I have done some reading on the internet about Billy Graham on some various anti Catholic websites stating that he is not a so called true christian because he was involved in direct dialogue with the Catholic church and comments about Pope John Paul. Anyways I had read somewhere else that some of his(BG) publications have been Anti Catholic. So is he against the Catholic Church or accepting it? According to this article, he was against the Catholic Church early in his career, but he had a change of heart and later, he would encourage Catholics who came to his crusades to go back to their own Church to grow in their faith. You can read all about it yourself - although the article is from some Fundamnental website and what they say about our Faith is so ridiculous... so be warned. My reason for posting the article (despite it's author) is to show that the Rev. Billy Graham was a HUGE fan of JPII... many of the quotes attributed to him are beautiful.. and this wacky Fundamentalist group totally slams Billy Graham because he praised the Pope and the Catholic Church. Anyhow, here's the article... it's the bottom 1/2 that talks about the Catholic Church & Billy Graham. http://www.fundamentalbiblechurch.o...on/fbcbillg.htm I think Billy Graham has been one of the most open and accepting Protestant evangelist of our generation. His desire is for everyone to believe in Christ. Of course his presentation of the gospel is from a Protestant view but from what I've read of him and in his books, if anyone believes in Jesus and accepts his gift of salvation than they are a fellow brother or sister in Christ. I think he is so unique in that he doesn't preach "Protestant"...he preaches Christ - period. He has no problem with Christians remaining Catholic. I think you'd be hard pressed to find another Protestant Preacher to agree Catholics are just fine where they are. I have heard that he refers fellow Catholics to Catholic parishes. If there's one thing that can be said about Billy Graham, he loves Christ with all his being and has done everything possible, utilizing his gifts and talents, to take that love of Christ to a dying world. He has put most of the rest of us to shame. And because he is filled with that love for Christ, he is also filled with that love for Christ's Body, wherever it's members have found themselves, and for that he will have enemies. I think it would have been interesting and enlightening to sit down at their feet and listen to him and John Paul II when they met and talked long ago. And to just imagine the prayer power in that room where they sat & spoke together. So what is your opinion of Billy Graham?
