Billy Graham Sermon: Spiritual Heart Disease

Note: The following message comes from a sermon preached May 23, 1957, during Mr. Graham’s historic New York Crusade. Now tonight I want you to turn with me to Proverbs, the 23rd chapter and the seventh verse: “For as [man] thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The word heart is used in different ways all the …

Is Jesus the Only Way to Heaven?

How is Christianity different from every other religion in the world? The answer focuses on Jesus Christ, “the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16). Christ means “anointed one.” It is the term for the ancient Hebrew word Messiah—the anointed one whom God would send to save His people. The first believers of the early …

Speaking to the LGBT Community With Grace and Truth

A note, from Cissie Graham Lynch.  In today’s society, I assume most of us love or know someone who is part of the LGBT community. I believe this is the reason most Christians and pastors don’t want to teach on the subject. The sin has become personal for so many, and the lines of what’s …

Our Greatest Need

You can put a public school and university in the middle of every block of every city in America—but you will never keep America from rotting morally by mere intellectual education. Education cannot be properly called education which neglects the most important parts of man’s nature. Partial education throughout the world is far worse than …

The Most Unique Person

H.G. Wells wrote, “Christ is the most unique person of history. No man can write a history of the human race without giving first and foremost place to the penniless teacher of Nazareth.” Rabbi Stephen Wise said concerning Jesus, “You will find that He is divinely human. It is no mean joy to us of …

Who is He?

The Apostle Paul once asked, “Who art thou, Lord?” That is a question each of us has to face. If Jesus claimed to be the Son of God, knowing He was not, then He was a deceiver, the greatest liar the world has ever known. If He thought He was God and didn’t know the …

Need For Inner Change

The world says that all we need to do is be decent, respectable, and reasonable. True, that is all one needs to do to be a member of the Great Society, but to be a member of the Kingdom of God, there must be an inner change. A Communist in Hyde Park, London, pointed to …

Jesus is Matchless

More and more I am becoming aware of the truth that people change people as much as ideas change people. The power of personality is strong. One could find many illustrations to prove that often personality is greater than the idea. Such is the case with Christianity. The secret of the power of Christianity is …

Jesus is Transcendent

No personality in history stands above Jesus Christ. Agnostics and atheists have found fault with Christian ideas, but they can never find fault with the Person of Jesus Christ. They have found fault with Christians, but not with Christ. Jesus of Nazareth transcends methods, ideas, and followers. He stands at the turning point of time. …

Wisdom to Understand

When Jesus uttered His words of comfort in the first few verses of the fourteenth chapter of John’s Gospel, concluding with, “And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know” (John 14:4), Thomas said unto Him, “Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?” (John 14:5). Jesus …
