The Wisdom Of Billy Graham

In the fourth century the Roman Emperor Constantine annexed the Church, and outlawed any teaching beyond what Paul portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospel. And anyone who disagreed with the emperor, was hunted down as a heretic -- i.e., thus, Edward Gibbon writes in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinacy... Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”. And the emperor's armies were sent forth to murder whoever did not accept the religion the the emperor, and their scriptures were destroyed. Constantine converted the empire to Christianity by bestowing many benefits upon those who embraced the religion of the emperor. Which created a mass conversion of pagans who portrayed themselves as Christians -- but who remained pagan in their thinking and lifestyle. And this is why Biblical scholars attempted to tell the Christians the truth, but the truth was and remains unacceptable to the multitude of Churches. Quoting from Examination of Modern NT Text Criticism: "Where history records that true sacred text survived this assault and is preserved in the traditional text, Westcott and Hort counter that the whole church participated in a conspiracy to fabricate a blended (and therefore corrupted) text. Westcott and Hort must not have believed the traditional Christian church to be genuine, but a sham. This thesis is supported by the biographies of Westcott and Hort. When J. F. D. Maurice was accused of false doctrine, Westcott commented that Orthodox Christians are like a new Islam persecuting a revival of the true Christians."

 All of which raises the question: When Evangelists like Billy Graham portrayed the process of Second Birth as merely saying a prayer accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, this doctrine which was embraced by a massive number of Christians, was in fact an anti-Gospel doctrine that further undermined the Original Gospel purpose and teachings. Biblical scholars had long warned that what the Church taught was born in the fourth century (see The Essenes And The Dead Sea Scrolls ). They warned that the people who walked and talked with Jesus daily, totally rejected the dogma that Jesus was God (see The Ebionite Nazirenes ). And that the very words of God were corrupted, in order to recreate Jesus as God incarnate (see ). Which means that when Billy Graham formed his doctrine that a Christian is reborn by saying a prayer, his dogma was framed off the doctrines of corruption which was founded upon the fourth century Church of Constantine.

 When Jesus stated that, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (see Mental Womb ), the process of second birth cannot be understood apart from the statement of Jesus that "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17). Before this verse can be understood we must first understand what it means to be Whole. Which provokes the question: How is Wholeness achieved? Contrary to the Church dogma, if Jesus is the physician, then those who achieve and sustain a condition of Wholeness, do not need the physician -- and as a physician, Jesus did not come for the salvation of those who are Whole, but only those who are sick and need the physician. But in total opposition to Church dogma, what this also means is that at the time of Jesus, there existed people who he portrays as "whole [and] righteous" who did not need Jesus the physician.

 The problem is that after the fourth century Church suppressed many ultra-important original teachings (see The Original Gospel Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma ), and recast the man Jesus as God incarnate, the whole reality of achieving the next stage of birth and attaining what Jesus portrayed as Wholeness, became impossible for the faith-based Christian believers to understand. Which means that while modern Evangelists such as Billy Graham preached the truth with respect to the necessity of achieving the next stage of birth, those who believed they were born again by virtue of saying a prayer, were terribly misguided. As stated by the disciples of Jesus: "We must through many tribulations enter the Kingdom of God!" (Acts 14:22). In total rejection of the Original Gospel message, modern Evangelical Christians preach "You must believe in salvation by grace alone, and that salvation is immediate and eternal upon acceptance of Jesus as a one-time sacrifice for your sins, and not obtained through works, sacraments, traditions or merits of our own". Which means that once you say your prayer, salvation is guaranteed. Yet, Paul warned that "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27). And this is confirmed in the words of Jesus: "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matt 7:21-23 NKJ).   Yet, the Church and the gospel of pagan Rome states that these words of both Paul and Jesus are in error.

 What Billy Graham preached was in the words of Paul, corrupted "milk". What would Paul say to Billy Graham? As stated in the words: "We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain, because you are dull of hearing. Although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to reteach you the basic principles of God's word. You need milk, not solid food. Everyone who lives on milk is still an infant, inexperienced in the message of righteousness" (Heb 5:11-13). By limiting his understanding to what Paul defines as corrupted "milk", not only did Billy Graham remain what Paul portrayed as an "infant in Christ", but like the Pharisees who threw away the Key Of Knowledge (see ), the Christians who followed the preaching of Billy Graham embraced a doctrine of faux-rebirth.

 Sadly, while Billy Graham lived a good life leading many into the Church -- and while the Church provided solace and a sense of community and well-being -- the Church was no longer the threefold healing center of pre-Nicene Christianity. Because he based his preaching upon a series of corrupted forth-century doctrines that had virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel Teachings (see ), he will find himself confronted with his error on the other side of physical death. And while the facts and the truth is easily proven, there is virtually nothing that can be said to motivate the vast majority of Christians to seek the Higher Truth of the Original Gospel message as explored in the foregoing link. And sadly, because the long suppressed Truth has finely been restored and set before the Church if the above articles, these words are once again in force: "If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin" (John 15:21-23).

 It would have been virtually impossible to restore the original Gospel prior to the Internet. At the stroke of a key, modern Christians can bypass the corruption of pagan Rome, and research the original disciples and followers of Jesus who were known as Ebionite Nazirenes (see ) -- of which Jacob who they mistakenly call James, the Brother of Yeshua who they mistakenly call Jesus, was the first leader of the New Covenant Movement (see ). Which means that Billy Graham would have been too advanced in age, when the Original Gospel teachings were restored in such articles as -- and TheCall at . And there is the article An Inconvenient Truth ( ), an Original Author, that explores the important reason why the scriptures were written in the allegorical language of the Soul -- and therefore were never intended to be historically reliable or accurate. But this is no longer the case for his son, Franklin Graham, to remain locked into the dogma of fourth-century Pagan Rome. And while Franklin Graham has embraced the Vegan/Vegetarian diet of the original disciples of Jesus (see The Holographic Mind ), in order to move beyond the "milk" of the Gospel, he must support this endeavor of a more spiritual mindset and lifestyle by seeking the Original Gospel teachings which were suppressed and corrupted by the Church of Pagan Rome.
