Franklin Graham and Jan Crouch: Together at the Cove

Minister Franklin Graham appeared on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) this week, co-hosting its signature ministry program "Praise the Lord" with network co-founder, Jan Crouch, just as the network is facing scrutiny over allegations of financial dishonesty.

Graham, son of famous evangelist Billy Graham and president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the humanitarian aid ministry Samaritan's Purse, hosted Crouch at BGEA's picturesque retreat and training center, The Cove, in Asheville, N.C.

This is interesting in light of the financial scandals coming out of TBN, and how the Crouches have spent so much money on luxury goods and enriching themseleves.. Do not forget TBN advances false gospels from Word of Faith to Catholicism. I remember telling some Calvary Chapelists how false of a teacher Franklin Graham was, and how he spoke of the last pope as being a "great moral teacher" and they ignored everything they were told. Remember the Cove is a BGEA center where many a Calvary Chapel pastor has gone for "training".

Franklin Graham said that the best thing his father Billy Graham ever did, was to unite with catholicism.

Of course, I personally believe that Billy Graham was "hired" by catholicism to be a big player in the ecumenical movement.

Graham rarely preached to just believe in Jesus and be saved, based only on what Jesus did for us. Rather, Graham always stressed that you have to "commit to Christ" to be saved, and that kind of wording fits well with catholicism, since to catholicism, "committing to Christ" means taking catholic sacraments, and doing all the catholic works.

Billy Graham once said that the catholic "gospel" is the same as the Bible's Gospel. It's certain that Franklin Graham believes the same thing.

I agree.

Franklin Graham is continuing the work of his father in every SAME way possible, with perhaps a little more smidgen of good works via Samaritan's purse and more Christian Zionism directed ranting against Muslims {I believe Islam is a false religion of course}

Franklin Graham once lauded the Pope as a "great moral teacher"

Warning this is nauseating.....

That usatoday article should tell everyone all they need to know about Franklin Graham.

He's a false teacher, without doubt.

And since he's in bed with every Calvary Chapel I've ever heard of, then Calvary Chapel is either woefully ignorant by choice, or they too are false teachers.
