The Rev. Billy Graham, an American prophet and the most inspiring evangelist of the past century, warns that America’s problems have been triggered by our self-centered obsessions, pride, and lack of shame over sin.

Still, Dr. Graham remains hopeful for America’s spiritual revival and return to God.

At age 98 and retired from the pulpit, Graham has dedicated his closing days to saving America by turning souls to Christ, who died on the cross for their sins.

They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen” (Ezekiel 16:49–50, NIV).

I wonder what Ruth would think of America if she were alive today. In the years since she made that remark, millions of babies have been aborted and our nation seems largely unconcerned. Self-centered indulgence, pride, and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle…
