The greatest need in the world is the transformation of human nature. We need a new heart that will not have lust and greed and hate in it. We need a heart filled with love and peace and joy, and that is why Jesus came into the world.


In the founding era of our country, it was not organized religion but personal faith that brought focus and unified the early leadership--maybe an unspoken faith in God, and certain values that came with that faith. So in that sense, we cannot discount, in my judgment, religious faith in politics.

BILLY GRAHAM, Newsweek, Aug. 14, 2006

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.

BILLY GRAHAM, Reader's Digest, Jul. 1964

Sex is the most wonderful thing on this earth, as long as God is in it. When the Devil gets in it, it's the most terrible thing on this earth.


There are many things that I don't understand. Sincere Christians can disagree about the details of Scripture and theology--absolutely.

BILLY GRAHAM, Newsweek, Aug. 14, 2006

The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.

BILLY GRAHAM, Chicago American, Apr. 16, 1967

Suffering is part of the human condition, and it comes to us all. The key is how we react to it, either turning away from God in anger and bitterness or growing closer to Him in trust and confidence.


Remember: He WANTS your fellowship, and He has done everything possible to make it a reality. He has forgiven your sins, at the cost of His own dear Son. He has given you His Word, and the priceless privilege of prayer and worship.

All my life I've been taught how to die, but no one ever taught me how to grow old.

BILLY GRAHAM, Newsweek, Aug. 14, 2006

I have a certainty about eternity that is a wonderful thing, and I thank God for giving me that certainty. I do not fear death. I may fear a little bit about the process, but not death itself, because I think the moment that my spirit leaves this body, I will be in the presence of the Lord.

BILLY GRAHAM, Newsweek, Aug. 14, 2006

Sincerity is the biggest part of selling anything -- including the Christian plan of salvation.

BILLY GRAHAM, attributed, Billy Graham: the personal story of the man, his message, and his mission

The second coming of Christ will be so revolutionary that it will change every aspect of life on this planet. Christ will reign in righteousness. Disease will be arrested. Death will be modified.

BILLY GRAHAM, The Reason for My Hope

Yes, angels are real, just as real as you and I are. Although they are largely unseen by us, they exist in great numbers.

BILLY GRAHAM, "Billy Graham says angels are real and appear as ordinary humans on occasion", Christian Today, January 29, 2016

Since no one enjoys losing friends or being cast out of his own circle, peer pressure--especially during the years of adolescence--is an almost irresistible force.

BILLY GRAHAM, Billy Graham in Quotes

Many Christians give in to various temptations through peer pressure and find themselves surrendering to worldly passions, justifying pleasures the world offers.

BILLY GRAHAM, Billy Graham in Quotes

Sin is a terrible reality -- and one reason it's so terrible is because it separates us from God. But sin is also terrible because it affects every one of us, no matter how good or bad we are. In other words, we are all guilty before God, and none of us deserves His forgiveness or salvation.... But does this mean our situation is hopeless? Does this mean God will never forgive us, and Heaven's door is forever closed to us? No, it doesn't -- and the reason is because God has done for us what we could never do for ourselves. We can never cleanse ourselves of our sins, no matter how hard we try -- but God has provided the way for us to be forgiven and cleansed!

BILLY GRAHAM, "Jesus is all the necessary proof that God will forgive you", Marietta Daily Journal, August 12, 2017

Sin is a deceiver and a destroyer, and God hates it for that reason. Just as you hate it when your child gets hurt, so in a far greater way God hates it when we hurt ourselves by our sin.

BILLY GRAHAM, "God hates sin, but He doesn't hate us because we sin", Brunswick News, August 18, 2017

Some reputable scientists deny and others assert that UFOs do appear to people from time to time. Some scientists have reached the place where they think they can prove that these are possibly visitors from outer space. Some Christian writers have speculated that UFOs could very well be apart of God's angelic host who preside over the physical affairs of universal creation. While we cannot assert such a view with certainty, many people are now seeking some type of supernatural explanation for these phenomena. Nothing can hide the face, however, that these unexplained events are occurring with greater frequency around the entire world and in unexpected places.
