Franklin Graham: ‘America is in trouble’
Franklin Graham has taken to Facebook to warn of the evil that is arising in America.
In his Facebook post, Graham, who is somewhat the unofficial spokesperson for Christian-based comment, has asked people to look at what is in their hearts.
“Many people don’t understand what would be in a person’s heart to spray bullets into a crowd to kill and wound as many as he can,” he said.
“Or what’s in the heart of a person who drives his car across a bridge in London and into a crowd of people, get out with a knife, and stab innocent people and police officers. Or what’s in the heart of a person who would take a knife and cut off the head of another human being. Many don’t understand what’s in the heart of a person who’s a senior attorney for CBS and says she has “no sympathy” for those killed or wounded in Las Vegas simply because people who listen to country music might be Republicans.
“The common thread that runs through the heart of each of these is evil. The Bible says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). Evil exists in the world today and the Bible warns us that “because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12).
“We see a rise in wickedness, not just in this country but around the world. And Hollywood filmmakers continue to promote evil, wickedness, violence as a form of entertainment. Our nation is in trouble, and only God can heal the human heart. That’s why Jesus Christ came—to pay the penalty for our sins and to offer forgiveness through faith in Him.
“What’s in your heart today?”
