how come things are unfair a non christian can not go to university or to work peacefully anymore if he publicly declares his faith in Jesus which some think is necessary to go to heaven because his parents will support him no more or they might persecute him. Can he be considered a christian for wanting to be one and keeping the commandments of God which even his parents should not object to unless they are evil and it is clear they don't love their children by caring to lead them to God? Billy Graham said the below which seems heresy but he might have meant what I meant. He may have thought muslims worship the same God we do I think we probably do not but I mean those who believe in Christ but do not publicly confess him to not seem uncaring not those who have not come to faith. I might preach that they will be saved through the prayers of the dead with assurance who were believers secretly but only that God might
save also those who are not sure if Jesus is LORD because people don't give them the chance to read the bible but they follow the good parts of their religion so they are in line with their conscience and Jesus commandments. However the greatest reward is given to those who join where they believe the truth is they shall receive a hundred fold on this earth eternal life and perhaps a better reward in heaven like having authority over ten cities either it is temporal rewards or it causes no envy
Billy Graham is a bit confusing when he said the below two quotes
"I used to play God, but I can’t do that anymore. I used to believe that pagans in far-off countries were lost--were going to hell--if they did not have the gospel of Jesus Christ preached to them. I no longer believe that. I believe that there are other ways of recognizing the existence of God--through nature, for instance--and plenty of other opportunities, therefore, of saying “yes” to God. ( James Michael Beam, "I Can’t Play God Anymore,"McCall’s (January 1978): 158, as cited in a pdf by Kurt A. Edwards in a Dissertation for Doctor of Philosophy at the Bowling Green State University: http://etd.ohiolink.edu/send-pdf.cgi/Edwards/20Kurt/20Alexander.pdf?bgsu1212785421
on pages 65-66.
He said that in 1978
I never believed not preaching the gospel to people can lead people to go to hell but I do now think it might because it is our responsibility
Recently but not too recently he said the below but it seems he has repented of his error in his project my hope billy graham
"I think everybody that that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the body of Christ. And that's what God is doing today. He's calling people for 'eh, out of the the world for his name whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world, or the non-believing world uh they are members of the body of Christ because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but uh they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have and they turn to the only light that they have. And I think that they are saved and they are going to be with us in heaven."
