We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.
According to World Net Daily, (WND), Franklin Graham, the chief of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) as well as the Samaritan’s Purse aid ministry, has recently won a fight brought against him by LGBT activists. As a result, he will now be able to present the Gospel message in Sheffield, England, in May next year. This victory has come after a nearly two-year battle against forces who wanted to shut down his message entirely. According to a report in the BBC, Graham was accused of having “homophobic” views when he announced plans for a series of events in England, during which he was to appear in Sheffield Arena last June.
The announcement follows the resolution of a legal dispute over Franklyn Graham’s appearance, according to the Sheffield city council. After he originally was scheduled to visit, “community groups” involving the pro-LGBT agenda, campaigned against him and signed a letter of protest to council officials. The council, and the operator of its local arena, then backed out of their agreement, prompting the BGEA to open a legal dispute. But now an official for the city has said that, “The parties are content that the dispute has been resolved and are content with the confidential terms agreed.”Bottom of Form He continued, “As part of that settlement, BGEA are entitled to hold their event in the Sheffield Arena and this event has been scheduled for May, 2022.”
The BGEA’s arguments against the city’s cancellation of its agreement pointed out that BGEA filed claims against parties in Sheffield that it believed were responsible for cancelling its legally binding contracts. It explained that there was no evidence that any event involving Graham had ever caused a danger to public safety or incited public disorder. “There is no question that was done under pressure from those with opposing views,” BGEA said.
The Christian Institute said that the case was one of five separate legal actions pursued by the BGEA after Sheffield and other venues in Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham and Liverpool arbitrarily canceled the bookings to which they had agreed for Graham’s planned U.K. tour.
We celebrate this victory for the BGEA. We are in the last days, and the devil is launching an all-out offensive. But we thank God for those believers who will not sit idly by and allow him to have his way. Rather, they are prepared to resist him. That is exactly what Evangelist Graham has done. Let us follow his example and remember to pray for him and his association that God would continue to use them for His glory and honor.
