Famed evangelist Billy Graham says when he looks at what's been going on in today's society, it reminds him of a particularly wicked period in biblical history: the days of Noah.
In a piece written on his site, Graham said, "Some of us living today have come to the point where we do not know where Christianity stops and where modern society begins."
He said, "Today, we see a world saturated with sexual sins," and things that would have shocked sensible people just a few years ago are becoming familiar.
And as for people who claim Christianity, he added that, "There are thousands of people today who think they are saved, who have a false notion that they can be a Christian and live any way they like. In their manner of living, they are indistinguishable from the world."
Graham connects the wickedness of the pre-Flood era to the wickedness of the today and points out Matthew 24:37-39, where Christ says, “As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."
Graham points out that "days of Noah may be soon upon us." But how soon? Are we now in the last days?
"I do not know," he wrote. "The closing days of history may be a hundred years or a thousand years from now. But there are many indications that we are now living in the closing period of history, and we are warned from the Scriptures that we are to repent and return to Christ as that day draws nearer."
