Billy had the gift of an Evangelist. His role was not founding churches, not that of a pastor, but spreading the Gospel to as many people who would hear him.

Ephesians 4:10-12 (King James Version)

10He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

11And he gave some, apostles, and some, prophets, and some, evangelists, and some, pastors and teachers,

12For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

What would an apostle do. They would move to an area for a few years, establish a church, disciple the people, and ordain bishops and workers. Later, they would do the same thing somewhere else. On occasion, they would visit, send an associate to, or a letter to, those cities again. Despite persecution, Christ's Church grew phenomenally. $100,000,000 a year supporting Missionaries will do more for the Kingdom, than the same amount supporting B.G.E.A.
Matthew 10:1, 8, 28:19-20, Mark 16:17-18, Luke 9:1, 10:8-9, John 14:12-14, Ephesians 4:11-13, 2Timothy 4:1-5.

Glenn says: >>>>>Neither Jesus, nor the Apostles, passed on their responsibilities to others though.<<<<

The Bible says:

2 Timothy 2:2
And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

Who is right? Glenn or the Bible?
---Cluny on 9/10/09


>>>>>Neither Jesus, nor the Apostles, passed on their responsibilities to others though.<<<<

What did Jesus tell His disciples? (Jhn 20:21) Then said Jesus to them again, Peace [be] unto you: as [my] Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

Jhn 15:27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

Even when Jesus left for His Heavenly home,He sent Someone to "follow up".

Jhn 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

A new convert needs prompt follow up, teaching and discipling. Isn't this a function of the local church?
---Donna66 on 9/10/09

Mark V>>> said it well! When God wants to save a person He will save a person!
---catherine on 9/10/09

It never the person who saves, it is God who saves. When God wants to save people He will save them. Whether one or a hundred at a time. And they will be saved since it is He who changes the heart of the lost. Even in the times in the early church, God was always saving a remnant for Himself. The actions of Billy Graham did not stop God from saving who He so wanted to save.
While Billy Graham might not have been solidly grounded in the later years as many here say, he accomplished what God wanted him to accomplish. No more, no less. And to God the glory.
---MarkV. on 9/10/09

Rhonda you are confusing Islam and Christianity with Muslims and Christians.

The Koran commands extreme violence against those who leave Isalm, and those who will not convert. See Surah 8:49, 47:4, 9:123, 8:67, 8:39.

Peaceful Muslims are those who ignore these commands.

Conversely Jesus commands, commit no murder, and love and pray for your enemies.

Violent 'Christians' ignore Jesus commands. Are they then Christian?

Islamic terrorists are those who obey the Koranic commands.

The claim Islam is a peaceful religion is contradicted by the Koran and by the world-wide, daily, murder and violence committed by Muslims.

Not all Muslims are terrorists but almost all terrorists are Muslim.

This blog has been running since 2005 and I expect it could run on... way past Billy's death, which could be any time.

According to Wikipedia, Billy Graham has preached Christianity to live audiences of nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories, also reached hundreds of millions more through television, video, film, and webcasts. Most heard him during the time he taught a strong Gospel message.

He is now 91 years old, has Parkinson's and a shunt in his brain... Seems to me a bit late to be judging him. He'll stand before His Judge soon enough.
---Donna66 on 9/9/09

Example, after 9/11 and publicly stated that Islam was a peaceful religion!!!!! Even his own son rebuked him for saying this.

Islam is a peaceful religion ...just like any RELIGION which is from man NOT God one could look at rcc and the FORCE it used during several hundred years its anti-jew blood thirst killing machine it was and then claim all christians are not peaceful
---Rhonda on 9/9/09

Where did you get your figures? I can remember crusades where MANY more tha 5% stood. Generally they flocked to the front in sizable numbers. Of course, that was back in the day...late 50's, early 60's when he really preached the Gospel.
---Donna66 on 9/9/09

Generally, about 5% of the people at one of his crusades stood up to receive the Lord, and so your statistic would be one in 2,000. On average, most ministers can do better than that, and for less than several thousand dollars per genuine salvation. "BG always prepared and relied on local churches for follow-up". The organization did a better job of preparation after they received many complaints. Neither Jesus, nor the Apostles, passed on their responsibilities to others though.
1Corinthians 9:24-27, 1Timothy 6:11-12, 2Timothy 4:7-8, James 1:8, 4:8, Revelations 3:15-18.

My father alerted me to Billy Graham many years ago. After seeing Billy Graham preach in some churches he was preaching in my father said," apparently Billy has made a deal with someone otherwise he would not be accepted in those churches.
Several years later (20years) I made a detailed study of Billy Graham, his writings, and what he believes. Do this and you will find that he is on shaky ground in virtually every area. Example, after 9/11 and publicly stated that Islam was a peaceful religion!!!!! Even his own son rebuked him for saying this.
---mima on 9/9/09

#1 More importantly we follow the commandments of God and believe in the testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are to bring the those who have not heard the gospel to the multitude. The church is suppose remain in the truth. But all and all the builder is our Lord Jesus Christ lest anyone boast. It is not of our work that brings us to salvation but in our faith in our Lord to deliver us onto salvation. My friend let us ask for mercy in according to his word and that he may bring us up in the truth.
---john_camping on 9/9/09

Glenn -- I know why you speak of "two Billie Grahams". People who have only heard him the last 20 yrs. would assume he was just another modernist. They don't know that for about 30 yrs prior to that, he preached the Gospel truly, simply and powerfully. But he is not, and has never been, just another tele-evangelist. The financial status of his organization is available to all!

He has probably preached to more people over the years than any human alive. His audiences always ran into the thousands (not counting those who heard him on radio or TV.) Ten faithful believers per thousand hearers doesn't sound bad to me. (Who do you know who does better?). BG always prepared and relied on local churches for follow-up. Most provide none.
---Donna66 on 9/8/09

Which one? The early Billy Graham preaching the gospel and speaking against Islam, Roman Catholicism, and Socialism. Or the later one preaching ecumenicism / inclusivism / universalism and proposing the same. A year after some of his crusades, the rate of people who were walking with the Lord after standing up to 'receive' Jesus, was less than 1%. It would have been more efficient to send 500 missionaries and pastors a couple of thousand dollars each.
1Corinthians 1:18-24, 2:1-16, 9:23-27, Philippians 3:18-19.

Billy Graham like, B Hinn - J Meyer - J Falwell - P White - Marilyn & Sarah even others on tv-radio etc teach some Bible Truths from the Old-Testament in relating to the New-Testament. False teachings, False salvation teachings they do Are, easy beleivism, repeat aft me, no works salvation, say the sinners prayer,
the Father-Son & Holy spirit baptism, because there is No one found in scriptures that was litteraly baptized that way. The man constantine when he embraced a type of christianity devised r-catholocism the first trin-church started All of this. Because he did Not want to line up to The Truth of God's Word & His Church being born on the day of Pentecost according to Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt 28 v's 19-20.

Yes, Strongaxe, this is how his campaigns were held. He always encouraged people to join, or remain in, their local church and become a Christian in their own community. One other, important, point that marked him out as different from many televangelists of today was that he did not encourage huge donations. In fact, I am not aware that he made money a big issue at all. Money was raised locally before he came to pay for the campaigns.
---RitaH on 2/20/08

Shirley, why preach only part of the gospel to 1000s, not bringing them into submission to all that Christ commanded? Jesus says, "He that believes and is baptized will be saved." Peter says "baptism now saves you." What does Shirley and Billy Graham say? Acts 16,after hearing the word they were baptized-at Midnight! Shirley, don't follow the myth that one can be saved without obeying Christ'commands. What if Noah said "Lord you can save me without building that ark."
---Tom on 2/19/08

Billy Graham is probably the best well known mainstream American protestant evanglist of the 20th century.

Unlike all the popular televanglists, who generally develop cult followings and constantly beg for money for their own ministries, Graham would occasionally hold crusades in different cities or on television, and then funnel people into local ministries in their own cities, rather than his own personality cult (much as the new testament Apostles did).
---StrongAxe on 2/19/08

Whoa up there.I watched the Billy Graham revivals on TV years ago and I distinctly remember him at the end saying to go to a local church and be baptized and join the church.It was also in a little booklet he sent to new converts.You don't know what you're talking about.

Graham doesn't practice or preach the gospel of Christ to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son,the Holy Spirit,and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded." Every conversion account in the book of Acts includes all of the requisites of our Lord's command. Graham conveniently deletes baptism. The apostles baptized 3000. Graham? Not one of his many thousands! Not essential for salvation? Tell Christ his command is a work!
---tom on 2/18/08

Billy Graham has given his life to the ministry of God and leading others to salvation in Jesus. He teaches truth & nothing but the truth! He teaches straight from the Bible and then steps back to let the Holy Spirit do the work in people's hearts.
---Marilee on 2/10/08

R.W., the ecumenical movement strives to get past our Christian differences that human pride struggles against. Is this a bad thing. If not ecumenical than what. Propose your "truth" and I will find a thousand variations between Protestants and Catholics alike. This Catholic for one appreciates the work of this holy man of God. He is in the business of saving souls while you seem to be in the business of condemning them.

The United Nations have been using the word "Ecumenical" to mean ALL religions including Christian, Catholic, Budist, Islam, and a few other major religions under the organization of UN United Religions Organization.
---Steven on 8/18/06

Moderator ... Yes we have been talking at cross puroses, I have never heard the word ecumenical used except with regard to Christian churches. I've looked on the Web, and similarly the only reference are Christian (but I have not scanned all 766,000 entries!) The only way in which you & I would differ is that you would exclude RC and presumably Orthodox from the definition of Christian, whereas I would not, since they do acknowledge salvation through Christ, although with unBiblical add-ons.
---alan8869_of_UK on 8/18/06

This what I found in my dictionary. Ecumenical - adjective (a) Of or relating to the worldwide Christian church. (b). Concerned with establishing or promoting unity among churches or religions. Ecumenicalism - noun - the doctrine of the ecumenical movement that promotes co-operation and better understanding among different religious denominations: aimed at universal Christian unity.
---emg on 8/18/06

Moderator ...# This very CN site demonstrates this? We argue about small matters: how we are saved (predestination or free-will) or which day to worship or whether to tithe. But we are united in believing that Jesus saved us.
And we here just reflect the entire Christian world ... one central Faith in Jesus, with small differences sadly separating us. Going back to the mathematical terms, I would suggest that that central Faith is the Highest Common Factor, not the Lowest Common Denominator.

Moderator - Yes, faith is the highest ground and yes the minor differences aren't what makes or not makes a Christian. Ecumenical is the coming together of all faiths including Hindus, Muslims, Praying to Mary, etc. - these religions don't have the same believe system as Christians. I think possibly you don't understand what the word means which is why the confusion between our blogging?

Moderator ...# 1 The use of these mathematical terms is perhaps not the most appropriate for such discussions.
You seem to say that getting together with Christians from other denominations would be negative (the words lowest denominator imply that) I suggest that the Faith in Jesus which unites us is a high (the highest?) factor. ... (cont)<
---alan8869_of_UK on 8/18/06

This is were you are judging a person. If he or she doesn't teach what is already by guidance of the Bible, it is false. No man or woman on earth is teaching 100% of Bible truth. And the handful of people in the world who ARE teaching 100% of the truth are condemned by most Christians much like the two witnesses in Revelation.
---Steven on 8/17/06

Moderator ... you yourself said "Ecumenical would say lets all come together because we are all Christians and the belief system goes to the lowest denominator of beliefs"
Surely, the common belief between all Christians would be Faith in the Saving Sacrifice of Jesus, & I suggested that was a pretty High Common Factor. I'm sorry if you think that is a silly comment.

Moderator - Lowest common denominator in the context is a negative phrase not positive, thereby making your comment a nonconstructive remark for serious discussions.
---alan8869_of_UK on 8/17/06

Moderator ... Do you say that the Christian's Faith in the Saving sacrifice of Jesus is the lowest coomon denominator?
I would have placed it pretty high up on the scale.

Moderator - Why do you make up a statement and then give me credit for your silly comments? Normally I just delete these things, but thought maybe you don't know what you are doing and wanted to point it out?

Depends on how you define ecumenical. If it means good people of different faiths working together for society, food banks,working with law enforcement, working jointly against porn, boy scouts,(thats me)then count me as Ecumenical. If Ecumenical means ANY 'church' compromising autonomy in ANY way docternally to 'big groups,' that's wrong. A prime example,the World council of Church's which I find a noxious organization, void of anything Christion.-If thats ecumenicalism, I have no use for it.

Moderator said sometime ago "Ecumenical would say lets all come together because we are all Christians and the belief system goes to the lowest denominator of beliefs"

Glory; There were forms of the bible long before KJV. The Bible itself quotes a dozen other book, books no longer in the bible. My only point that compared with all the whacked telvangelist and kooks Billy Graham is a decent, upright man, and America is a better place due to people like him. I am not now, nor do I plan to ever be Catholic, but I believe John Paul was a decent, upright man, and the world is better due to him as well; as yes there have been many whacked and kooky Popes as well.

The Bible warns us that we will know whether a person is "of God" if they love Him and obey His commandments. Billy Graham has preached, to the best of his human ability and the grace of God enabling, a simple gospel message to repent of your sins and believe on the work of Jesus on the cross to obtain salvation. This is what John the Baptist, Jesus and His disciples did. Are you questioning the truth of the King James Version of the Bible or Billy Graham who preached it?
---glory77 on 8/11/06

Mr. Graham is a Great American. Through I may not agree with his theology he has done much to 'calm the waters' in American religious circles. He has consistantly resisted becoming involved with the religious right or their political antics. He has consistantly remained focused on a message of salvation, and lived a moral lifestyle. America has been a better country because or Mr. Graham.

I hope that clarifies my intent and position.

[4] This is manifestly important as it relates to the doctrine of salvation and the hope upon which fallen man clings to. Billy is a very influential and well-loved religious icon of our day. Even if this is just a single interview his words do (and probably have) multiply and spread rapidly. This makes it all the more important to be rigorous in understanding what he is actually saying because lots of people can be potentially misled and sidetracked in their search for salvation.

An "ecumenical council" brought representatives from all over the empire, as opposed to a metropolitan or provincial council, which brought representatives only from a limited region.

---Dottie on 8/10/06

I believe him to be an honest man of God. I think he has retired now, he has Parkinsons and some other ailments.
His ministry always seemed to me to be one of bringing people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
He has been the minister called in by several Presidents when they needed guidance.
