    Exclamation Franklin Graham Eviscerates Trump Over Affairs

    This is pretty damning...

    Few people have lived a more public life over the past 50 years than has my father, Billy Graham. I can assure you that the Billy Graham you see in public is the same one we children have seen at home. He has spent a lifetime making sure that his public ministry is confirmed in his private behavior.
    The topic of private vs. public behavior has emerged as perhaps the central moral issue... Much of America seems to have succumbed to the notion that what a person does in private has little bearing on his public actions or job performance, even if he is the president of the United States.
    But the God of the Bible says that what one does in private does matter. ...month's long extramarital sexual behavior in the Oval Office now concerns him and the rest of the world, not just his immediate family.

    If he will lie to or mislead his wife and daughter, those with whom he is most intimate, what will prevent him from doing the same to the American public?

    Private conduct does have public consequences...King David of the Bible, one of history's great leaders, as an example as they call on us to forgive and forget the president's moral failings. Since God pardoned David's adulterous act with Bathsheba, the reasoning goes, we should similarly forgive...

    But forgiveness is not the end of David's story. Huge consequences followed immediately. The prophet Nathan confronted David with the news that while his life would be spared, the life of his child would be extinguished after just seven days on earth. Bathsheba's husband and others were killed in an attempt to cover up the illicit affair. David, who confessed his sin when confronted by Nathan (perhaps God's special prosecutor), also witnessed a bloody coup attempt by his own son, Absalom. He was never the same king.
    The private acts of any person are never done in secret. God sees and judges all sin, and while He seeks to restore the offender with love and grace, He does not necessarily remove all the consequences of our sin. As a boy I remember my mother telling me of the consequences of sin. Like a boat, whose wake can capsize other boats, sin leaves a wake. Just look at how many have already been pulled under by the wake of the president's sin:.. White House staff members, friends and supporters, public officials and an unwitting American public.
    (His) sin can be forgiven, but he must start by admitting to it and refraining from legalistic doublespeak. According to the Scripture, --he committed adultery. He didn't "mislead" his wife and us--he lied.
    Acknowledgment must be coupled with genuine remorse. A repentant spirit that says, "I'm sorry. I was wrong. I won't do it again. I ask for your forgiveness," would go a long way toward personal and national healing.
    The scandal...has forced us to examine the morality of public and private behavior with new intellectual and spiritual vigor. There needs to be no clash between personal conduct and public appearance. Throughout my life, I have seen consistency of the two in the Graham house. I pray this will also be true in the White House.
    Thanks from Friday13

    Evangelist Franklin Graham, who questioned President Obama‘s Christianity and said his agenda was “against Christ and against His teachings,” takes a completely different approach when it comes to Donald Trump.
    Graham said in an interview with the Associated Press that the whole Stormy Daniels scandal was “nobody’s business.” Sure, Trump’s lawyer may have paid hush money to the adult film actress to cover up how he was cheating on his third wife shortly after the birth of his fifth child… but relax, everyone. God put him in office for reasons.
    … I don’t have concern, in a sense, because these things happened many years ago — and there’s such bigger problems in front of us as a nation that we need to be dealing with than other things in his life a long time ago. I think some of these things — that’s for him and his wife to deal with. I think when the country went after President Clinton, the Republicans, that was a great mistake that should never have happened. And I think this thing with Stormy Daniels and so forth is nobody’s business. And we’ve got other business at hand that we need to deal with.
    Franklin Graham: Trump?s Affair with Stormy Daniels is ?Nobody?s Business? ? Friendly Atheist

    Trump gets 'Mulligans'. Clinton did not.

    Franklin could splain until Hell freezes over but it will not do any good.

    He forgot the important part.” God Sees All!” Franklyn read those words, he must have forgotten them, read those words, he seems to have forgotten what he quoted.

    On another note Franklin is not Billy, never was, never will be!

    I remember Billy,prayed with his group of Pastors one time. He was a friend of Presidents. Quit after the Nopixon fiasco, but I never heard him talk like Frankin.

    Billy was old school, whereas Franklin is openly an asshole. The purpose of religion is to separate people from their money. Billy did it his way; Franklin does it differently.
