Billy Graham's daughter: 'God is using coronavirus to turn us away from secularism'



In an op-ed published in Charisma News this Saturday, Christian evangelist and daughter of the legendary evangelist Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, wrote that there may be a “silver lining” to the growing coronavirus outbreak.

Lotz writes that the “black cloud of the coronavirus has enveloped our nation,” and seems to be “obliterating our view of freedom, of peace, of happiness.” As she prayed on the matter, Lotz says he had a vision from the Old Testament showing the “recently freed Israelite slaves” as they were “camped at the base of Mount Sinai.”

“God spoke to Moses, the man He had used to liberate the people from bondage in Egypt,” she writes. “The Lord said He would come in a thick cloud to Moses. The Bible then goes on to describe the thunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud.”

According to Lotz, that “thick cloud” has manifested itself today in the form of the coronavirus.

6. Agree!

I've about had it with folks claiming they know what God thinks when they obviously have no relationship with a loving deity (the one they claim to worship) or even a concept of what such a being would be like.

Does she look in the mirror before she leaves the house?

I just want to know how is that god gives them visions and not the atheists. One would think that atheists are the ones he's trying to get thru to. Myself I'm an agnostic and I've never a vision from anyone.

If there were a deity, it would be giving them a fatal case of that disease. Since that is not happening, it's more evidence that no such entity exists.

24. Anne Graham is fishing for Dollars not souls or salvation


The Nixon tapes in the Oval Office revealed her dad Billy Graham to be a dreadful anti-semite, nastily disparaging Jewish people.

I think a better analogy she could make is that of Moses coming down from Mt. Sinai to find half of the Israelites worshipping a Golden Calf or Mammon. He then had the money-worshippers slaughtered on the spot.

No Promised Land for the cult worshippers of the Golden Calf.

27. She's "handsome". Looking at her, I can tell what her brothers might look like.

What I find odd about Evangelicals is that they immediately jump to this being the Lord's indictment against a secular society, or this being our punishment for living in an unholy manner. They never look at the mirror and say, "You know, is this my penalty for amassing millions and millions of dollars? For supporting and defending a known rapist and philanderer? Or is this due to the fact that I personally don't believe in offering shelter and comfort to strangers and foreigners?"

For any future re-make of "The Wizard of Oz", this woman would be a shoo-in for a key role. She's obviously good at melting down and certainly has the looks and disposition. The real deal perhaps?

So that event, And the parting of the Red Sea, and the destruction of the Egyptian army, all that miraculous stuff, must be documented in Egyptian records of the time, right, Anne? Oh, wait, they're not?
