Billy Graham
We have been trying to solve every ill of society as though society were made up of regenerate men to whom we had an obligation to speak with Christian advice.
Billy Graham
We have become so tolerant and accepting of the world’s ways that it is hard for many in the church to notice the sin much less answer how it crept in. The church is to be in the world, but worldliness is not to infiltrate the church.
Billy Graham
In some churches today and on some religious television programs, we see the attempt to make Christianity popular and pleasant. We have taken the cross away and substituted cushions.
Billy Graham
The church should be setting the pace. The church should be taking its proper place of leadership in the nation . . .God help the church to wake up!
Billy Graham
Before three thousand people were brought into the church on the day of Pentecost, the disciples had spent fifty days in prayer, fasting, and spiritual travail.
Billy Graham
Down through the centuries the church has contributed more than any other single agency in lifting social standards to new heights.
Billy Graham
Pentecost was the day of power of the Holy Spirit. It was the day the Christian church was born.
Billy Graham
The church is far greater than [a building or denomination]. It includes the whole family of God—that vast unseen fellowship of men and women throughout the ages who belong to Christ. Paul wrote of “God’s household, which is the church of the living God” [1 Timothy 3:15 NIV).
Billy Graham
Unless the church quickly recovers the authoritative biblical message, we may witness the spectacle of millions of Christians going outside the institutional church to find spiritual food.
Billy Graham
The church does not prey on the lost; it prays for the perishing.
Billy Graham
The church is blending into the community by embracing what the world enjoys and, in turn, bringing inside the church the world’s ideas and interests.
Billy Graham
The church in America has been deeply infiltrated by the “world,” and in the process it is beginning to copy and resemble the world in many of its activities.
Billy Graham
The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.
Billy Graham
Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate the Christian from the man of the world. In America, for example, churchgoing has become popular, but churchgoing may not necessarily be accompanied by genuine depth in prayer and Bible study or a change in lifestyle.
Billy Graham
The Lord did not design the church to cater to people’s needs—the Lord breathed life into the church to proclaim His truths.
Billy Graham
The church has lost its ability to discipline members who live openly in sin. Consequently, we have lost our witness in the community.
Billy Graham
If the church is acceptable to this present age and is not suffering reproach, then it is not the true church that our Lord founded.
Billy Graham
The blood of Christ purchased the church.
Billy Graham
The church holds the key to revival. It is within our grasp.
Billy Graham
If we in the church want a cause to fight, let’s fight sin. Let’s reveal its hideousness. Let’s show that Jeremiah was correct when e said: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked” [Jeremiah 17:9 NKJV].
