Billy Graham has called Pope John Paul II
"...the world's greatest evangelist."
In 1967 Billy Graham was awarded an honoury degree from the Roman Whore church at the Catholic Belmont Abbey - this is what he had to say when recieving the award:
He said he "...knew of no greater honor".
He also said:
"The Gospel that built this school and the Gospel that brings me here tonight is still the way of salvation."
so we can conclude from the above statement that the gospel Billy Graham preaches is the same as that of the Roman Catholic church.
We shall see further evidence of this in the remaining quotes.
More quotes from Billy Graham.
"While I certainly believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, I do not find anywhere in the New Testament that the particular belief is necessary for personal salvation."
United Church Observer, July 1, 1966
Regarding the Pope, Billy Graham said:
"He'll be warmly greeted because he's such a down-to-earth, fun-loving man who creates friends wherever he goes. I firmly feel Pope John Paul II will be the most respected pope of the century and he'll become the moral leader of the world."
National Enquirer - March 8, 1979
Billy again said of the pope:
"The Pilgrim Pope: Builder of Bridges"
"In a world dangerously poised on the brink of nuclear disaster, the exhortations of Pope John Paul II must be heeded if our children and grandchildren are to have a future... The words of the Pope in his role as statesman must continue to challenge us and lead us to action..."
"The Pope sought to speak to the spiritual hunger of our age in the same way Christians throughout the centuries have spoken to the spiritual yearnings of every age-- by pointing people to Christ."
"During his visit to America, Pope John Paul II was indeed a bridge builder, and that is something our divided world desperately needs."
Billy Graham then called the Pope:
"the moral leader of the world."
Then he said:
"prayers will be with the Pontiff during his visit here."
Billy Graham the Pope's cheerleader then said of John Paul's visit to the usa:
"The way our great nation welcomed the Pontiff into its heart is a clear sign to me that we are spiritually hungry for a new era of morality and stable family life."
Billy Graham then renounces his true christian heritage:
"World travel and getting to know clergy of all denominations has helped mold me into an ecumenical being. We're separated by theology..., but all of that means nothing to me any more."
"I feel closer to the Roman Catholic Church than I do to some Protestants."
The editor of the Rocky Mountain News wrote this in an article after one of Billy Graham crusades -
"Many Roman Catholics walked the aisles during Graham's 1965 crusade. In the 1987 crusade, which ends tomorrow, Catholics were waiting to help Catholics express their new and renewed faith in their Mother Church."
July 25, 1987
"Some 2100 Catholics 'went forward' at the Missions evenings in London which was excellent-- from nearly all our Parishes in Westminster... Billy Graham has helped our (Roman Catholic) Church greatly and many have 'renewed' their faith under his great ministry." Letter from Rev. Michael Seed, Ecumenical advisor to Cardinal Hume, London, England, 1989
