The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is calling out North Korean media for reporting a false claim that world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham once said that former communist leader Kim Il Sung "might be a God."
According to NKNews.org, North Korea's state newspaper Rodong Sinmun celebrated Kim's 104th birth anniversary by proclaiming last Friday that even foreign religious leaders believe Kim was like a God.
As the 97-year-old Graham visited the North Korean capital of Pyongyang in 1992 and 1994, Rodong Sinmun quoted Graham as saying that he met the "greatest of all human beings" who is "the saint of saints." more >>

Popular Christian filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, "the Kendrick brothers" are calling on pastors across the country to lead their congregations in praying more fervently to bring about a revival and a great awakening in America.
"If you look at the history of the Church, the history of revival and the great awakenings, it always was connected to people unifying and praying for the Lord to work in that situation and that's what we want to happen in our generation," Stephen Kendrick says in "A Passion for Parayer" video posted to Fcebook last week. "We cannot walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, we cannot evangelize, we cannot walk in unity in the Body of Christ if we're not praying on a consistent basis."
Joining the Kendrick brothers in the plea for a greater emphasis on prayer in the Christian community is Pastor Tony Evans, head of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas. Evans' daughter, Priscilla, played a leading role in last year's blockuster hit "War Room," which is all about the power of prayer. more >>
Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of famous evangelist Billy Graham, says some Christians are too afraid and ashamed to turn to God because of the mistakes they have made, but reminds believers God has proven His forgiveness and His love through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

"Deep down you're afraid of being found out. And the last thing you want to hear or read is His Word? Because you, too, are ashamed," she added. more >>
