Why share this here? I believe it is very important to know what directives Graham will be giving because it is clear that today's GOP politics and voting base depends heavily on the Evangelical teachings.
A new movie called The Cross will be included in the broadcast. Here's the official trailer. Click this link if the video below isn't working for you.
The Rev. Franklin Graham, son of the world-renowned evangelist, told Newsmax TV that the event will be his father's "last call."You can find TV listing for your area here.
"It is a tremendous film. It'll be his last call. It's called My Hope America. My father has hope. Ever since he was 16 years of age he's had hope and that's because at 16 he gave his life to Christ," said Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Over 25,000 churches are signed up to participate in the 30-minute broadcast event, which culminates a ministry that has traveled the globe for decades as Graham, who turns 95 years old on the first day of the Nov. 7-10 event, shared the gospel of Jesus Christ to the far corners of the world.
I wonder if Graham will address the split that is emerging in the Evangelical community similar to the split in the GOP?
The biggest casualty of the Tea Party takeover of the GOP is not the Republican brand but the evangelical Billy Graham style brand.It is my personal prayer that the youth will return to the true teachings of Christianity, the greatest of which is LOVE ONE ANOTHER. It sounds like there is hope.
Issues like poverty relief, human trafficking and the environment have begun to supplant abortion and stopping gay marriage as what the younger evangelical set care about.
Now, to the degree that the Tea Party and the evangelical brand are conflated in the public mind, the evangelical movement has just taken a potentially fatal body blow.
What will live on is not the Billy Graham legacy of good humored albeit strict fundamentalist frontier-style 19th century revivalism, but the mean side of 21st century evangelical faith typified by Franklin’s off-the-wall attacks on President Obama, and his Tea Party-style lies and rants.
It is a sad legacy that Billy Graham's son is far to the right of Jesus' message. This article was published way back in November, 2012.
Franklin Graham's prescient words have huge resonance today, after the GOP shutdown the government, which threatened to take the economy of the US and the world to the brink of economic disaster.
Do Franklin's 2012 words help explain the GOP shutdown?
As Graham denounced the Obama years, Newsmax's Kathleen Walter asked, "So we've become too secular a nation? How do we bring God back into government?" Graham replied:I respectfully ask that the comment thread not devolve into an argument between believers and non-believers.
Maybe God will have to bring our nation down to our knees—to where you just have a complete economic collapse. And maybe at that point, maybe people will again begin to call upon the name of almighty God.
Economic calamity was the one option Graham mentioned—as if only such a disaster could move the United States in the right direction.
Despite his harsh feelings concerning Obama's leadership, Graham said God commands him and Christians to "pray for those in authority." Consequently, he said, "I would encourage everyone to pray for the president…We need to bathe him prayer"—presumably, before the final (economic) days come.
The issue at hand is much larger that personal beliefs. It is a fact that radical Evangelicals and Catholics have joined forces.
The future of our democracy and the directions taken to avoid a Theocratic takeover is the issue at hand. The marriage between the Koch Cabal billions and the Evangelical community have joined forces.
It is these forces that will try to elect a President in 2014.
What is true is the split between people of all beliefs that are fighting for a fair, socially responsible America and people who want a theocratically dominated America.
Will the tolerant win over the intolerant?
Can we discuss this instead thread jacking with attacks anyone's beliefs please?
Will Graham's message have an impact?
