Billy Grah a m, Homo s e x u a l s and Catholics — GRA H A M QUOTE D SAYI N G ME N CAN BE SA V E D APA RT FRO M NA M E OF CHRI S T + THE "LOUI S I A N A MA S O N I C FA MI L Y " WE B SITE REPO R T S THAT THE REVE R E N D BILLY GRA H A M IS A FREE M A S O N 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."

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. http://cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=106 Whether you are a defender or a critic of Dr. Billy Graham, you need this book! Dr. Burns has exhaustively researched Dr. Graham's ministry and his association with many other leaders in the Christian community. What she has uncovered will greatly shock you! This adventure will take you inside Dr. Graham's tent meetings, his crusades, on his visits to other countries, and to his friendship with Presidents and other national leaders. Dr. Burns has long held a well-deserved reputation for being thorough and for documentation. This 800-page book has over 4,400 footnotes! This is must read during this troubling time of Christian Apostacy. http://www.cuttingedgeorg/news/n2050.cfm 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". http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Wolves/billy_graham_exposed.htm 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..." ----- Original Message ----- From: "FBIS News Service" <email@example.com> GRAHAM BELIEVES MEN CAN BE SAVED APART FROM NAME OF CHRIST Updated May 31, 2006 (first published August 14, 1997) (David Cloud, Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061, 866-295-4143, firstname.lastname@example.org; for instructions about subscribing and unsubscribing or changing addresses, see the information paragraph at the end of the article) - 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."

The Home Page of the Louisiana Masonic Family was: http://www2.linknet.net/masonic/mig1.htm The link entitled, "Famous Masons" is on http://www2.linknet.net/masonic/famous.htm On Page 12 of 15, alphabetically listed, the Reverend Billy Graham was listed!! The link entitled, "Famous Masons" was on http://www.la-mason.com/famous.htm - On Page 12 of 15, alphabetically presented, the Reverend Billy Graham was listed!! 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. 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!!

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!! * This information taken from "Billy Graham's Repaid Change of Principles", by Rev. D.A. Waite, Th.D., Ph.D., Director, The Bible For Today, 900 Park Avenue, Collingswood, NJ, 08108. [Source: The Cutting Edge Ministries http://www.cuttingedge.org/ ] 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. http://i.am/jah/darth.htm http://i.am/jah/rabbis.htm 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... *** [If you found this article of interest, please consider perusing the FriendsOfLiberty/SiaNews archives Please also consider registering (free) as a FriendOfLiberty at our Front Page, and taking the current Poll: Should the Council on Foreign Relations be Investigated for Treason?] *** 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.
