The Rev. Franklin Graham charged in an exclusive Newsmax TV interview that America is in a deep economic quagmire because we have turned our backs on God.
The more we turn our backs on God, the bigger our problem becomes, Graham, the son of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, tells Newsmax in a wide-ranging interview. I didnt hear any of the candidates say that we needed to call our nation to prayer. I didnt hear any of the candidates say that we needed to ask God for help.

Franklin seems to go off into the "both parties are to blame" theme...but let's face it: the Democrat party has been the one shoving sodomy down our throats, cheering infanticide, and booing when God and Israel are mentioned in their platform.
The two parties are NOT the same.
Well Franklin, which God did we turn our backs on?
There’s no “I” in “We”.
So why did Franklin’s dad remove the mormonism-is-a-cult link on his website? Will he renew it now that the mormon candidate for president has lost the election?
God has turned his back on us too.
People that depend on Free Stuff from Obama have no need of God. Obama has become their God.
A lot of the things he said are right. Bring up God in public, you will get sued. Removing God from our schools was wrong. People of character are needed for high office. He admitted that Romney had a problem with voters- (Mormonism)
My first take at your post was negative - not sure I would say it like that etc. But let’s see. God allows pain, suffering, free will and sin to occur in this world. God allowed Hitler to slaughter 6M jews, Stalin, Mao, etc. God DID allow Obama to screw us around royally and get reelected. so maybe the way you stated it isn’t far off.
Having said all that I am not sure the reverse is necessarily true. I don’t believe if this country was as God fearing and as obedient as possible that we would necessarily be spared any suffering either. Jesus told us it would not be easy
I have been having a really bad livid at God day, some days are better than others
Balaam - had to have a jackass speak to him to the Angel of the Lord that was going to strike him dead to get his attention.
Jonah had to be swallowed up by a whale and be regurgitated up on the land to get his attention to get his eyes back onto God’s will
samson had his eyes gouged out and his hair cut off because he straye from God’s directive.
Just maybe America needs a 2X4 up side the head to wake up the American people. the number of businesses laying off people is waking up many as what will happen to the good ole USA with full implementation of ObamaCare.
There is no such thing as free lunch. Obama may promise many freebies, but can he continual deliver all the freebies for a long period time? Eventually the freebies will run out because the people who have paying for the freebies no longer can afford to pay for the freebies for others whom believed they are entitled to them .
We have voted in leaders to bring about our own destruction.shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
Our elected leaders have pandered to
the most perverse and perverted agenda.
We as a Nation have cursed YHvH after His warnings.
We have called down on ourselves the curse of Isaiah 9:11-21
After years of pagan idolatry, YHvH allowed the hedge
of protection to be lowered and the nation of Israel
was attacked by the Assyrians.
On September 11, 2001, YHvH allowed a breach in our hedge of protection.
The following day, Democrat Tom Daschle called down a curse on America.
On September 11, 2004, Democrat John Edwards repeated the curse on America.
On February 24, 2009 Democrat Barack Hussein Obama repeated the curse for the third time.
(Matthew 18:16; 2 Cr 13:1; Deu 19:15 & Amos 3:12)
The stock market fell 7% on Sept 17, 2001
( 29 day of the month of Elul)
Seven years later on the 29th of Elul,
it fell again 7 %
At the end of each Sabbatical year,
all debts are made worthless.
Seven years after the attack on September 11, 2001,
We elected a man to lead this country whose
whole persona is built on lies.
In 721 BCE, the walls of Israel were breached.
The nation's leaders with pride and in arrogance
of heart cursed YHvH.
See Isaiah 9:10.
Isaiah 9:9 .....Asserting in pride and in arrogance of heart:
Isaiah 9:10 "The bricks have fallen down,
But we will rebuild with smooth stones;
The sycamores have been cut down,
But we will replace them with cedars."
This nation was dedicated in St Paul's chapel
located at the corner of Ground Zero.
The Sycamore tree at St Paul's chapel
was destroyed by a steel beam from
the World Trade Center.
The New York Stock Exchange was
chartered under a Sycamore tree.
Ten years after the initial breach
the nation of Israel was attacked
and overrun by the Assyrians.
Half the nation was captured
and taken off to imprisonment.
I love metaphors;
they teach those who have ears to hear.
For more information buy the book Harbinger
by Jonathan Cahnif my people,Seek YHvH in His WORD !
who are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.
Ask and you will receive His Salvation !
To refute your “America will wake up”
argument, one word:
The Greeks are all rioting to get their
do-nothing government “jobs” back.
“But we are the United States of America...”
The Greek nation-states included the
tough-as-nails Spartans and the
Log Cabin Republicans come to mind. What we say and what we do may be a little different.
Boehner is a disgrace and McConnel is no Conservative either. Neither take a stand on any issue unless they are sure they cant win.
Well which one comes to mind?
Good points! Well said.
