Franklin Graham: Lift Up Your Head

Scroll down to leave a comment on how you keep your head up to God in dark times. We all know the terrible toll that the COVID-19 virus has taken on countries around the globe. The pandemic has taken more than 5.5 million lives worldwide, including more than 850,000 here in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 has become the third-leading cause of death, behind cancer and heart disease (obviously not counting abortion). As horrific as those totals are, the disease has not only attacked our health but also our society. Illicit drug […]

Franklin Graham: The Antidote to Fear

Scroll down to leave a comment on how trust in the Lord acted as an antidote to fear. Christ’s followers can trust in the care of our sovereign Lord As we enter into this New Year, I sense that fear has a grip on our nation and our world in a new and profound way. While American families gathered for a hearty Thanksgiving meal, news broke about a new strain of the COVID-19 virus. Named Omicron, the heavily mutated strain was discovered in South Africa, and it wasn’t long before it was found in numerous other countries across the globe, […]

Franklin Graham: The Light of Christ Shines in a Dark World

The world into which Jesus was born 2,000 years ago was a troubled one. Joseph and Mary’s 100-mile journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem to register for a census was due to an empire-wide decree issued by Caesar Augustus. The imperial edict was primarily for the purpose of taxation, which imposed an enormous burden on the working class. Rome had been ruling with an iron fist for more than 100 years. Their army had captured nation after nation, and every city throughout Judea was firmly under their dominion. Poverty was commonplace, and the constant threat of famine and drought had taken […]

Franklin Graham: The Gospel Can’t Be Stopped

(Leave a comment below on a moment where the Gospel gave you hope.) Imagine a nation wracked by killer plagues, divided by cultural factions, rife with corruption and immorality, and all too eager to blame and persecute Christians. A nation whose rulers have rejected almighty God and enthroned themselves. Did you think I was talking about our country and our times?  Actually, I’m thinking about Rome during the early years of the church.  “The greatest threat to our nation is sin.” In the New Testament era, the Roman Empire was a superpower that would soon be headed down a slippery […]

Franklin Graham: Living as People of the Cross

(Leave a comment below on what you feel it means to live as a “person of the Cross.” ) Like many Americans, I was appalled and sickened by the images of desperate Afghan citizens clinging to the undercarriage of a C-47 transport plane at the Kabul airport as they sought to flee the return of the Taliban’s brutal rule. When the news came that 13 American service members had died at the hands of a suicide bomber, my heart broke. I could only think of wives and husbands, parents, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters, aunts and uncles, who would never […]

Franklin Graham: Grateful for Those Who Will Never Back Down

The U.S. Supreme Court will soon convene for its fall term, with a number of significant cases to consider. Cases that have come before the current court relating to religious freedom have turned up mixed results—even with the conservative justices appointed by the prior administration. It appears as if the court is willing to somewhat protect the religious rights of institutions, but on very narrow grounds. And it’s extremely troubling that the justices have failed to rule on behalf of believers who have been persecuted by state and federal agencies for their personal faith and Biblical convictions. This summer, Barronelle […]

Franklin Graham: Standing Strong for Christ

(Comment below on what it takes to be standing strong for Christ.) In this day when the immoral pressures of our decadent culture are growing stronger and more belligerent by the moment, it’s encouraging to see those who are standing strong in Christ. That’s certainly true in the field of higher education, where the new administration in Washington is doing all it can to reverse policies put in place under President Trump to protect Christian schools grounded in Biblical convictions. The extraordinary push by the brazen LGBTQ lobby with the backing of the current administration (especially Health and Human Services […]

Franklin Graham: Hope in an Age of Lawlessness

(Scroll down to leave a comment on this lawlessness) On April 28, my hometown of Boone, North Carolina, was shaken by a horrible tragedy that took the lives of two of our county sheriff’s deputies, Sgt. Chris Ward and K-9 Deputy Logan Fox, who were ambushed when they answered a call to check on residents. In the days following, we saw an incredible outpouring of sympathy and respect for our law enforcement men and women. When the bodies of Sgt. Ward and Deputy Fox were transported from Winston-Salem back to Boone, law enforcement personnel from numerous counties and towns, along […]

Franklin Graham: God’s Word Is Always True

Two years ago, we held an evangelistic Crusade in the seaside town of Blackpool, England. Nine thousand people came to hear us proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Hundreds made confessions of faith! This was in spite of intense opposition from the LGBTQ community, which objected to the advertising message on public transportation buses. The ads simply said “Time for Hope.” The gay activists were successful at the time in pressuring officials to remove our ads from the sides of the buses. However, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association coordinated with the Lancashire Festival trustees to take the matter […]
