Billy Graham on Race Relations

 

Johannesburg, March 25, 1973

“Now, Jesus was a man. He was human. He was not a white man. He was not a black man. He came from that part of the world that touches Africa and Asia and Europe, and he probably had a brown skin. Christianity is not a white man’s religion, and don’t let anybody ever tell you that it’s white or black. Christ belongs to all people. He belongs to the whole world!”

McCormick Place, Chicago, June 13, 1971

“And don’t ever forget another thing. Jesus belongs to Africa as much as he does to Europe and Asia. He was born in that part of the world that touches Africa and Asia and Europe, and Jesus was not a white man like me, nor was he as black as some of you. We don’t know what the color of his skin, but it must have been a dark color like the people of his day, because he was man like them. Don’t ever say it’s a white man’s religion or a black man’s religion. It’s a world religion. He belongs to the world!”

"Had it not been for the ministry of my good friend, Dr. Billy Graham, my work in the civil rights movement would not have been as successful as it has been," said Martin Luther King Jr. (photo: Chicago, 1952) -- Billy Graham on Race Relations

More Quotes on Race Relations by Billy Graham

These quotes do not have any audio versions at this time.

“We and our fathers have made the situation what it is. In the midst of this tangled web, it is more than ever our responsibility to weave a pattern of justice—and more than justice: the principle of the Golden Rule, the spirit of neighbor-love, and the experience of redemptive love and forgiveness.” (Life magazine, 1956)

“The most segregated hour of the week in America is the eleven o’clock Sunday morning Christian church service. It is natural for churches to organize and function along ethnic and nationalistic lines….The sin comes when a church becomes exclusive and certain groups are refused admission or fellowship in worship because of race or color.” (Reader’s Digest, August 1960)

“I reject any creed based on hate…Jesus was a man. He was human. He was not a white man; he was not a black man. He came from that part of the world that touches Africa and Asia and Europe…Christianity is not a white man’s religion, and don’t let anybody ever tell you that it’s white or black. Christ belongs to all people. He belongs to the whole world!” (Johannesburg Crusade, 1973. Graham declined 20 years of invitations to speak in South Africa, waiting instead until the he was assured the event would be integrated.)

“Racial prejudice and injustice is fundamentally a moral and spiritual issue. God has created every person in his image, and his love is extended equally to people of every race.” (Cincinnati Enquirer, 2002)
