Leading evangelist Franklin Graham says that while his father, world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, rarely addressed issues concerning secular society, he's doing so because unlike when his father grew up, the U.S. is controlled by secularists who want to "deny that Jesus ever existed."
Speaking at the two-day Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference in Oklahoma City, Graham called on all Christians to become more active in their local, state and national politics, urging them to take back control of America's now-secular society that mocks and ridicules Christians for their beliefs.
The 62 year old, who's the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the president of Samaritan's Purse humanitarian organization, explained that many criticize him for chastising secularism because his father did not talk about it. However, Graham explained that his father never needed to address the issue because when his father was growing up, America had a very Christian-oriented society. more >>

"'More Love' comes from taking the temperature of the times we live in," the singer said in a statement alongside her husband, the song's co-writer, Warryn Campbell. "The sense of frustration, anger that we feel, from the civil unrest and tragic deaths in Ferguson, New York, and around the world. We thought it was important to emphasize the importance of love. Love truly does change things. We believe that." more >>
