The Unbiblical and Blind Leadership of Billy Graham
(A true friend of the Roman Catholic Church)

The following piece of writing is taken from a question and answer section titled, 'My Answer by Billy Graham' on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website.

Q: I know God forgave my sins when I asked Jesus to come into my life a few months ago, but what happens if I sin again? I'm trying to stay on the right path, but if I commit a sin in the future, does this mean I'm no longer saved? I worry about this. - D.McD.

A: Dear D. McD.,
The devil's primary goal is to keep us away from Christ - but if we do give our lives to Him, the devil will still try to fill us with doubt and fear. And one of his oldest tricks is to get us to doubt our salvation.

The bible is clear: Once we truly give our lives to Jesus Christ and trust Him alone for our salvation, God cleanses us from all our sins and makes us members of His family forever. The bible says, "The blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). If we lost our salvation every time we sinned, then we'd lose our salvation every day - because we sin every day. We may not even be aware of our sins, but an impure thought or an unkind word is sin in God's eyes.

The key is to remember this: Your salvation does not depend on you, but on Christ. If it depended on you, you could never be saved, because you are never good enough. But your salvation depends solely on Christ and what He did for you on the cross.

Sin is still serious, however; when we sin, we hurt our fellowship with God. But we are still His children if we know Christ and nothing "will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:39). (Sample only)
● Commentary:

While part of what Billy Graham wrote was true, it was still not the full counsel of Lord Jesus, which is what the person asking the question needed to hear. Why did Billy Graham not inform the person that if Christians sin, they must confess their known sins to God? Then after a believer's confession of repentance, Lord Jesus will forgive them because Lord Jesus is just and faithful. However, if Christians try to hide their known sin and do not confess it to God, they are liars and self deceived, and they make out that God is a liar, but God/Lord Jesus who never lies will be angry with them, as He is righteous and true (ref: 1 John 1:7-10). If Christians do not repent of known sins, they will later suffer the pain of eternal hell fire. What did James say?.......James 5:19, 20.

Billy Graham is another who believes and teaches Once Saved Always Saved (OSAS) doctrine/teaching. Graham thinks that once people are 'genuinely saved' that they cannot later lose their salvation; however the truth is that born again Christians can later lose (forfeit) their salvation if they choose to continually live in known sin including the sins of backsliding and apostasy and they do not repent of these. Ref: Romans 11:20-22, Hebrews 5:9, Hebrews

Billy Graham wrote that people's salvation does not depend on them. The truth is, born again Christians must do the actions of living a self sacrificial and holy life by committing themselves fully to obeying the teaching and commandments of Lord Jesus (ref: Romans 12:1, 2). True Christians need to serve Lord Jesus as He leads for the rest of their days, which is evidence of their gratitude to the Lord Jesus and of their conduct befitting of repentance. True Christians are saved by grace through faith. Though both the faith and the grace are given to them by God, Christians still need to actively demonstrate their living faith and loyalty to Lord Jesus by obeying His New Testament commandments. And what did St. Paul say to Timothy?.....1 Timothy 4:16.

Billy Graham taught that nothing will be able to separate God's children from His love and that people are children of God if they know Christ. Remember that Judas Iscariot, Ananias and Sapphira knew Christ Jesus, but they still forfeited their salvation by committing sins and by being clearly unfaithful to Lord Jesus. In the world, not all children are loyal or grateful to their parents. If children of God continue their unfaithfulness toward God/Lord Jesus and they do not repent, God will destroy them in His righteous anger, and they would then suffer eternal pain and torment in hell. However, Billy Graham being a popular veteran member of Christendom did not want to upset the person that wrote to Him and did not give them a fiery warning about the severity of Lord Jesus' righteous judgments towards the unrepentant, saved and unsaved....1 Thessalonians 1:8.

Beware of false leaders and false teachers. There are much larger numbers of false people compared to the number of truly loyal saints in this world (ref: Matthew 7:13-20). You can know a person by their character, and you can know a false leader and false teacher by testing their teaching by comparing it with scripture hence discovering their false teaching and false
