I followed a link today to www.IBelieve.com sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and was shocked to find this thinly guised signup for the BGEA and Christianity.com mailing lists:
It’s sad, Franklin Graham, that you would be a part of this.
The verse on the “declaration” is that our LIGHT would shine, not our WORDS. Indignantly declaring that we are Christian (with strong undertones of how we feel that makes us better than the ones “afraid to take a stand.”) will in no way cause the watching world to “glorify (our) Father in heaven.”
Yeah, I’m a Christian. No, I’m not going to prove it to you by signing up for your mailing list. And it’s precisely that type of underhandedness that makes “letting my light shine” more difficult.
