Recently a well-known Christian pastor strongly criticized politicians who support abortion. He also highlighted the Trump administration’s pro-life advances.
In an editorial column, evangelical leader Franklin Graham noted that Christians have a biblical obligation to vote against the abortion industry’s “godless socialist agenda” in the 2020 election.
In his remarks, published in the October edition of Decision magazine, he added that Christians should defend religious freedom and support “God-fearing judges” who defend that right.
“Obedience to God’s word brings blessing,” said Graham. “Disobedience brings chastisement and ultimately eternal punishment in hell away from the majesty and presence of God,” he added.
“God’s word encompasses every sector of living, teaching, instructing, correcting, and rebuking,” he declared. “When a political party speaks about values but endorses abortion and same-sex marriage, they are completely rejecting scripture that speaks very clearly on these issues,” he said.
“The Bible says we are knit together by God in our mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13),” he said.
Graham also highlighted pro-life policy advances during the Trump administration, with the nomination of federal and pro-life Supreme Court justices, while remarking on White House abortion restrictions.
“Yet abortion is still legal in America, and it is a stench in the nostrils of God,” he noted.
Against the murder of babies
Graham, son of the late Rev. Billy Graham, has become one of the strongest pro-life voices among evangelical Protestants in the United States.
The pastor has always spoken out against abortion and, in January, asked that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, be excommunicated after he enacted a bill that legalized abortions until birth.
“This law allows for the murder of unborn children up until the day of their birth,” Graham denounced in his Twitter account.
“I call on my friend @CardinalDolan [New York Archbishop Timothy Michael Dolan’s Twitter account] to take a moral stand,” he continued. “It’s about standing for good over evil,” he concluded.
