Billy Graham's Ecumenical Unity


    Billy Graham posted this picture today on his Facebook in memory of 9/11. The tragedy of 9/11 is one that will not be forgotten. Even though prayer was what was being offered and needed to families and people affected by the events, we see unbiblical prayer finding its way into the mix as demonstrated by the picture above.
   One may ask, "Unbiblical in what way?" Well lets take a look at the National Cathedral (the place and people involved in the prayer):




 This is a screen shot of what was on their front page today concerning 9/11. The statement under "Remembering 9/11" reads: “As we consider the events of 9/11, we must dedicate ourselves anew to the kind of understanding and compassion that links nations and faiths through the bonds our Creator has established.” —The Rev. Dr. Francis H. Wade, interim dean. "  If we want to link up bonds based on what the Creator has established than we need to start with the Word of God. As mentioned in the quote, this call for ecumenical unity is blatant throughout using a broad term such as "Creator" and also tugs at emotions by using 9/11 as the baseline in which we should "bond" together. The second post on the page lifts up the heretical Catholic "Eucharist" (To understand more about issues with the Eucharist check out this sermon: "Unless You Eat This Flesh - Jacob Prasch" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSmiGJH89Xc) and even list a women preacher (violation of 1 Timothy 2:12). Now for the person out there that thinks I am taking the front page out of context consider the "About Us" page found on the National Cathedral website  :




 This place encourages ecumenical unity which only advocates the promotion of a one world religion. Any Bible believer should be wary of this group.  But yet as Billy mentioned (in the photo on his Facebook), three days after 9/11 he found himself holding hands praying with other people there in that very place. Who can say amen when there are people of other faiths etc. praying to other gods? I have no problem praying that these men would repent and seek Jesus (the true God) but to pray together is outright dangerous.
 Billy chose to re-post this up on his Facebook page today and maybe some of you were already aware of this compromise but for those of you who have been unaware please pray for Billy that he will repent and turn away from such things. Consider the words of the prophet Amos: "Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?" - Amos 3:3

  Consider the importance of such concern for Billy Graham as John MacArthur explains it well:
         

 What is it about compromise and ecumenical unity that have so many Christians getting caught up in this? My answer is a lack of reading and clinging to the Scriptures. Let's reach out to these confused people but let us not walk in compromise. Let us cling to the word of God.

"14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”
17 Therefore
“Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
18 “I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”
 - 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

  1. Very sad that our remnant is so small; however, when I see false teachers I wonder how they can take God's Word so non-challantly, they seem to ignore passages such as James 3:1 "Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment.".........and how God started His destruction with the false prophets in Ezekiel 9:6 "Utterly slay old men, young men, maidens, little children, and women, but do not touch any man on whom is the mark; and you shall start from My sanctuary.” So they started with the elders who were before the temple.".......God is NOT pleased!

  4. Thank you, this was very edifying! Especially the video BILLY GRAHAM : The Man and His Message [Talk By Cecil Andrews]. But at the same time it is sad seeing how self-deceived Billy Graham is and to think of the many deceived Calvary Chapel Pastors (that I have heard personally) that esteem Billy Graham so highly in their sermons on a regular basis, using Billy Graham as an example of a "godly man." It seems to me, the blind are leading the blind who are then leading their sheep, right off the cliff. We need to continue to get the word out and expose these works of darkness!
