The gospel of Jesus Christ will exit the mouths of those who know him and those who do not. Those who do so out of envy, selfish ambition, and a way to manipulate people out of their money. Paul says, “but what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice.”
Why is Paul rejoicing, because he understands bad publicity is still publicity nonetheless and those who hearts are ready will receive Jesus whether the tool being used by God is dirty or clean.
You may have wondered or asked yourself why is Franklin Graham’s focus on international aid? When written in the pages of Deuteronomy 15:7-8, 10-11 we read, “If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother, but you shall open your hand wide to him and willingly lend him sufficient for his need, whatever he needs.”
Franklin Graham spends more money and time on those outside the walls of his own country. He will readily send aid to a black child in Africa, but will be silent on black mass incarceration in America. No mention of current housing discrimination and/or housing segregation. No real fight for flint Michigan, but will send plane after plane overseas. Why does he do this? What good man you know feeds another family before feeding his own?
So what is the reason for this? Its simple. The same reason his father’s popularity was greater than Jesus. It is because they both are tools for domination and subjugation. Their role is as ancient as time. They are the first legs before the warships. Be that as it may, Jesus is being preached and I rejoice. Why? The clock is running down for everyone and we all must give an account to God.

The above sounds like a good idea.
