Franklin Graham Attacked for Pointing Out That Homosexuality Is Contrary to God’s Word

WATCH: Tucker Carlson explains the Buttigieg and Pence hate hoax

I’ve written about Pete Buttigieg at length. He’s a Democratic presidential candidate who’s seemingly trying to win over the evangelical vote by openly talking about his Christian faith. In reality, he’s been spending far too much time attempting to justify his personal political beliefs by distorting the Word of God and trashing anyone who calls him out. He’s been trying to have a pretend fight with Vice President Mike Pence for what feels like forever. It got so out of hand that Karen Pence felt the need to address it.

“They’ve always had a great relationship,” Karen Pence told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade. “It’s funny because I don’t think the vice president does have a problem with him, but I think it’s helping Pete to get some notoriety by saying that about the vice president.”

It’s clear Pete thinks being a gay Christian will give him an upper hand. However, it seems he and his supporters are having trouble accepting that some Christians actually take God’s Word seriously when it comes to homosexuality.

Franklin Graham is getting a ton of hate his way for daring to say that homosexuality is contrary to God’s Word.

Wow. How DARE he suggest that God’s Word reigns true! We cannot tolerate that!

I’m not here to defend a man, but I’ll happily defend the Word of God.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

Marriage is between a man and a woman. Period. God’s word is pretty inflexible on that. Heck, biology is pretty inflexible about that. And I’m sorry, but I refuse to put fussy feelings above the word of God.

There are people out there who truly struggle with homosexuality. I believe that, and I also believe that God’s greater than any spiritual struggle we are facing day-to-day. We ALL have certain strongholds. We’re not perfect, but we have to recognize God’s best for us– and that starts by truly knowing your authority in Jesus and knowing the Word of God. I think that’s a huge reason this is such an uncomfortable subject for Christians. They don’t know their authority or the Word. They’re either, “GAYS ARE HELLBOUND,” which is NOT the heart of Jesus AT ALL so STHU, or they’re all, “You do you! Jesus loves you!” That’s true, but love doesn’t mean condoning things you do that are contrary to the Word. He loves you. You come to Him as you are. That’s the beauty of Christ. It’s His goodness that draws men to Him.

We live under grace thanks to Jesus, but we cannot and should not take it for granted. Grace doesn’t cancel out God’s best. Living under grace doesn’t mean you continue to do whatever you want. You shouldn’t use it to come up with reasons to justify your lifestyle. Our first priority should be seeking Him– not twisting His Word to satisfy our selfish nature.

When religious leaders brought an adulterous woman to Jesus, he essentially called them out for hypocrisy. No one could cast a stone, because they were all sinners. Jesus was the only one who could’ve thrown a stone, and He didn’t. He extended grace toward her.

“Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

Go and sin no more. He didn’t tell her to go and continue to live that way. He didn’t scold society for refusing to celebrate her adulterous behavior as a cool new alternative lifestyle choice. He essentially corrected her. He extended grace and instructed her to stop doing wrong. Wow– so hateful! That’s how the world acts when Christians do the same. We’re not allowed to make strong statements on what’s right and wrong according to God’s Word. That’s considered “hate.”

It’s not hateful to point out that something is contrary to God’s Word, and I will never apologize for that.
