Leading evangelist Franklin Graham announced that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will no longer host the "first-of-its-kind" World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians in Moscow following Russia's passing of new laws that severely restrict religious liberties.
In March, Graham announced that the international persecution summit was going to be held in Moscow between October 28-30 because "no church in modern history has suffered more than the church in Russia." Additionally, the conference was to be co-organized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
Last month, Russian president Vladimir Putin signed so-called anti-terrorism bills into law that infringes on the rights of missionaries and evangelists. more >>
Being stubborn can be a destructive character trait, says the Rev. Billy Graham, in response to a man who's not sure he wants to go to Heaven because he doesn't want to lose his freedom by having God tell him what to do.
In a recently published advice column, a person queried Graham about the concern he had about being a "control freak" and not wanting to give up his freedom.
The Rev. Billy Graham says if he had to name the most convincing evidence for God's existence, it would be none other than Jesus Christ.
In his nationally syndicated advice column published on Tuesday, the 97-year-old evangelist was asked to provide one convincing piece of evidence to prove that God exists.
"I grew up in a religious family, but I outgrew all that years ago, and now I don't believe in God. Can you give me even one reason — just one — why I should believe in God?" the person asked. more >>
The words of the Bible promise a better world than one that science and technology could ever create, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In Thursday's "My Answers" post on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, Graham was asked where one can find the promise of a better future in light of modern upheavals.
"I used to believe that if we just worked hard enough and tried to understand each other, we'd make the world a peaceful place, but I'm not so sure anymore. Does the Bible give us any hope for a better world?" asked the person. more >>
The Rev. Billy Graham gives an awe-inspiring answer to a 6-year-old boy's question: "Where did God come from?"
In response to the question posed by the son of a reader of Graham's syndicated column published in the Kansas City Star, the world renowned evangelist said: "God has always existed, and He always will, because He had no beginning and He will have no end."
While it might be possible to comprehend that God is eternal, the fact that He has always existed and has no beginning can be a mind-bending concept for many Christians, even adults. Graham understands this. more >>
Evangelist Franklin Graham said allowing tens of thousands of Muslim refugees into the United States, as President Barack Obama wants, could mean attacks on Christians in the country just as they are being targeted elsewhere, pointing to the killing of a Christian priest in Normandy, France, last week.
"President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and some other politicians want to allow tens of thousands of Muslim refugees into this country. A few days ago two Muslim men went into a Catholic Church in France in the name of ISIS and brutally slit the throat of an 85-year-old priest," Graham, president of Samaritan's Purse and Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote in a Facebook post.
"The self-proclaimed ISIS soldiers shouted 'Allahu Akbar' as they ran from the church," Graham pointed out, adding, "Unless something is done, it's just a matter of time before we see this happen here in the United States." more >>
