Quiz time - Who said this?

I came across an interesting quote I'd like to share:

Well, Christianity and being a true believer--you know, I think there's the Body of Christ. This comes from all the Christian groups around the world, outside the Christian groups. I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ. And I don't think that we're going to see a great sweeping revival, that will turn the whole world to Christ at any time. I think James answered that, the Apostle James in the first council in Jerusalem, when he said that God's purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name. And that's what God is doing today, He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven.

Do you have a guess who might have said it? (Hint: It wasn't a Quaker) I'll put the answer in a comment.


  1. Well, no, I wouldn't have expected it to be a Quaker. At least, not an early Friend; the theology's too different. I could see it being a modern liberal unprogrammed Quaker, though.

    I wasn't able to guess who it was. Once I got to your comment, though, I remembered right away how Graham got to be pretty liberal in his old age.

    Thanks for sharing this one. It was a fun challenge!

  2. Billy Graham! Well, OK! I'm surprised... :D
