I, along with many of you I'm sure, am no big fan of Billy Graham and his brand of ecuminicism; but tonight really takes the cake.

I was flipping channels looking for something worth watching when I passed TBN. As I went past as usual (actually I sometimes stop and see what some of these preachers are saying; I feel it's easier to argue the finer points with folks when you know what they're being taught up front) I thought I saw Rev. Billy Graham. It took me a couple of channels to realize it, but I stopped and flipped back. Paul and Jan Crouch, in Washington covering inaugural activities, were having a sit down chat with the very aged Rev. Graham. This was somewhat surprising to me, but what transpired truly shocked me. Nearing the end of the interview Rev. Graham thanked, whole-heartedly, Paul and Jan Crouch for their "ministry" and stated that he was "blessed" by it because it was the only "Christian" television that he watched in his home.

As I said, I'm no fan of Graham, but I found this truly shocking. Particularly because this man is so highly revered among churches, even orthodox churches. It seems he has fallen a long way from his Fundamental upbringing, education, and early ministry.

Billy Graham is not my favorite preacher, but I respect his integrity. Never a scandal etc. Although I can get TBN, I seldom watch it. However on occassion they will have some good programs.

I would say however that you are a little too quick to jump on Graham over this one statement. It is entirely possible that TBN is the only religious station available to him. This is true on many cable systems. And as I say, there are a few good programs that do show up on it.

Have you ever listened to Paul and Jan Crouch and their teaching? It's heretical.

Billy Graham sat in a chair typically occupied by the likes of Benny Hinn, Jesse Duplantis, Creflo Dollar, T.D. Jakes, et. al. and praised the Crouch's. Agreed, it may be the only thing available to him, he may only watch his old sermons, I don't know. The fact remains the vast majority of teaching coming from TBN is heresy.
