QUOTES MADE BY THE REV. BILLY GRAHAM
"I respect other paths to God." (Billy Graham, Parade Magazine, Oct 20th 1996)
"I believe the Bible is the inspired, authoritative word of God but I don't use the word 'inerrant' because it's become a brittle divisive word."
(Billy Graham, Newsweek magazine, April 26, 1982, in a debate on the issue of biblical infallibility.)
"When you read in the paper 'Billy Graham is dead' know that I will be with my Father in Heaven." Halifax, Nova Scotia 1978
"Yes, the Bible teaches that there is coming a climactic point in history. The end of the world system as we know it is definitely on the horizon."
October 11, 1958
"My one purpose in life is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ."
"If you find a perfect church don't join it: You'd spoil it."
"After watching The Passion of the Christ, I feel as if I have actually been there.
I was moved to tears. I doubt if there has ever been a more graphic and moving presentation
of Jesus' death and resurrection."
"Your mind cannot possibly understand God. Your heart already knows."
"I have one message: Jesus Christ came; He died on a cross; He rose again.
He asks us to repent of our sins and receive Him by faith as Lord and Savior.
And if we do, we have forgiveness of all our sins."
"I urge everyone to examine themselves and renew their own hearts before God," he said. "Of greater import or concern than any tapes made in the White House, each of us must face the fact that God has 'tapes' that record not only our actions but also our thoughts and our intent."
"I believe God has always had a special relationship with the Jewish people, as St. Paul suggests in the book of Romans. In my evangelistic efforts I have never felt called to single out the Jews as Jews nor to single out any other particular groups, cultural, ethnic, or religious."
About Christianity and Judaism: "We have grown. The two don’t see the vast differences and hold the prejudices they did. People have friends across all kinds of lines."
"God is like the wind, You can feel the effects of the wind but you cannot see it."
"I think God will have prepared everything for our perfect happiness. If it takes my dog being there (in Heaven) I believe he'll be there."
