Billy Graham's Salvation Belief

Does Billy Graham believe that Jesus is not the only way to the Father? I have heard that Billy Graham has stated something that indicates a person did not have to believe or even know the name of Jesus Christ to be saved. It was a TV interview with Billy Graham and Robert Schuller.

I'm truly sorry for all us christians who are readily and easily quick to ridicule a man. Let us pray for each other. So that all members of the Body of Christ may bring fruit. If we hurt members in the body we become partakers of the enemies work. Please brothers let us not bring each other down. How can a man be so angry when this man has brought so many to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

Donna I know Billy Graham at one point did have a true ministry ...his position has gradually changed over the years ...a soft approach that doesn't say much ...only has him saying much

many are watering down Gods Truth for profits today ...Apostles did not preach to be heard ...I think any man can be swept away by the size of their ministry forgetting Truth to appease the masses

what I see as the end of this age is closing is the prophecy by Christ of MANY false ministers and MANY would come in his name time when the two witnesses begin preaching Gods Truth MANY will look the other way because of the confusion foretold in prophecy is easy to see how that will happen now
---Rhonda on 3/12/09

Billy Graham is completely deceived , he approved of his daughter preaching even though those verses say otherwise , 1corinthians 14:34-35 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak, but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
---eddy on 3/12/09


Evangelists often speak at stadiums. Many people give their lives to Jesus and it would not be possible to baptize all of them on the spot.

There are two main camps, one that puts too little emphasis on water baptism, one that puts too much. Jesus said you must be born again, He used the example of wind, which you can't see, but you can see it's power. In the same way, when you're born again you receive the Holy Spirit and your sins are forgiven. This happens internally, so water baptism is the outward expression of what God has done.

Bottom line is if a person is baptized but there is no genuine repentance, he does not receive the Holy Spirit and his sins are not forgiven, he's just getting wet.
---Laurie on 3/10/09

Rhonda-- Shueller, Olsteen...I have to agree.
They want people to feel good about themselves.

But how much did you ever listen to Billy Graham's sermons? He was not the same type. When he preached, he wanted people to know they are sinners...and let them know what to do about it. (His public statements in later years did make him sound quite liberal, but in his ministry of many years, long before the others, he was very fundamental)
---Donna66 on 3/9/09

Grahams, Schuller's, Olsteen's etc "simple" message is PROFITS in name of The Eternal ....MANY duped by their charismatic personalities earning millions in Gods name without preaching Word of God

where does it say "preach" to touch people's hearts, watered down truth, simple candy coated message so simpleton's of world understand

...Apostles did not preach to be heard they preached Gods Truth

...Gods Word is clear HE CALLS and HIS Holy Spirit TEACHES and imparts understanding ...dumbing down Gods Word with simple message deception so thick even non-evangelists are duped just because these FALSE ministers profess Christ on their lips ...Christ says these men are NONE of HIS Matt 15:8-9
---Rhonda on 3/8/09

Ramon: That is really odd. I always thought that Billy Graham had a solid message and anointing as an evangelist. I have never heard anyone say what you say.
---jody on 3/7/09

Billy Graham is a member of a long list of evangelists who attempted to "revive" the Belief in God for this country, the United States, as well as for the world. Their method of revival was through Spiritual attack. People will be drawn to the one who attacks them in order to appease the attacker. The name Jesus is not the name of the Messiah. His God-given name was a Hebrew name, Yeshua. Jesus was a name given to Him by a man, not God. The statement that a person doesn't have to know the name Jesus is a True Statement. Yeshua shows Himself to his people through their hearts and speaks to them on a Spiritual level. A person can be Saved of God and never have heard the name Jesus. Mr Graham was Correct.
---Sarah on 3/7/09


I understand what you're saying, but that does not change the fact not only Billy Graham, but most all "churches" do NOT teach baptism as a requirement. So, if Billy relies on others to present the actual "born again" salvation of Jesus... what does that speak about him? I doubt Paul sent the "new believers" at Corinth off to the church at Philadephia for baptism.

I know what the "Statements of Faith" are, from Billy, and virtually all others - baptism is not a requirement. How is this reconciled with the commandments of Jesus and His apostles, which are explicitly contrary to that "false doctrine"? Does "born again" salvation not matter anymore?
---BruceB on 3/6/09


Billy Graham is first and foremost an evangelist. As such, he's not going to focus a lot on doctrinal issues.

Evangelists, when speaking to large crowds, typically give a simple message designed to draw people to Jesus Christ. They're not going to spend a lot of time talking about everything YOU have to do, but what JESUS has done for you. Usually there are people available to speak to and pray with individuals who are making a commitment to Jesus at the end of the message, at which time they are encouraged to find a local church, read their Bibles, pray, etc.

Their local church will take care of guiding them thru the salvation process and start teaching them about Christian living.
---Laurie on 3/6/09


"Some people don't have a good understanding of the part water baptism plays in salvation."

As I cited:

Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily [truthfully], verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

I can't read where He says... might not enter.

Anyone is free to choose whatever they wish to believe. That doesn't mean I'm judging them. I've told them the truth and it's their call: and I don't have to answer to God... for thier blood. Yeah, I'm selfish. But, I'm gettin' better. At least my motives are. There was a time I would not have spoken the truth... just like Billy.
---BruceB on 3/5/09

Some people don't have a good understanding of the part water baptism plays in salvation. Because of that, they are quick to judge anyone who doesn't have the same understanding they do. Baptism is something we do out of obedience, I don't think anyone disagrees with that, even Billy Graham.

HaHa, Bruce, you're a funny guy...not. Jesus wasn't talking about teaching when He spoke about being hated by all.
---Laurie on 3/5/09

BruceB -- Billy Graham did not believe salvation is obtained by baptism...but rather by faith alone. After accepting Jesus as personal Savior, Billy did not care what denomination a person chose. I'm sure many, after hearing Billy, were baptized in the church of their choice.
---Donna66 on 3/4/09

Alan UK,

I'd buy that... IF he didn't preach/teach that baptism if NOT required, which is exactly what he preaches/teaches. You don't have to believe me: you can read it for yourself on his website.

This is contrary to the Word of God (as I previously cited) and, therefore, it's the teaching of a false gospel of salvation.
---BruceB on 3/4/09

No, Billy Graham did not baptise.

His mission was to touch people's hearts, and send them home to their local Christian community so that there they could learn more, and then be baptised
---alan8856_of_UK on 3/4/09


He's a false teacher if he's teaching a false doctrine of salvation, which he is. Billy makes it perfectly clear that "baptism" is not required: contrary to the Word of God.

They will hate you for his name -- if you teach the truth. Why do you think they hated Jesus... because of the way He parted His hair?
---BruceB on 3/4/09

Sometimes I wonder if some people don't intentionally try to be as obnoxious in sharing their beliefs as possible so that when they're "hated by all for His name's sake" they can convince themselves that's proof they're the real deal.

In Matt. 10, when Jesus speaks of being "hated by all", He's talking about all those who hate HIM, which would not include Christians. To imply that because there are people who don't hate Billy Graham that means he must be a false teacher is ridiculous.
---Laurie on 3/3/09


As far as I know, Billy Graham never once baptized anyone: and further, he made it clear in his "ministry" that baptism was not a requirement of salvation.

Of course, Jesus had a different idea:

Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Paul, the quintesential "evangelist" states:

Ro 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

I'll leave it to you, and the Holy Spirit, to decide who preached the truth.
---BruceB on 3/3/09

I'm old enough to remember Billy Graham in the early years of his ministry. His doctrine, since then, seems have changed quite a bit in some areas.

However,he has led thousands to the Lord...and a great many of those have flourished and grown and served as authentic Christians.

Billy G was never known as a great student of or purveyer of doctrine. He had the gift of an Evangelist and had a powerful ministry as such.
Now that he's 90 yrs old and out of public life, I think this a moot point. Watch his son Franklin and his daugter Ruth in their ministries and see what THEY believe.
---Donna66 on 3/2/09


2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

God didn't say you should listen to those who preach contrary to the "Word" of God jsut because it sounds good, did He?

All you need do is read God's Word (and pray for its meaning) and that should tell you what you need to know about any "man of God."

That's why He left us that Book: so we would have His teachings to compare against, so we didn't have to rely on man.
---BruceB on 3/2/09

There's really a rather simple test:

Mt 10:21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my names sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Ever known anyone who hated Billy Graham for the name, Jesus? In view of Jesus' own words, ya gotta ask yourself "why not?". That's the key question and the answers are simple, if you compare Billy's teachings against the Bible.
---BruceB on 2/28/09

Catherine I believe by reading Dr. Cathy Burns book you might possibly be enlightened.
---mima on 2/25/09

When will people ever stop listening to the devil? Billy Graham don't believe no such thing, as there being more than one-way to heaven than through the Blood. I almost became like all of you people in pointing fingers at God's preachers. He told me not to point fingers. He said exactly to me and I quote God, "Well, don't you start pointing fingers". End of quote. Just because I was reading some things about Pat Roberson on the internet [Him being a false preacher]. I asked God, "Don't you have any God called preachers at all out there in the world"? And that was God's response back to me.>>>I ask questions and listen for His answers. Only that time I didn't really expect an answer. Got one anyways.
---catherine on 2/25/09

We have some devoted intellectuals that are devoted too fact-finding. I ordered a book and read it, and I believe the author's name is Cathy Burns. In this book she detailed Billy Graham's Ministry and his Associated friends. I found the book shocking, revealing and very heavily indexed and referenced.---- All that glitters is not gold!!!!!!

Billy Graham has a greatly faulted Gospel and idea of why Jesus was born, had died and rose again. I have seen this "I heard" video of BG stating these things. A faulted Gospel is no Gospel at all. Its poison to the soul. If you want the true Gospel try to YouTube "Paul Washer + true Gospel".

If any Christian needs to know the relationship Graham had with the Catholic Church all one would need to do is do a search of "Billy Graham" and "the pope." You'll find how Graham praised the Catholic Church many times and how he was quoted in Parade Magazine, "I fully adhere to the fundamental tenets of the Christian faith for myself and my ministry, but as an American, I respect other paths to God." He also believed in ecumenism which include Islam and Buddism.

Mark, interpretation of the Word of God is crucial. It's not what we want it to mean but what God wanted it to mean. When someone say's that God wants to save the whole world but cannot because man would let Him, because he has free will, is proposterous. First of all God is Sovereign. Second, if you say God wants to save everyone and cannot, God becomes enslave to sin. Can you not see that?
---mark on 9/2/07

#2. Mark: It's easy to use such words as that God is trying His best but cannot or is limited by man, makes Him enslave to sin, since man while lost is completely sinful. Man is enslaved to sin, not God. How in the world can God be enslave to anything He created? Jesus told his diciples, that to them it was given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but that to others it was not given." Think about it Mark. I believe before people use a phrase they have to be very careful.
