The Billy Graham Association (BGEA) is giving away copies of the September edition of its Decision Magazine, which will feature a 2016 Electoral Guide.
According to Franklin Graham’s Facebook post announcing the giveaway, the magazine promises to examine “the major issues facing our nation, where the candidates stand and what God’s Word says.” Among the major issues the organization has identified in this year’s presidential election are “religious liberty, abortion and the Supreme Court…marriage, terrorism and more.”
A spokesman for the BGEA, Mark DeMoss, spoke with The Christian Post on the subject of the magazine. He said this is not the first time the organization has published similar election guides. He also answered a question about the possibility of the BGEA’s prolific political commentary drawing away from the advancement of the gospel. DeMoss assured CP that it was not.
According to DeMoss, “We believe this issue is consistent with that message, and that the gospel is what should propel believers to be involved in every aspect of the society in which they live.”
The BGEA and Franklin Graham in particular have made a point of reiterating they do not endorse any particular candidate, but are trying to help people “vote according to biblical truth.” As always, the organization is admonishing people to pray for the nation, especially during an election season that “could be the most important in our nation’s history.”
