Some sincere people tried to convince me to join their religious group to be saved. How can I tell if they are right?
When contacted by religious groups about which we have very little knowledge, there are a number of questions to be asked which will provide a test of belief.
I think the world would be better off without any organized religion. What do you think?
Billy Graham writes, "You want to run your own life, and you don't want anyone else—including God—to tell you how to live. But is that wise?"
Religion is just a matter of personal preference, and "truth" doesn't have anything to do with it.
Billy Graham writes, "Do you honestly think everything in life is just a matter of personal opinion, and there is no such thing as truth? I doubt it."
What kind of person is in the most danger spiritually?
Billy Graham writes, "Even religious people may be self-satisfied and unaware that they need Christ."
Why do very few people change their religious views once they become older?
Billy Graham writes, "As we grow older most of us become more set in our ways, and we aren't as open to change as we once were. But coming to Christ involves a radical change."
I think we create our own heaven (or hell) right now by the way we live.
Billy Graham writes, "The Bible makes it clear that life doesn't end with the grave. After we die we will continue to live ..."
Why do Christians keep claiming that they alone have the truth about God?
Billy Graham writes, "God is the source of all truth—and He has revealed the truth about Himself to us. Christians believe God did this in a way that staggers our imagination: He became a human being."
If religion doesn't make a difference in a person's life, what good is it?

Why don't Christians believe in reincarnation?
Billy Graham writes, "No matter how long we lived—or how many lives we had—we could never erase the stain of sin that keeps us from God."
Which is more important in religion, learning how to live in this life or preparing for the next life?

What makes Jesus different from all the other religious leaders who ever lived, as you Christians say He was?

I think the world would be a much better place if religion was banned.
Billy Graham writes, "Think of all the good that has been done by people who are serving God—the thousands of hospitals and schools they have built across the world..."
How do you know there is only one God?
Billy Graham writes, "He has not left us to guess what He is like; He has shown Himself to us. He did this supremely by coming down to earth in the person of His only Son, Jesus Christ."
Why do religious cults always seem to hurt people—financially, emotionally, and spiritually?
Billy Graham writes, "One of the ways some people seek to fill the empty place in their souls is with false religion—and when a cult leader persuades them that he has all the answers, they will sacrifice almost anything to follow him."
I don't believe God is out there somewhere; I believe He is inside each of us.
Billy Graham writes, "God is too great and too vast to be limited to our own spirits or souls. God is the Creator of the whole universe."
Do you think religion might be in danger of going out of existence some day?
Billy Graham writes, "[God] is sovereign, and He is still in control of human history—and His plan for us will not be blocked."
Why don't preachers talk more how we can use the good within us to create a better world?
Billy Graham writes, "Even our best efforts at peace often lead nowhere, and human history is littered with the wreckage of broken dreams and shattered promises. Why is this?"
I have a friend who claims Jesus was only one of many sons of God. Is she right?
Billy Graham writes, "I'm sure your friend is sincere—but this is not what the Bible teaches about Jesus. Nor is it what Christians have believed (and been willing to die for) across the centuries."
What is your definition of a born-again Christian?
Billy Graham writes, "A born-again Christian is someone who has repented of their sins and turned to Christ for their salvation, and as a result has become part of God's family forever."
