World famous Christian evangelist Billy Graham is encouraging voters to vote for a candidate who supports Israel. In a public statement Graham said.
“I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel.” Billy made and released the statement shortly after meeting with Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.
This statement of Graham’s can be confusing to voters as both politicians, Romney and Obama, blindly and unquestionably support the Jewish state of Israel with BILLIONS of tax dollars taken by the politicians from Americans and given to Israel as well as with the lives of American military personnel.
Billy also removed “Mormonism” from his list of cults on his webpage. Here is Billy’s definition of cult (prior to removing “Mormons” from the list) and the list of cults prior to his meeting with Mitt:
A cult is any group which teaches doctrines or beliefs that deviate from the biblical message of the Christian faith. It is very important that we recognize cults and avoid any involvement with them. Cults often teach some Christian truth mixed with error, which may be difficult to detect.
There are some features common to most cults:
• They do not adhere solely to the sixty-six books of the Bible as the inspired Word of God. They add their “special revelations” to the Bible and view them as equally authoritative.
• They do not accept that our relationship to Jesus Christ is a reality “by grace through faith” alone, but promote instead a salvation by works.
• They do not give Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, full recognition as the second Person of the Trinity, composed of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Some of these groups are Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, the Unification Church, Unitarians, Spiritists, Scientologists, and others.
For those who are interested, the Deism definition of “cult” is:
In Deism, a cult is an embracing of unreasonable beliefs by a group of people. Based on this definition, Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all cults because their members suspend their God-given reason in order to believe or accept the unreasonable dogmatic teachings and superstitions such as God giving real estate as a gift to the Jews, the resurrection and ascension of Jesus, faith-healing (as just one example of faith-healing being a superstition, if faith-healing was REAL innocent helpless children would not be dying from the attempts of their parents at Biblical faith-healing) and Mohammed’s ascension to heaven, among many more false and unreasonable claims. Because Deism always promotes free and independent thought and reason, it is impossible for Deism to become a cult.
It’s not surprising that Billy would encourage Americans to blindly support Israel. After all, it was the very powerful Jewish international financier Bernard Baruch who gave him his start. Without Baruch’s media attention the world would probably have never even heard of “Judeo-Christianity.”
When Billy writes that American politicians should be supported and voted for who “base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel” it seems Billy believes as Pat Robertson and John Hagee, two of the most powerful Zionist Christians in America. They teach the nonsense from the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament that God will bless the nations that bless Israel and curse the nations that curse the Jewish state. This is pure psychological operations/warfare practiced by Judaism since the start of Judaism. It is all done so that Israel will be set “on high above all nations of the earth.” (Deuteronomy 28:1)
