Franklin Graham signs resolution: 2017 the year of Good News
Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, believes that in the midst of the fake news, political division, and problems our nation is facing, 2017 is going to be the year of 'Good News' and he is asking believers to join him in signing a resolution to show it.
"In a time of fake news, distracting news, divisive news, disorderly news, and, sometimes, depressing news we—as Christians and as leaders—want to recommit ourselves to making sure that the Good News of Jesus cuts through it all. We call upon Christians in America to make 2017 “The Year of Good News.”
Graham continued on Facebook writing, "Because 2017 is such a critical year for America, it must become the Year of Good News."
In the midst of all the other conversations happening in America and all the other solutions being presented to heal our land, Graham called for a return to the Good News of Jesus as the only answer to our nations problems,
"Our message is the Good News that God loved us so much He sent His son to this earth on a rescue mission. Jesus who is fully God and fully man lived a perfect life, died a perfect death and rose again from the grave.
"We need a national miracle to heal our political, racial and cultural divisions, and that miracle is found in the power of Jesus to change our hearts. Therefore, we commit to preach louder than our nation’s politics, and we aim to make the message of Jesus Christ transcend the monopoly of our media. We confess our only hope of unity is on the level ground at the foot of the cross of Jesus, and our only hope of healing is in the victory achieved through his empty tomb."
