But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8
Has anyone seen Franklin Grahams’ latest speech? Last week, he was featured at the “Watchmen on the Wall Conference” held by the Family Research Counsel. Here is a short clip from the conference…

News stories and blog posts have appeared all over the Internet, pronouncing Grahams’ views on homosexuality as “detestable.” A man stands on God’s word, tells the truth and is hit by yet another firestorm.
Though the clip above shows only Graham’s mention of homosexuality and that, despite society’s attitude toward it, we are to be willing to stand on God’s Word and share the truth. In the rest of his talk, he goes on to say that being a coward is at the top of God’s list of those who will not enter the Kingdom. Read the scripture above, But the Fearful… shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone. Another way “fearful” is translated is “cowardly.” Those words were straight from the mouth of Jesus Christ, Himself.
This is not something to take lightly.
I, for one, stand with Franklin Graham and appreciate a man that openly speaks the truth. We still have some voices crying out in the wilderness, even though (I believe) we are going into the Laodicean Church age.
Like he mentions, they can’t get mad at him, God’s the One that made the rules… We are just messengers of The Truth.
Where do you stand? Are we prepared to give an account, before God, for what we say… or don’t say?
Just something to think about!
Until next time…
