So Franklin Graham is the Anti-Christ: Or At Leat A False Prophet?

This relates to Tim Funk‘s article this morning in the Charlotte Observer, “Franklin Graham urges boycott of gay-friendly companies, pulls bank accounts out of Wells Fargo.”

Let’s use words Franklin can understand – Matthew 7:1 says, “Judge not or you will be judged also.”   I can understand if Graham doesn’t remember this passage, I don’t think he pays that much attention to the Bible anyway.  He’s more into apologetics that suits his own purposes.

Or maybe it’s fourteen verses down that Graham wants to forget: Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.

It’s no accident that the writer of Matthew put these two verses in the same chapter – he’s telling a story of what happens when we listen (and pay attention) to judgmental people: they become false prophets.  And, Franklin Graham is certainly a false prophet.

Christian evangelicals have become experts on pointing out what they consider sin – the successful ones are on TV and living in multimillion dollar homes.  Membership has its privileges when you’re pleading to the masses for money.

This is America – Franklin Graham can put the money people give him in any bank he wants.  But, I have a Wells Fargo account and I’m just fine with their same sex advertising.

But, if the Bible is right and only God gets to judge people – Franklin Graham might be in for one Hell of a shit storm.

    you know nothing of the word, nor the meaning of the scripture on judgement. for we are told to judge often in the bible, just not people. we are told to judge between rightousness and sin. so please, do not fall back on something like this. because if trye, then no one could speak on anything. correct?
    even you here.
    that would be absurd now wouldnt it.
    we are all seeking truth.
    and that is what mr. graham is saying.
    and he bases truth on God’s word.
    You on the other hand are mishandling God ‘s word because you are not in truth on this scripture.
    pray about this and ask God to give you understanding on it .
    then you will be able to come to the truth here.

    if you do not believe in God, Jesus, you have no hope of ever coming to the acknowledging of the truth, as God so desires for each and everynone of us.
