Reviews - What do customers think about Billy Graham and His Friends: A Hidden Agenda??
Hidden Agenda, Blatant Apostasy Aug 29, 2008
Dr Cathy Burns book is certainly an eye opener. You can disagree with some of her theology but you can't disagree with the hard facts. And the hard facts are that Billy Graham says one thing to the world and one thing to his ecumenist clique and their powerful political allies. On this side of the Atlantic (Britain) where we pride ourselves in our objectivity, Graham is generally viewed as an actor and showman and/or a bit of a religious crank. He does have his supporters here, but they are the gullible who would follow a man in spite of the Biblical warnings against such a thing. For the general public, he is the kind of man who turns people off religion and the profile he's been given here has done just that. He does not know how to relate to the British. Dr Burns, is obviously a lady who takes the teaching of the Bible, and therefore Jesus Christ, very seriously. Her incisive book shows that without a doubt Billy Graham does not. If a tenth of what she says in this fairly large book is true, Graham would be exposed as a fraud and a charlatan and a fairly dangerous man when it comes to leading people astray. From a few pages into the first chapter, I could see that Graham was not just some silly man as many British people are convinced he is. His dubious connections soon put paid to that. And by the time I'd finished the first chapter, I could no longer believe that he was just some sincere but misguided Christian. He is a man of no mean intelligence who uses and is used by people in high places. And, as I got further into the book, I became more and more convinced of the threat Graham is not only to honest Christians who wish to serve their Lord, but that he actually sides with their enemies. If we want to find out something about a person we do not go to their enemies. We look at what that person himself does and says, or what their friends say of them, and Dr Cathy Burns does just that. "Billy Graham and His Friends" is meticulously researched and by and largely is free from her own views and does not generally argue from a personal paradigm. She lets the facts dictate the paradigm. Sadly, most people let their paradigms dictate the facts. We wouldn't have politicians and a subjective media if they did not. As Cathy Graham has it the right way around, any logical person can see that she's got it right. So would anyone who reads the Bible. Jesus said that His followers would be hated and despised. This cannot be said of Billy Graham or the people who are his friends and allies. For me, that alone sums up Dr Burns' "Billy Graham and His Friends." Though a big book full of facts, it was an easy and very enjoyable read, albeit shocking. I put off other reading to finish "BG & F." Every Christian needs to read this book. The Bible itself says "Prove all things" (1Thess 5:21) and it's not a request! I would also encourage non-Christians to read this book because it applies to everyone who wants and needs to know what's going on behind the scenes. And I would ask them not to let their paradigm dictate the facts. If something is true then it is true and wishful thinking won't make the truth go away. It is foolish to ignore the truth. If any part of Cathy Burns' book is not true, then that will be apparent. For any Christian whose mind is already made up on the matter, I would remind them to consider, "He that answereth a matter before he hear it, it is folly and shame unto him" (Proverbs 17:13).
The Reviews are even MORE educational than the book! Aug 10, 2007
The reviews posted here speak volumes about Christians and their pitiful hate-mongering, intolerance and judgmental attitudes toward their fellow man! I am a recovered fundamentalist Christian and thankful to be rid of the hypocrisy of that modern Christian CULT! If Cathy Burns and her readers could possibly pull their heads out long enough to study the ancient writings with an objective, uncritical eye, they might find true enlightenment, LOVE and compassion for all life here on this magnificent planet! I feel nothing but pity for those who waste their lives believing in fairy tails and imaginary deities! What is even more pitiful is all the energy Christians waste slinging mud at EACH OTHER! Than they have the nerve to call themselves CHRIST-LIKE! (BTW,that is what the word Christian means).
I gave this book a 5 star rating because the book was well researched. I enjoy a well researched book even though it is biased and I disagree with the pompous, arrogant, holier-than-thou attitude of the author. I also feel great pity for someone who is so thoroughly brainwashed by a prison religion that was originally conceived to control the masses.
Shameful book May 4, 2007
This is a shameful book written by a God hater. It's full of lies and distortions. Clearly Kathy Burns has never met or spent any time with Mr Graham and his associates. Although Kathy Burns claims to be a Christian, from her criticisms of Mr. Graham and other Christians, I'd doubt that even Christ would be good enough for her. Don't waste your time or money on thie hypocritical book of lies designed to slam good people who have dedicated their life to Christ and live a godly life. Unlike Ms. Burns, they don't make a living ripping people a part due to envy and pride. There is no "hidden agenda". The agenda of Mr. Graham and his associates is in the open - bring people to Christ and that is exactly what he does - opens the door to evangelize them and from there they should join a church for further study.
The Perfect Expose Oct 23, 2006
Documentation, documentation, documentation! Whenever I read a book that purports to bring to light secrets need to be known, I always check to see if that book meets my documentation test. This book far surpasses that test.
I was concerned with the anti-biblical and heretical aspects of Billy Graham, but this book exposes much more than that - it shows his connections to the evil world shakers as well. I am not interested in those connections, but I am only interested in the documentation that shows that Graham is not a shepherd, but a wolf in sheep's clothing. Yes, the book is long and tedious in some places, but just limit yourself to what you want to read.
The Bible says to prove ALL things.
"Test ALL things, and hold firmly that which is good." 1 Th 5:21
"Beware of false prophets!" Matthew 7:15
"Ye shall know them by their fruits," Matthew 7:16.
"Don't judge according to appearance, but judge according to righteous judgment." John 7:24
Much of the "fruit" emanates directly from Graham's own mouth.
For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned." Matt12:37
This book proves lucidly, conclusively, forcefully and beyond any shadow of a doubt what most believers fail to see or purposely ignore - Graham is a false teacher who is not drawing people to Christ, but is driving them away from Him. He is the single greatest detriment to the church of the 20th century, replaced now in the 21st century by Rick Warren. If I could give this book a "10", I would. Well worth every penny I spent on it.
No Hate here; Mrs. Burns exposes Graham for the phony he is! Jun 21, 2006
If anybody is the hatemonger, it's William (33rd degree Mason) Graham, who for years has blasted the germans on the absurd lie that they murdered 6 million khazars during the second world war, which is the New World Odor's biggest weapon to keep us divided here in Western Civilization! No, Mrs. Burns does- n't have a Historstorical Reveisionist back- ground, but she proves much more than Histor- ical Review Library, with our meager budget can! And she back it up in spades! Over 800 footnotes and all correct as far as I can see. I've studied kooks like Graham, who has a Play- boy magazine in one hand and Bible in another for years. Basically he's a crytozioNAZI type who wants your cash and then 'tells' us how to get salvation. Sorry Billy, the bank is clo- sed. And your types are on the way out. Bravo Kathy! And look for her exposes on the Mormons and Jehovahs Sicknesses, too!
