    I don't think it was the president's finest moment," he said.
    But Graham said he doesn't expect the tumult at the Capitol to deter evangelical Christians from supporting Trump.

    "I don’t think he had any understanding in that moment of what was going to take place," he said. "None of us did."

    Graham added, "He regrets it."


    Franklin Graham is still in denial...and of course, Donald Trump does not regret anything...

    I am not surprised that either continued to support Trump. Remember, James Dobson called Trump a baby Christian.
    A stain on evangelical Christianity.

    If he's in denial its only about Trumps star no longer being in ascendance. For whatever reason Franklin wants to be close to republican political power and is willing to compromise a great deal to stay there. That became glaringly apparent to me when all references to Mormonism being a cult were stricken from his organizations web presence when Romney won the nomination.

    At least we know where right-wing Evangelical Christians stand on issues which are more important to them than the Gospel of Christ.

    What more can the Evangelical faith lose? It's already lost its integrity and the respect it once had in the eyes of the public before Trump came along 5 years ago and hijacked the Republican Party.

    That's because he was God appointed. I guess none of you believe that God is in control and those that have Gone after Trump are in defiance of God.

    That is the correct message for all Christians, despite the fact that some Evangelicals want to hold it hostage to a right-wing political agenda.

    If it's God will that Trump hold office, it can be equally God's will to have him booted out.

    Just like they said god told them trump was going to get another term. Lol. It's not god who they are speaking for . That's clear. They partake in blasphemy . God doesn't miss . God is never wrong. If "god tells" you something and it doesn't come true it's not from god .it's blasphemy.
    Anyone who lies is a liar. Anyone who speaks false prophectic words is a false prophet.

    They are full in idolatry and mainstream church isn't the the church of god. The term " Celebrity evangelist " is funny . .

    2 Corinthians 11 : 13-15
    For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.


    Deuteronomy 18:20-22

    But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.

    By this logic, Saddam Hussein was appointed by God, and the US was wrong to try to remove him. It would also mean that President-Elect Biden has been appointed by God, and any Christian trying to "go after" him "are in defiance of God." Though it seems strange how, with many of these Christians, they won't claim that about Biden (like they didn't with Obama), only Trump.

    They're reading the special GOP edition of the Bible that says only conservative rulers are ordained by God.
