    Dear Rev. Dr. Billy Graham:

    You have enjoyed unparalleled celebrity worldwide.

    Last year you were chosen as one of America’s top ten most admired men for the 57th time.

    No other man in history has enjoyed the privilege of being spiritual counsel and friend of more Presidents.

    Hollywood has awarded you a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    Congress has awarded you the Congressional Medal.

    You have been called ‘God’s Ambassador.’

    Your moral reputation is spotless.

    Your religious followers and admirers number in the countless millions, second only to that of the Pope.

    And yet there are a few Christians throughout the Body of Christ who discern you also speak with the voice of a dragon.

    By so doing you negate the very faith and God you claim to glorify and serve.

    For there exists too many instances where you confess Christ on the one hand, then deny Christ on the other.

    Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
    46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
    47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
    48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
    49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
    50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
    51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


    You had obviously been eating and drinking with the drunken Mother of all harlots when you made the following statement:

    “I’ve found that my beliefs are essentially the same as those of orthodox Roman Catholics, for instance. They believe in the Virgin Birth, and so do I. They believe in the blood atonement of the cross, and so do I. They believe in the resurrection of Jesus and the coming judgment of God, and so do I. We only differ in some matters of later church tradition.” (McCall’s, Jan 1978)

    Not only does this statement (which you have never repudiated) betray the Lord Jesus Christ and His holy Word, but it reveals hatred for the martyrs of Christ who died defending the faith once delivered to the saints.

    Mr. Graham, it is not as if you ministered in a country with no access to libraries or who hadn't qualified men of God from whom you could receive wise counsel.

    It’s not as if your $100 million dollar ministry was deficient of funds and thus forced you to spend all your free time soliciting donations, making Bible study impossible.

    I would like to share with you and your deluded adherents a few truths as to the vast irreconcilable differences between Roman Catholicism and biblical Christianity.

    Below I paste excerpts of the orthodox Roman Catholic Rituale Romanum ‘Reception of Converts and Profession of Faith’:

    http://www.sanctamissa.org/en/resources/books-1962/rituale-romanum/61-appendix-reception-of-converts-profession-of-faith.html

    Mr. Graham, our Lord has warned of such a one as you.

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.

    And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    Luke 6:26Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

    Since he is producing an evil fruit, then it is best to discern his gosple message and then his altar call.

    "It is not going to church every Sunday that is going to save you. It is not by keeping the ten commandments that is going to save you. It is all those that call upon the name of the Lord."

    Sounds like the gospel message right? Amen? BUT now the altar call.

    "If you are not sure you are saved, come forward and make a commitment to follow Christ."

    Now really read that altar call for what is said and what it actually means.

    When a christian or sinner is not sure he is saved, is coming forward to make a commitment to follow Christ is how he is saved?

    Is keeping that commitment to follow Christ will be his assurance of salvation to know he is saved?

    That is not the gospel he had just preached before the altar call, now is it?

    Why didn't he just say, "If you are not sure you are saved, IF you had called upon the name of the Lord, know that you are saved!"

    And...

    "If you have not called upon the name of the Lord to save you, now is the time to do it as all those that call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

    But he did not. Billy Graham did what Paul would never do when preaching the gospel; leading new believers to make them obedient by word & deed by placing a yoke of bondage that no man can do nor keep since the standard of Jesus is higher than the works of the law.

    Romans 15:15 Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, 16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. 17 I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God. 18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed, 19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

    No flesh shall glory in His Presence of being able to keep that commitment to follow Him and so that is why it is written simply that the just shall live by faith in the Son of God and all His promises to us.

    We can trust Jesus as our Saviour that we are saved and we can trust Jesus as our Good Shepherd to help us to follow Him as His disciples so we can rest in Him all the way Home that He will finish the race He is enabling us to run.

    The above Scripture is damning to Graham, the Pope, Osteen, LaHaye, TBN, etc., etc.

    There are several other Scriptures which discerning Christians have used to identify the false prophets. For example:

    If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
    If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
    Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.


    The love affair between the false prophets and the world is prodigious.

    The world loves, honors and reveres the false prophets who experience neither the world’s hatred nor persecution……unlike Jesus and His disciples through the Ages.

    I would look upon Dr Graham as a saved brother in the Lord, whose approach to unity has meant a watering down on what we are to be united upon, as the RCC and Baptists do not teach the same Gospel..

    BUT would NOT see him as being a false prophet, but as one who took some wrong decisions in issues...

    A saved believer can become a false prophet.

    A false prophet can still be a saved believer.

    However, the call is given to every saved believer to depart from iniquity with His help & by His grace; otherwise, they run the risk of being left behind when God judges His House first at the pre tribulational rapture event when the Bridegroom comes for the ready & abiding bride of Christ.

    Ever saved person will get Raptured, as God sees you as either lost or saved!

    NO middle groups, as either in Christ, or in Adam...

    Scripture does not support that.

    Indeed, many anti OSAS uses these scripture as if that is proof that one can lose their salvation when in actuality those references are about why a saved believer will be left behind; for what he has built on that foundation for defiling himself with wood, stubble, and hay, unrepented works of iniquity.

    John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

    Luke 12:40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. 41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? 42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. 45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

    1 Corinthians 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

    Revelations 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

    So there is a race to be run; not for salvation, but to obtain the eternal glory that comes with our salvation of being a vessel unto honour in His House to attend the Marriage Supper of the Lamb to be held in His honour.

    And that race also has to be run by faith in the Son of God as our Good Shepherd in trusting Him to finish that race for us as we rest in Him in following Him. That is why we shall cast our crowns at His feet because they are His crowning achievements in us as we are the works of His hands. Amen.

    2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

    Those found in iniquity when the Bridegroom comes, shall be left behind and "destroyed" into becoming vessels unto dishonour, BUT still in His House to be received later on after the great tribulation.

    You need ask yourself the obvious question, ‘How is it that Yeshua1, a Metro Detroit humble servant of the Most High, discerned the RCC false Gospel while the most famous evangelical preacher of the last century has not a clue?’

    Answer: Flesh and blood did not reveal it to you but your Father who is in Heaven.

    Did the Holy Spirit ‘forget’ to inform the very Reverend Graham of that paramount fact?

    Or is it because the Holy Spirit does not reside in Dr. Graham?

    Furthermore, if the RC Gospel is false, (which it is) then its chief priest, the Pope, must be a false prophet.

    Let God’s Gospel be true and all men (who preach otherwise) be liars.

    Therefore, the Pope is no Christian, but is of his father, the Devil, the father of lies.

    And if this false prophet claims the headship of Christianity (which he does) then he is a false Christ because Christ is the head of the Church (Eph. 5:23).

    And if this false Christ – who is the current successor to the Papal dynasty -- fulfils all the prophecies relating to the false church (which he does), then he is the Antichrist, the scarlet Beast, the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition, the Little Horn, the seventh Head.

    And finally, have you not heard Graham preaching a false Gospel of salvation apart from faith in Christ?

    “I used to believe that pagans in far-off countries were lost - were going to hell - if they did not have the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached to them. I NO LONGER BELIEVE THAT….. I believe that there are other ways of recognizing God - through nature, for instance - and plenty of other opportunities, therefore, of saying 'yes' to God.” (McCalls Magazine, Jan 1978, I Can’t Play God Anymore.)

    This YouTube video should leave you stunned hearing Graham preach another Gospel and, as such, is cursed of God.

    I take it you are quoting from the HIV bible?

    (Hark International Version.)

    I'm sure you've many more gems waiting in the wings with which to outwit Christian truth.
