Franklin Graham is criticizing Hillary Clinton this week for her now-infamous "deplorables" comment, wondering if she has considered the gravity of sin and ones standing before Almighty God.
Writing on his Facebook page Wednesday, the evangelist recounted Clinton's remarks on September 10 at a New York City fundraiser in front of an LGBT group where she generalized that half of Donald Trump's supporters amount to a "basket of deplorables."
The former Secretary of State told donors at a Manhattan restaurant that such supporters were "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that, and he has lifted them up." more >>
It is never too late to make restitution for past transgressions, even if the person who was wronged is no longer around, says the Rev. Billy Graham.
In an advice column published on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website on Monday, a person asked the famed evangelist about how to compensate for a past sin.
"I stole some money from my employer (a doctor) over 40 years ago, and I still feel very guilty over it. I'd pay it back (with interest), but neither he nor his medical practice is still around. What does God want me to do? Or does it make any difference now?" they asked. more >>
The Bible issues a warning against those who claim there's no such thing as evil or sin because there's no difference between right and wrong, says the Rev. Billy Graham.
In a question-and-answer column published on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website on Friday, a person wrote to Graham saying they never feel guilty about anything they do becasue they simply "don't believe there's such a thing as right or wrong."
Graham responded that he was saddened to hear that the person did not consciously accept the belief that there is a right and a wrong. more >>
Pastor Saeed Abedini, a former American hostage who was held for three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith, said on the 15th anniversary of 9/11 that Muslims started a war on Christianity with the terror attacks.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine has tried to explain in a recent speech how he reconciles his Christian faith with his support for LGBT issues, and suggested that the Roman Catholic Church, which he is a member of, may one day embrace gay marriage too.
"As a devout Catholic, for a long time while I was battling for LGBT equality, I believed that marriage was something different," Kaine said at the 20th annual Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington on Saturday, according to CBS News.
"I had a difficult time reconciling that reality with what I knew to be true from the evidence of my own life, with the teachings of the faith that I had been raised in for my entire life," he added. more >>
