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 >>
Franklin Graham says he's standing with the nearly 1 million people who have signed a petition to boycott Target over its new bathroom policy that allows men to go into women's bathrooms if they identify as female.
"Target is putting its shareholders — and its customers — at risk! Just since last Wednesday over [854,000] people have signed a pledge to boycott Target over its new bathroom policy that welcomes employees and guests to use the restrooms or fitting rooms that 'corresponds with their gender identity.' Target certainly has the prerogative to make this decision, but it's proving to be bad for business," Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday about the American Family Association's petition.
"I'm glad people are standing up and letting them know this is wrong. I agree with the American Family Association — this policy encourages sexual predators and puts women and children in danger. A man shouldn't be able to enter the women's restroom or dressing room because he says he 'feels like a woman today.' That's ridiculous," Graham continued. more >>
Those who have yet to turn to Christ will find life's greatest joy if they do, evangelist Billy Graham writes.
Responding to a question posted to the Kansas City Star, Graham, 97, explains that there are two important reasons why people should make the decision to give their life to Jesus: in preparation for death and to find the joy only a relationship with Jesus can give.
The preacher begins his message by saying that shutting your ears and heart to God's call is the most "serious mistake you will ever make," because we never know when our time to face death and judgment will come. more >>
While all Christians are children of God like Jesus, there is something exceedingly special about God's only son, the Rev. Billy Graham wrote in a recent post.
Responding to a question posted on the Kansas City Star, the 97-year-old evangelical leader explained that although God breathed life into all of us, Jesus is uniquely different than any other person who has ever lived.
It is wrong to think that "we're just like Jesus, and Jesus is just like us," Graham writes. "Jesus Christ is unlike any other person who ever lived — or ever will live." more >>
