Billy Graham’s Daughter — Evolution & Rapture

A year ago we wrote Billy Graham’s Daughter on Gays & Evolutionists. That was about Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of Billy Graham, America’s most famous evangelical preacher.

Today we found another stimulating article about her. It’s Lotz warns Christians to get ready for the Rapture, which appears at the website of the American Family News Network, located in Tupelo, Mississippi. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:

Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz is sending a dire reminder to Christians that the Rapture can be just moments away, and warns that failing to be prepared for this “trip” – as the world enters the Last Days – is a tragedy. The daughter of Billy and Ruth Graham says that just as she make a checklist every time she leaves for a missions trip, Christians approaching the Rapture in the End Times must make sure that they are ready for the most important “trip” of their lifetime – and eternity, for that matter.

We know that you’ll be clicking over there to read the entire article for yourselves, so we’ll excerpt only what is reported regarding evolution. Here it comes:

She made the argument that Romans 1:23 refers to the godless theory of evolution being taught in the schools – a process that is not backed by scientific evidence or logic.

For those who may not have a bible handy, here’s what that scripture passage says (King James version, of course), in context:

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves

Then they quote rev Lotz, who says:

“That’s evolution … and our schools teach evolution as fact and Creationism – if it is mentioned – it is sort of a fringe theory,” she impressed, CP [the Christian Post] reports. “Therefore, God gave it over. God just backs away and gives us over in His first path in this downward spiral to sexual immorality. That is the sexual revolution … that is free sex, which actually is very expensive. When we refuse to repent of our sin and turn to God, then in [Romans] verse 26, God gives us over to sexual depravity – which is what we see all around us today. Then, we refuse to repent of our sin and turn to God.”

Here’s one more excerpt:

Lotz warned America that little time is left for it to get its house in order – before it is held accountable for its waywardness. … The Christian leader ended by reminding America that it has turned its back on God by pursuing its wicked ways and shunning His Word – and will face the consequence.

So there you are, dear reader. The rapture is coming. Abandon your foolish belief in evolution — which leads you on a downward spiral to sexual immorality — before it’s too late!

    Growing up as Lutheran, the closest I think I got to understanding the rapture, is the ‘until he comes again’ part of the apostle’s creed. Just looked up ‘rapture’ at Wikipedia … like creationism it is a relatively recent construct and multiple definitions/interpretations and timelines. Proving the bible as useful for true theology as Hambo says it is for science.

  2. The end of the world predicted — yet again????

    Armageddon tired of this nonsense!

  3. Aw, that’s why people didn’t evolve: there was no sex before that nasty Darwin guy! I’m glad Lotz cleared that up.

    2000 years and they are still waiting…

  5. Gawd! I hope she is right! GetRdone gawd!! And good riddens to the xtian dimwits!

  6. Creationism – if it is mentioned – it is sort of a fringe theory
    Rather: creationism, if it is mentioned, is not mentioned with the status of a theory. It is just empty words, a slogan in a negative advertising campaign. And not just “sort” “of a fringe”.

    As far as the Bible quote, ISTM that that is about idolatry, not just interest in the natural world. After all, if we are going to look where there are images of people, birds, beasts, we can find those in the exact replicas of Noah’s Ark.

  7. Michael Fugate

    Doesn’t that verse mean that humans are more like animals than gods?

  8. Rev. Lotz lays it on the line:

    The Christian leader ended by reminding America that it has turned its back on God by pursuing its wicked ways and shunning His Word – and will face the consequence.

    But…but…that was when the Kenyan cannibal Muslim was in charge!

    Surely, now with The Donald in the White House with Creationist VP Pence at his side helping Make America Great Again, the Lord is again smiling on the US of A and will welcome it back as God’s Own Country again!

  9. Quote inadvertently truncated: should of course be “The Christian leader” &c &c.

    Forgive me, O Great Hand of Correction, for my wicked ways, and spare me any grevious consequences!

    [*Voice from above*] Your typo is forgiven, my son; but there is one called Olivia who says you can never be forgiven for your sub-Sapiens ways.

    ‘Sexual depravity’? You mean like what`s been going on in religious institutions world-wide?

  11. Damn, I haven’t any idea of what to wear to a rapture. How much should we pack? Will there be outlets to charge our phones and tablets? Oh, I hate packing!

    I sympathise with Screwtape, C S Lewis’s character, a senior devil. In a lesser-known piece called “Screwtape Proposes a Toast” he bemoans the insipid fare Hell is now offered, and prefers the more robust nature of the sinners of the past.

    I find myself agreeing with him on the idiocy of the Christian tub-thumpers of today. There’s nothing of substance to them, nothing that remotely resembles intellectual content. These are people who cannot construct an argument, whose ideas are nothing but groundless assertions, and whose only reaction to refutation is to say it again, louder. There was a time when one could reasonably expect at least connected thought from the pulpit. Those times are gone.

    And so we have Anne Graham Lotz, poor thing. If I had nothing else against Billy Graham, what he did to his daughter alone would engage my loathing. Of course he was a recorded racist and hypocrite as well. But truly in his daughter we see the truth of what Shakespeare wrote: “The evils that men do live after them”.

    “That is the sexual revolution … that is free sex, which actually is very expensive.”

    Those are the words of someone who regrets the absence of a misspent youth to look back on.

  14. @Christine Janis:
    Misspent youth? I wouldn’t consider taking part in the sexual revolution as misspent time… far from it!

  15. Billy Graham was very pragmatic, a necessary trait (or perhaps skill in his case) to schmooze with the wheels of power. It is only through Graham’s children that Billy’s unfiltered and unadulterated nuttiness shines through. In many cases, children don’t necessarily reflect the values and prejudices of their parents, but in Billy Graham’s case I have a strong inclination that this is the case.

  16. Holding The Line In Florida

    The Farce is very strong in this one!!!

  17. Christine Janis, maybe Anne Graham Lotz is so intent on a future rapture because the absence of a misspent youth deprived her of rapture back then.

    I’d love to know how Graham’s daughter, or for that matter Richard Nixon’s prayer partner himself, would explain this Bible passage: “Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.” (Matthew 16:28)

    Remember, this is supposed to be Jesus himself speaking, essentially promising that some members of his audience would live until his own Second Coming–which if true would mean that Mel Brooks’ 2,000-year-old man would have company.
