Evangelist Franklin Graham has said that despite what Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump might claim, his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton is not the devil, and warned that Hell is a real place where millions are going.
"Donald J. Trump has said Hillary Clinton was the devil, but I can assure you that's not the case. The devil is real. Hell is a real place. The Bible says Hell is a place of darkness, a place of eternal torment, a place of 'eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels' (Matthew 25:41)," Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
A new poll finds that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's support among evangelical Christians is plummeting.
On Friday, a recording of comments Trump made in 2005 that disparaged women was released to the public, causing severe backlash from Republicans and other supporters.
The Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll was conducted Sunday night, after the presidential debate, and released Monday. It suggests that Trump's support among evangelical voters has also taken a blow due to the controversy. more >>

Did Jesus Christ really sweat blood the night before his Crucifixion as he struggled with the prospect of His torture and death?
Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel had been hesitant to accept this concept while a non-believer, recently telling The Christian Post, "I thought this was hyperbole or legend. Certainly people don't actually sweat blood!"
Strobel's desire to verify the claim led him to consult an expert on the Crucifixion, Dr. Alexander Metherell, MD, PhD. more >>
The Wesleyan Covenant Association, a newly formed evangelical group of clergy and laity seeking to have the United Methodist Church go in a theologically conservative direction, held its inaugural one-day conference in Chicago, Illinois, on Friday that was attended by over 1,800 people.
"I am convinced God is doing a new thing among those of us who claim the historic, Orthodox, evangelical, Wesleyan expression of our faith," said the Rev. Jeff Greenway of Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church near Columbus, Ohio, who is one of the leaders of the WCA, according to Good News magazine.
"I believe we are planting seeds today that when full grown will bear the fruit of a vital Wesleyan witness and a dynamic Spirit-filled Methodism across the globe," he added while speaking at the conference, as reported by UMC.org. more >>
Mormon political commentator Glenn Beck has strongly criticized conservative Christians who are still backing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump despite the recently released video exposing lewd comments against women, and argued that believing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is worse is not an excuse.
"You chose to support him. Many while we still had some of the best choices the right has had in my lifetime. It is that choice that we will all regret in the end. What are you going to say at the judgment seat? 'Lord, but Hillary?'" Beck wrote on Facebook on Sunday night ahead of the presidential debate.
He continued: "It sickens me to read the posts from 'conservative Christians.' The very same people who lectured the left about Bill Clinton. I thought character mattered. Does it still? Or is that just for Democrats?" more >>
