World renowned evangelist Billy Graham revealed what he thinks is the greatest spiritual mistake people often make.
Graham wrote in a May 2 post for his Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website that when it comes to spending your life in eternity, your good acts are not enough to God.
This is because according to the Bible, the only way we could reach God's standard of goodness is by being completely perfect. Graham cites Habakkuk 1:13, which reads: "Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrongdoing." more >>
The Reverend Franklin Graham recently denounced former Speaker of the House John Boehner for calling Sen. Ted Cruz "Lucifer in the Flesh."
On his Facebook page, Rev. Graham posted a comment Friday in response to Boehner's referring to Sen. Cruz as being the Devil incarnate.
"Former Speaker of the House John Boehner shame on you! You had no business calling Ted Cruz 'Lucifer in the flesh' — this is an embarrassment. And it's an embarrassment to our nation," wrote Graham. more >>
The key to a successful marriage is building its foundation on Christ, the Rev. Billy Graham says, giving advise to husbands embarking on one of life's greatest journeys with their bride.
Graham, a 97-year-old evangelical leader and Baptist minister, shared his wise words in a post this week for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's "My Answers" page, saying that in order to have a successful marriage, such a union must be founded in a mutual love for Christ.
To have a God-focused and God-filled marriage, both spouses must "see [their] marriage as a gift from God." more >>
Christian mission trips can be of great benefit for all involved, the Rev. Billy Graham writes.
Graham, a 97-year-old Baptist minister, wrote in a post for the Kansas City Star that parents should encourage their children to partake in international mission trips, as they are extremely beneficial for those giving and receiving the charitable services.
Mission trips can be one of the most "memorable and significant things" a Christian does, Graham contends. more >>
Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, says the United States is entering a "phase of judgment" for its increasing rejection of Christianity.
"Romans 1 describes the type of judgment where we sin, and we refuse to repent of our sin, then He backs away from us," Lotz said last week during an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, discussing the spiritual health of the nation.
"He removes Himself from us and He turns us over to ourselves. That's what I think I see in America. I believe we're entering into that phase of judgment, where God is backing away." more >>
With the help of faith, Christians can overcome lustful temptations before they become too domineering, the Rev. Billy Graham wrote in a recent post.
Graham, who is considered to be one of the most famous evangelical leaders in the world, made his comments in a column for the Kansas City Star, writing that such seemingly-innocent lustful acts, like looking at sexy magazines, can be a slippery slope to a greater obsession with pornography.
The evangelical leader cites Ephesians 5:3, which states: "Among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity." more >>
