Franklin Graham Frankly Rebukes Buttigieg For Ignoring God
ONE NEWS NOW REPORTS:
After condemning the first openly homosexual presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg, for his attack on Vice President Mike Pence's Christian faith, Rev. Franklin Graham reminded the ultra-left Democrat that God is the One who decides what sin is - not man.
"We don't define sin - God does," the world-renowned evangelist lectured Buttigieg on Facebook.
"To set the record straight, Mr. Mayor, the issue isn't whether somebody has a problem with who you are - the issue is that we all have a problem with God because of our sin," the preacher from North Carolina told Buttigieg via social media. "And it applies to every single human being. God loves us, and the Bible says we are all sinners who need God's forgiveness - which He offers if we repent and turn from our sin and put our faith in His Son, Jesus Christ."
Graham went on to explain something Buttigieg should have known as a professing Christian.
"We don't define sin - God does in His Word, the Bible," the Christian leader continued. "Using new terms like 'Progressive Christianity' and the 'Christian Left' may sound appealing to some, but God's laws and standards do not change. He says, 'For I am the Lord, I change not.' I believe what the Bible says is truth."
Buttigieg insisted in his speech that marrying a homosexual man has made him a "better human being."
"Yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God," the LGBT activist claimed. "[It was someone or something] far above my pay grade [that made me homosexual]."
Graham argued that Buttigieg is trying to fault Pence for taking God at his word, as clearly written in the Bible.
"[Buttigieg is] attacking Vice President Mike Pence for his stand with the Word of God," the vocal street preacher insisted. "I have such a great respect for the vice president - for his leadership in our nation, for his personal integrity and for his Christian faith."
During his speech to LGBTQ activists, Buttigieg went on to share that he fought his homosexual desires for some time.
"If you had offered me a pill to make me straight, I would have swallowed it before I could get a sip of water," Buttigieg insisted.
The South Bend mayor also brought up the problematic "Equality Act," which is geared to make LGBTQ "rights" trump religious freedom guaranteed to Americans by the U.S. Constitution - under the guise of civil rights.
"He also promised he would support a federal 'Equality Act,' which - according to the bill now in Congress - would threaten constitutionally protected rights of Christians," WND noted from the speech.
