Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of Rev. Billy Graham, just started his Decision America 2016 effort this week to promote the worldwide charity Samaritan’s Purse.
He’s calling up on Christians who – if God advices- to run for political office! Only then, will Christians be in a position of power to fight back against President Barack Obama and the radical secularist agenda!
This is a message that every Christian in America should hear…
“I believe God honors those in high places who honor Him,” he said, to the crowd of hundreds gathered at the steps of the Capitol Building in Tallahassee. “Our job as Christians is to make the impact of Christ felt on every aspect of life – religious, social, economic, political.
He then spoke of the “trash” his own local school board in North Carolina has given to students to read, and then called on those with the minds and hearts to serve to seek out public office.
“We need Christian men and women running for school boards,” Franklin said. “Can you imagine if the school boards in America, [if the] majority were evangelical Christians, the impact this would have for years to come?”
Franklin scoffed the notion of Christians staying separate from politics, saying “the enemy says that” and calling for more to get in the political game. But first and foremost, he advised prayer.
“I encourage you … to go back home and form prayer groups,” he said. “People coming together who believe in the Lord Jesus Chris who are concerned about the community and who are willing to pray. … then look for people in your community … you think who would be willing to run for office, then go out and campaign in the community and work to get them elected.”
Run for office, or help conservative Christian leaders with their elections. That is the key to defending the American dream and promoting religious liberty. Christians have to engage the culture… and this is the best way to do it.
