crucial." If Billy Graham were not around, and the Holy Spirit needed people to testify of God, it is clear that almost all the converts had a Christian(s) in their life who could have ministered completely to them. Christ desires that we Christians quit placing all the responsibility of ministering on professionals, and that we each take up our individual responsibility to minister.
Next time you have a large Christian gathering ask them how many came to Christ through the television. When Christian groups are asked this, the response is very small percentage. As stewards of Christ's wealth are we honestly spending our wealth in best manner? Compare the large sums spent for TV evangelism/Crusades with the other needs, that go begging for our Christian money. Is this the best use of God's money?
Is Billy Graham really that good of an example to spend millions on? Bible-believing Christians have been wincing at how Billy Graham has promoted a long parade of Masons, liberals, heretics, Satanists, etc. on stage with him as well as those who he has placed into the leadership positions of his staffs and Crusade organizers. Many letters have been written to him about this. Billy Graham not only gives dubious Christians leadership roles, he publicly praises them such as Graham's comment that "Bishop Kennedy [Methodist Bishop Gerald Kennedy] is one of the ten greatest Christian preachers in America." Kennedy is on record as denying most of the fundamental Christian doctrines. The Bible teaches us how to treat men who deny Christ, who deny the Scriptures that the Holy Spirit co-authored, and who lead gravely immoral lives. Scriptures do not say to give them leadership positions and praise them, Scriptures say-REBUKE THEM- Titus 1:13 HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THEM- Eph 5:11
WITHDRAW YOURSELF FROM BEING WITH THESE TYPES- 2 Thes 3:6
FROM SUCH TURN AWAY- 2 Tim 3:5,8
RECEIVE THEM NOT- 2 Jn 10,11
REJECT HERETICS- Titus 3:10
BE YE SEPARATE- 2 Cor 6:17
