The nearly 97-year-old Billy Graham voiced his concern over the state of affairs in America and abroad.
SRNNews.com reports that Graham, who is a few weeks short of his 97th birthday, has observed that the world he was born into in 1918 is barely recognizable today.
The famous evangelist’s son, Franklin Graham, who has taken over his ministry, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, stated that his father is concerned with “the moral decline of this nation, and the embracing of sin.”
Graham said his father was particularly concerned about the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage, as well as the plight of Christians in the Middle East.
Graham added that his father is still relatively healthy, but beginning to slow down, although he is still interestedly watching the presidential race.
Graham’s most recent book, Where I Am, was released this week. The family says he doesn’t plan to write anymore.
