Franklin Graham adamantly said that the 2016 presidential election was the most important of our lifetime. Now he is saying that this upcoming November midterm election is the most important.
Why? Because the laws and lawmakers that determine the moral foundation of our nation are at stake. "For several decades, the highest court in the land has grown decidedly liberal. Worse, the court has rendered ruling after ruling that rejected the Biblical foundation for our laws, allowing hostility toward Christians to grow," Graham writes in the most recent Decision Magazine.
Graham warns that the Left will do whatever possible--down to the dirtiest scheme--to prevent conservatives from getting elected. "The spectacle surrounding the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is just a foreshadowing of what we can expect if progressive-liberal socialists rule our country. And believe me, they are doing whatever they can—no matter how devious and disgusting—to see their own godless agenda forced upon us," says Graham.
The fiery preacher explains that the Kavanaugh controversy wasn't at all about his former possible actions. "The entire rationale behind the controversy in these hearings, seen around the world, wasn’t about what Judge Kavanaugh did or didn’t do as a teenager. It was really about the ideological advance of progressive socialists who were intent on stopping a judicial conservative from being appointed to the Supreme Court," shares Graham.
Graham gives examples of how the United States Supreme Court has had the power to massively shape our culture for the worse: "Meanwhile, cleverly invented laws favoring the homosexual community have been pervasively promoted and upheld by the judicial system, even to the extent that in the 2015 Supreme Court case of Obergefell v. Hodges, marriage itself is no longer defined as between one man and one woman. Our highest court has rejected God’s standards. The Bible shows us how, time after time, this means trouble."
While Kavanaugh's appointment was successful, Graham warns that the battle is not yet over: "Kavanaugh’s eventual confirmation by the Senate on a 50-48 vote will certainly be advantageous in a host of key upcoming decisions coming before the Supreme Court. But make no mistake, the progressive left is not giving up," he writes.
"Already, they are looking for ways to impeach Justice Kavanaugh," explains Graham. "If liberal progressives gain control of the House and/or the Senate, then new conservative justices will have little if any chance of being confirmed. And remember, there is the distinct possibility that other justices will retire over the next few years."
As Graham concludes his passionate appeal to Christians, he paints a bigger picture of what is really going on behind the scenes. "There is a battle raging between good and evil, between right and wrong, between light and darkness. It’s not new, but it certainly has intensified in a very public way. The battle is raging in the halls of Congress, on the Senate floor, in the Supreme Court and on the media airwaves. It is raging in our city councils and school boards across America," says Graham.
"The Bible says, 'Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter' (Isaiah 5:20). The further our nation moves away from God, the quicker our descent into greater moral depravity and chaos. I fear for what is in store for our children and grandchildren," says Graham, sharing his heart.
So Graham is urging each of us to vote: "That is why I am encouraging everyone to go out on Nov. 6 and vote for the candidate who is most closely aligned with Biblical values. And remember to study the positions of candidates in your local and state races as well as in the national elections. More than 6,600 state positions are being contested, including 36 governorships. Vote for those who are pro-life and who support the religious liberties that have undergirded our nation for centuries."
"Above all, pray that God will have mercy on our nation and that we will once again turn back to the God of our father," concludes Graham in his powerful appeal.
