Billy Graham: ‘God Hasn’t Changed … I Warn You That His Wrath’ Will ‘Explode' on the Sexually ‘Immoral’
Pastor Billy Graham, one of the most respected and influential Christian evangelists of the last 60 years, said that God gave us “moral laws” about sex “that are absolute and unchangeable,” and for those who engage in sexual immorality, God’s “wrath” will fall on them and “upon those who encourage others to indulge in immoral practices.”
“From the very beginning, God has given us moral laws governing the subject of sex that are absolute and unchangeable,” said Pastor Billy Graham in a radio broadcast that was re-published in the September issue of Decision magazine. “Nowhere does the Bible teach that sex in itself is a sin. But from Genesis to Revelation, the Bible condemns the wrong use of sex.”
“According to the Bible, morals are not relative. They are absolute,” said Pastor Graham. “There is noting in the Bible that would lead us to believe that God has ever lowered His standards. The seventh commandment says, ‘You shall not commit adultery’ (Exodus 20:14.”
“This commandment has never been revoked or changed in the slightest degree,” said the reverend. “Jesus went further and said, ‘You have heard that it was said to those of old, you shall not commit adultery. But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart (Matthew 5:27-28).”
Pastor Graham continued, “God has not changed. What was wrong from the beginning is still wrong today in God’s sight. … He is absolute.”
“And I warn you that His wrath is going to explode upon those who are immoral and upon those who encourage others to indulge in immoral practices,” said Pastor Graham.
