Franklin Graham is under major attack because of this statement

Liberals carry politics to every aspect of life.

And that includes a gathering led by evangelical preacher Franklin Graham.

He’s catching serious heat because of one statement.

Now that Trump is President, he is carrying out the agenda he campaigned on.

Part of that agenda included his executive order banning travel for 90 days from seven countries with known ties to terrorism.

In a facebook post, Graham backed Trump’s executive order.

The Christian Post reports:

“Taking action to secure our borders had to start somewhere. Is it perfect? Maybe not, but it is a first step. As they work on solutions during this 90-day travel ban, unfortunately there are some innocent families caught in this time of transition,” Graham noted.

Graham, who is the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the aid organization Samaritan’s Purse, added that he believes that the screening process needs to apply to everyone, not just to people from the seven countries listed on the executive order.

“We have to be sure that the philosophies of those entering our country are compatible with our Constitution. If a person does not agree with our principles of freedom, democracy, and liberty, which we cherish, they should not be allowed to come. Without question, Sharia [Islamic] law is not compatible,” he continued.

The liberal Huffington Post asked Graham about Trump’s executive order and if it complied with a biblical outlook.

Graham defended the order by stating that open borders aren’t in the Bible.

The Huffington Post reports:

“The Huffington Post spoke with Graham on Wednesday, and asked whether it’s possible to reconcile Trump’s temporary ban on refugees with the Christian commandment to welcome, clothe and feed the stranger, and to be a Good Samaritan to those in need.

Graham said he doesn’t believe those two things need to be reconciled.

“It’s not a biblical command for the country to let everyone in who wants to come, that’s not a Bible issue,” Graham told HuffPost. “We want to love people, we want to be kind to people, we want to be considerate, but we have a country and a country should have order and there are laws that relate to immigration and I think we should follow those laws.

Because of the dangers we see today in this world, we need to be very careful.”

Liberals were outraged.

In response, Baptist groups in Puerto Rico announced they would boycott Graham’s planned rally in that San Juan.

The Christian Post reports:

“Some Baptists groups in Puerto Rico have said they will no longer support Franklin Graham’s evangelistic rally in San Juan this weekend because he supports President Donald Trump’s policies, claiming they are “contrary to the values of the Kingdom.”

In a Feb. 4 statement, written in Spanish by Baptist Churches of Puerto Rico Executive Minister Roberto Dieppa-Báez and President Margarita Ramirez, the groups said they “cannot agree with the expressions of Trump as they attack the life of our neighbor and Jesus has always called us to love even enemies and to be our brother’s keeper.”

But Graham never said we shouldn’t love our enemies or not be our brother’s keeper.

In fact, he explicitly said Americans should be kind to those seeking refuge.

Graham, however, believes that a nation can both have secure borders and live under a biblical code.

  1. Choice, not chance determines destiny. Get it? Caring for illegals costs the U.S. taxpayer $116 billion (net): $46B for education, $23B for law enforcement, $9B in welfare, $29B in medical care (99% of immigrants who enter America illegally use emergency medical services at some point (according to a study by the Federation for American Immigrantion Reform (FAIR). Ten states spend the most on illegals: CA, TX, NY, Florida, NJ, Illinois, Georgia, N.Carolina, AZ & Virginia. The sanctuary cities, states, etc. is an afront to American sovereignty and they must cease to exist. They invite gang violence. The American public want honest immigrants treated fairly and those who commit crimes and/or do not follow the rule of law in this country deported.

  2. F.Graham is right on! It takes a special kind of lunatic to think, that importing welfare recipients who want to kill us is a good idea. Would Islamic countries welcome millions of Christians — let alone Americans, Jews, etc.? We should stop investing in terror! We should be securing U.S. border and the interior against illegal immigration in particular. We must wage political warfare on this matter and do it now! We need a coherent strategy, and a rallied nation with a determined effort on this matter and Trump seems well on the way of filling this bill. Ultimately, we must have at the highest office of our land the commitment to the cause of democracy and the rule of law — or prepare for the worst.

  3. And you think the Spanish Baptist Groups in Puerto Rico (bankrupt) aren’t being influenced by the Obama administration handouts? They are not stupid, they will say whatever is needed to keep our tax dollars flowing to them.

  4. To those who want open borders I have a question: Do you have locks on the door and windows of your home? If so either remove the locks or keep you mouth shut. If you do not you are hypocrites. You locks on your home to protect your family and your things that you have worked hard to get and you want the doors and windows of our nation to have no locks and leave us with no protection from those who would rob and kill.
    I propose to you that you take the locks off your home and make a public announcement that you invite in to your home anyone who wants to come in; anyone who has a home that is not as nice as yours; anyone who is homeless; anyone who wants a better life, etc.
    If you not unlock your home but want our nation to be unlocked then you are a hypocrite not worthy of serious consideration.

  5. Three cheers to Franklin Graham and many praises to our living God. Offering refuge to our enemies is like kissing a rattle snake. You’ll be injected with the poison of death. I served in the United States Air Force for twenty one years to help defend the constution we have were freed by the late 1700’s AD. The enemy was easily identifiable by their position and their battle gear, but since the Islamic teaching that all infidels must be killed became doctrine the enemy now slithers around with backpacks and body explosives seeking whom they may kill and doing it without bounderis. A hateful people who defy our freedom are a people who are not welcomed in the United States nor in any other peace loving Nation. Jesus said to love our enemies as He loved His enemies, but He didn’t tolorate their wicked ways such as Sodom and Gomeria and other sinners who show no desire for Him. Thanks once again to Franklin Graham.

  6. Trust everyone?
    Trust no one?
    I choose :rust no one.”
    Example: Our treaty with Iran has hailed a great success, but Iran violated the treaty the next day. And again later.
    How about North Korea and their ballistic missiles.
    How about the Imam that declares the death of the Great Satan? US?
    The people who oppose the travel band are not citing the correct information. Do you suppose ISIS would make a difference been US citizens and Islamists?

    • Jesus loves everyone but He does not condone evil behavior. He commands we repent of our sins and tun from them. Just as he forgives and remembers them no more, so should we leave such behaviors in our past and practice unconditional love to all men, women, and children. People whose religions command them to do violence and be committed to hatefulness will not be tolerated in our country which was founded upon Christian beliefs and practices.

  7. Most do not want to agree with me, but isn’t that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah because of them not wanting to help other people. I copy and paste some verses from the Bible and it seems like that is what they was saying that is the reason God destroyed them and the surrounding cities.
    In ancient Jewish literature, such as the Ethics of the Fathers and the Talmud, there are many references to Sodom. The phrase “middat Sdom” was used. It may be translated as “the way the people of Sodom thought”. It meant a lack of charity and hospitality towards others; ignoring the needs of the poor, etc. In the Middle East, a person’s survival could depend upon the charity of strangers. To help strangers was a solemn religious duty of paramount importance. See Leviticus 19:33-34 and Matthew 25:35, 38 and 43.

    Isaiah 1; The entire first chapter is an utter condemnation of Judah. They are repeatedly compared with Sodom and Gomorrah in their evildoing and depravity. Throughout the chapter, the Prophet lists many sins of the people: rebelling against God, lacking in knowledge, deserting the Lord, idolatry, engaging in meaningless religious ritual, being unjust and oppressive to others, being insensitive to the needs of widows and orphans, committing murder, accepting bribes, etc. There is no reference to homosexuality or to any other sexual activities at all.

    Jeremiah 23:14:”…among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen something horrible: They commit adultery and live a lie. They strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns from his wickedness. They are all like Sodom to me; the people of Jerusalem are like Gomorrah.” Jeremiah compares the actions of the prophets with the adultery, lying and evil of the people of Sodom. Homosexual activity is not mentioned.

    Ezekeiel 16:49-50:”Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.” God states clearly that he destroyed Sodom’s sins because of their pride, their excess of food while the poor and needy suffered; sexual activity is not even mentioned.

    • Does the Bible have to mention all manifestations of sin every time it mentions any sin? According to your way (liberal??) of thinking, having sex with an animal or committing fornication is not an abomination. God would approve of taking heroin, going to girlie shows to enjoy the entertainment, men leaving the natural use of the woman and burning in their lusts toward one another, etc.

      You need to do serious word studies. You have only shown to us your opinions and have not even explained what is covered by the words “detestable things before me” in the case of Sodom. Do you know what is meant by “the price of a dog”?

  8. I thank God for Franklin Graham. He has stood courageously for the truth of God’s word, though at times not with complete accuracy. The Bible does speak to all issues of life and to all areas of government: self, family, church, and state. Have we ever noted how much of the Bible is written, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, by politicians? And is not the name for Jesus, “King of kings” a political statement? Psalm 2 clearly applies the truth to politicians.
    The Sixth Commandment “Thou shall not murder”, requires the right of self-defense. This right of self-defense extends to every area of government. Self: do not practice those things which damage your life; Family: defend the sanctity of marriage including stopping adultery; Church: the Bible defines her mission and her structure; State: the exercise of Jurisprudence to terrorize evil doers and reward the righteous, and to defend the nation with its borders.
    It is an act of hatred for an administration to allow entrance to those who openly intend to harm the citizens. I want the president to protect my life from those who would do me harm.
    Refugees who are truly seeking to protect their lives and represent no harm to us should be welcomed. But our leaders have the duty carefully to investigate them to be assured they are not intending harm. Sharia law is demonic and antithetical to Biblical Law. It is therefore not good according to God, Deuteronomy 30:15-20.

  9. When people whose philosophies are opposed to the Constitution and our laws are allowed to come into the US the US will no longer be able to act as a haven or refuge.

  10. P.R. Baptists denying Graham free access to preach, but want to allow potential terrorists free access to terrorize the U.S.? – God has only ONE ENEMY -Satan- who wants to destroy everything Christian. Stay alert!

  11. This is what i like so much about Franklin Graham is that he always tells it as he sees it and he is 100% right and that is why Obama removed him from doing the opening prayer at the pentagon every year for Obama the fake Christian replaced Graham with a Muslim cleric because Obama is a muslim not a Christian. Where was all the outrage when Obama constantly attacked Christians while protecting his fellow jihadists?

  12. Praise God for Graham and his stand against the liberal and gay communities. They, (the gay’s) as a minuscule minority along with the non gay liberals have managed to sanitize the very foundation on which this country was founded. They have made every effort to take God out of our country, succeeding in great part. Why do you think our country is on the downward slide (slouching to Gomorrah)? Politicians, judges and even some evangelical pastors, have acquiesced to the gay and liberal agenda. Politicians and judges need to get a spine and support Christian and Conservative values. I fear for our country!

  13. Sharia is not compatible with philosophies resistant to moslem dominance. It is essentially malignant to civil order and tolerant coexistence.

  14. I agree there is nothing in the Bible that states we should not have borders and if you know about the promise land that God gave to the Jews the would know that God specified borders of that land. It also does not say take in the whole word because they want to come. It also does not say take in an enemy to live with you and do you not know that Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed for there was not a remnant to teach people about God and change those cities into “God” cities. No where does it say to take in people who want to overthrow our system of government and implement their system of government called Sharia law. When they state they want to live under Sharia law rather than the Constitution I see that is coming to America to OVERTURN OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT and yes they have stated this fact on TV!!!!
