Some are saying that Pastor Franklin Graham shouldn’t be political, or should be more like his father.
An example of the attack he is under is here, at this link…. http://www.christianpost.com/news/franklin-graham-harms-gospel-witness-norway-evangelicals-say-179454/
No. He should NOT mimic his father. Franklin Graham needs to be the man God created him to be – doing the things God purposed him to do. NO ONE knows where God is leading him better than Franklin does.
Evil is rampant in the world. Praise God for those brave enough to stand strong and speak as they ought to speak (Eph 6: 10-20) – as the Lord has commanded them as ambassadors in chains.
As to those who are self-righteously vilifying him – he has this scripture to lean on –
“27 What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops. 28 Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:27-28).
“Therefore men fear Him; He does not regard any who are wise of heart.”Matthew 5:22
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,’ will be subject to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be subject to the fire of hell.Luke 12:5
But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear the One who, after you have been killed, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear Him!Hebrews 10:31
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?
