Not long ago Pope Francis shocked many by saying that atheists can be saved.
However, in doing so, he was catching up with . . . Billy Graham!
Yes, in 1997 on Robert Schuller’s “Hour of Power” telecast, the famous evangelist said people of all religions and of none can be saved, even if they’ve never heard of Jesus or deny his divinity.
Watch and listen to his words for yourself.
Has Billy Graham lost his faith, as some critics charge? Or have he and the pope finally come around to acknowledging the Greatness of the divine and its unwillingness to be limited by denominations, theology, and even by denials of the very existence of what human beings have called “God”?
What is your reaction to Graham’s words – and to Francis I echoing him?
