Three Reasons Billy Graham is Definitely Not an “Evangelical”

Written by Tylor Standley


It’s hard to picture anyone other than Billy Graham when thinking about “evangelicalism.” The term is notoriously difficult to define, but somehow he embodied it best. Yet, while he may have embodied the Evangelicalism of yesteryear, can we say the same today?

The list of those qualified to be called “Evangelical” gets a little shorter every day. I’ve already mentioned Rev. Graham among a few that should be kicked out of Evangelicalism. Here, we will look a little closer at America’s beloved evangelist to see just how far he falls from the evangelical tree (or, more accurately, how far evangelicalism fell from him).
