Reverend Graham. Help Christianity and Our Nation and Rebuke Trump.

Dear Rev. Graham

I am writing this letter in hopes that newspapers will publish it and you will read it and it will change your heart and mind. I am also posting this on social media hoping it will reach you and change your heart.

You have designated this Sunday June 2nd as a national day for prayer for our president to help protect him from his enemies. You said the only hope for him and this nation is God. I believe that as well.

But I believe that you have compromised the faith. I believe that by siding with Trump you are doing more harm to the faith than help. Trump is everything that Scripture warns us about . This is from 2 Timothy 3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. NIV

Trump has shown time and again that he is a mocker, a slanderer, a man with no humility and no decency, yet you give him religious cover. Yes Trump is supporting policies that may protect Christianity. But what is the point of protecting the church if we have to corrupt it in order to do it. Yoking ourselves with Trump is like a family hiring a pedophile bouncer to protect their children. Yes he will protect you from enemies without but all the while corrupting your house.

I don’t believe that you are a bad man, I think that fear and hatred has skewed and corrupted your faith. You are so afraid of Christians losing control that you have unwillingly sold your soul for political power. God has given you so many gifts. You could be using them to spread the Gospel. To show an unbelieving country that God is good. That we have a savior who died for us but also lived to show us how to truly be human.

Unfortunately Trump is the the complete opposite of Jesus. He is against all of the virtues that Jesus taught and many people including you are treating him like he is God’s anointed. Jesus said that we can not serve two masters and his whole live has been about serving himself and money.

Elijah did not ask for the Israelites to pray for Queen Jezebel. He spoke out against her corruption. Isaiah did not stand up for the status quo. He spoke up against it and his words in Isaiah 1 could describe America today. And John the Baptist spoke out against the corrupt and sexual degenerate King Herod Antipas. He did not give him religious succor.

So Reverend Graham. Be a man of God. Be like your father. Grid up your loins and unyoke yourself from this man who shows none of the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. NIV

Yes this will be difficult. Yes some people will hate you. Those who drank the Trump flavor-aid will call you names, will attack you. Donations may dry up. But doing this with Jesus and His word backing you up will not only help you, it will help this nation and maybe will even help bring non believers to Christ.

The ball is in your court. You could rise up to this occasion and help lead a third great awakening or you could continue to do what you are doing. Being a false prophet who tarnishes the name of Jesus Christ in the eyes of the non believers.

You can do this. I believe in you but more than that I believe in a God of truth and a God of justice. The only question is do you?

This Christmas Let’s Give to Franklin Graham With One Condition

The Christmas season is the season for giving. Numerous charities that you have donated in the past send letters asking you to donate again. There are many worthy organizations out there. For example I donated to the Fairhaven School. A school in Alexandria Egypt that provides an education to students with development disabilities that my church has ties with.

So I know money is limited. But what I am asking you is to donate to a cause that is very near to my heart. As I write in my blogs, I do consider the religious right and their deal with Trump akin to a pact with the devil. Trump is everything that Jesus Christ is not and supporting him is blaspheming the name of God in the eyes of non believers.

I don’t believe that all the religious right are lost permanently. I believe some have just lost their way and gently need to be brought back to the light. Franklin Graham couldn’t be all lost, he does great work with Samaritans’ Purse. I believe that fear and anger have lead him astray and I believe that we can help bring him back into the path of Righteousness. Imagine if Franklin Graham spoke up against or withdrew his support from Donald Trump. The man who Time and Newsmax named the most influential evangelical leader in world. If he would speak out it would be a miracle that would go a long way.

That is why we have to be cunning as serpents and as innocent as doves. I suggest that we donate money to the Billy Graham Foundation on condition that their leader rebuke or withdrawal their support for Trump. And if he does not do so, we will demand a full return of our donation.

I tried this once before in June of 2017, I wrote two checks. One for $50 and one for $19.26. These numbers mean a lot to me. The first one was for $50 because of Galatians 5. The second one was $19.26 because of verses 19-26.

https://2timothytrump.blog/2017/07/11/franklin-graham-take-this-69-26-and-start-a-third-great-awakening/

The Billy Graham Foundation cashed the check and Graham continued to support Trump so I asked and got my money back. Imagine if they received 100 letters like that. Letters with checks inclosed with different amounts and a letter urging him or others to rebuke or withdrawal support from Trump using scripture. In my wildest dreams it would be like the court scene in Miracle on 34th Street. Bags of letters coming to The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association at 1 Billy Graham Parkway in Charlotte, NC 28201 urging him to do so to do so.

I am a true evangelical Christian. I believe that God works in the world and He works through the Holy Spirit and we as followers of Him must do what we must to help His kingdom.

These are just a few possible amounts

1. You could write a check for $60 and one for $15.19 and write using Proverbs 6 about what God hates and how Trump’s behavior and actions go against everything that God Loves

2. A check for $23 and one for $19 for 2 Timothy 3 1-9 another scripture that talks about false religion

3. A check for $117.19 for Jeremiah 1 17-19 and urge Franklin Graham to gird up his loins and do right by God.

There are many scriptures that speak against wickedness and for justice so we can be creative here.

The best that could happen is that these checks and letters help change the hearts and minds of religious right leaders and their flock, the worst that could happen is you call for a refund and in the month of January their coffers have a huge deficit in them.

Again send your letters and checks to

The Billy Graham Foundation

Join my Facebook group Spiritual Warriors in Trump’s America and let me know what you donated and how.

Operation Today is the Day: Let’s Help Bring Rev. Franklin Graham Back to the Light.

Atheists believe that he is a perfect example of hypocritical Christianity. Many Christians I know believe that he is a lost soul who sold out his principals for politics, that he is too far gone to be saved.

I do not agree. I do believe that he has lost his way. He has let loss of Christianity’s political power, anger at the rising tide of secularism, and fear cloud his judgement. He has been seduced by a wicked man and wicked politics. He has gotten in bed with a man who represents everything that Christ stood against. Instead of celebrating humility, he honors a man who symbolizes pride.

He speaks up about a public school coach who was barred from praying before a game yet he is silent about the fact that our politicians are corrupt and are about to pass a tax bill that rewards the wealthy and hurts the poor. One that politicians like Lindsey Graham (no relation) admitted that if he didn’t pass, his donors would be angry with him. Rev. Graham should speak out for the former, the coach, but not forget about the latter.

We live in a nation where our rulers are rebels and thieves always chasing after gifts and looking after bribes and Franklin Graham doesn’t say a thing. He supported Trump because he hated Hillary Clinton and her policies on abortion among other things. But he traded a Jezebel for a Manasseh. He knows what type of man that Trump is yet he continues to support him after all of his tweets. The Billy Bush Access Hollywood Tape should have been a red line. After that Rev. Graham and his support for Trump basically said that Christianity stands for nothing.

But it is not to late. God gave him great gifts. He has just gone astray into apostasy. I have been trying to bring him back into the light for more than a year.

I made videos using his father’s book “Peace With God” as a guide 10 Rules For Franklin Graham.

I wrote e-mails.I called him. I tried to speak to him when he came to my state capital, Madison. All to no avail.

I even donated money to him asking him to speak up against Trump.https://2timothytrump.blog/2017/07/11/franklin-graham-take-this-69-26-and-start-a-third-great-awakening/

But I am just one man. I am nobody. One man is a crank, but hundreds of people is a movement, I ask you to join me. To call his office.

1-877-247-2426

Or write him at Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

1 Billy Graham Parkway

Charlotte, NC 28201

Maybe even donate money like I did, urging him to gird up his loins and stand up for Christ against Trump’s behavior and policies and if he doesn’t, demand a refund.

But, we do this out of love. Yes we will shame him, show him scripture and where he is wrong but also scripture to show him how he could actually help the Kingdom of God.

No, I don’t believe he is lost for good, all he needs is a little push. And with the Holy Spirit and hundreds of Christians praying and reaching out to him, I believe that He can be brought back into the light.

I have created a Facebook group to help usher this in. Operation Today Is the Day: Let’s Save Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham:Charles Finney or Ebenezer Warren?

Slavery was the moral issue of the 19th century. And the abolition movement was made up of northern Christians and ex patriot southern Christians. This is what the secular media doesn’t talk about much. But William Lloyd Garrison of the Liberator, Charles Finney, William Wilberforce of England all were evangelical Christians.

This is why I find it sickening that Graham defended a statue dedicated to Robert E. Lee put up during the 2nd period where the klan was ascendent. My forefathers spoke out against slavery. I wonder what Graham’s did?

There were many ministers who bowed down for the evil that was slavery. They used the curse of Ham to say that ” why make equal what God has made unequal” disregarding  Galatians 18 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

One notorious Whore for slavery and White Supremecy was a Southern Baptist minister from Macon Georgia named Ebenezer Warren. These are his own words. From his own pulpit.

…Slavery forms a vital element of the Divine Revelation to man. Its institution, regulation, and perpetuity, constitute a part of many of the books of the Bible …. The public mind needs enlightening from the sacred teachings of inspiration on this subject …. We of the South have been passive, hoping the storm would subside …. Our passiveness has been our sin. We have not come to the vindication of God and of truth, as duty demanded …. it is necessary for ministers of the gospel … to teach slavery from the pulpit, as it was taught by the holy men of old, who spake as moved by the holy Spirit …. Both Christianity and Slavery are from heaven; both are blessings to humanity; both are to be perpetuated to the end of time …. Because Slavery is right; and because the condition of the slaves affords them all those privileges which would prove substantial blessings to them; and, too, because their Maker has decreed their bondage, and has given them, as a race, capacities and aspirations suited alone to this condition of life ….

No Christian now except for those on the far alt-right neo-confederate side would agree with these words. But thousands did at the time. He could have been Brave and stood up and spoke out against it. And now many Southern Baptists  are saying that war was not about slavery even though their own church, their own sinful church said this in a May 1863 Southern Baptist Convention on slavery.

… the war which has been forced upon us by our assailants, is grounded in opposition to an institution which is sustained by the sanctions of religion. They [Northerners] assume that slavery is a sin and therefore ought to be abolished. We contend that it is a Scriptural institution. The very nature of the contest takes the point in dispute out of the category of politics, and delegates it to the sphere of Christianity. We are really contending for the precepts of religion, against the devices of the wisdom of this world, and it is, therefore, not only the policy, but the duty of religious bodies to define their position in this great contest. The [SBC] convention has done well in giving unambiguous utterance to its sentiments on this subject.

Thankfully the Southern Baptist Convention repented of this sin but looking at the confederate flags at Charlottesville and the defending of the statues. I don’t think they got the memo.

Compare this to the true Bride of Christ during this time, Charles Finney, the man who started the 2nd great awakening and Franklin Graham if he would gird up his loins and follows suit might trigger the 3rd.

The startling fact is but too apparent that our Union is virtually a slaveholding state, and that Congress have seriously undertaken to make the entire domain of our country a slaveholding land. They enact their Fugitive Slave Bill into so-called law, and then send their commissioned agents into the free states, upon free soil, to compel free men, whose souls abhor slavery, to become slave-catchers, and to deliver up unto their masters or claimants, the servant that has escaped–in the very face of God’s own command to the contrary, not to say also in the very face of every dictate of humanity. When the Northern states set their own slaves free, they had no thought of ever being dragged thus into the support of slavery. They expected, and were authorized to expect that the example of emancipation would be followed by the Southern states. But instead of this, what do we see? Laws enacted by Congress which people all the free states with commissioners authorized to seize men as slaves–which deny them a jury trial and the right of habeas corpus–which leave them only the miserable mockery of the forms of trial, and which then, under heavy pains and penalties, compel us to sustain all this iniquity, and aid in dragging the arrested victim into hopeless bondage.

So in this series devoted to Franklin Graham. Where I ask is he part of the Bride of Christ or is he simply like Ebenezer Warren either a coward who is playing and afraid of his base, or a man who actually agrees in supporting a man who is the symbol of pride. Does he actually agree with this administrations racist immigration policy that will doom thousands of innocent refugees both Christian and Muslim to war torn lives?

I don’t know. But I do know this is the moment of Decision. Will He make the right one and lead a revival to rival the 2nd great awakening  or just end up in the dustbin of history filled with all the other false prophets who went before him.?

Franklin Graham: This is the month of Decision. And readers help him make the right one.

I do not hate Reverend Franklin Graham. I do not hold him in disdain. I love him. I don’t doubt that he considers himself a Christian. I pray that he is. But he is lost. He has fallen into apostasy, a loveless Christianity that is hollow and that had no basis in our Lord’s teachings. He has succumbed to fear, hated anger, self righteuousness and has accepted the wickedness of the Trump administration.

Nor do I hate Trump. I consider our president my political and spiritual enemy. I believe that he represents everything that our savior spoke out against. Read Matthew 5-7 and that he is symbolic of the apostasy of American Christianity, read 2 Timothy 3. But I am commanded to love my enemies, no matter how hard. And with Donald Trump it has been very hard. God willing if Franklin Graham can be brought back to Jesus, maybe Trump can as well.

I have called the Billy Graham Evangelical association many times, I have made blogs, I have made YouTube videos based on his father’s book Peace With God. I wrote letters to about thirty newspapers. This past month I donated $69.26 to the Billy Graham Evangelical Foundation on condition that Graham speaks out against the behavior and policies of our president. He didn’t. He doubled down in a tweet about how he supports Jared Kushner and Trump. Knowing very well that if it was the Clintons accused, he would attack. So I called and asked for a full refund. I haven’t received it yet.

But I am only one man. I can be considered a crank. I know some of my heroes of the Bible Jeremiah and Isaiah were only one man but Christianity works best in community and in mass. One person is a crank, hundreds is a movement.

So I am asking fellow evangelical, mainline, and progressive Christians to join me in this crusade of rescuing Franklin Graham and his followers from the jaws of fear and hate. This may be where Satan wants them. But this is not where God wants them.

Do what I did, write checks to the Billy Graham Evangelical association along with letters using scripture showing him and his workers why supporting Trump is the unbiblical thing to do. These are just three examples.

#1 you could write a check for $60 and one for $16.19 and in your letter discuss Proverbs 6

16 There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

#2 you could write one check for $100 and another one for $21.23 and discuss Isaiah 1

21 See how the faithful city
has become a prostitute!
She once was full of justice;
righteousness used to dwell in her—
but now murderers!
22 Your silver has become dross,
your choice wine is diluted with water.
23 Your rulers are rebels,
partners with thieves;
they all love bribes
and chase after gifts.
They do not defend the cause of the fatherless;
the widow’s case does not come before them.

#3 you could write one check for $20, one for $30, and a third for $1.05. And discuss

2 Timothy 3

3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

There are so many scriptures that condemn Trump that hundreds of  people could do this and you wouldn’t have the same amount.

But in your letter write that if Franklin Graham does not speak out against this administration than he should rip up the checks. And if his association does cash them and he continues to give religious aid and comfort to Trump demand a full refund.

We can do this. Let’s save Graham from himself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rev. Franklin Graham be the prophetic voice God intends you to be: Jeremiah 1:17-19

I am no one. I am just a Born again Christian who has had my faith tested like never before and  was called to do this. I have called his office and sent e-mails, and wrote blogs but God is inspiring me to write once  more.

Everything I write does not only apply to Rev. Graham, the most powerful evangelical leader in the nation. It applies to every tv pundit, pastor, teacher, every Christian of every stripe who finds this.

Dear Brother Graham,

I was inspired to write this after reading about a movie that your charity Samaritan’s Purse is putting out. “Facing Darkness” is a movie about brave Christian missionaries fighting Ebola in Africa. I don’t think it will come to theaters in Madison WI, the birthplace of the Freedom From Religion Foundation but I will try to see if I can catch it on demand. This lent I am planning on watching movies about brave men from the Bible as well as brave Christians who fought injustice and tyranny. The first one being Jeremiah with Patrick Dempsey. This is one of the best Biblical films I have seen that didn’t chronicle Jesus.

I am writing because of Jeremiah. He was a prophet. He was my favorite Old Testament Prophet. He spoke against crooked kings and false prophets. He faced danger, he was mocked, he was thrown down into a well. But he always spoke God’s truth.

You talk about secularism and the dangers of it. You are speaking out against Disney and Beauty and the Beast. But this is not the fight you should be fighting. It would be like Jeremiah speaking out against a blasphemous puppet show while ignoring the wickedness that was going around and was going to bring ruin to the Kingdom of Judah.

The secular media is having a field day with your feud with Disney. They won’t mention your movie. They are mocking you. But not because you are fighting for Christ but because you are attacking a movie that has one ambiguous scene in it while supporting a man who bragged about committing adultery and chasing after a married woman. You can say that he repented but  his words were

“We are losing our jobs, we are less safe than we were eight years ago and Washington is totally broken. Hillary Clinton and her kind have run our country into the ground. I’ve said some foolish things, but there’s a big difference between the words and actions of other people. Bill Clinton has actually abused women, and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday.”

His words were foolish but he was talking about actions. Things that he did. He didn’t apologize for chasing after a married woman. He apologized for talking about it. And then hypocritically attacking the Clintons.

Now I think the Clintons are one of the most corrupt political families in American history But you made a deal with a devil to stop them. He has lied about crowd size. He has lied about voter fraud. He may be lying about the Russians. His immigration policy is breaking up families and is hurting people. And yes Mercy to foreigners is  a Bible issue.

It is time to be a man. It is time to gird up your loins and admit your mistake and speak out against our “King Ahab”. I know that I am mixing Biblical prophets. King Ahab was long dead before Jeremiah came along.

But I use that king because in a way, you are my white whale, Rev. Graham. You are a man with such gifts. You are a man who if you decided could use the gifts that both your Heavenly Father and earthly father gave you could help bring about a third great awakening.

I have e-mailed. I have called. I even was going to stand up while you spoke in my Capital but one of your chaplain’s convinced me not to and I regret that to this day.

You want to fight secularism. You want to fight the attack on Christianity. Don’t attack Disney. Don’t attack the “pagan” world. Attack their weapon. Attack the cancer that has infected the American Church. If you speak up against Trump using the Holy Word of God. The secular media will have to pay attention. This fight would help spread the Gospel more than any Festival of Hope.

And yes if you do this, Trump will hate you. He will attack you. He may even use his government powers to attack you. You will lose friends and family. Donations will dry up. But you will be a man of God. And remember what our Lord Jesus said  in Luke 6

Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.

They will treat you like Jeremiah, they will treat you like Jesus. But He will be with you. As will I. I know that you love God. You just let politics lead you astray. Come back and be the prophetic voice that you know God put you on earth to be. The time has come to gird up your loins and become him.

Jeremiah 1

17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them.

18 For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.

19 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee.

And to any brother or sister of Christ who has read this. Gird them up as well. Blow the atheists’ minds. Be a prophetic voice in your hometown.

God Bless you

your brother in Christ
