Rev. Franklin Graham Brings Hope to Small Towns with a Powerful Message

Published:

Rev. Franklin Graham recently embarked on his “God Loves You Tidewater Tour,” bringing a message of hope and inspiration to small towns often overlooked in today’s America. The tour concluded in Edenton, North Carolina, drawing a remarkable 7,600 people in a town with a population of only 4,400.

With six stops spanning Maryland and Virginia, the tour attracted approximately 35,000 attendees. Graham’s central message to the crowds was simple yet profound: “If you can’t remember anything else tonight, remember that God loves you.”

Addressing the Portsmouth audience, Graham emphasized the importance of faith in Jesus Christ, highlighting the Biblical teaching that those who believe in Him will have everlasting life. During his North Carolina stop, Graham tackled challenging topics such as sex, marriage, and transgender issues. He advocated for sex within the confines of a traditional marriage between a man and a woman and denounced the “transgender business” as a lie from hell.

When asked about a recent Texas shooting, Graham emphasized that the problem extends beyond gun control, suggesting that the nation’s moral decay stems from turning its back on God. He attributed the decline to removing God and the Bible from schools and criticized the Department of Education for its detrimental impact on the country.

The tour targeted smaller communities because Graham believes that reaching these areas is just as important as preaching in major cities. He chose the region for its large population of people who are still searching for God and struggling in their lives. Over 885 churches from the region came together to support the tour and its message of hope and faith.

Angel Núñez, a pastor from Timonium, welcomed the tour, stating that many communities in the Baltimore area are plagued by drugs, violence, human trafficking, and hopelessness. In these times of despair, he believes that people need to hear about God’s love and experience His healing touch.
