Franklin Graham: The ‘only cure’ for mass shootings is ‘Jesus Christ’

Responding to the latest mass shooting, this time in Philadelphia, evangelist Franklin Graham took to Facebook and quoted the Bible, saying that the earth feels just as “corrupt” as it was when God sent a flood to destroy it.

“Five people were killed and several others wounded by a masked man shooting randomly in the streets of Philadelphia—one person killed was just 15 years old,” Graham wrote. “Three dead and eight injured in a Fort Worth parking lot on Monday night. 300 people have been murdered in Chicago so far this year.”

Graham went on to write that America’s cities have been overtaken by a “culture of drugs, death, and darkness.”

“Without respect for our laws—and most importantly, God’s laws—society as we know it will disintegrate. We are seeing the results of sin allowed to go unchecked,” he wrote, adding the violence is the result of a “heart problem.”

“The only cure for the heart problem causing the rampant violence is Jesus Christ. He alone can heal and transform the human heart and mind,” Graham declared.
