Billy Graham is in no way "falling away". As I said in an earlier post I grew up watching him. Since I live in a city that has very small Christian Churches the denominations had to associate with each other for us "as teens" to have any friends. I was involved in Youth for Christ and Campus Crusade for Christ.
Extremely conservative churches didn't want us to associate with each other.......Baptist, Evangelical Free, Bible Church, Christian Missionary Alliance.....
The Main Criticism that Billy Graham got when I was growing up was that he associated with the wrong people. Didn't Jesus get that same criticism?
Because Graham was a world evangelist and not just US he had to be greeted by perhaps a Anglican Bishop while holding meetings in England. He may have been greeted by a Catholic Mayor when in Chicago. When he was in Russia he was criticized for a high percentage of the audience being KGB..(do I have those initials right? LOL) Well guess what happened.....SHOCK.....THE KGB member got to hear the gospel? You think that is a bad thing?
I took a counselor training course put out by the BGEA and worked at one of the films to talk to inquirers. The biggest crictism we got was from extremely conservative to extremely liberal churches. The liberal ones thought Billy was too narrow.....the conservative ones thought that he erred in not telling people what church to join once they got saved.
Now let me ask you, don't you believe that the Holy Spirit is capable of leading them to a good church or out of a cult. Yes, we had followup, that is what I did, but the Holy Spirit is really the one who did the work.
We worry too much folks.
