Grant Wicker of Duke Divinity School gave an interview with the Religious News Service recently. The scholar who wrote a book about Billy Graham discusses how Graham was burned by politics and how he would be appalled at what Franklin Graham is doing in making the gospel political.
“There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle.”
Alexis du Tocqueville
Test me, Lord, and try me,
examine my heart and my mind;
3 for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love
and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness.
Psalm 26: 2-3 NIV
