Franklin Graham on Sin, Morale Failures, and Donald Trump

Remember Franklin Graham? The guy in charge of Samaritans Purse, featured in Donald Trumps Inauguration, and this video.

Here’s an interview where he talks about a wall needing to keep out “dangerous people” from America, that there is a business man as a president, and if Donald Trump as a sin problem.  (spoiler – Franklin Graham doesn’t say yes to that).

Interestingly, the video is called hypocrisy…

Honest question. How would an IRS audit make a company feel targeted, isn’t completing audits, something the IRS does? 

How “Gods Not Dead 2” Links With “Paw Patrol”?

Its no shock that Netflix keeps a record of what you watch. And depending on what others watch, suggests other shows you may like.

It seems that because I watched Gods Not Dead 2, I may want to watch Paw Patrol.

The other shows in that list have a very obvious God / Christian angle, which makes me wonder, is Paw Patrol a secret Christian show? Are the dogs meant to be Gods angels? Do the dogs answer to some God type figure?

Or is Netflix confused? (But I’m sure you can tell – I’ve not actually seen Paw Patrol)

Check out my thoughts, when I live tweeted my watching Gods Not Dead 2.

Trumps Spiritual Adviser, Paula White Wants “First Fruits”

According to newsweek.com, Paula White, who is part of Donald Trumps evangelical advisory committee, is asking for the first of peoples money:

Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser has suggested that people send her money in order to transform their lives, or face divine consequences.

Paula White, who heads up the president’s evangelical advisory committee, suggested making a donation to her ministries to honor the religious principle of “first fruit,” which she said is the idea that all firsts belong to God, including the first harvest and, apparently, the first month of your salary.

“Right now I want you to click on that button, and I want you to honor God with his first fruits offering,” she said in a video shared to her website, in which she encourages her followers to donate to her ministries to get blessings from God.

So I wondered what it was she actually said… It seems newsweek were watching the video that was on Paula Whites website:

Short version. Give money to my organisation. Good things will happen. Give more money, you’ll get more freebies from me.

It may be worth pointing out that a similar video was posted at the start of 2016, showing that the above is not a new way of thinking.

While I feel there are a few holes in what she says, can I suggest that if you do feel you should give something, how about giving me your local charity / local church something?

For more from Paula White, here’s a few words about how Donald Trump is under spiritual attack.

A Fresh Worship Idea?

Worship Leaders!

Are you looking for a new idea for Sunday mornings?

Are you looking for a fresh way to guide Gods people in worship?

Are you ready to Rock? for The Rock?*

Tim Hawkins has an idea… (and if you try it, I’d love to see a video of it being tried on an unsuspecting church congregation)
