Are Non-Christians Heaven Bound

After more than six decades spent preaching the Gospel saying only the truth by God's grace can save you through faith alone in Christ, Billy Graham now says non-Christians in other faiths (false religions) and secular humanists may be going to heaven. What do you think about Billy Graham?

"When we are ignorant about something God does not hold it against us." That is no where close to what God was talking about. Stop trying to make something out of nothing.
Mark_V. on 7/21/10

Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at, but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

What does this verse say?
---francis on 7/22/10


The unjust steward!

So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
And he said
An hundred measures of oil.
And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.

Then said he to another, And how much owest thou?
And he said
An hundred measures of wheat.
And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.

The Lord commended the unjust steward!
Because he had done wisely!

For the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light!

Do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do!
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward!
---TheSeg on 7/21/10


Haz, Francis only read the question and not the answer. I see that done many times. I know He wants things to be his way, because he sees them right his way, but God's ways are not our ways. He is concern with so many other area's at one time, and His decisions are always just. We might not see it as just, but if its God's decision it is always just and righteous.
---Mark_V. on 7/21/10


Francis, I do my best to be off my high horse, how about you? What keeps you there? You continue to give passages but they are all out of context for which they were intended. Romans 9:15 is talking about God sovereign right to choose whom He wants to choose. He needs no one help, or merits to make His descision. "For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."
Then You said, you were 100% correct,
"When we are ignorant about something God does not hold it against us." That is no where close to what God was talking about. Stop trying to make something out of nothing.
---Mark_V. on 7/21/10


Francis: You quote Romans 10:14 "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?"

But you missed God's answer to that question just a little further. Rom10:18 "Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world."

Clearly God does get His gospel into all the earth and to the ends of the world. But then God is almighty and well able to do this.
---Haz27 on 7/21/10




ROMANS 10:10 SO FAITH cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of GOD.

Romans 10:14 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?

Clearly not everyone has heard the gospel.
many have died never hearing of jehovah.
But my God is merciful.
AMEN

Do you truely believe that God will send people to hell who have never heard the gospel, never heard of Jehovah, never heard of Jesus, or never heard of the law of God?
---francis on 7/21/10




For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law,

(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another,)



A conscience is all that is needed for God to pass judgement. Althought some might claim we dont have one until spiritually awakened.

Romans 2:14 For when the GENTILES,
Romans 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, (READ Heb8:10)

Trav Read the text agin, I gaurantee it is speaking of GENTILES and not israel.---francis on 7/19/10

1st of all. Gentile a latin word in a greek/hebrew bible is out of place. Etnos/nation is how it was intended. The 10 divorced ethnos nations Christ came seeking for and the apostles were instructed to go to. Read Jesus's own words. Matt 10:6 & Matt 15:24. All the prophets verify.
GOD can and will do what he wants with anyone he wants. He has a reason and I trust it. Trying to make scripture say what it doesn't is the confusion we find today among the labelized doctrines/commentaries.

get off you self righteous horse for a minute.
Romans 9:15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

he is not going to send someone to hell who has NEVER heard of the Law of God.

My meaning is 100% correct
When we are ignorant about something God does not hold it against us.

Romans 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

God does not hold us accountable for what we do not know.
---francis on 7/21/10


Karl, We, including you, cannot ignore JOHN 14:6. The Scriptures are clear...! No man...NO MAN cometh to the Father (including entrance into His Heaven) but by, and only by, accepting His Son YAHUSHUA (JESUS). The souls (spirits) of men will go to Heaven or Hell at death, and those spirits do indeed belong to Him, but, not all in the same way, for, as He says also in His Scripture, that some vessels (men) are made for honour and some are only fit for destruction. Why destruction? Because those vessels have CHOSEN FOR THEMSELVES the paths of sin and unrighteousness that lead to Hell.
---Gordon on 7/21/10


Francis, the meaning you gave to Acts 17:30 is completely different then the meaning God had for the passage in its context. 17:30 it's speaking about "the offspring of God" is quote from Aratus, who came from Paul's region of Cilicia. Not like gold or silver, refers to, if a man is the offspring of God as the greek poet suggested it is foolish to think that God could be nothing more than a man-made Idol. Such reasoning points out the absurdity of idolatry (Isa. 44:9-20). It has nothing whatsoever to do with God excepting ignorance of the law.
Your right, God is just, and He will deal with those who never worshipped Him or honored Him as God, in a just way. There is no cruelty with God. They will get what they have coming.
---Mark_V. on 7/20/10


TO MICHA --
ROMANS 3:22 - Even righteousness of GOD which is by Faith of Jesus Christ unto ALL and upon ALL them believe,

JOHN 6:37 All that the father given me shall come to me and him cometh to me l will in no way cast him out.

I agree with B.Graham, and it would do all some good to read ECCLESIASTES 12:7 "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was, and the spirit return to God who gave it." You will note it does not say the believer's or non-believers, but rather all are meant by this. the seperation of the spirits or souls will happen at judgement, but until then all are with the heavenly Father.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets,
Romans 3:22 Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
---micha9344 on 7/20/10


God is a just God. God, unlike most governments does accept ingnorane of the law as an escuse.

Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at, but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

So no christian should be so self righteous as to believe that God will send people yto hel who have never heard of him.

Th eonly people going to hel are those who reject God / jesus.
ANd those who have never heard and fail to follow their good conscience.

If this is what Billy Graham is referrin to, then he is right.

If he is refering to people on other religions who have rejected God for another God, then he is wrong.

How does God judge everyone? BY THE LAW:
James 2:12 Romans 2:12

Although by creatyion one will sense that there is a God, one doe snot know his laws. Thus God judges them by the laws of God in theri HEARTS.

all christians must do these:
1. Do not worship other gods.
2. Do not worship idols.
3. Do not misuse God's name.
4. Keep the Sabbath holy.
5. Honor your father & mother.
6. Do not murder.
7. Do not commit adultery.
8. Do not steal.
9. Do not lie.
10. Do not covet.

Those who do not know the law should do these
5. Honor your father & mother.
6. Do not murder.
7. Do not commit adultery.
8. Do not steal.
9. Do not lie.
10. Do not covet.

Hello Francis, first of all I do not agree with most of your believes. That said, I want to thank you for discussing godly matters without getting angry. Praise God you have alot of control. Thank you for that.
Concering "those who never hear the gospel" they knew God through creation and did not honor Him as God. Micha's answer are correct. We might not like it, we might think it should be different, and have many ideas of our own, but in the end we have the Word of God. And we have to believe in His Word by faith, that what God instituted is correct and righteous. We can give our opinions, as I have on another blog concerning babies, but it was only my opinion, in my heart I was thinking of a way that they would be saved.

---micha9344 on 7/19/10


There is a difference between having eternal life in heaven and eternal life on earth. There is to be a new heaven and a new earth. Who will populate the new heaven? Who will populate the new earth? It is God who wants to bring the Garden of Eden back into being.

For it is written that there are to be two resurrections: one, when Jesus returns and the dead in Christ shall rise first and the living shall be caught up with them and, two, when all the other dead throughout all of earth's history shall rise and be judged from the Book of Life according to their works.

Blessed are those who rise at the first resurrection.

You've strayed into an area all preachers and self made teachers avoid . The verse is direct reference to Heb 8:10. It is speaking of the Nth house nations of Israel. These are the only ones mentioned having the laws written in their hearts.
Now some blind still think Judah equals all Israel even though they are mentioned throughout both Covenants and to the end of Revelations.

Francis, you are fighting a losing battle because you are on the wrong side of the battle. Only one way into heaven, and that is through Christ Jesus. There is no other way mentioned in Scripture. All of the lost are still considered lost until God saves them. No one has an excuse whatsoever since when they knew God they did not honor Him as God. Knowing about God through creation condemns them for not honoring Him as God.

Not one of the scriptures you quoted addressed people who do not know God or the law of God.

Meaning they do not have the word of God, nor do they know OF God.
The scriptures you posted say that all are saved through christ.True, but what about those who have never heardof God , or christ?

The ones i posted which is RELEVANT to the blog addresses those who DO NOT know God.

Here paul is speaking to sme gentiles who do not yet know God.


Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at, but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Acts 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by [that] man whom he hath ordained, [whereof] he hath given assurance unto all [men], in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Verse 30 says that while they did not know God, God winked ( overlooked their transgression) Now that they know of God they are to repent.

Notice that god does not count their transgressions against them because of thier ignorance ( Not knowing God)

francis, if you read my post, I was commenting on your misinterpretation of the text, not writing it, although you did state that without quoting it.
In context, lets read the next verse:
Rom 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
Jesus: John 14:6b I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John: 1John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life, [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Peter: Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

In the case of those who have not heard, the bible says that their conscience will accuse or excuse them. Those who in thier hearts know to do good, and do evil will be accused, while those who know to do good and do it show the law of God written in their hearts, they will be excused.

John3:18"...but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God"

And Rom2:14,15 is referring to Christians.

Again, why do you claim people have not heard? Do you think the almighty God is not able to get His message to us all? Because you can't see it do you therefore doubt God?

The N - Testament Jesus shed His blood, so some are going through the blood to make it in & others won't have to. SORRY. It just is Not so. Even death - bed repentance will Not work.

In the end, there is to be a new heaven and a new earth. Some, the christians and godly people, will inhabit the new heaven, but most will inhabit the new earth.

At the first resurrection, the dead in Christ shall rise and the living shall be caught up with them. This is when Christ will call his people home (heaven).

At the second resurrestion, at the end of the thousand years, all the other dead from all of history shall rise and be judged from the Book of Life - according to their works.

There are people who do God's commandments without knowing God or Christ or religion - "good" people (relatively speaking).

Blessed are those who rise at the first resurrection for they shall not see the second death.

There are the innocent souls of the aborted, killed otherwise, severe handicap & retardation etc up to an age only God knows, that will be with God aft the white throne judgment of God.
Just like souls from the O - Testament that kept the laws of God.

You say some are. Those you say some are, they Are Not & Will Not. You get to get to heaven through Jesus Christ & His salvation plan.
Since you think some are, then you prob think that the devil will be saved also.

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.
Rom 10:13-14 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 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?
-Otherwise, if one could obtain eternal life thorugh ignorance, it would be rude of us to preach Christ crucified.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse:
Rom 10:3-4

Are Non-Christians Heaven Bound?

Some are:

Romans 2:13 (For not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

Romans 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Romans 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and [their] thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another,)

NO, what Rev. Graham said was that it was up to God and not Billy Graham to decide who and who will not go to heaven.
The second part of his response to John Meacham concerned Pagans who had never heard the gospel. Graham never said those that don't know Christ will go to heaven.

As the saying goes,"everything you read is true unless your involved."

B. Graham, J. Falwell like Most others on tv & radio has gotten his phony Man - made ideas from here, 2nd.Cor.4 v 4 & 11 v's 14 - 15. They'r just getting your pockets for your money & don't care for peoples souls.
---Lawrence on 7/13/10


B. Graham is a man of God. He is also right. These non-Christians who are judged ONLY by Jesus, can go to heaven. Graham doesn't say anything against 'Salvation through Jesus.' Anyone who is SAVED is saved BY Jesus. How this is done?- if 'we' don't hear these non-christians profession of 'Jesus is Lord', is the question. Which we may not know until we go to Heaven. It is enough for me to know that Jesus is Merciful and Loving to ALL!

Billy Graham has lead more people to the Lord by accident than most of us ever thought about.
I just guess that Jesus was a fence rider also. Look at the people He associated with.
Now, All people are going to Heaven.. Just not all are staying. Remember the Great White Throne Judgement?
---Elder on 5/5/08


He has always been a fence rider.

One day as I was reading some nasty stuff about Pat Roberson ,whom I was certain was a man of God. So I got up went into the livingroom and I asked Jesus, isn't anyone out there called by you to preach? And God said back to me,"Well, don't you start pointing fingers". End of quote. Only the unbelievers starts all of this evil gossip. Although, "they do not think they will be punished, they will be".
---catherine on 5/8/07


In the first place he is a man of God and I am scared to talk against him. I do not believe that he said it.And anyone that dies without Christ is going to go to hell. Bite the dust. It's dry.

Don't know about Mr Graham. Have heard of him for many years. Don't follow him much. I often wondered if he tried to get some of these leaders /presidents saved, that he rubs shoulders with in the white house, and on the golf courses ,where they like to meet and play. Just been wondering about this for a very long time. We are to be soul winners for Christ. We are never off duty. Does not matter where one receives Jesus.

The Savior said "If ye say ye have no sin, ye deceive yourselves and the truth is not in you." To say all sinners are automatically shut out of God's kingdom is both false and arrogant. hence repentence. God is no respector of persons and knows everyones hearts. There are many with no religious affiliations that live their lives as better examples of Jesus Christ than 99 percent of born again christians. why? they don't judge everyone as below them through arrogance and self righteousness.

Over 35 years ago my father told me Billy Graham will fly any flag to get to port. Since that time Mr. Graham's stand on biblical truths has continued to erode. Billy Graham has made the open statement that Islam is a peaceful religion! Certainly we want to be fair here,and age may be the greatest present problem. But Billy has never been firm in his convictions reason being; he likes to rub elbows with the rich and powerful.
---mima on 5/7/07


Um I think you all need to actually tell us when and where you heard this. Because you are knocking a man that has clearly said the exact oposite all of his life. (some of his staff or partners might have but I seriously doubt Billy Graham himself said this)

I have read some of the statements about Billy Graham and, if they are true, I am really saddened by these. However, when I have heard Billy Graham (and his daughter Anne) for myself, there has been absolutely no doubt that their message is that 'We are Saved by Grace' and that 'Jesus is the Only Way'and 'hell awaits the lost'. I have read much about his son Franklin also and his message seems to be in line with his father and sister also.
---f.f. on 8/11/06


Can you document this statement that Billy Graham said this? It' really amazing how what can be said is often taken out of context. Based on Scripture, ONLY by acknowleging Christ as Savior. If there is another way, the Bible does't mention this.
---wivv on 8/10/06


There is only one God and one faith. Either you have God or you don't, either you have faith or don't. There is no other God, and sinner (some call non christians) will not go to heaven. It doesn't matter if Billy Graham says this, a sinner won't go to heaven.
