Evangelical preacher Franklin Graham has taken issue with Oprah Winfrey's new documentary series "Belief," and said it's wrong to suggest there are multiple paths to God.
Graham said in a Facebook message on Monday that the new series, which premiered on Sunday, "looks at a number of religions and might make one think there are many paths to God, as Oprah has said in the past."
"There are not many paths to God or to eternal life with Him. A personal relationship with Almighty God through His Son Jesus Christ is the only thing that can fill the void in the human heart," he said. more >>
Over 1,300 motorcyclists descended upon the Billy Graham Library to donate thousands of presents for children overseas come Christmas.
Known as the eighth annual "Bikers With Boxes," the motorcade of philanthropy came to North Carolina on Saturday loaded with wrapped shoeboxes containing donations for Operation Christmas Child.
"We are amazed each year to see how God grows this event. The weather on Saturday was perfect, and guests were blessed to hear from a former shoebox recipient, award-winning musician Dennis Agajanian, and Franklin Graham," said Sonya Johnson, promotions manager with the Billy Graham Library, to The Christian Post. more >>
Billy Graham recently told a Christian eager to bring his atheist friend to faith that he was "thankful" for their friendship and that he should continue to pray for and love his non-believing friend, no matter how much he rejected God.
In a Q&A published in the Kansas City Star on Tuesday, the 96-year-old evangelist helped ease the frustrations of a Christian reader, by the name of A.F., over the fact that his atheist friend still does not believe in God — even after surviving a near fatal car accident.
A.F. shared the details of his dilemma with the publication. more >>
Evangelist Franklin Graham has said that despite the genocide and various horrific human rights abuses being perpetrated on Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria, the world appears to be largely silent and apatheitc. Graham also called on believers to pray for the end of the "horrendous evil" being done in the name of religion.
"It is genocide — and the world seems largely silent about it. Genocide perpetrated by the Islamic State against Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities of Syria and Iraq. And their methods are unimaginably cruel and heinous," Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.
He recalled a number of the atrocities committed by the Islamic State terror group in the past couple of months, including the murder and crucifixions of groups of Christians, torturing children, raping women, and forced conversions to Islam. more >>
Leading evangelist Franklin Graham has taken to Facebook to speak out against an atheist organization that is threatening to file a lawsuit against a Kentucky town if it fails to remove a cross from atop a community water tower, which is located on the campus of a private Christian university.
On Sept. 29, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, the nation's largest atheist organization, sent an email to the mayor of Wilmore, Harold Rainwater, demanding that the town remove the Christian cross placed atop the water tower located on the campus of Asbury University, explaining that the cross creates the perception that the town officially endorses Christianity over other religions or no religion.
Although the water tower was originally built by the school, it is now owned and operated by the town and also has the town's name written across the side of the structure. Additionally, pictures of the water tower and the cross are posted to the town's official website. more >>
