In a previous post I mentioned that Billy Graham is an inclusivist. Someone responded with a statement he said he found at some web site affiliated with Graham retracting what Graham said in an interview with Robert Shuller. The interview is all over youtube.
Supposedly someone associated with Graham’s organization claimed he was ill or suffering after affects of some medical condition or treatment and that caused him to say the things he said to Shuller on the TV interview. (There Graham said quite clearly and unequivocally that there is hope for the salvation of people who never hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.) I’ve seen that interview several times and I don’t see or hear any evidence that Graham is anything other than in full possession of his faculties.
That quote, from the interview in McCall’s, is all over the internet. Just google for it. The statement of inclusivism was clear then and almost word for word what Graham said to Shuller later.
In light of that, something seems not quite right about the explanation allegedly provided at the web site and quoted here.
