The son of Billy Graham and founder of Samaritan's Purse weighed in on the controversy in a Facebook post.
"What we're seeing in the recent string of what is termed 'misconduct' really boils down to a morality issue-people failing to follow God's standards, and that is called sin," he contended. "The Bible tells us '... be sure your sin will find you out.' This is a warning to all of us to examine our lives."
The evangelist emphasized that the commandment doesn't just apply to movie stars, media personalities, and politicians, but to everyone.
"One sin leads to others and can have a great impact on our own lives and the lives of those around us," he said. "Sin has devastating consequences-here on earth, and for eternity. But God is anxious for us to come to Him in repentance and ask for His forgiveness and help. True healing comes through trusting Jesus Christ in faith and following Him as the Lord of our lives."
