himself, whatever initial uncertainty he might
have felt to find himself in such a political locker-room session, soon pitched into the
proceedings with his own effusive recommendation of Mark Hatfield:
"He's a great Christian leader. He's almost a clergyman. He's been an educator, and he's taken
a more liberal stand on most issues than you, and I think the ticket needs that kind of balance."
In 1992, Mark Hatfield, along with Prince Hall Freemason Jessie Jackson both were on
television in July of last year defending Billy Graham's actions. Mark Hatfield, according to a
deprogrammed slave has been a user of Monarch sexual slaves.

NY's Union Seminary is controlled and funded by the Rockefellers. President of Union Seminary
was Dr. Henry Van Dusen. Billy Graham made him a prominent person in his crusade and said
he was a "classic example" of a mass evangelism conversion, If that is a good example of
Graham's conversions, we Christians should shudder. It is no coincidence that the Southern
Baptists of which Billy Graham is a member, is controlled by the Freemasons. Brook Hays,
Pres, of the So. Bapt. Convention was a high ranking Freemason as well as part of the CFR.
None of the So. Bapt. Convention's Presidents have opposed Freemasonry. Pres. Bill Clinton, a
slave handler, is a member of the Emmanuel Baptist Church which is a Southern Baptist Church
in Little Rock, Ark. The late Bill Moyers who promoted the Mystery Religions was a Southern
Baptist.

Moyers went to the SW Baptist Theological Seminary, the same school run by one of Billy
Graham's staff directors. John Buchanan is another Southern Baptist. John Buchanan went to a
So. Bapt. Seminary, and then worked as a front man for People for the American Way started
by Jewish Norman Lear, an anti-Christian. People might be shocked to learn of some of the
New Age teachings and New Age teachers that have been allowed into the Southern Baptist
churches. The Southern Baptist youth program is based on Masonic ideas and is very Masonic
in its ritual.


SUMMARY

The reader is thanked for wading through a lot of difficult material. The reader can see why Billy
Graham may well be the greatest deception that has ever been successfully pulled off. But as
Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people
some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time." Ever since the early 1950s, there
have been Christians exposing Billy Graham, But the control of the Christian media and the
Christian seminaries is far more extensive than most people realize. Be Wise As Serpents
diagrams out how the Christian religious denominations are being controlled, and how the
Masons and Illuminati-connected administrators and trustees have control of most of the
Seminaries. Billy Graham without a doubt works directly for the Satanic hierarchy. But a rational
and fair appraisal of what the man is, and what damage he has done to Christianity will probably
not be given much of a chance.

Nobody, no matter who they are is going to fool Christ. There will be a real evaluation done on
judgment day.
