There is a price to pay for taking a stand for what is right. The following article from The Associated Press is an example of what I’m talking about:
The Army says it’s considering whether to rescind an invitation to evangelist Franklin Graham to appear at the Pentagon on the National Day of Prayer after a religious liberty group complained about his description of Islam as “evil.”
Col. Tom Collins says Army leaders were meeting Wednesday and that withdrawing the invitation “is on the table.”
Collins says Graham was invited by the Colorado-based National Day of Prayer Task Force, which works with the Pentagon chaplain’s office on the prayer event.
A spokesman for the task force didn’t immediately return a call.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation raised the issue, saying Muslim employees at the Pentagon were offended by the invitation.
Although we don’t know what the out-come will be, it’s obvious that speaking the truth isn’t popular. I wouldn’t agree with Franklin Graham on many things, but I thank God that he was brave enough to tell the truth. If you have to compromise to win the approval of others the price is too high. We need more preachers who will speak the truth and let the chips fall where they may!
