THE EVANGELIST

Muslim Group Seeks to Meet Billy Graham's Son

By GUSTAV NIEBUHR
The Associated Press
The Rev. Franklin Graham drew attention with remarks on Islam.

Muslim advocacy organization, the Council on America-Islamic Relations, said yesterday that it had sent a letter to the Rev. Franklin Graham, to discuss remarks that Mr. Graham, an evangelist, made describing Islam as evil.

Nihad Awad, the council's executive director, said that he wrote to ask Mr. Graham to meet with him and Muslim scholars, as a response to remarks Mr. Graham made in an October interview broadcast on Friday on NBC's "Nightly News."

Mr. Graham, the eldest son of the evangelist Billy Graham, is president of Samaritan's Purse, a Christian relief organization that provides food, clothing and medical aid to poor people overseas.

According to a transcript of the interview, Mr. Graham said Islam had attacked the United States on Sept. 11.
He said that Muslims worshiped a different god than Christians and that he believed Islam to be "a very evil and wicked religion."

The remarks came amid a longer interview, devoted mainly to Mr. Graham's Christian theology. Mr. Graham has emerged as a major figure among evangelical
Protestants, offering prayers at national events, including President Bush's inauguration.

His criticism of Islam stands out when many public figures have emphasized interreligious understanding, not least Mr. Bush, who has asked Americans not to blame the faith for the acts of Sept. 11.

Mr. Awad said he wanted to give Mr. Graham "a chance to know Islam first-hand."

In his letter, Mr. Awad said "negative impressions of Islam are most often based on a lack of accurate and objective information."

On Sunday, Mr. Graham sent a statement to The Charlotte Observer, in which he said his group was providing "more relief and aid to Muslim people" than to anyone else. He also said his calling was as a Christian minister, proclaiming Yahweh, not analyzing other faiths.

But he said, too, that he had expressed concerns about "the teachings of Islam regarding the treatment of women and the killing of non- Muslims, or `infidels.' "

A spokeswoman said yesterday that Mr. Graham would not comment further.





It is the opinion of The Sabbatarian Network that Mr. Graham is correct in his assumption that the Protestants do worship a different god than the Muslims. However, Mr. Graham does not appear to realize that the Protestant god (Jesus) is a false god with a contrived name, and that he and his Protestant followers do not actually worship the Creator, YHWH. There is only one way to worship Yahweh, and that is in both Spirit and in Truth. Since the Protestant churches of this world have embraced the same polytheistic traditions as the ROMAN catholics and have rejected Yahweh's "Tanakh" (Older Testament), and rejected the Holy Days of the ONE true "Self-Existent G-d," Yahweh, in favor of polytheism, then the only conclusion that one can come to is that Mr. Graham's god is the Antichrist. The true first born human son of Yahweh is Messiah Yahshua, and neither Jesus or Yahshua is G-d. Messiah Yahshua is only unique in the fact that he is the first human being to be resurrected from the dead to immortality and that he lived a sinless life (In Yahweh's Opinion). See "Sacrifice of Messiah," and "True Perfection."

Note: Immortality is a gift from G-d, and is never a sign of being The self-existent G-d or even A self-existent G-d.



John 4:22-24

22 You worship that which you don't know. We worship that which we know; for
salvation is from the Jews (NOT ROMANS).
23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in
Spirit and Truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.
24 Yahweh is spirit, and those who worship him
must worship in Spirit and Truth."
