Billy Graham was the greatest evangelist of our time, and he’s going to be missed terribly.

While in his later years Graham had stopped preaching from a pulpit, he was still very active on social media.

In fact, he made one final Facebook post just 24 hours before he passed on to Glory.

It’s not uncommon for Christians to be challenged by atheists who insist that because there’s evil in the world, the benevolent God of the Bible can’t possibly be real.

Graham himself surely heard that argument more times that he could count over his long ministry.

But, he had the perfect response, which was posted to his Facebook page on Tuesday:

“If you went for a walk in the woods, but then decided to wander off the path, and found yourself surrounded by a thicket of thorns and poison ivy, who would you blame? Would you blame the person who built the path? No, of course not. Instead you’d blame yourself if you were honest, because you alone were responsible for wandering from the path.

“In a far deeper way, this is what happens when we decide to leave God out of our lives. For a time, it may seem like wandering away from Him doesn’t make any difference; it may even seem easier and freer. But eventually it catches up with us—just as wandering off that path and into the thicket caught up with you.” — Billy Graham

That’s the kind of powerful, no nonsense teaching we are so sorely going to miss from this great man of God.

400 Students Take Matters Into Own Hands After Atheists Tell Coach Not to Pray

When the atheist group Freedom from Religion Foundation sent a letter to Georgia’s East Coweta High School warning them that a tradition of coaches leading or participating in prayer with student athletes was impermissible, they probably thought they had already won the battle.

In a way, they did: The coaches didn’t lead the students in prayer. But that didn’t mean the players — or the fans — weren’t going to bow their heads before the Lord.

Instead, when East Coweta took the field for a recent Friday night game, according to WAGA-TV, they had more than just the football players bowing their heads.

“Our students have done a great job and our students took it upon themselves to organize a prayer with our students in the stands before the game. Instead of it being 100 players praying, it turned into 400 students praying,” East Coweta coach John Small told the Christian Post. That’s their right and we are going to support them in that.”

And, as you can see, things seemed to have worked.

The whole thing began when the FFRF sent a letter to Superintendent Steve Barker on Oct. 25 about Coach Small’s praying with the team.

In a statement, the FFRF said they informed the district “that it is illegal for public school athletic coaches to further personal religious beliefs by leading their teams in prayer. Coach-led prayers, FFRF points out, equate to a government advancement and endorsement of religion — a stark violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.”

“Not only must public school coaches refrain from leading prayer themselves, but also from participating in students’ prayers, FFRF informed the district. When a public school employee in that official role organizes and advocates for team prayer, religion is endorsed on the district’s behalf.”

A memorandum drawn up by the school district said that the coaches couldn’t “bow their heads” or “manifest approval” if students led the prayer themselves, but they could still be there for it.

“We are not allowed to be in the middle of it but we have a right to be there with our players. We don’t have to flee (the scene),” Small told the Christian Post.

“If my head is bowed, nobody can tell me what I am thinking. I am not leading the prayer. I am there supporting my kids. Whether I am praying or not, nobody can say I am or I ain’t.”

As you can see, the new student-led prayer certainly didn’t make for any less prayer on the football field.

Small says that it’s “really turned into a positive” for the team.

Four Words In Oath Makes Immigrant Change Her Mind About Becoming A US Citizen, Instead She’s Suing

The favorite pastime of every liberal is the idiotic lawsuit. It wastes time, money, and tries to force other people into doing what it wants. Which, of course, are the three favorite pastimes of the American Left.

It’s a match made in heaven. And now it’s a match made not just for American liberals, but for liberal foreigners with plenty of time on their hands.

Mind you, the usual target of lib suits is a government agency, or a major corporation, or some poor group of fisherman who live near an endangered species. But today’s lawsuit is far and away the worst.

Because this lawsuit is challenging the Constitution itself.

Folks, meet Olga Perrier-Bilbo, an atheist who is suing the government over the words ‘so help me God’ in the oath of allegiance to the United States.

The Independent Journal Review reports:

A French national has filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. government, claiming the citizenship oath violates her religious freedom.

Olga Perrier-Bilbo, an atheist, has lived in Massachusetts since 2000 and wants to become a U.S. citizen but claims she can’t because the oath requires her to say, “So help me God.”

You might be wondering how a foreign national has managed to sue the US government. Well, she had help – very eager liberal help.

Perrier-Bilbo’s lawyer, Michael Newdow, has a fondness for cases involving God.

The atheist attorney drew attention for a U.S. Supreme Court case when he argued the Pledge of Allegiance should be rewritten to exclude “under God.”

In 2016, Newdow filed a federal lawsuit arguing “In God We Trust” must be removed from U.S. currency.

Ah, liberal lawyers. With disabled vets needing proper medical care, free speech on campus in need of protection, and nearly every government agency in need of reform, it’s nice to know that lib suits have directed their lobbying efforts to…well, removing a phrase from a piece of paper.

Priorities tell you everything about a person.

And they tell you everything about Perrier-Bilbo. Because there’s one thing I left out in her story. You might think she would be excited to take the oath if the government allowed her to change it.

Sadly, no.

Despite being given the opportunity to use a modified oath or participate in a private citizenship ceremony, the French immigrant still filed a lawsuit last Thursday.

The lawsuit was more important than the citizenship, I guess.
