In remarks about the current state of America, Christian leader Franklin Graham said he has never seen such hatred in the country and added that we are in a "spiritual crisis" because so much of the country has turned its back on God. 

"I don’t think I have ever seen the level of hatred we are seeing around us today," said Rev. Graham in a Jan. 12 post on Facebook. "It’s chilling. Where does this hate come from? It comes from the human heart."

"America has a spiritual crisis," said Graham.  "We have turned our back on our Creator, the Author of our freedom, and the One who has bestowed on us the bounty of this land that we enjoy."

"As you look around, just because other people’s hearts are filled with hate, don’t let hate fill yours," he said.  "Let God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, give you the strength, the joy, the fulfillment, and the peace that only He can. Jesus Himself instructs us to love our enemies, and the Bible challenges us."

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21).
