Evangelist Franklin Graham has said that despite what Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump might claim, his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton is not the devil, and warned that Hell is a real place where millions are going.
"Donald J. Trump has said Hillary Clinton was the devil, but I can assure you that's not the case. The devil is real. Hell is a real place. The Bible says Hell is a place of darkness, a place of eternal torment, a place of 'eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels' (Matthew 25:41)," Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
James Dobson is not mincing words in response to questions from journalists suggesting he is duplicitous for supporting Donald Trump for president, given his previous denunciations of President Bill Clinton's sexual shenanigans.
In light of tapes that surfaced on October 7 where Donald Trump made profane comments about groping women, the host of Family Talk, who also founded Focus on the Family, did not hold back in a statement released Tuesday.
"First, I do not condone nor defend Donald Trump's terrible comments made 11 years ago," Dobson said. more >>

"I believe we are planting seeds today that when full grown will bear the fruit of a vital Wesleyan witness and a dynamic Spirit-filled Methodism across the globe," he added while speaking at the conference, as reported by UMC.org. more >>
Several notable evangelical women leaders, some of whom have themselves experienced sexual assault, are expressing their disgust at the response of Christian leaders to Donald Trump's 2005 lascivious comments about groping women that surfaced October 7.
On Twitter, popular teacher and evangelist Beth Moore said Friday in a string of Tweets that she was one such victim.
"I'm one of many sexually abused, misused, stared down, heckled, talked naughty to. Like we liked it. We didn't. We're tired of it," Moore said. more >>
Harvest Bible Church Pastor James MacDonald recently denounced Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's 2005 comments on women as "lecherous and worthless."
Pastor MacDonald was part of Trump's evangelical advisory council, a group of mostly conservative evangelical leaders whose involvement in the council did not necessarily equate to an endorsement of the campaign.
In an email MacDonald sent to members of the council on Saturday, MacDonald argued that Trump's 2005 comments were worse than mere "locker room banter." more >>
