Graham: Mideast Crisis 'Sign of End Times'

Ad Feedback

Rev. Franklin Graham says the conflicts in the Middle East and other global crises are signs of the end times.

"I believe we are in the latter days of this age, whether it's the last thousand years, last hundred years or last six months I don't know," Graham told Christianne Amanpour on ABC's "This Week."

"The Bible, the things the Bible predicts -- earthquakes and famines, nation rising against nation -- we see this happening with more frequency and more intensity," he said.

Graham, 58, also shared his thoughts on the 2012 race for the White House, saying he could support Donald Trump for president.

"Donald Trump, when I first saw that he was getting in, I thought that it was a joke," Graham said. "But the more you listen to him the more you say to yourself, 'Maybe the guy is right.'"
Trump's pro-life stance, revealed in an exclusive interview with CBN News, has been winning him favor with evangelical leaders.

While Graham appeared to endorse Trump, he revealed he had doubts about the authenticity of President Obama's Christian faith.

"For me, the definition of a Christian is whether we have given our life to Christ and are following him in faith, and we have trusted him as our Lord and Savior," Graham said. "That's the definition of a Christian."
