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 >>
Why do some people believe the Bible teaches that their race is superior if Jesus Christ died for everyone? What does the Bible say about race?

Addressing the question about racial supremacy and the Bible, the Rev. Billy Graham explained to the inquiring person that what they were taught during their upbringing "is not what the Bible teaches." Jesus Christ died for all people regardless of their racial or ethnic background. more >>

Just because a person should pray for guidance doesn't mean they shouldn't think things through, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In a syndicated advice column published in the Kansas City Star on Sunday, a person queried Graham about how some of her relatives always resorted to prayer when making a decision.
"My sister and her husband are always praying about decisions they have to make, but I think they just need to use their brains to decide what to do. After all, why did God give us a brain if he didn't expect us to use it?" asked the person. more >>
Responding to racial tensions that have resurfaced in America over the past two years, Anne Graham Lotz is urging Christians to open their Bibles and take four actions to bring healing to their communities and the nation.
"As I've read reports of shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota ... as I've shared the agony of a nation that is reeling from the cold-blooded, deliberate, pre-planned murder of police officers … as I've watched the eruption of anarchy in the streets … as I've wept with grief almost deeper than words but expressed by a silent scream in my heart … I've asked the Lord, What are we to do," Lotz wrote on her website Monday.
"Is there anything ordinary, good people can do?" she asked. more >>
