God has the ability to speak to those who believe in Him, even if it's not through an audible voice, the Rev. Billy Graham says.
Graham, founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, says in his "My Answers" question-and-answer column on the organization's website that God can communicate in a variety of ways, including through prayer, the church community, and the Bible.
In response to a question about whether or not God will speak verbally to His followers, Graham explains that while it is possible for God to speak to someone in an audible voice, it's typically "a deep inner conviction about God's will." more >>
Christians should see those who are negative and critical through God's eyes of compassion and love, the Rev. Billy Graham says.
Graham, the world-renowned evangelical leader and founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote in a question-and-answer advice column published in the Kansas City Star that Christians shouldn't allow negative people to poison there souls by offering them love and compassion, just as Jesus would.
While it can be "hard to be around [negative people] or keep them from getting under our skin," Christians must take the high road and avoid allowing critical people from "[poisoning] your own soul," the religious leader writes. more >>
Christians should practice forgiveness for those who have greatly wronged them just as God has forgiven them, the Rev. Billy Graham says.
When asked a question about family reconciliation after a father deserted his children when they were young but was reaching out to them 30 years later, Graham's advice was to forgive, because it will lead to healing.
Evangelist Franklin Graham, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. and leading conservative activist Ralph Reed have offered their thoughts on Donald Trump's meeting with over 900 Evangelical leaders in New York City on Tuesday.
As many are wondering what, if anything, will come out of the much anticipated "conversation" between Trump and America's leading evangelical minds, Graham, Falwell and Reed all participated in a brief panel discussion with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren after the meeting on Tuesday to discuss what they heard from the billionaire real estate mogul.
As many evangelical conservatives have been hesitant to support the presumptive Republican nominee, Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, has been adamant that he will not endorse any presidential candidate in this election cycle and he was the only participant on the Fox News panel who is not a member of Trump's new evangelical executive advisory board. more >>
Leading evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham is denying a rumor that he told hundreds of evangelical leaders who met with Donald Trump on Tuesday anything along the lines that the billionaire real estate mogul is a better option for president than presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Following Trump's "conversation" with over 900 evangelical leaders in New York City, conservative Bishop E.W. Jackson of Virginia, who attended the closed-door meeting, told listeners on a conference call that Graham had implied that Trump provided more "hope" than Clinton. Jackson told The Christian Post in a follow-up interview that Graham did not go as far as to endorse Trump but suggested that Trump is a better alternative.
As Graham is touring all 50 state capitals this year to hold prayer rallies to encourage Christians to get involved in the political process, he has been adamant that he will not be endorsing any presidential candidates. more >>
Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham has slammed the sit-in by House Democrats on Wednesday night protesting against the lack of movement on gun-control bills, asking why politicians are not taking such measures to ban alcohol and vehicle-related deaths.
CNN reported that the sit-in continued on Thursday with no signs of letting up, with close to 20 Democrats, including House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, insisting that they will continue protesting until their Republican colleagues vote on gun-control measures.
"I am tired, I am cold, and I am hungry. Let me remind everyone watching how privileged I am to be tired, cold, and hungry," Florida Rep. Ted Deutch said during the sit-in. "These are feelings that I am privileged to have because so many will never feel that again," he added, referring to victims of gun violence. more >>
