The Devil and Billy Graham

8/10/2007 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rev. Billy Graham's cover photo for Time magazine is innocent enough in and of itself -- but when you look at it superimposed over the Time logo, it looks like someone drew devil's horns on him. Say your prayers!
Billy Graham
The cover article, headlined "The Pastor In Chief," focuses on his "intense private and public relationships with every President going back to Harry Truman." The article does not mention, however, how Graham once said he thinks AIDS is a judgment of God.

Perhaps this cover is someone's judgment of him?

I'm not sure why we revere someone who popularized Christian Fundamentalism? I don't.

"Religion" is the main problem of this world. Because it is basically about my god is better than your god. My book is better than your book. My way of life is better than your way of life. And if you don't believe this, you are either run by Satan or are a heretic.

The Rev. Billy Graham is one of the most righteous men I've ever seen. I can't believe what I'm reading from some of you people. Know this .... Jesus loves you. THAT is the message I've heard from Rev. Graham. You'd do well to pay attention to that.

Time Magazine should have really been more careful in their editing of this edition. Rev. Graham deserves our utmost respect for his life's work. The recent loss of his wife is indeed heartbreaking for America and the Rev. Anyone who find humor in his pain or honor is not a very kind person.

What the hell ?    

I'm not a religious person nor do I go to church. But, looking at the responses of the people calling Billy Graham the Devil sure seem to be sthe ones pewing hatred that is unbelievably scary to even a non religious person such as myself, who believes everyone should have the right to believe what he or she wants. This is USA right?...a free country right ? Or do you people want to remove the Christian religion and force your religion of non belief on everyone ? Just want to make sure that YOUR religion of believing in NOTHING is better than the religion of people who believe in Christianity ?

Billy Graham was a great Christian man. Even Christians walking close to God are still with fault because Jesus was the only one without sin. However, those who continue to live in sin (such as gays/lesbians, child molesters, even someone who is a habitual liar) are condemned for their acts and therefore cannot enter into the fullness of heaven, unless, of course, they ask God to come into their hearts and forgive them for their sins. At this time, they will change from the "old" self to the "new" self.

what if he's right?

doesn't the passion to beleive in ANYTHING this strongly mean that there must be a reason to consider his faith in Jesus Christ? if all things 'gay' are embraced and all things 'paris hilton' make the headlines today, why can't another man's lifestyle?

could it actually be true that we are coming to the end? if we are...what's the end of your story?

I am appalled at some of these comments about Billy Graham. He has preached to more than 200 million people and probably brought more people to Christ through his ministry than anyone else. SATAN does not bring people to Christ. What an outrageous comment. This man's life exemplifies the "fruits of the spirit" which are the hallmark of a Christian. For all you confused people who can't tell the difference between good and evil, read 2 Timothy 3: 1-7 and examine your own life. You are probably in there and you obviously need Christ. All signs indicate the coming of Christ is near. You would be wise to take note and prepare yourself.

Billy's been known to say this a few times:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life..

Spread the love................

No matter what your opinions are on this article, it is completely hypocritical for any of you to say that your view is the right view or condemn someone for having his or her own opinion about Billy Graham. Why can't everyone give their opinions in an intelligent manner...without making hurtful and demeaning comments along the way??? That is why the world is the way it is now. We don't respect or accept people for who they are...we only find ways to hurt them because we don't believe or think the way they is so can you reach others or expect others to see your view if you speak this way?

abviously there is a factual reason as to why our world is plagued with such a death wish as AIDS. What thoughts do you "non-believers" have on where this came from and why?

Here is something Jesus said

Mat 10:25 It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!

lIfe is too short not to have something to believe in and be passionate enough about to die for it...if you do not have that in your life, it must be pretty unfulfilling.

Most intelligent people realize that killing innocent people is not the way to go about this. The muslim terrorists take this to the extreme and use their "religion" as an excuse to condone killing innocent Americans.
