The Rev. Franklin Graham told Muslims during a nationally televised interview on Fox News that they should convert to Christianity — that Jesus Christ will forgive and save them.

“I want to say something to all the Muslims that may be watching this that are confused and are afraid themselves,” Mr. Graham said during an interview with Sean Hannity. “I want them to know that God loves them and that Jesus Christ died for their sins — and Christ will forgive them and heal their hearts.”

Mr. Graham also told those of the Islam faith that they didn’t have to resort to jihad and murder — that there was another way, The Blaze reported.

“They don’t have to die in a jihad,” he said, the media outlet reported. “They don’t have to kill somebody else to please God. God loves them, and he will accept them through faith and through his son, Jesus Christ.”

And one more thought: Mr. Graham cautioned that the Islamic world was “being torn apart by its own hand,” he said, The Blaze reported. His suggestion? The United States ought to stop giving money to any nation or group that pushes for the killing of innocents, he said during the newscast.
