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 >>
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 >>
Christians should never feel like it's too late to renew their relationship with God, the Rev. Billy Graham wrote in a recent post.
Graham, a Baptist minister and founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, made his comments this week for the "My Answers" portion of his website, writing that no matter how far you've turned from God, He has not turned His back on you.
The evangelical preacher uses the classic example of the prodigal son from Luke 15:11-32, explaining that although the son turned away from his family and attempted to live independently, he was welcomed back home with open arms and love by his father. more >>
Christians must take the dangers of sin and going against God seriously, and understand that no human is perfect, the Rev. Billy Graham explains.
"Sin is like a deadly disease that touches everything we do and everything we are. Yes, you may be a good and moral person whose life isn't marred by obvious sins. But what about your inner thoughts and motives? What about your pride? What about the things you should be doing but fail to do — the people you ought to help, the person who needs a kind word, the person you ought to be praying for but don't?" the 97-year-old evangelical leader asks in a Q&A column for the My Answers section of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website.
Some Christians might be missing two major details about sin, an understanding of the depth of sin and the cost of sin, Graham asserts, citing 1 John 1:8: "If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us." more >>
