Billy Graham's Website Removes "Mormonism" From List of Cults

Apparently, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has a list of cults on its website for people who are interested in knowing who the Billy Graham Evangelical Association believes to be cults. And their list was recently updated to remove Mormonism, which happened about the same time Graham took out a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal, that read "As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election may be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman." In the meantime, Graham's son, Franklin Graham, wrote a column in which he asked, "So, can an evangelical Christian vote for a Mormon? My answer is yes, for if a biblically faithful evangelical could only vote for a candidate who was perfectly aligned theologically, he or she would be unable to cast a vote for president on November 6" ...

Not saying that either side is right or wrong, but I have a huge problem with the change of Mormonism off the cult list. The reason why the world is the way it is and the church is the way it is has to do with the act that we tailor our beliefs according to fit the moment. This has caused a broken church as well as a broken society. Fact of the matter is when the antichrist comes it will fool a lot of people. Are Christians going to tailor their beliefs then too? Maybe that's why the antichrist will convince so many people, because we lacked the moral back bone to stand up for what we believe in?

How can you have Mormonism listed as a cult on your website for years and then, with weeks to go before the election, suddenly remove it? Hypocrisy, sheer and utter hypocrisy.

I can't find this "list of cults" anywhere on their website.

My brother-in-law has "lost" a nephew to the Mormon faith. The nephew converted and is no longer allowed to have contact with his family except for one or twice a year. Also his family is not allowed to attend his wedding. In my opinion that fits into definition #2.

"Doctrines" are reformed,armianism,etc. Mormonism isn't just a doctrine,it is a full blown cult,not based on any biblical truth,but lies that take on a "form of godliness,but denying the power there in."

So Mormanism, which does not accept Biblical authority about Jesus Christ, is given the OK to manipulate a VOTE? How many other cults, then, can be manipulated off of Graham list. It undermines everything.
