The Rev. Franklin Graham is encouraging Christians to "get involved in government" and "in politics" in order to work for Christian values against "gays and lesbians in politics" as well as the "anti-God people."
"I'm here to tell you, church, God loves each and every one and Christ died for our sins, and we've got a responsibility to take this message to the ends of the earth," Graham said on Jan. 26 at the Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference. "And I want to encourage you to take a stand in your communities."
Graham went on to encourage those in the audience to get involved in government and politics. more >>
Leading evangelist Franklin Graham says that while his father, world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, rarely addressed issues concerning secular society, he's doing so because unlike when his father grew up, the U.S. is controlled by secularists who want to "deny that Jesus ever existed."
Speaking at the two-day Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference in Oklahoma City, Graham called on all Christians to become more active in their local, state and national politics, urging them to take back control of America's now-secular society that mocks and ridicules Christians for their beliefs.
The 62 year old, who's the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the president of Samaritan's Purse humanitarian organization, explained that many criticize him for chastising secularism because his father did not talk about it. However, Graham explained that his father never needed to address the issue because when his father was growing up, America had a very Christian-oriented society. more >>

There is a growing refrain among non-theists: reading the Bible made me an atheist. Commonly, they point to difficult to understand Old Testament passages, including ones where God allows the death and destruction of humanity as He did with the flood in Genesis and bloody wars against the Canaanites detailed in Deuteronomy.
"Contemporary Christians have had a difficult time trying to come to grips with what they find in the Old Testament, especially those narratives that recount the destruction of whole groups of people by the acts of God," said Thomas Howe, a professor of Bible and Biblical Languages at Southern Evangelical Seminary in Matthews, North Carolina. "Non-Christians capitalize on this and attempt to undermine our faith by calling into question either the goodness of God or even His existence."
A challenge that some non-theists use to undermine the Christian faith is if God is so loving, why does He kill people or why does He encourage His people to commit genocide. more >>
