Franklin Graham warns Biden: ‘Omitting God is a dangerous thing’

Prominent evangelist Franklin Graham took to Facebook Thursday to criticize President Joe Biden’s failure to include the word “God” in his presidential proclamation recognizing Thursday’s National Day of Prayer.

“I was deeply saddened to read that President Biden is the first president to omit the word ‘God’ in his proclamation,” wrote the 68-year-old son of legendary evangelist Billy Graham, who called on Congress and President Harry Truman in 1952 to issue the first National Day of Prayer proclamation.

“It is hard to believe we have come this far.”

Graham, who heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, warned that “omitting God is a dangerous thing.”

“He is who we as individuals and as a nation need to call on for help. He created us and made salvation possible for us through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. Prayers to anyone or anything else are to no avail.”

Biden’s omission of any reference to a deity led to an outcry among some notable Christian conservatives.

“[W]e need to call on God, not just some generic Gods or some power in the air, but on God, Himself, the Creator who made and created this earth and who sent his son Jesus Christ from heaven to this earth, to save mankind from sin by dying on a cross and God raised him to life,” Graham asserted on “Fox News Primetime” Thursday.
