Franklin Graham Pontifications on Who's a Christian
Sitting at home Friday morning, drinking coffee I was listing to Morning Joe. Franklin Graham was being interviewed on his opinions about what candidates for President are Christians are who are not. I was appalled to hear him say, "Well--I'm just not sure if President Obama is a Christian or not..." He was confident, though that Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were in the fold. About Romney--being a Mormon--like Obama he did not make the cut. Where do people get off deciding who's in and who's out of the Kingdom? Remember the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares. Jesus said leave them alone and on Judgment Day God will decide. Zachary Bailes, MDiv. student at Wake Forest Divinity School has written a splendid article on Mr. Graham and his religious pontifications in ABP News. His article is entitled: "A Letter to Franklin Graham". I recommend the article--it's fine.
