Rev. Franklin Graham, son of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, said that "true followers" of Jesus "cannot endorse same-sex marriage".
(Worthy News) - The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has decided to move a May 2017 summit on Christian persecution from Moscow to Washington, D.C., following Russia’s passage of a controversial law curtailing evangelism.
The World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians is slated to unfold from May 10-13, 2017, and will include hundreds of evangelical leaders from across the globe — attendees who will represent around 100 countries, according to BGEA.
The summit will bring attention to Christian persecution to aid ministries that support those who face harassment and abuse due to their faith. In addition to evangelical leaders, the event will also prominently feature around 150 persecuted Christians, many of whom will openly share their personal stories. [ Source ]
