Rev. Billy Graham offered key message to votersPublished 12:00am Sunday, November 4, 2012
Some of us in the Tri-State may have missed the message from the Rev. Billy Graham that ran a few days ago in the Wall Street Journal and in other newspapers.
Of course I understand this was/is a paid advertisement, but if we can get past that and really understand what he is saying to Americans, I believe we could agree with his heart.
Most of us know that Rev. Graham has counseled, advised and prayed with every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower including our sitting president.
I feel an urgency to share just a few of his comments. He spoke of the legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial.
He mentioned this could very well be his last election he participates in as he is nearing his 94th birthday.
He spoke of casting our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on Biblical principles and support the nation of Israel.
He also urged us to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the Biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman.
As we go to the polls Nov. 6, let us pray that America will remain one nation under God.
