Evangelical preacher Franklin Graham has taken issue with Oprah Winfrey's new documentary series "Belief," and said it's wrong to suggest there are multiple paths to God.
Graham said in a Facebook message on Monday that the new series, which premiered on Sunday, "looks at a number of religions and might make one think there are many paths to God, as Oprah has said in the past."
"There are not many paths to God or to eternal life with Him. A personal relationship with Almighty God through His Son Jesus Christ is the only thing that can fill the void in the human heart," he said. more >>
