Evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham says while he can't tell Christians who to vote for in the upcoming presidential election in November, he will continue to emphasize that the 2016 election is "the most critical in our lifetime," and encourage people to get informed about the issues.
"I'm not telling people who to vote for, but I am telling Christians to vote. I believe the election coming up in November is the most critical in our lifetime — so much hangs in the balance," Graham wrote in a Facebook message on Monday.
"Do everything you can to make sure your family members and friends are registered to vote as well. Read up on the candidates and pray about who you should vote for," he added. more >>
A person should fill their mind with truth and not with pornography, says Saddleback Church senior pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren.

Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries says the Bible warns believers not to become people who stir conflict or spread lies, because God doesn't approve of gossip and slander.
"I have never seen a culture and a society so obsessed with gossip, innuendo and rumor. People are looking for the next juicy piece of gossip," Laurie wrote in a Facebook message on Saturday.

The tragic thing today is that if someone is charged with a crime, he or she is tried and convicted in the media before even having had the opportunity to go into a court of law, have evidence presented and face the people doing the accusing." more >>
As an evangelical and member of the Global Advisory Board of Christian Post's parent company, I was heartbroken to read CP's recent editorial telling evangelicals that we have a moral obligation to vote and must vote for either Donald Trump or a protest candidate.
I see three options for evangelicals in this election and none of them include voting for Trump. Evangelicals can morally justify a protest vote for a third party, not vote at all, or join the 30%+ of evangelicals saying they'll vote for Hillary Clinton.
What we cannot do is to cast our vote for Donald Trump. The harm to the Christian witness if we support this man who embodies everything Christ warned Christians against in the Sermon on the Mount would last generations. more >>
