In response to a reader's concerns for their grandchildren who will never know what it's like to start each school day off with a prayer, the Rev. Billy Graham says while he doesn't believe prayer will ever return to public schools, there are other ways students can talk to God throughout their day.
"Do you think we'll ever get back to the days when they allowed prayer in our public schools?" the grandparent asked, emphasizing that they found the absence of prayer and other religious practices within schools to be troubling.
"When I was young, we used to pray and read the Bible in school every day, but my grandchildren aren't able to experience this, and it upsets me a great deal." more >>
People should never think that God hates them just because they live with a disability or suffer from physical problems, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In his advice column on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, a person who has a physical disability asked Graham why God allowed them to have physical problems.
Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of world renowned evangelist Billy Graham, is asking why people keep resisting and arguing with God despite His undisputed power.
"If God is undisputed in His power in the universe — and He is — why do we argue with Him, resisting His authoritative claim on our lives?" Lotz asked in a Facebook post on Monday.
"He created you and me, He bought us at Calvary, and He is the only One Who has the right to rule our lives. Would you yield the reins of the government of your life to Him? You and I need to stop resisting His will, stop arguing about His purpose, stop complaining about His methods, and just submit to His authority." more >>
Evangelist Franklin Graham congratulated American underdog Maya DiRado, who won a gold medal for the 200 backstroke in Rio Olympics and is a Christian, saying her "winning attitude goes far beyond swimming."
"This young woman's winning attitude goes far beyond swimming. She recently told reporters, 'I don't think God really cares about my swimming very much. This is not my end purpose, to make the Olympic team. I think God cares about my soul and whether I'm bringing his love and mercy into the world,'" Graham wrote in a Facebook post Saturday.
DiRado is retiring after the Olympics. She finished the 200 backstroke in 2:05:99 and now has two golds, a silver and a bronze medal, making her one of the breakout stars of the meet for the American team, according to USA Today. more >>

"I know Jesus said we ought to love people, but how do you love someone who's really hard to get along with?" the person asked. more >>
There are three important questions to consider when determining whether or not a church is actually a cult, according to the Rev. Billy Graham.
Recently a person asked the famed evangelist his opinion on the possibility that a given house of worship that they were invited to by a friend was, in fact, a cult.
"My neighbor keeps inviting me to her church (although they don't call it that), but someone told me it's a cult. How can I know?" inquired the person. more >>
