  1. I really do not understand how one can be the most paid Employee of an organization such as Samaritan’s Purse while the goal is to benefit the less privileged! The net worth of 12 million and making millions every year! Personally, it seems one is possibly taking advantage of people who are underprivileged as in the Tennessee tornado situation, to gain more profit for oneself or an evangelistic association! When one is pleading for help for many others who are legitimately in need for sure, while they themselves are sitting on millions of dollars! This doesn’t make sense! If the concern is really there, where is the true sacrifice! As I understand sacrifice, it isn’t one until you have given something that costs you something! When someone is living in luxury and pleads with those who are often barely making ends meet to give of there meager, there may be reason to question the motive! It does not set a godly example When one is continuously getting richer by preying on the misfortune of others without making any real sacrifices of their own! I am a firm believer in giving, but true giving is making real sacrifices! As of 2014, 622 million per year?? “ The Love of money is the root of all evil”! It is very sad that people go through some very difficult times and FOR SURE there is GOOD WORK being done to help the needy; but HOW can one become so RICH while THOSE others supposedly concerned for, are lacking bare necessities; IF that is your real concern? There is something truly disturbing here! Call it what you like; there are people suffering from lack of food, clothing and shelter while we enjoy the pleasures of life and we CALL IT SACRIFICE ! God desires the sacrifice of our hearts, not of our hands!! David, a man after God’s own heart said “ I will not offer anything that costs me nothing”! Understand,I have no problem with people enjoying plenty, I have plenty myself; my issue is when YOU profit YOURSELF off the misfortunes of others by pleading for public help, all the while you are enjoying the luxuries of life! It appears to me that this is just a modern day example of God’s house being used as a den of thieves! Modern day evangelists are filling their pockets at the expense of the less fortunate and playing on others’ sympathy of disastrous circumstances! Jesus told the rich young ruler “ Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. And when he heard this, he went away sorrowful: for he was very rich. Luke 18:22-23 Jesus also tells me that “ it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God”. We as a society are using religion to promote our own agenda in the name of Jesus Christ; YET our barns are filled to running over and in need to BUILD BIGGER barns! We are sending a wrong message to many lost souls because of our own self-indulgence of the material world and monetary gain! “ Clouds without rain”! I am afraid the “ love of money” is overshadowing the “ love of the soul”! Pray that we are not guilty of deceiving others by a false profession, but worse, deceiving ourselves for the love of money!

    • Ms. Shepgerd–do you have any personal knowledge or proof to back up your accusations of wrong doing or miss use of any funds or monies earned from either The Billy Graham Evangelistic Assoc. or Samaritan’s Purse–by Rev. Franklin Graham? Just because someone’s “net worth” is in the millions or billions of even thousands of dollars–doesn’t mean–that person is misusing or defrauding–anyone!! You should really be ashamed of yourself!! Rev. Graham and his Father Rev. Billy Graham–have spent and Franklin now spends many hours traveling to preach the Gospel to see people saved and restored and also to see people helped and Blessed–after a natural disaster–completely wipes peoples lives and property away–through the Ministry of Samaritan’s Purse!! Blessings to you!!

    • Do you know how much $12 million dollars is? In today’s world, that is not much for someone who has worked the hours and hours and years and years this man has. Apparently, you are not familiar with Samaritan’s Purse. I support this organiztion and will continue to do so. To be so judgmental is amazing as a Christian. Every storm, every natural disaster, even today with COVID-19, Samaritan’s Purse disptaches 18-wheelers — plural — numerous trucks to deliver goods to people. They have set up a 68-bed hospital in New York Central Park with volunteers to help those with the coronavirus. Do you see Nancy Pelosi — who is worth of $250 million dollars as a Congressman — putting out money for anything for these people. No! Clintons? No! Obama? No. They pretend to be a non-profit and steal from it. Do your research, please.

    • The Bible also commands us not to judge. The man is blessed by God and will answer to God only. Not you or any other person. When you can hover above water, as Christ, then you can toss stones at a Man of God.

    • You stated as of 2014, $622 million a year. His salary as a CEO was $622 thousand a year, not million. His books, his speaking engagements, wealth acquired from inheritance, many different things could contribute to his total net worth. His organization does a lot to help poverty and people world wide.

  2. My girlfriend just sent me an article by Franklin Graham. I replied back that I think he is a fraud, period. I have disagreed with many things he has said in previous years. In the email he says he puts his trust in God not in money, politics or Washington. What a fraud! I feel so much better after seeing your message.
    Sincerely,
    Marie

    • Ms. Valoris–what proof do you have that Mr. Franklin Graham is a fraud? Is your opinion based on the fact that his “net worth” is approx. 12 million dollars? Do you have any idea how much of his salary or “net worth”–that he might give away to his own ministries and/or to other churches or people that are in need of help (food, clothing, housing)? Why be so judgemental until you know all the facts?!

      • He supports Donald Trump who is a liar, murderer, (2 people took chloroquine husband died because Trump said it was good,) Kurds, Ukraines. Locks up children in cages, cheats people out of $ Trump University, was impeached, cheated on his wife many times, War Time prez, what? He escaped VietNam and avoided Syphilis with bone spurs and golfs every weekend. Wants to start up country again with over 40,000 cases of Corona. This is who Frank supports, its all about the money with people like him or Tammy Faye, etc. I am a born again believer, Jesus walks with the poor and disabled, the weak, the sinners etc. Why doesn’t frank and trump donate a hotel or two to the real heroes of this world, the janitors, police people, nurses doctors, cashiers and many many more. Franklin could give a couple million to the cause for masks and ventilators. That’s what real, Christianity is about not saying ”You are saved” as they take your money. John McCain, Marie Yovanavitch, William Taylor, Mitt Romney, Mother Theresa are the real bearers of the faith. I have to leave now because I am going to the streets in Kensington, Philadelphia to feed the homeless because people are starving because of this Invisible Disease. Sir God Bless, God knows our hearts and we know our consciences. I am not judging you but Denise was expressing her frustration with a lot that is going on in this world. Thanks, Marie

        • Marie – “ Judge not, that ye be not judged!” Straight from Gods word !
          You have a warped idea of Gods words!
          I can give you more – “Let the one amongst you that is without sin , cast the first stone !” Can you truly say you have no sin ? No one can , no not one !
          You owe President Trump a apology !
          Unless you are perfect and without sin !
          I am not as I am human and try every day to be better – how about you ?

        • Nicer people would say it much better.. But you are an idiot. 2 people died from taking chloroquine. How many have been saved by it? Do bone spurs prevent syphilis? 40,000 cases of Corona? Between 04/09 and 04/10 there were between 43 and 89 million cases of swine flu in the US with between 8,868 and 18,306 deaths. No shut down of anything and the press still loved Obama. The same Obama who’s immigration department began the practice of separating illegal immigrant children from their parents and locking them up in cages. The person who compiled these stats would have you believe they have a clue how much anybody beyond themselves gives in the offering plate. Perhaps they give as Jesus said, ‘But when you give to the needy do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing’. Matt. 3:6. That said I am shocked at how lucrative the ministry can be.

        • Hey, Marie Valoris, Trump was recommending ‘Hydroxychlorquine’ (as were doctors across the globe) because it had shown remarkable results for people with coronavirus. He also specifically said he wanted to see more doctors prescribe it.

          The nitwits in Arizona ate ‘Chloroquine Phosphate’ which they found in their house. It is used to clean fish tanks. They didn’t consult a doctor, they just ate it.

          They died because of their own stupidity, not ‘Trump’.

      • I couldn’t disagree more with denese’s contempt for Trump, however, I’m sorry, but taking over $600,000 a year in salary from a charity, more than a cardiac surgeon makes, is disgusting, any way you slice it. If he wanted to give that money to charitable causes, he could distribute those funds as CEO without taking anything near 600000+ as personal income, the man is a fraud, and when he goes to humbly tell the lord all the great things he did for him, unless he repents, he’ll hear the words “depart from me, I did not know you”. Franklin goes around telling marginalized LGBT youth, many whom have been rejected by their families, that they’re going to Hell. God wouldnt do that, the poor gay kid just spent 50 years on the same planet as this man of a perverse gospel, Gods not gonna make him hang out with Franklin for the rest of eternity.

  3. Enriching yourself through the use of Christian evangelism, blindly following those who love money above all else, closing your mind to factual realities taking place around us, crying fake news every time you hear something that challenges your views, and most of all sharping the true message of Jesus Christ.

  4. God is sovereign and He is in charge. If people want to hold back money when they are able to give, that is Gods business. Politicians all have been caught in lies. What we know is that we are to pray for our leaders even if we hate their politics I have been guilty of all of these offences and so I must recommit to the fact that God is sovereign and I must look to him and not leaders and pastors who may or may not respond in the way we would like to see. God bless

  5. I would guarantee that the Graham’s give a MINIMUM of 10% of their earnings (personal, ministry, etc.) to charities. Not counting what they give above that. How much do you give of your earnings to charities? “Judge not lest ye be judged.” (Matthew 7:1-3) The Bible states that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil , not money itself. (1 Timothy 6:10). We (as Christians) are to reign as Kings in life by Christ Jesus. (Romans 5:17). Perhaps, as I once did, you should fall to your knees and ask Christ to come into your heart and accept Him as your Lord and Savior. Then when you read articles such as this one it won’t be like reading someone else’s mail.
