Billy Graham’s Death Marks “Prophetic” Claims
Earlier today, BBC announced the official passing of what is considered to be one of the best-known promoters of Christianity, reaching an estimated 210 million people during his career. Interestingly enough, there is already a mass of confusion as many who search for details on Graham’s death are confronted with older news sites declaring his death to be fake news. These reports stem from another announcement of Graham’s death that was released in 2014 as an internet hoax, leading many to believe he passed before his time. This time, the news has been confirmed by both the BBC, CBS and ABC news.
Although many are deeply saddened by this loss, still there are many others who contest that Billy Graham’s evangelism actually did more harm than good to the Christian cause, leading potentially hundreds of thousands of new converts into Catholic churches across the U.S., something that most protestants view as both concerning and damaging for the reformed Christian faith. There were many more concerns with Graham’s life and career as well, to include his peculiar connections with free masonic organizations and his popular quotes that seem to directly support universalist theology – a theology expressly conflicting with the words of Jesus Christ and the doctrines of the new testament.
One such quote comes from Billy Graham’s visit to the Larry King show, where Larry asked Graham, “If it was half time at the super bowl and you have 30 seconds, what would you say to everyone?” Graham stated that
“I would tell them to think about another game, the game of life. And to be sure they’re on God’s side. And He will answer their prayers if he will make that commitment to him.”
But there’s another interesting aspect to this event. Well-known and highly controversial televangelist Benny Hinn made a shocking prediction concerning the revival of the church leading into the end-times – and his most shocking prediction was that the death of Billy Graham would mark the beginning of this new era in world history. With so many Christians worldwide that deny both the authenticity of Billy Graham and Benny Hinn, the question still has to be asked. Whether contrived or authentic, are we set to see “big changes” for the Church now that this marker has been passed? With the credibility of these men so widely debated, is it likely that dramatic changes are on the horizon or will this turn out to be just another prophetic flop? What do you think?
