I think everything that can be said about Franklin Graham has been said. I have never even heard one of his sermons, and donât much care to. Iâm pretty sure heâs a compromiser just like his dad was. I just think itâs ridiculous to reject him just because he has money. But if Jim had an honest bone in his body heâd admit that the real reason he hates FG is because Graham is guilty of the unpardonable sin of being white. Incidentally, I HAVE heard MLK preach, and as far as I can tell the only âgospelâ he knew was the social gospel of the elevation of black people. Hell will be full of his converts.
Jim, there is nothing in the Bible that indicates that poverty in itself is a virtue. According to your reasoning, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Job, David and Solomon were all lost church members. If Franklin Graham is lost because he is rich, then so were all of these Bible charactersânot to mention Boaz and others. By the way, my figures about MLK may not be accurate, but it really doesnât matter. Maybe he didnât covet other menâs moneyâjust their wives.
Jim, you have made it very clear that Franklin Grahamâs net worth of approximately ten million dollars really bothers you. Yet just recently you lauded Martin Luther King, Jr., and if his net worth at the time of his death were adjusted for inflation it would equal almost two million dollars today. Jim, for a fellow who is so quick to pull the âracistâ trigger you sure donât seem to recognize your own racial prejudice. Like nearly all liberals you are a two-faced hypocrite.
Thanks, Protestant. If there are any Christians who are not imperfect, theyâre in heaven. Jim must be sleeping in. (I guess he overdosed on Cheetos last night.). Surely the upright, erudite, outasight corn country philosopher wonât miss a chance to bash Franklin.
Jim wrote, âWe must win them to Christ that they might live wholly for God.â Amen, Jim!!! Amen, amen, amen! By the way, how many have you personally won to Christ? Thousands? Hundreds? Scores? ANY? And are you living wholly for Godâor mostly for sociopolitical issues such as âfreeâ healthcare and deposing the president?
The scriptures are clear on this issue: If a Christian wants to observe a special day, he is free to do so, and if he doesnât want to he is free to refrain. What we are NOT free to do is try to shove our personal preferences in the matter down the throats of our fellow believers, and that is exactly what John has been doing all along.
Donât worry about John, QC. Heâs fine. His doctrine is fine. His opinionsâand brother, does he have opinions!âare fine. His church is fine. Oh wait, he doesnât have a churchâbut if he did, it would be fine.
