Hi CarmineI agree
Probably people who do give to Samaritan's Purse have a right to know where their money is going. I don't give to Samaritan's Purse, nor do I plan to. There is no connection between that ministry and SermonIndex. This is just an attempt to create some dirty laundry to air, and is nothing other than speculation and gossip. I honestly don't mind if Franklin Graham makes a hundred times as much as he does now. In fact, if he made $800 billion per year, I should probably be glad, because maybe he is a more faithful steward than I am. The Lord Jesus never talked about how much people made, and we shouldn't either. Pay attention to what you do with your own money, and let Franklin answer for his. If you don't like how much he makes, don't sin by creating gossip, but write a letter to the ministry and request a response. Let's stick to Christ and the Gospel and SermonIndex's stated themes. What Franklin makes isn't our business here.

here is a piece from a news site:Six years ago, Franklin Graham decided to give up his pay as head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.“I feel that God has called me to this ministry and that calling was never based on compensation,” he wrote then in a memo to the BGEA staff.But since 2011, at the urging of the Charlotte-based ministry’s board of directors, Graham has been receiving a salary again.Read more here: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/religion/article30505932.html#storylink=cpy--This does show, I am not sure for how many years he recieved no pay. Also we are not sure what costs there are for his father and other things. Lastly, we do not know if he tithes most of the money.

Dear LysaI do not need to defend my post. Take it up with Jesus if you like.
This thread is kind of ridiculous.Biting and devouring a man who no one has contacted personally with their concerns. Is a salary fruit? Or is character and behavior, fruit?
Rev keep up the good work and do not let the enemy hinder the truth. Your post was without malice. So many justify greed in the name of religion and if someone points it out some will always pull out the judgement card.
This is my last post.
