The famous American preacher likened the United States to Sodom and Gomorrah

The famous Baptist preacher from the U.S. 93-year-old Billy Graham published online letter to the nation, which states that his country is increasingly moving away from God.

He begins his letter with the words of his now deceased wife Ruth, who several years ago said, "If the Lord does not punish America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah" — cities of the Old Testament were destroyed by God for the perseverance of the inhabitants of the sin, according to the portal "Interfax-Religion."

"Millions of babies have been killed in the womb, and our country, it seems, for the most part, do not care.

Selfish indulgence for ourselves, pride and lack of shame to have committed sins — are now symbols of the American way of life "- quoted by the preacher's« Christian Post ».

Graham gives a few examples of harassment of Christians in the country, in particular the case when serving in police departments chaplains were forbidden to utter the name of Jesus in prayer.

"Our society tries to avoid any possibility of offending anyone but God. The further we move away from God, the more the world is out of control. My heart aches for America and its people cheated "- confessed author of the letter.

At the same time, in his opinion, the Americans still have a chance to repent and change their way of life.

"Wonderful news is that God — the God of mercy, and He responds to repentance. At the time of the prophet Jonah city of Nineveh in strength had no equal, was a wealthy, careless and self-centered. When Jonah went to Nineveh and proclaimed God's warning, people heard and repented ", — he added.
