  • Where are the Bold Authoritative Preachers Today?

    Westside Christian Fellowshihp ^ | Jan 15, 2011 | Shane Idleman
    A friend recently asked, “Where are those with uncompromising power and God-given authority in our pulpits today?” His statement reminded me of the desperate need for passionate, spirit-filled preachers focused on pleasing God rather than man. Our culture’s false perception of God as a cosmic ball of love, or a doting grandfather desperately needs to be challenged. Unfortunately, difficult truths are often compromised, watered-down, or avoided altogether in the hope of “not offending,” “securing an audience,” or building a “mega-ministry.” As a result, the church is a mile wide but only an inch deep; judgment is never mentioned, repentance is...

    Our politicians are set to vote today on the American Health Care Act, to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. Pray that they will do the right thing for the American people. Obamacare is going to fail regardless, so a change has to be made. Many of our politicians are weak morally and spiritually, corrupted by greed and power. Join me in praying for them today as they take this crucial vote. America needs healing that can come from God alone—our hearts need to be healed.

    As soon as the news broke last week that Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie would feature an “exclusively gay moment,” Franklin Graham called for a boycott of Disney in a Facebook post that has since been shared almost 100,000 times. The next day, a drive-in theater in Alabama announced that it would not show the movie, while, even before Franklin Graham’s comment was posted, the conservative group One Million Moms called for a Disney boycott, with a clear warning: “Alerting all parents! In a first for the Disney Channel, a Disney XD show subtly displayed several gay kisses...

    Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of the humanitarian aid mission Samaritan’s Purse and one of the world’s best-known Christian leaders, slammed an upcoming Planned Parenthood fundraiser that will be keynoted by former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Barbara, as akin to raising money for the Nazis during World War II. In a Facebook post, Graham wrote: “Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States. Raising funds for this organization is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp – like Auschwitz, except for innocent babies in their mother’s wombs!

    Rev. Franklin Graham said President Donald Trump is correct about the news media today, that they lie and create "fake news," and added that the media should do what the Bible instructs, "You shall not circulate a false report" (Exodus 23:1). "President Donald J. Trump has been saying what we all know—that the news media has been lying," said Rev. Graham in a Feb. 19 post on Facebook. "In today’s terminology, creating fake news." "Fake news is nothing new," he said. "It was going on in the Bible. When Jesus died on the cross for our sins and was placed...

    Sometimes even the most illustrious words can bury the beauty and the deep meaning of a glorious moment—we will attempt to refrain from burying what may have been the most stirring Presidential inauguration in America’s history with too many words. The crowds across the mall were superbly self-controlled and respectful, all standing as a cross section of America’s best.

    he Council on American-Islamic Relation, a Muslim group that is unlikely to wield the kind of power over the Donald Trump administration as they did over the current president, is calling on Trump to dis-invite Rev. Franklin Graham from Friday’s inauguration ceremony. In a press release, CAIR said that Graham was a “notorious Islamophobe” who had no business speaking at the event. “If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim-rights group designated by the Justice Department as a terrorist co-conspirator, is calling on Donald Trump to drop Rev. Franklin Graham as one of six clergy who will offer prayers at the Jan. 20 inauguration ceremony. In a press release issued this week, CAIR referred to the son of evangelist Billy Graham as a “notorious Islamophobe” “If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not...

    In a radio interview on Saturday, evangelist Franklin Graham said that Christians shouldn’t necessarily be concerned by Donald Trump’s history, because the GOP presidential candidate was one of “many people” who “gave their hearts to Christ” at his father Billy Graham’s 95th birthday party in 2013. Graham was the guest on Saturday’s episode of “The Christian Worldview,” a program hosted by David Wheaton. Wheaton asked Graham, “What do you say to the Christian who has hesitancy for Donald Trump?” “Well, first of all, three years ago this coming Monday my father celebrated his 95th birthday,” Graham replied. “Donald Trump was...

    Illinois Review ^ | 10-18-2016
    WHEATON - While evangelist Billy Graham's son Franklin Graham stands solidly behind the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, students at the elder Graham's alma mater Wheaton College are evidently not in agreement. "Donald Trump is the 'Anti-Chrit'", a misspelled chalking said on the steps of the evangelical school's Billy Graham Center. Although Graham has declared his continuing support for Trump despite videos revealing and rumors suggesting immoral behavior which Graham preaches against, he wrote on his Facebook page this week that he's not condoning Trump's behavior: Continue reading "In front of Billy Graham Center in Wheaton, "Donald Trump is Antichrit""...

    As Donald Trump’s lewd remarks and insults have created a major divide in the political arena, the surprising support from evangelicals have surprised everyone. Pastor Franklin Graham took to his Facebook page Saturday to defend the evangelical leaders who have remained in Trump’s corner. “A lot of people are slamming evangelicals for supposedly giving Donald J. Trump a pass. That’s simply not true. No one is giving him a pass. I’m certainly not, and I’ve not met an evangelical yet who condones his language or inexcusable behavior from over a decade ago. However, he has apologized to his wife, his...

    Christian leader Franklin Graham defended Donald Trump on Friday after a week of unvetted allegations by the liberal media by Hillary Clinton supporters. Franklin reminds Christians this election is not about Donald Trump’s actions from 11 years ago or Hillary Clinton’s many lies. This election is about the future of the Supreme Court and religious freedom. From Franklin’s Facebook page: A lot of people are slamming evangelicals for supposedly giving Donald J. Trump a pass.

    Metro Vancouver Christians are colliding over the coming crusade of televangelist Franklin Graham, who is known for criticizing homosexuals, Muslims and U.S. President Barack Obama. Saying that Graham is often “incendiary and intolerant,” some evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics are opposing his participation in the three-day Festival of Hope event at Rogers Arena in early March, 2017, that many of the city’s mega-churches are supporting . “Rev. Graham is a polarizing figure … His ungracious and bigoted remarks have the potential to generate serious negative impact on the Christian witness in Vancouver,” says a statement from five prominent evangelical and...

    A North Carolina school board has issued recommendations for faculty and staff to stop calling male children "boys" and female students "girls." The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools gave a presentation to principals and counselors entitled “Supporting Transgender Students” that focused on "bully prevention." Among the various means of preventing bullying is eliminating all references to boys or girls. Instead, the policy instructs staff to call boys and girls "students" or "scholars." The presentation explained a new set of guidelines for faculty and staff to follow regarding transgender students. For instance, teachers will be required to "work with students" to help them determine...

    I’ve been in New York this morning to attend a meeting organized by Dr. Ben Carson and others who invited Donald J. Trump to speak to evangelical Christian leaders from across the country. Governor Mike Huckabee was moderator and Mr. Trump answered questions on a wide range of issues. Dr. James Dobson asked the first question–he asked Mr. Trump what he would do concerning religious liberty issues. Mr. Trump said the number one thing he could do for religious liberty would be to appoint great Supreme Court justices and he reminded everyone that the next president could appoint up to...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham says Target CEO Brian Cornell is in denial over the reason for the company's plunging stock prices, insisting that the conservative boycott against the retailer's transgender bathroom policies is playing a key role. "Target stock is tumbling after they announced a pro-transgender restroom policy allowing men to use women's bathrooms and changing rooms. Stock value has fallen 20 percent and shareholder value has lost $10 billion since they began promoting this dangerous policy," Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Monday. He then referred to a media statement made by Cornell, where he denied suggestions that...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham has strongly condemned Mayor Bill de Blasio's call for a boycott of popular fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, which is opening a new location in the New York City borough of Queens, just because its Christian owners believe in the biblical definition of marriage. "Can you imagine a city where a popular, successful business is singled out and attacked by the mayor who calls for a boycott — all because the business owners let it be known that they operate by Christian principles and believe in God's definition of marriage?" Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and Billy...
