Evangelical Christianity was now more about winning elections than about winning souls. After #Quote by Frank Schaeffer

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#81. Some people have said that man has improved ... [and] that if Christ came back today, He would not be crucified but would be given a glorious reception.

I am convinced that if Christ came back today, He would be crucified more quickly than He was two thousand years ago. Sin never improves. Human nature has not changed. #Quote by Billy Graham

#130. Christ was so intolerant of man's lost estate that He left His lofty throne in the heavenlies, took on Himself the form of man, suffered at the hands of evil men, and died a shameful death on a cruel cross to purchase our redemption.

With the love that was His, He could not be broad-minded about a world held captive by its lusts, its appetites, and its sins. #Quote by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#139. Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen! #Quote by Billy Graham

It is the kind of happiness that grins when things go wrong and smiles through the tears. The happiness for which our souls ache is one undisturbed by success or failure, one which will deeply root inside us and give us inward relaxation, peace, and contentment, no matter what the surface problems may be. That kind of happiness stands in need of no outward stimulas. #Quote by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#158. The Bible says a great deal about entire families coming to Christ. Rahab the harlot ... the Philippian jailer ... and Cornelius, the Roman centurion. That could be true in your family too. You may be the one who could lead your family to Christ. #Quote by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#162. And all of a sudden, all of my sins came before me. Everything I had ever done wrong that I had forgotten about years ago came into my mind. And I prayed, Lord, forgive me, may the blood of Jesus Christ cleanse me from all of my sins ... not because of my good works or because of all the things I have tried to do, but because the Lord had forgiven me. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#163. Among those Christians to whom hell means little, Calvary means less. #Quote by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#166. Faith literally means "to give up, surrender, or commit." Faith is complete confidence. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#170. Prayer is our lifeline to God. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#171. A false religion is like the imitation of high fashion. The very presence of counterfeits proves the existence of the real. There would be no imitations without a genuine product. God's original design has always had imitators and counterfeits! #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#172. Abraham Lincoln said, "I am profitably engaged in reading the Bible. Take all of this Book upon reason that you can and the balance upon faith, and you will live and die a better man." Coleridge said he believed the Bible to be the Word of God because, as he put it, "It finds me." "If you want encouragement," John Bunyan wrote, "entertain the promises. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#173. Only surrendered Christians will make an impact on our world. The world does not need any more lukewarm Christians, or lazy Christians, or quarrelsome Christians, or doubting Christians, or prideful Christians. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#175. I want people to remember me that I was faithful, faithful to the gospel, faithful to the call that God gave me. And when I get to heaven, I'm going to ask him why he called me, because I was much used to milking cows and working on the farm than I was preaching. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#176. It is the absence of the knowledge of God and man's refusal to obey Him that lie at the root of every problem which besets us. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#177. The best way to pray is to open the Bible and pray Scripture back to the Lord, claiming His promises and asking that He strengthen and guide [us] in obeying His Word. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#178. Our interests are centered in ourselves. We are preoccupied with material things. Our supreme god is technology; our goddess is sex. Most of us are more interested in getting to the moon than in getting to heaven, more concerned about conquering space than about conquering ourselves. We are more dedicated to material security than to inner purity. We give much more thought to what we wear, what we eat, what we drink, and what we can do to relax than we give to what we are. This preoccupation with peripheral things applies to every area of our lives. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#179. Prayer and Bible study are inseparably linked. Effective prayer is born out of the prompting of God's Spirit as we read His Word. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#180. It is never a question of how much you and I have of the Spirit, but how much He has of us. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#181. Our culture will stand in roaring ovations for the illusionists, escape artists, and magicians. Deception is everything opposite the truth. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#182. O God! There are many things in [the Bible] I do not understand ... I am going to accept this as Thy Word - by faith! I'm going to allow faith to go beyond my intellectual questions and doubts, and I will believe this to be Your inspired Word. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#183. Some [young people] are taking pills called "heaven or hell" drugs, because you're liable to experience either one. #Quote by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#186. Heaven doesn't make this life less important; it makes it more important. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Richard Wurmbrand
#187. A little known preacher named Mordecai Ham led to Christ a young boy whose name was Billy Graham. Billy Graham brought thousands upon thousands to Christ. Mordecai Ham had witnessed to many people. He may not have had big results, but one of those he won to Christ was exceptional. He was Ham's Song of Songs. I would encourage you to write many songs. One of them will be your Song of Songs. #Quote by Richard Wurmbrand
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#191. We have come to worship things, status, fame, popularity, money, security. Anything that comes between God and ourselves is idolatry. Jesus demands Lordship over all such things. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#192. The Bible nowhere teaches that the church will ultimately convert the whole world to Jesus Christ. There has never been a generation in history, nor will there ever be generation, in which the majority of the people will believe in Christ. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#193. There comes a moment when we all must realize that life is short, and in the end the only thing that really counts is not how others see us, but how God sees us. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#194. The one who made the Ford knew how to make it run. God made you and me, and He alone knows how to run your life and mine. We could make a complete wreck of our lives without Christ. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#195. Regardless of our cleverness, our achievements, and our gadgets, we are spiritual paupers without God. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#196. The Bible teaches there is hell for every person who willingly and knowingly rejects Christ as Lord and Savior. Many passages could be quoted to support that fact. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#197. Most of us do not understand nuclear fission, but we accept it ... Why is it so easy to accept manmade miracles and so difficult to accept the miracles of the Bible? #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Graham
#200. Confession and repentance might be described as the negative side of submission; this involves getting rid of everything which hinders God's control over our lives. Yielding to God might be described as the positive side ... placing ourselves totally into the hands of God. #Quote by Billy Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Graham Swift
#201. When I am writing, I'm very much on the ground, on the same ground my characters are treading. #Quote by Graham Swift
Billy Graham quotes by Graham King
#202. On an animated movie, I'm learning as I go. There are so many details in animation. Doing the voices was the easy-part. Doing live-action, you have to be on the set, every day. #Quote by Graham King
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Sunday
#203. Listen, if I heard shrieks and cries coming from a house and I ran in there and I found a great big broad shouldered whiskey soaked Joe weasel, dragging his wife about by the hair, and over here, two children are unconscious from his blows and kicks and another one screaming in terror, do you think I would apologize for being there? No! I'd knock 7 kinds of pork out of that old hog. #Quote by Billy Sunday
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Baldwin
#204. I don't think anyone has a right to possess anything he doesn't love - art or anything else. #Quote by Billy Baldwin

Billy Graham quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#207. In order to get one of the greatest inventions of the modern age, in other words, we thought we needed the solitary genius. But if Alexander Graham Bell had fallen into the Grand River and drowned that day back in Brantford, the world would still have had the telephone, the only difference being that the telephone company would have been nicknamed Ma Gray, not Ma Bell. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Billy Graham quotes by Melissa Jensen
#208. Back inside, his fire was crackling away. "okay." he actually rubbed his hands together. "Action." In two minutes, he'd pulled cushions and a couple throws from the two sofas and made a sort of nest in front of the fire. Then he grabbed his backpack. "Refreshments."
I half expected to see a bottle of wine or someting similar. Instead, he pulled out a thermos.Followed by a bag of marshmellows, a box of graham crackers, and, absolutely, enough Hershey's chocolate bars to feed a small army.
"S'mores!" I said happily.
"And cocoa.Sit." He waited until I was in the middle of the nest, then disappeared through a doorway. I heard a few squeaks and rattles. When he came back,he was carrying a tray, loaded with mugs,napkins, and real, three-pointed skewers.
"You're kidding," I teased when he handed me one. "You actually own s'mores implements."
"Roast,then laugh. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Billy Graham quotes by Anne Graham Lotz
#209. I felt that one of the things God impressed on me was that I needed to start a nonprofit corporation, so that any money that came my way, whether it was an honorarium, a book sale or a gift, would go into a nonprofit ministry. #Quote by Anne Graham Lotz
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Corgan
#210. People always called the Cure gloomy, but listening to the Cure made me happy. There was something about the gloominess that gave me comfort, and I think we're the same way. #Quote by Billy Corgan
Billy Graham quotes by Graham Russell
#211. I think for anything to change, in the real world, people have got to change on the inside and that's what we want to start, to get people to think and do more themselves and get involved in whatever they want to get involved with. #Quote by Graham Russell
Billy Graham quotes by Graham Greene
#212. Sweat cleaned you as effectively as water. But this was the race which had invented the proverb that cleanliness was next to godliness - cleanliness, not purity. #Quote by Graham Greene
Billy Graham quotes by Heather Graham
#213. I guess you just feel like there's a whole story that's not being told in movies. You're only seeing the macho guy version of a story that from the woman's side, may be completely different. #Quote by Heather Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Boyd
#214. I think I have a gift, but I haven't really opened that gift yet and given it to myself. #Quote by Billy Boyd

Billy Graham quotes by Billy Idol
#216. I think everybody heard it wrong. When people were saying I was born again, it was actually that I've got back into porn again . . . #Quote by Billy Idol
Billy Graham quotes by Graham Greene
#217. Married people grow like each other. #Quote by Graham Greene
Billy Graham quotes by Stephen Graham Jones
#218. It's just the garbage in/garbage out trick. If you're not taking any fiction in, good or bad, then how can you be spitting any back out (good or bad)? I can't even imagine trying to write without reading. Really, I can hardly write a novel at all if I'm not reading just book after book. #Quote by Stephen Graham Jones
Billy Graham quotes by Franklin Graham
#219. I regret that the Army felt it was necessary to rescind their invitation to the National Day of Prayer Task Force to participate in the Pentagon's special prayer service. I want to express my strong support for the United States military and all our troops. I will continue to pray that God will give them guidance, wisdom and protection as they serve this great country. #Quote by Franklin Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Laurie Graham
#220. I almost always use first person voice in my novels. It has its limitations, but it gives a sense of immediacy that's hard to create with an anonymous, all-seeing narrator. #Quote by Laurie Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Sheehan
#221. I'm very honored and thankful if someone says something nice about my playing, but in general I'm very critical of what I do. #Quote by Billy Sheehan
Billy Graham quotes by Graham Greene
#222. That was what happened to a man in the end: the stuffy room, the wakeful children, the Saturday night movements from the other bed. Was there no escape
anywhere
for anyone? It was worth murdering a world. #Quote by Graham Greene
Billy Graham quotes by Winston Graham
#223. The most frightening blazing anger was alive in her now. It was not only Elizabeth that she could have killed but Ross. She could have thrown every piece of crockery at him, and knives and forks too. Indeed she could have attacked him knife in hand. Fundamentally there was nothing meek or mild about her. She was a fighter, and it showed now. #Quote by Winston Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Lauren Graham
#224. Maybe the trick is for me to always be in some sort of disguise, to always be dressed to play someone else. Only then can I really appreciate myself. #Quote by Lauren Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#225. American fighter planes came in under the smoke to see if anything was moving. They saw Billy and the rest moving down there. The planes sprayed them with machine-gun bullets, but the bullets missed. Then they saw some other people moving down by the riverside and they shot at them. They hit some of them. So it goes. The idea was to hasten the end of the war. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Casper
#226. Play every shot so that the next one will be the easiest that you can give yourself. #Quote by Billy Casper
Billy Graham quotes by Laurie Graham
#227. I hadn't realized till then how a thought, once you have thought it, can never be laid to rest. It may lay low, but any time it can pop right up again, put certain words in your mouth. #Quote by Laurie Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Franklin Graham
#228. I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama. #Quote by Franklin Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Ruth Graham
#229. Just pray for a tough hide and a tender heart. #Quote by Ruth Graham
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Connolly
#230. Now the country is in a terrible state and you've blamed it on a number of things - unemployment rate, the value of the pound, and all that. It's actually because the national anthem is boring. #Quote by Billy Connolly
Billy Graham quotes by Chris Carter
#231. I've got funny things. David Duchovny had to have a cast made of his face to do an old person's make-up, and I've got that cast of his face in my house. I've got something from the pilot, the original implant that was in Billy Miles' head. I've got a sign from 'The Erlenmeyer Flask.' But my house isn't a museum to 'The X-Files!' #Quote by Chris Carter
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Connolly
#232. What horrifies me most about war memorials is that no anti-war sentiments are ever displayed. It's as if war is fun or noble, when actually it's all about shit and snot and blood and guts and soldiers stomachs hanging out and people with their faces blown off. But they never showed that side of it. Perhaps, if they did, there'd be less of it. #Quote by Billy Connolly
Billy Graham quotes by Billy Baldwin
#233. Rich Palm Beach clients all wanted the same kind of different thing. #Quote by Billy Baldwin
Billy Graham quotes by Graham Greene
#234. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, five hundred years of democracy and peace, and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock! #Quote by Graham Greene
