Billy Graham: Technology, faith and human shortcomings

As a clergyman, you can imagine how out of place I feel. I feel like a fish out of water, or maybe an owl out of the air. (Laughter) I was preaching in San Jose some time ago, and my friend Mark Kvamme, who helped introduce me to this conference, brought several CEOs and leaders of some of the companies here in the Silicon Valley to have breakfast with me, or I with them. And I was so stimulated. And had such — it was an eye-opening experience to hear them talk about the world that is yet to come through technology and science. I know that we’re near the end of this conference, and some of you may be wondering why they have a speaker from the field of religion. Richard can answer that, because he made that decision. But some years ago I was on an elevator in Philadelphia, coming down. I was to address a conference at a hotel. And on that elevator a man said, “I hear Billy Graham is staying in this hotel.” And another man looked in my direction and said, “Yes, there he is. He’s on this elevator with us.” And this man looked me up and down for about 10 seconds, and he said, “My, what an anticlimax!” (Laughter) I hope that you won’t feel that these few moments with me is not a — is an anticlimax, after all these tremendous talks that you’ve heard, and addresses, which I intend to listen to every one of them. But I was on an airplane in the east some years ago, and the man sitting across the aisle from me was the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina. His name was John Belk. Some of you will probably know him. And there was a drunk man on there, and he got up out of his seat two or three times, and he was making everybody upset by what he was trying to do. And he was slapping the stewardess and pinching her as she went by, and everybody was upset with him. And finally, John Belk said, “Do you know who’s sitting here?” And the man said, “No, who?” He said, “It’s Billy Graham, the preacher.” He said, “You don’t say!” And he turned to me, and he said, “Put her there!” He said, “Your sermons have certainly helped me.” (Laughter) And I suppose that that’s true with thousands of people. (Laughter) I know that as you have been peering into the future, and as we’ve heard some of it here tonight, I would like to live in that age and see what is going to be. But I won’t, because I’m 80 years old. This is my eightieth year, and I know that my time is brief. I have phlebitis at the moment, in both legs, and that’s the reason that I had to have a little help in getting up here, because I have Parkinson’s disease in addition to that, and some other problems that I won’t talk about. (Laughter) But this is not the first time that we’ve had a technological revolution. We’ve had others. And there’s one that I want to talk about. In one generation, the nation of the people of Israel had a tremendous and dramatic change that made them a great power in the Near East. A man by the name of David came to the throne, and King David became one of the great leaders of his generation. He was a man of tremendous leadership. He had the favor of God with him. He was a brilliant poet, philosopher, writer, soldier — with strategies in battle and conflict that people study even today. But about two centuries before David, the Hittites had discovered the secret of smelting and processing of iron, and, slowly, that skill spread. But they wouldn’t allow the Israelis to look into it, or to have any. But David changed all of that, and he introduced the Iron Age to Israel. And the Bible says that David laid up great stores of iron, and which archaeologists have found, that in present-day Palestine, there are evidences of that generation. Now, instead of crude tools made of sticks and stones, Israel now had iron plows, and sickles, and hoes and military weapons. And in the course of one generation, Israel was completely changed. The introduction of iron, in some ways, had an impact a little bit like the microchip has had on our generation. And David found that there were many problems that technology could not solve. There were many problems still left. And they’re still with us, and you haven’t solved them, and I haven’t heard anybody here speak to that. How do we solve these three problems that I’d like to mention? The first one that David saw was human evil. Where does it come from? How do we solve it? Over again and again in the Psalms, which Gladstone said was the greatest book in the world, David describes the evils of the human race. And yet he says, “He restores my soul.” Have you ever thought about what a contradiction we are? On one hand, we can probe the deepest secrets of the universe and dramatically push back the frontiers of technology, as this conference vividly demonstrates. We’ve seen under the sea, three miles down, or galaxies hundreds of billions of years out in the future. But on the other hand, something is wrong. Our battleships, our soldiers, are on a frontier now, almost ready to go to war with Iraq. Now, what causes this? Why do we have these wars in every generation, and in every part of the world? And revolutions? We can’t get along with other people, even in our own families. We find ourselves in the paralyzing grip of self-destructive habits we can’t break. Racism and injustice and violence sweep our world, bringing a tragic harvest of heartache and death. Even the most sophisticated among us seem powerless to break this cycle. I would like to see Oracle take up that, or some other technological geniuses work on this. How do we change man, so that he doesn’t lie and cheat, and our newspapers are not filled with stories of fraud in business or labor or athletics or wherever? The Bible says the problem is within us, within our hearts and our souls. Our problem is that we are separated from our Creator, which we call God, and we need to have our souls restored, something only God can do. Jesus said, “For out of the heart come evil thoughts: murders, sexual immorality, theft, false testimonies, slander.” The British philosopher Bertrand Russell was not a religious man, but he said, “It’s in our hearts that the evil lies, and it’s from our hearts that it must be plucked out.” Albert Einstein — I was just talking to someone, when I was speaking at Princeton, and I met Mr. Einstein. He didn’t have a doctor’s degree, because he said nobody was qualified to give him one. (Laughter) But he made this statement. He said, “It’s easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man.” And many of you, I’m sure, have thought about that and puzzled over it. You’ve seen people take beneficial technological advances, such as the Internet we’ve heard about tonight, and twist them into something corrupting. You’ve seen brilliant people devise computer viruses that bring down whole systems. The Oklahoma City bombing was simple technology, horribly used. The problem is not technology. The problem is the person or persons using it. King David said that he knew the depths of his own soul. He couldn’t free himself from personal problems and personal evils that included murder and adultery. Yet King David sought God’s forgiveness, and said, “You can restore my soul.” You see, the Bible teaches that we’re more than a body and a mind. We are a soul. And there’s something inside of us that is beyond our understanding. That’s the part of us that yearns for God, or something more than we find in technology. Your soul is that part of you that yearns for meaning in life, and which seeks for something beyond this life. It’s the part of you that yearns, really, for God. I find [that] young people all over the world are searching for something. They don’t know what it is. I speak at many universities, and I have many questions and answer periods, and whether it’s Cambridge, or Harvard, or Oxford — I’ve spoken at all of those universities. I’m going to Harvard in about three or four — no, it’s about two months from now — to give a lecture. And I’ll be asked the same questions that I was asked the last few times I’ve been there. And it’ll be on these questions: where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? What’s life all about? Why am I here? Even if you have no religious belief, there are times when you wonder that there’s something else. Thomas Edison also said, “When you see everything that happens in the world of science, and in the working of the universe, you cannot deny that there’s a captain on the bridge.” I remember once, I sat beside Mrs. Gorbachev at a White House dinner. I went to Ambassador Dobrynin, whom I knew very well. And I’d been to Russia several times under the Communists, and they’d given me marvelous freedom that I didn’t expect. And I knew Mr. Dobrynin very well, and I said, “I’m going to sit beside Mrs. Gorbachev tonight. What shall I talk to her about?” And he surprised me with the answer. He said, “Talk to her about religion and philosophy. That’s what she’s really interested in.” I was a little bit surprised, but that evening that’s what we talked about, and it was a stimulating conversation. And afterward, she said, “You know, I’m an atheist, but I know that there’s something up there higher than we are.” The second problem that King David realized he could not solve was the problem of human suffering. Writing the oldest book in the world was Job, and he said, “Man is born unto trouble as the sparks fly upward.” Yes, to be sure, science has done much to push back certain types of human suffering. But I’m — in a few months, I’ll be 80 years of age. I admit that I’m very grateful for all the medical advances that have kept me in relatively good health all these years. My doctors at the Mayo Clinic urged me not to take this trip out here to this — to be here. I haven’t given a talk in nearly four months. And when you speak as much as I do, three or four times a day, you get rusty. That’s the reason I’m using this podium and using these notes. Every time you ever hear me on the television or somewhere, I’m ad-libbing. I’m not reading. I never read an address. I never read a speech or a talk or a lecture. I talk ad lib. But tonight, I’ve got some notes here so that if I begin to forget, which I do sometimes, I’ve got something I can turn to. But even here among us, most — in the most advanced society in the world, we have poverty. We have families that self-destruct, friends that betray us. Unbearable psychological pressures bear down on us. I’ve never met a person in the world that didn’t have a problem or a worry. Why do we suffer? It’s an age-old question that we haven’t answered. Yet David again and again said that he would turn to God. He said, “The Lord is my shepherd.” The final problem that David knew he could not solve was death. Many commentators have said that death is the forbidden subject of our generation. Most people live as if they’re never going to die. Technology projects the myth of control over our mortality. We see people on our screens. Marilyn Monroe is just as beautiful on the screen as she was in person, and our — many young people think she’s still alive. They don’t know that she’s dead. Or Clark Gable, or whoever it is. The old stars, they come to life. And they’re — they’re just as great on that screen as they were in person. But death is inevitable. I spoke some time ago to a joint session of Congress, last year. And we were meeting in that room, the statue room. About 300 of them were there. And I said, “There’s one thing that we have in common in this room, all of us together, whether Republican or Democrat, or whoever.” I said, “We’re all going to die. And we have that in common with all these great men of the past that are staring down at us.” And it’s often difficult for young people to understand that. It’s difficult for them to understand that they’re going to die. As the ancient writer of Ecclesiastes wrote, he said, there’s every activity under heaven. There’s a time to be born, and there’s a time to die. I’ve stood at the deathbed of several famous people, whom you would know. I’ve talked to them. I’ve seen them in those agonizing moments when they were scared to death. And yet, a few years earlier, death never crossed their mind. I talked to a woman this past week whose father was a famous doctor. She said he never thought of God, never talked about God, didn’t believe in God. He was an atheist. But she said, as he came to die, he sat up on the side of the bed one day, and he asked the nurse if he could see the chaplain. And he said, for the first time in his life he’d thought about the inevitable, and about God. Was there a God? A few years ago, a university student asked me, “What is the greatest surprise in your life?” And I said, “The greatest surprise in my life is the brevity of life. It passes so fast.” But it does not need to have to be that way. Wernher von Braun, in the aftermath of World War II concluded, quote: “science and religion are not antagonists. On the contrary, they’re sisters.” He put it on a personal basis. I knew Dr. von Braun very well. And he said, “Speaking for myself, I can only say that the grandeur of the cosmos serves only to confirm a belief in the certainty of a creator.” He also said, “In our search to know God, I’ve come to believe that the life of Jesus Christ should be the focus of our efforts and inspiration. The reality of this life and His resurrection is the hope of mankind.” I’ve done a lot of speaking in Germany and in France, and in different parts of the world — 105 countries it’s been my privilege to speak in. And I was invited one day to visit Chancellor Adenauer, who was looked upon as sort of the founder of modern Germany, since the war. And he once — and he said to me, he said, “Young man.” He said, “Do you believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ?” And I said, “Sir, I do.” He said, “So do I.” He said, “When I leave office, I’m going to spend my time writing a book on why Jesus Christ rose again, and why it’s so important to believe that.” In one of his plays, Alexander Solzhenitsyn depicts a man dying, who says to those gathered around his bed, “The moment when it’s terrible to feel regret is when one is dying.” How should one live in order not to feel regret when one is dying? Blaise Pascal asked exactly that question in seventeenth-century France. Pascal has been called the architect of modern civilization. He was a brilliant scientist at the frontiers of mathematics, even as a teenager. He is viewed by many as the founder of the probability theory, and a creator of the first model of a computer. And of course, you are all familiar with the computer language named for him. Pascal explored in depth our human dilemmas of evil, suffering and death. He was astounded at the phenomenon we’ve been considering: that people can achieve extraordinary heights in science, the arts and human enterprise, yet they also are full of anger, hypocrisy and have — and self-hatreds. Pascal saw us as a remarkable mixture of genius and self-delusion. On November 23, 1654, Pascal had a profound religious experience. He wrote in his journal these words: “I submit myself, absolutely, to Jesus Christ, my redeemer.” A French historian said, two centuries later, “Seldom has so mighty an intellect submitted with such humility to the authority of Jesus Christ.” Pascal came to believe not only the love and the grace of God could bring us back into harmony, but he believed that his own sins and failures could be forgiven, and that when he died he would go to a place called heaven. He experienced it in a way that went beyond scientific observation and reason. It was he who penned the well-known words, “The heart has its reasons, which reason knows not of.” Equally well known is Pascal’s Wager. Essentially, he said this: “if you bet on God, and open yourself to his love, you lose nothing, even if you’re wrong. But if instead you bet that there is no God, then you can lose it all, in this life and the life to come.” For Pascal, scientific knowledge paled beside the knowledge of God. The knowledge of God was far beyond anything that ever crossed his mind. He was ready to face him when he died at the age of 39. King David lived to be 70, a long time in his era. Yet he too had to face death, and he wrote these words: “even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” This was David’s answer to three dilemmas of evil, suffering and death. It can be yours, as well, as you seek the living God and allow him to fill your life and give you hope for the future. When I was 17 years of age, I was born and reared on a farm in North Carolina. I milked cows every morning, and I had to milk the same cows every evening when I came home from school. And there were 20 of them that I had — that I was responsible for, and I worked on the farm and tried to keep up with my studies. I didn’t make good grades in high school. I didn’t make them in college, until something happened in my heart. One day, I was faced face-to-face with Christ. He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” Can you imagine that? “I am the truth. I’m the embodiment of all truth.” He was a liar. Or he was insane. Or he was what he claimed to be. Which was he? I had to make that decision. I couldn’t prove it. I couldn’t take it to a laboratory and experiment with it. But by faith I said, I believe him, and he came into my heart and changed my life. And now I’m ready, when I hear that call, to go into the presence of God. Thank you, and God bless all of you. (Applause) Thank you for the privilege. It was great. Richard Wurman: You did it. Thanks. (Applause)

  1. The Technology comes from the fallen angel s and demons that inhabit people.See the video The book of Enoch.See Trey Smith`s video on the Nephilim.Read the book of Acts,KJV.Witches are taking out people`s souls and demons control the masses.See these videos,by Win Worley,The Fragmented soul,loosing spirits of God,his mass deliverance videos.See the video Routing demons by John EChardt.See the video The testament of Solomon.See the video The Genesis 6 Conspiracy.See the videos on youtube,where they found the locations of Sodom and Gomorrah and Noah`s Ark.

  2. What a good preacher Billy Graham all his thoughtful words about everything he saying was true JESUS CHRIST said I'm the llife and truth.

  3. Billy has given a great speech about how people live today like they will never die physically. It's a shame we all live this way. I believe Billy Graham started out as a pastor on fire for Christ but sadly later in life he believed in universalism where if you strongly believed in your god whether Buddhist Muslim and otherwise you still will make it to heaven. He made this statement being interviewed by Robert Schuller. They talked about the broadness of God being inclusive of all religions. This is false. Jesus said narrow is the gate to heaven and broad is the path to destruction. Jesus is the way the truth and the life. You cannot gain access to heaven through any other belief of god outside of him ! There are many other examples of Billy Graham having a watered down gospel later in life. Do the research for yourself !

  4. Is it permissible to give out my contact information here in YouTube? I would like to give my phone number and email address along with some pertinent Bible information, so those interested could reach me. Thank you, Richard Duff

  5. PRAYING Jesus Christ, Jesus show yourself mighty to your people, Lord there seems to be no way out, no way to fix things, no ways of solution, but Jesus you are the solution, you are the truth, you are the love and forgiveness, you are the author and finisher of all great things. Jesus if you can raise a nation up and take it down in a day, then Jesus can you not heal our nation and our people.Yes you can,we praise the name of Jesus. Jesus, quickly reveal yourself to us, that is best for each one of us, touch us the only place that you know and can touch, Jesus can you not minister individually to each person, the only way that they can be ministered to,. Jesus are you not greater than any and all calamity and evil, Jesus where a man sees no way out, your spirit testifies that you Jesus, you are the only way out. Jesus you are the author and finisher of all things, great and small. Jesus help us receive your perfect and perfecting love and forgiveness of the cross. Jesus you told me that if we could fully receive and understand the love and forgiveness of the cross, we would be transformed as a new spirit, a useful witness for Christ Jesus. Jesus we pray that you answer this prayer, that we receive THE FULL PORTION,of your perfect love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.Jesus we praise your perfect love and forgiveness. Jesus we pray for personal and professional revival Lord Jesus not only does it have to happen in our heart, it has to happen in our family and in our workplace,,, Lord bring us to where your people are, there's no greater ministry then in our own families in our own workplace, Jesus show us the way to your fullness. Jesus you said, to pray for the greatest gift to prophesy to strengthen, encourage and comfort our people, to help raise them up. Jesus we repent of godless chatter, a lack of faith.

  6. True and geniune preachers live long and their brains are always sharp, anointed and never lack wisdom from God and never gives outdated sermon! for Gods words are alive and true😇

  7. Brilliant!. There is an Asian pastor, on You Tube, I will name him. His name is Gene Kim. I have never heard him speak a nice word about ANY pastor. He then spoke evil of Dr Billy Graham, a man I hold in utmost respect. That was that with Gene Kim, I wrote this man off. After listening to Kim, I listened to a brilliant, holy spirit message from Dr Graham, on the "Mind" I had tears run down my eyes, and now, even now Dr Graham is with the Lord, the words of Gene Kim slandering Dr Graham savagely upset me. You probably won't believe me, but in my spirit, I heard a voice, so powerful, it shook me, it was Dr Graham, he said" Barry, I am quiet capable of holding my own"

    I attended nearly every night Dr Graham's crusades in Sydney, Australia in 1979. of all the $$$ pastors in this world today, Dr Graham is a humble servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. Well done, Sir!

  8. Well, this man Billy Graham was a great Worldwide Preacher whose only and main objective was to bring us into repentance. I know this great man right now is resting from all his work here in Earth and soon he will enjoy in the great kingdom of the Lord!!!

  9. James
    4:14 Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your
    life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then

    16:26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world
    and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his

    6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
    moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.

    12:20  But God said
    to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be required of
    you. Then who will own what you have accumulated?’
    every man goes about like a phantom; surely he bustles in vain; he
    heaps up riches not knowing who will haul them away.

    Like a
    partridge hatching eggs it did not lay is the man who makes a fortune
    unjustly. In the middle of his days his riches will desert him, and
    in the end he will be the fool.

  10. And Yet This Glorious Soul Was Still Here 19 More Years In Gods Grace And Mercy, Amen✝️ I Can Not Wait To Meet Him Very Soon At Heavens Banquet With Our Lord And Savior Jesus Christ Amen Hallelujah Praise God Forevermore ✝️🙏🕊❤️❣️🔚🔜⏳⌛️🔯🕛🌈🥰👑😇Amen

  11. Homosexuality is God saying that life is not just about birthing. Alexander the Great, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Tchaikovsky were homosexuals. Their contributions to western civilization, the arts…music cannot be collectively obtained through the very religious whose I.Q. average 90. The tragedy is that they have taught our children Bible fiction that has nothing to do with God. A Bible that is full of contradictions, errors, and incest, in fact, the Bible has nothing to do with God. Why do we tell our kids the world has ended twice when we know scientifically it is false? You may not like science but you sure like your I-phone. At one time, only Lot and his two daughters were left alive. His daughters got their father (Lot) drunk to rape him to become pregnant by father. Isn’t that rubbish or sickening? Adam and Eve were blonde, blue-eyed. Their kids had to mate in order to grow the population; here is more incest. When 7th Day Adventists are asked, where do the blacks and Chinese come from, their reply, “they came when man mated with beasts.” Man has always mated with beasts and I have not seen such results. There is finite water in our planet; therefore, the world could not have been covered by water as in Noah’s Ark. Noah spent his time drunk, naked sexing his family (more incest). “Christians” committed genocide several times against humanity. Hitler told his soldiers, “kill them Russians; they are not Christians.” A Pope and Hitler made a pact to kill 6 million Jews. The Christian Puritans committed genocide against the first Americans, who were brown. The Christian George Bush at the sound of the Trumpet invaded Iraq for its oil killing a million Muslims, though his Bible reads, “you shall not kill”. Bush created ISIS. Gandhi said, “I don’t like you Christians; you are nothing like Christ.” What drives religion is the dime and all the jobs associated with a false doctrine. No religion has a monopoly on God. Christians take all comers, including the KKK and the white supremacists; they recruit through hate against homosexuals and a woman’s reproductive rights. A child is born gay; a child is not psychologically injured if he has two moms, two dads, or worse a mother and a father, which are the unstable couples. Just because the parents are gay, the child’s gender will not be affected. This has been scientifically proven. God is the Big Bang, the atom, the butterfly, the bee but He (or She or They) has nothing to do with the crude Judeo-Christian text, which is mostly rubbish that should be buried or burnt. God is all inclusive of good Christians, not the Bush type, Muslims…Hindus. Homosexuality is not contagious. I slept at a park in San Francisco in the open space naked next to1000 homosexuals. I wasn’t raped! Next day, I was still a heterosexual, to my disgust. Most people that follow the Catholic Church in Latin America have an average I.Q. of 90, when whites in the United States have an I.Q. of 100, Germans 103 and the Japanese 106. The Japanese don’t believe in the Bible; Catholics should envy their I.Q. Thus, religion can make you dumber than dumber. God is both Creation and Evolution. God is love, not war. The American Christians buy stock in the Military Industrial Complex; they then incite wars to increase the value of their stock. Do you see that “Christians” are very dangerous? When someone tells me with a sardonic smile, “I am a Christian,” I run for cover. Religion is the number one culprit in global warming by over populating the world through the birth canal and by having multiple wives (Mormons). (Jesus was illiterate; he never wrote a single word; nothing is known about his first 30 years of life; we can discard the nativity scene with all the camels and hay as well as Mary. Was Jesus homosexual or a myth?)


  13. This video shows it was published in 2008, the math does not make sense, in this video he says he's 80 years old, Google says Billy Graham was born in 1918, that would make him 90 years old in 2008, but in this videos he says he's 80 years old, a comment below also says glad he lived another, 18 years,, if the publishing March of 2008 when this video says it was published is correct then none of the math make sense! can anybody comment and shed light on this strange phenomena is it the Mandela effect I don't understand

  14. Google says Billy Graham was born in 1918 that would make him 90 years old in 2008 the math does not make sense

  15. Billy your works couldn't save you and they didnt keep you saved. You taught one was justified by keeping the law sir that will condemn you to the lake of fire.

  16. One of the greatest quotes Ive ever heard is "everyone… Dies not everyone really lives". I agree this world these days live as if technology or something suddenly made people immortal.

    Perdie was invited tonight to minister to congresswoman Lea Legardo.

    “If, then, Demetrius and his fellow craftsmen have a grievance against anybody, the courts are open and there are proconsuls. They can press charges. If there is anything further you want to bring up, it must be settled in a legal assembly. As it is, we are in danger of being charged with rioting because of what happened today. In that case we would not be able to account for this commotion, since there is no reason for it.” After he had said this, he dismissed the assembly.”
    ‭‭Acts‬ ‭19:38-41‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    “Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: “ ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.””
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭4:8-11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    “I said, “Have mercy on me, Lord; heal me, for I have sinned against you.” My enemies say of me in malice, “When will he die and his name perish?” When one of them comes to see me, he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander; then he goes out and spreads it around.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭41:4-6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  18. Billy Graham was a man of war. He was a strong believer in the Bible – the Bible that was altered from it's original. It was the company he kept and things he said which makes him very questionable. A Public Relations firm shaped his image for the public to be deceived. He loved celebrity.

  19. Donald Trump = "six hundred sixty-six (666)" using the 'Evil=48 Code' of A=49, B50, C51…Z74. He's the current Antichrist whose actions are the opposite of the Christ, e.g. he worships GOLD not GOD.

  20. Billy, you miss one thing, and that is that the men has also a spirit we’re Christ as the Lord Spirit reside. This is the most important part of the Bible. God create men with a spirit for Him to live inside men’s spirit. This is why Christ became the Life giving Spirit.

     1Thes. 5:23 –   And the  God of  a peace Himself  sanctify you  wholly, and may your spirit and  soul and body be preserved  complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
    spirit – Luke 1:46-47;  Heb. 4:12;  Zech. 12:1;  Job 32:8;  Prov. 20:27;  John 4:24;  Rom. 8:16;  1:9;  1 Cor. 14:14-16;  16:18;  2 Cor. 7:13
      This word strongly indicates that man is of three parts: spirit, soul, and body. The spirit as our inmost part is the inner organ, possessing God-consciousness, that we may contact God (John 4:24; Rom. 1:9). The soul is our very self (cf. Matt. 16:26; Luke 9:25), a medium between our spirit and our body, possessing self-consciousness, that we may have our personality. The body as our external part is the outer organ, possessing world-consciousness, that we may contact the material world. The body contains the soul, and the soul is the vessel that contains the spirit. In the spirit, God as the Spirit dwells; in the soul, our self dwells; and in the body, the physical senses dwell. God sanctifies us, first, by taking possession of our spirit through regeneration (John 3:5-6); second, by spreading Himself as the life-giving Spirit from our spirit into our soul to saturate and transform our soul (Rom. 12:2; 2 Cor. 3:18); and last, by enlivening our mortal body through our soul (Rom. 8:11, 13) and transfiguring our body by His life power (Phil. 3:21). See notes 122 and 123 in Heb. 4

  21. A man of God indeed.
    I agree technology hasn't solved those three problems and has actually made it easy to spread evil and suffering.
    Watching this in 2019.

  22. When I was a child I used to watch Billy GrahamI was so young I didn't quite comprehend what he was saying but I knew it was good and I know it was honest and I knew it was about my heavenly father thank you Mr Graham or leading me into Christ Our Lord 🙏 you will be missed in love dearly by all of your followers amen and AHO


  24. He is so missed. 💘 LOVED the messages of the Gospel that flowed out of his mouth and soul..powerful TRUTH and blessed my life…tore up the folly ground of sin. In so many people's lives. Including mine. Thank you missed. But with LORD. R.i.p. man of God. 😊

  25. Life is short and as doing evil is pure pleasure, what possible motivation could we have for doing good by enduring the pain of giving away our wealth? Every man an ingrate, going good only inflates pride, so where is the logic that doing good will accomplish anything good? But surely, speeding up the process of reaching the ultimate conclusion of evil, what could ever accomplish more good?

  26. Its been 3 years I have known Christ. And today I have learned something new. Everyday is a awesome after knowing Christ though people laugh on me by saying rice bags and all but deep heart I know how much Jesus loves me. Whoever reading my comments so that my faith become more stronger. Hallelujah

  27. God uses any means to reach us, and thank to technology now we have this miracle of miracles testimony for all mankind:
    Please read and share it. God Bless.

  28. God bless you carryon


    Jesus says whoever is evil must go on doing evil,and whoever is filthy must go on being filthy; whoever is good must go on doing good,and whoever is holy must go on being holy " Listen !" I am coming soon ! I will bring my rewards with me to give to each one according to what he has done. I am the first and the last the beginning and end
    ". (Bible Revelation chapter 22:7-15)

  29. Billy was once asked why he wouldn't tell the truth about the need for baptism he simply stated that he feared he would loose his flock!! True Statement

  30. Graham was a free mason……he was not a overcomer……shame on so many preachers in the USA who belongs also to the free mason…….fake christians ….shalom from Holland.

  31. Billy was an agent, of the Vatican in 1948, sent here, by the Pope, himself, to introduce Jesuit boys, as influences of Southern Protestant churches, reporting directly to Catholic churches, each week, with personal information gathered about their Protestant contacts.They were groomed to eventually control their facilities. Kathryn Kuhlman and Robert Scheuller were Billy's aids, managing the infestation and reporting the details, of the clandestine and subversive infiltration, to Billy. Ms. Kuhlman was given the reward of a private audience, with the Pope, for her efforts to trick the same churches by television. The Pontiff congratulated Kuhlman on her hypnosis skills. Robert Scheuller sold his fake plastic cathedral, to the Catholic church, after bankruptcy, because the men, of his family, always were Jesuit Catholic. Billy Graham was a demon, with a desire for tax-free wealth and his family is still living, tax-free, on his legacy. Protestants should "try the spirits" and watch for satanic hand gestures liberally displayed during the messages behind the pulpit.

  32. Pastor Billy Graham. still life on earth and Heaven, Never forgetten you, You are humble serviced!!

  36. Their are wonders ( questions) and mericals (answers) to anything known to day.
    Their are breakthroughs (eye openers) cause of what is called faith ( believing in what seems impossible). When your eye's are opened , it is the Spirit of truth that is given un to you , that speaks the mind of not his own , but of the one who he hears speaking. That is why it is called , the Spirit of truth. The Spirit , water and blood, bare witness in earth. And these three are as one. Water is what forms you and blood is what makes you. The Spirit can not be seen ore touched, and their for it is given unto you. What does not make ore form you , is self existing and not created , just like in the beginning , The Spirit of God . It is a gift from Him un to you. He gave you your free will , not to controle you , but to teach you who you are. You are part of the CREATOR and not only part of the created. Their for , you have the capabilities of a God and the responsibilities to act godly. If you did wrong knowingly , guilt is questioning you. You can reject it , by been heartless and cruel ore you can makebit right and ask for forgiveness and repent your soul. Have a change of heart to love they neighbour as you love your self . To be good to your enemy, so you don't cause him to hate you. Pray for those who spitefully wants to harm you , for the battle is not of flesh , but the demons in you. The the greates commandment of all , love God with all your body , mind and soul and trust God for understanding , He is in controle.
    Witch is easier , to love the one's that loves you , ore to show love to the one's that hates you.
    What is greater , to encourage the strong ore to rescue your enemy from drowning.
    God created man to have dominion on all the living things on earth , see and air. In that verse , the kinds of beast was not mentioned , why. Cause the earthy man formed from dust and the breath of life was blown into his nostrals and became a living soul, was the more lively beast. Know as the Serpent with the offspring as a tiller of the ground . LORD God made him and was the first man . The earthy man who was taken from Eden and put into the garden of Eden , to keep it. In the generation before any seed was planted in the earth , not garden. That is the generation , before day 3 in Genesis 1.

  37. He was and has since been exposed as a snake oil salesman…his son is trying it on too unfortunately….they won't talk with me, I've already asked his son to tell me what and why he claimed like his dad that Jesus according to them both 'rescued' them ONLY because 'they' hit their knees and 'self-invited'/allowed and or 'permitted' Jesus the permission……both!!! liars!

  38. I asked his son once why did he claim in his testimony, that one evening in a Chicago hotel room according to him in 19..something or other…he invited Jesus into his heart and became saved….right there, right then he said…I replied by saying, well, if Jesus only saved you that night because you knelt down in a Chicago hotel room…then tell me…what???? did HE do nearly 2,000 years prior for you then!!!!!

  39. What a precious man the same mandate he lived by is the same we Christian's must live by to plant seeds everywhere we go to engage to encourage those we meet

  40. Even toward the end of his teaching, due to illness, Billy still shows us our fralties, an pose questions we cannot answer, at least Not Without The Help Of God.. X X

  41. Watching this video today, August 19th, 2019. It was an honor to be able to live in an era when Billy was alive, to hear him speak about God and all the great things about Jesus Christ.

  42. It is a pity that even intelligent men like this have been so deeply indoctrinated to believe in this Fable. He made people feel good and that’s fine, but there is no god, nor Jesus. He’s not coming back because he was just a man, if he existed at all.
