A Jesuit Evangelist
[Jesuit are messengers of satan with many false gospels. Here’s an easy example.]
Hello brothers and sisters in Christ (and fellow prayer partners), (December 2019)
The words “evangelist” and “gospel” get used a lot and in a variety of ways. But, as you likely already know, not everyone who uses either or both of those words are using the same definitions as the Bible. Pretty often, those definitions are complete opposites - one is found in the Bible, the other in satan’s imagination and deception. To illustrate this and kind of bring it home, let us start by looking at some quotes from a rather famous Jesuit speaker and see if you can identify him. As you read these, keep in mind, that this is a modern example of a Jesuit “evangelist”, in his own words. So, let’s start with some of his quotes.
“You're born. You suffer. You die. Fortunately, there's a loophole.”
“We are the Bibles the world is reading; We are the creeds the world is needing; We are the sermons the world is heeding.”
“If we had more hell in the pulpit, we would have less hell in the pew.”
“Tears shed for self are tears of weakness, but tears shed for others are a sign of strength.”
“Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness.”
“World events are moving very rapidly now. I pick up the Bible in one hand, and I pick up the newspaper in the other. And I read almost the same words in the newspaper as I read in the Bible. It’s being fulfilled every day round about us.”
“It is the Holy Spirit's job to convict, God's job to judge and my job to love.”
“When we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of God.”
“Quit beating yourself up. We all live under grace and do the best we can.”
“Jesus said... I’m the only way to permanent peace, I’m the only way to permanent joy, I’m the only way to eternal life, I’m the only way to forgiveness of sin, I’m the only way to the Father.”
“God will prepare everything for our perfect happiness in heaven, and if it takes my dog being there, I believe he'll be there.”
“Remember: When God sent His Son into the world, He gave Him a mother—the Virgin Mary. He did so because He knew Jesus would need the protection and love she could give. Because of Mary’s motherly care, “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52).”
“I think that hell essentially is separation from God forever. And that is the worst hell that I can think of. But I think people have a hard time believing God is going to allow people to burn in literal fire forever. I think the fire that is mentioned in the Bible is a burning thirst for God that can never be quenched.”
“The most prominent place in hell is reserved for those who are neutral on the great issues of life.”
“The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless”
“The message I preach hasn't changed. Circumstances have changed. Problems have changed, but deep inside man has not changed, and the gospel hasn't changed.”
> Sources: random quotes from various sources, books he wrote and messages he preached.
Anyone recognize him yet? No. How about this publicly televised sermon just after 9/11/01.
“I’ve become an old man now. And I’ve preached all over the world. And the older I get, the more I cling to that hope that I started with many years ago, and proclaimed it in many languages to many parts of the world…
The cross tells us that God understands our sin and our suffering, for he took them upon himself in the Person of Jesus Christ. From the cross God declares, 'I love you. I know the heartaches and the sorrows and the pain that you feel. But I love you.'
The story does not end with the cross, for Easter points us beyond the tragedy of the cross to the empty tomb. It tells us that there is hope for eternal life, for Christ has conquered evil and death and hell. Yes, there is hope.”
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
Just as I am.
All is grace.”
“Just as I am. All is grace”… That’s a clever way to sell a cheap false gospel. As many of us know, with something big and flashy and appealing to everyone, people come as they are and leave as they came – lost. There is a vast different between “almost saved” (lost) and genuinely saved according to Jesus. And, by now some you recognize the person by one of his signature phrases and the hymn that he became known for “Just As I Am”. Yes, indeed, that man who said all of those things (and many more in the quotes below) is none other than the late Billy Graham. Billy, the famous guy who many in America think was “America’s Pastor”, and who is/was also known worldwide as being a “renowned evangelist”, and known for his supposedly only-Christian-focused “Crusades”.
A closer look reveals a completely different story than the official published one…
But if you look closer at any detail, including those clever quotes you read above, you quickly realize there’s something amiss. You see, even in the so-called “gospel” presentations that he gave and the so-called millions he “led to Christ”, some put their faith in Jesus, but many did not. For those who knew most of the pieces of the gospel Jesus taught, God used the general call of salvation to cause them to make a covenant with Christ for salvation. But for those who put their faith in Billy’s false gospel, they are still lost, unless they found the truth of the Bible beyond Billy’s false gospel.
Now some people would like to stop me here and say – Wait, what are you talking about? What false gospel? Good question. For those of you who have ever heard a broadcast or replay of any “crusade” of Billy’s, you may vaguely remember words like this – “Come to Jesus. He’ll heal your marriage. He’ll solve your poverty. He’ll give you new health.” You see if you go back and look at what Billy actually said, you will quickly realize that he didn’t say come to Jesus to be saved from your sins – period. No, Billy was trying to draw people to come forward to make himself look good, big, and spiritual – so he called people forward to get whatever their heart desired. Only those who knew the Bible – for it was taught much better in the mid-1900s than it is now – only they understood the true gospel and got saved – because of the Holy Spirit talking to their soul, and them committing their lives to Christ. Not because of a false teacher with slick words and few Bible quotes who became a 33rd degree mason in 1966 in the prestigious Washington DC lodge, and before that was trained by some of the highest Jesuit leaders and became a part of that Jesuit team in Lausanne Switzerland – to conquer the world with a “god” we can all agree on, using whatever lukewarm translations of the Bible he could find to alter the definitions and understandings of Scripture, and Jesus’ own words.
What does this have to do with Jesuits or a false gospel? Great question. And for our answer, we can look at what Billy did. Billy Graham (and his family) was one of the most widely heard Jesuit crusader and so-called “evangelist” in modern history. To some who don’t know who all Billy Graham praised (including high-level Jesuits, satanist, NWO leaders, etc), they wouldn’t realize that Billy Graham wasn’t a “Catholic” leader, he was a Jesuit leader. You see, the Jesuits are the keepers of the mythologies. They are trained in how to use mythology to undermine the faith of honest Bible students and to turn them to believe in a universal “god”. Which is also why Billy Graham intentionally coerced Protestant and Catholic churches to work together for the crusades, while he made sure that if someone was a Catholic, they had to have a Catholic counselor. That is the trick of the Jesuits – come as you are, leave as you came, in your confusion and deception. Jesuit disguise themselves as messengers of “light”, but then do what God warned of false teachers – excusing sin, and making people twice the sons of Hell as themselves. And like many other Vatican leaders before him (Augustine, Xavier, Thomas Aquinas, Francis of Assisi), he loved mythology, and turning the Bible into fables to tickle itching ears. Do you want to see some more of his false teaching for yourself? Here, listen this and pay very close attention to those quotes. The second link is physical proof of what you already noticed in his quotes – Billy Graham loved reducing the Bible to good “stories”, and with a false gospel built on false definitions for a false “hope”.

You can find a lot of those kinds of non-specific ecumenical Chinese fortune-cookie-saying quotes and phrases from Billy Graham with any simple internet search. But if you do just a little more research, you start to see another side of Billy Graham – his Jesuit side, making Rome’s lies believable for all.
Did you know that Billy Graham also met with the “pope” John Paul II? Sure did. He met and talked with him more than once, and even had some very high-praise for the “pope”, and got high praise in return. They were both Jesuits, praising each other, just as Romans 1 says that false teachers and wicked leaders to and for each other.
“While he is most known for his work in the world of evangelical Christianity, Graham had significant contact with Pope John Paul II. And by an odd turn of events, Graham was preaching at the cathedral in Cracow, Poland the very day that Karol Wojtyla was elected pope in Rome in 1978.
In 1981, Billy Graham met the pope at his papal apartment in Rome. At the end of meeting John Paul ll reached over, grabbed Graham’s thumb, and told him, “We are brothers.”
Then in 1991, Graham met with John Paul II and Vatican officials to speak about Eastern Europe and relations between Catholics and evangelicals around the world. An official from the Vatican’s Peace and Justice Commission met with Graham, and there was discussion of relations between Protestants and Catholics in Latin America.
When the pope died in 2005 Billy Graham said in a statement,
“Pope John Paul II was unquestionably the most influential voice for morality and peace in the world during the last 100 years. His extraordinary gifts, his strong Catholic faith, and his experience of human tyranny and suffering in his native Poland all shaped him.
“In his own way, he saw himself as an evangelist, traveling far more than any other Pope to rally the faithful and call non-believers to commitment. He was convinced that the complex problems of our world are ultimately moral and spiritual in nature, and only Christ can set us free from the shackles of sin and greed and violence. His courage and perseverance in the face of advancing age and illness were an inspiration to millions — including me.”…”
Billy Graham and his team were and still do - try to blur people’s understanding of God’s Word on many subjects, including the very pagan practices they do, including pretending a perverted Catholic “priest” can change a cracker and grape juice (or wine) into the actual blood and body of Christ and to visual this piece of Jesus’ flesh and his blood being inside you every day for the rest of your life, and as often as you do it… and pretending that this evil practice is the same as what Jesus did.
“While churches differ in their understanding of the Lord’s Supper (or, as some churches call it, Communion or the Eucharist), they all realize its importance and seek to give it a central place in their worship. This has been true since the beginning of the Christian faith.
The reason is simple: Jesus told His disciples to celebrate it regularly until He comes again, just as He celebrated it with them shortly before His death. The Apostle Paul recorded that first Lord’s Supper this way: “The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me'” (1 Corinthians 11:23-24). In a similar way, Jesus gave them a cup of wine symbolizing His blood, “which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins” (Matthew 26:28)…”
Let’s review a few more of Billy’s quotes -
“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.”
January 1978 issue of McCall’s Magazine, the article entitled “I can’t play God anymore”.
“ ‘There are many things I don’t understand’ he [Billy] says. Billy does not believe that Christians need to take every verse of the Bible literally ; “sincere Christians”, he says, “can disagree about the details of Scripture and theology – absolutely.” “I’m not a literalist in the sense that every single jot and tittle is from the Lord,” Graham says. “This is a little difference in my thinking through the years.”
Billy Graham, Newsweek Magazine, August 15, 2006.
Here is another serious quote. Have you seen it? This is from a TV interview with Tony Snow. Billy speaking: “I'm not a righteous man. People put me up on a pedestal that I don't belong in my personal life. And they think that I'm better than I am. I'm not the good man that people think I am. Newspapers and magazines and television have made me out to be a saint. I'm not. I'm not a Mother Teresa. And I feel that very much”
-- That was a partially true statement, Billy Graham was definitely not living in a way that is pleasing to Christ, but “Mother Teresa” wasn’t either. For Billy, this is false humility that satanists do to prop up another evil leader and pretend to be “humble“. They’ve learned to say that to sound like us (honest followers of Jesus). Billy Graham was trying to prop up Vatican “saints” to be higher than fake Protestant evangelists like himself, while he considers himself more clever than true followers of Jesus, because he’s uniting the world (under a false gospel).
-- The truth about “Mother Teresa” is that she was using the funds to infiltrate India with Catholic “church” programs, influence and mythology, and Catholic buildings, not to help the poor. She was born and raised in Europe, and her real name was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, but was given a Catholic name when she was sent out as one of their agents. Agnes (“Teresa”) was well-known for teaching them that they should want to suffer in their current condition – poverty, illness, major injury, etc, while sending the extra money back to Rome. The Vatican pretends that their self-inflicted suffering helps pay for their sins, to finish what Jesus didn’t do.
The real story – from those in India
A few other details
As you are seeing, Billy Graham was one of the Vatican’s favorite and most believable speakers – to sell their lies and make them palatable. He wasn’t a Catholic – he was a Jesuit, skillfully using his carefully picked words to bring many under the domination of Rome again. The saddest part of all of this is that many people don’t yet realize that Billy’s broad wording was by means an accident – those were carefully picked words and honed speech to leave everyone comfortable with their own brand of “god” and he made sure that he had “counselors” for every religion who would talk to them and help them “find peace” with the false god they came with. Countless millions came as they were… and left as they were, because the speaker was a charlatan and circus ringmaster, who was indeed “putting on a show” despite Billy’s own denials. Billy was a one-world religion leader, masquerading as a “Protestant” evangelist. Many, including this team, have been helping people to see the proof of his masonry and Jesuit ties, false teachings, and activities. If all of this is a surprise for you, then the rest of the information in this article will help you see through the clever tricks and lies of other false teachers. Remember, if someone claims to be a leader for Jesus but intentionally deceives with another gospel than Jesus preached, God says he is cursed. Yes, Billy Graham is cursed and deep in Hell, awaiting the eternal Lake of Fire, according to Jesus in Luke 16 and other passages. God gave this warning in Galatians 1 -- “6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.  For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:6-10)
And speaking of quotes, there is another major one that you’ll want to read for yourself. As you know, Billy Graham had many friends – and many/most of them were some of the major religious and/or society leaders with very bad false teaching. Do you remember Robert Schuller? Yeah, the name-it, claim-it false teacher from back in the 1980s who died April 2015? You know, the guy who got the blessing of the “pope” John Paul II for his so-called “Crystal Cathedral”? Yeah, that one. By the way, did you hear that Robert Schuller’s “Crystal Cathedral” is now a Catholic “church”? But is anyone surprised?
Quick review of some of the false teachings of Robert Schuller
A Candid conversation
So, Robert Schuller had a conversation once with the Jesuit crusader and “evangelist” Billy Graham in 1997. Below is the conversation.
Tell me, what do you think is the future of Christianity?
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.
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?
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.
[R. S. trips over his tongue for a moment, his face beaming, then says] I'm so thrilled to hear you say this. There's a wideness in God's mercy.
There is. There definitely is.

Key quote from Billy’s own mouth, inspired by satan himself.
“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.”
“There’s a wideness in God’s mercy”… sounds like the title of a blasphemous hymn too – yes, the same name, but it’s wrong and very anti-Biblical.
Jesus answered this false teaching very plainly, and Billy could quote it, but he doesn’t believe it. “Jesus said to him, “I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6) Jesus also said: “13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it… 21Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:13-14,21-23) God says of Jesus: “… 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time…” (1st Timothy 2:4-6)
Jesus came for many reasons, but on the topic of salvation of the soul because of our willful rebellion against God, He came with only one – to save those who repent and form a covenant with Him from sin and its eternal consequences. Billy never got saved, proven by his blasphemies that you just saw above. But he said a lot more blasphemous things than that. You can find many of the in the very researched document in book form called “Billy Graham and His Friends” by Cathy Burns – it has over 1000 references in it, and many quotes. Billy Graham served the devil and Rome, yet few realize that, because they just stuck with the sound-bytes that sounded almost correct. Little lies erode souls.
Did you hear about this willful sexual adultery Billy’s grandson and his wife did, and then have been trying to force all honest followers of Jesus to accept perversion and stop holding God’s Word literally?
You see, the reason so many people haven’t seen through the lies or Jesuits like Billy Graham is for one of 3 reasons – 1) they didn’t listen to Billy Graham much, 2) they didn’t pay very close attention to double-check if Billy Graham was teaching accurately, or 3) they don’t know the gospel that Jesus taught. With that said, let us work to review a few more things about Billy Graham, to work to eliminate the problem of lack of information.
Jesuit Billy Graham trained at Wheaton and in Lausanne Switzerland, and led the first Lausanne Council with others in the 1940s. He then headed to California, when a Rome tapped an influential journalist leader to tell everyone to “puff graham”. That was how we all heard about this Jesuit-trained “crusader”.
For those who don’t know what the Lausanne Council (now called Lausanne Movement to hid previous info), here is the short info. “The Lausanne Covenant – (The history and false doctrine exposed) Billy Graham became widely known when he conducted a revival in downtown Los Angeles in 1949. "One of the best-known Christian evangelists of the 20th century, Billy Graham gained world attention in 1949 with a tent revival in downtown Los Angeles that was scheduled for three weeks and lasted six... Graham consulted and prayed with every U.S. president from Harry Truman to Barack Obama..."
“Billy also founded the un-Biblical and ecumenical council called the 'Lausanne Council' in 1974. The third Lausanne Council is to scheduled to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, 16-25 October 2010. "Dr. Billy Graham, serving as the honorary chairman of the congress, urged everyone in the audience to go from Lausanne and "do the work of an evangelist." He called for rededication and total commitment to the task ahead. In 1975, the U.S. Lausanne Committee formed as a part of the International Lausanne Movement..."
“In 1966 the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, in partnership with America’s Christianity Today magazine, sponsored the World Congress on Evangelism in Berlin. The Congress brought together 1,200 delegates from over 100 countries and inspired a number of follow-up conferences in places such as Singapore and Bogotá.
"Just a few years later, Graham perceived the need for a larger, more diverse congress to reframe the Christian mission of evangelization in a world rife with social, political, economic, and religious upheaval. He shared this idea with 100 world Christian leaders, and the affirmation of the need for such a Congress was overwhelmingly enthusiastic...
"In July 1974 some 2,700 participants and guests from over 150 nations gathered in the Swiss Alps for ten days of discussion, fellowship, worship and prayer. The Congress achieved an unprecedented diversity of nationalities, ethnicities, ages, occupations and denominational affiliations. In fact, TIME magazine described the Lausanne Congress as “a formidable forum, possibly the widest-ranging meeting of Christians ever held.” Congress participants heard addresses from some of the world’s most respected Christian leaders of the time, including Graham, Samuel Escobar, Francis Schaeffer, Malcolm Muggeridge, and John Stott….”
You see, when Jesuits say the word “evangelize”, they mean settle in Rome’s religion in their country, and boost or build up the long-time religious belief system in that country – not help them turn from idols to Jesus Christ. “30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:30-31) We see times of true repentance like that also in Acts 19. “17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.” (Acts 19:17-20)
What you see here also happened in Acts 2, and many other places where the Word of God (the Bible) is taught honestly. What you see as the result of Billy Graham’s Jesuit false gospel is cheap and shallow smiles and warm-fuzzy feelings… some went on to become saved, most did not. But, God’s Word is very clear – no one gets saved by a false gospel and a half-gospel. The devil knows that, which is why he is inspiring his servants to pass around something that looks like the message of Jesus, but is very different.
Did you realize Billy Graham praised the “pope”? Here’s what he said about John Paul 11 – “[Pope John Paul II is] the greatest religious leader of the modern world, and one of the greatest moral and spiritual leaders of the century.” If you know anything about the Catholic system and teachings, you realize that they have built a “good works” religion that pretends to add tainted words to the death of Jesus Christ. The Vatican teaches many blasphemies against the Bible, but only those who regularly hear their so-called “teachings” even realize that.
Here are a few of their false teachings.
A Reminder of Catholic False teachings
“The teaching of the Catholic Church on purgatory is: “All who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven” [Catechism of the Catholic Church, para 1030]. Purgatory is not a second chance, it is simply the final phase of sanctification for those who have been justified, but still are not yet perfected. Everyone who enters purgatory is on their way to heaven. It could be described as the cleanup room on the way to the banquet. It has not been defined by the Church as being a distinct place or as having literal fire. It may be instantaneous. But we humans existing in time and space often talk about places and lengths of time. This is not necessary to understand purgatory.
[Everyone adds to the ‘finished work’ of Christ!]
Christ died for the sins of the world, but that doesn’t mean that everyone automatically goes to heaven. His redemptive work upon the cross must be applied to us. We must believe, we must have faith and we must accept His sacrifice on the cross.
And even Jesus Christ does not consider His work finished since He continues to intercede for us at the right hand of the Father (Rom 8:34, Heb 7:25).
[Christians still suffer from the effects of sin.]
It is true that Jesus was handed over to death for our trespasses and was raised for our justification (Rom 4:25), but that doesn’t mean that we don’t suffer from the effects of sin. Jesus died so that we might be freed from the dominion of sin brought about by Adam’s fall (Rom 5:12-5:21), but Christians still must suffer from the effects of Adam’s sin. Christians still suffer pain in child bearing (Gen 3:16), other pain, disease, physical death, and they still toil (Gen 3:7-19)…”

More links explaining the Jesuits – in their own words
You can find some of our free resources in exposing the lies of Rome and her Jesuits, in these links:
In this first article, we give the Scriptures that answer 10 top lies of the Vatican, including was Mary perfect, was Jesus an only child, was Peter the first “pope”, and more.
Billy Graham used his pretense of doctrinal accuracy to the Bible and honest Bible teaching to prop up his friends too. In June 2005, Billy Graham gave high praise to pervert Bill Clinton. “President and Mrs. Clinton [applause]. Many years ago, when I was speaking and he was in the audience, he had just spoken and I told him before an audience that I thought that when he left the presidency he should be an evangelist. [applause laughs and cheers, Clintons just laugh]. Because he has all the gifts, and he could leave his wife to run the country…[more laughs and applause]”
You can find a lot more about the lies and false teachings of Jesuit Billy Graham in our previous articles.
Billy Graham also called Bill Clinton a “Christian”. “… [Time with Bill Clinton] was a warm fellowship with a man who has not always won the approval of his fellow Christians but who has in his heart a desire to serve God and do His will…” Quote from Billy Graham’s book, “Just As I Am”, page 656.
There is so much more to say, but we hope that you have understood the problem – Jesuits don’t know the gospel, they allegorize God’s Word, and they comfort people in sin, and then they get you busy doing “good deeds” and/or helping the “poor and under-privileged” in other countries, as though that is the same thing as taking the gospel message of Jesus to the ends of the earth.
Let us all study Jesus’ words to better understand His gospel so we can teach it well and help people see through the counterfeits, amen?
You can find the core teaching from Jesus Himself about the gospel and what it takes to get salvation in our Bible study on the gospel.

Again, resharing that info for that book, so anyone can do the deeper research for themselves.
A book that really shows this, with over 1000 sources, is “Billy Graham and His Friends”,
by Cathy Burns. You should be able to find it online very easily, until/unless
the Graham family cover-up team tries to ban it.
