WASHINGTON — Franklin Graham, son of American evangelist Billy Graham, said Sunday the state of world affairs could be construed as the end of days.

Graham made his comments on ABC’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.” Asked if Easter is about sacrifice or love, Graham said it’s about both.

“It’s all of that,” Graham said. “It’s God’s love. It’s the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for me. When I look at Easter, I look at my sins and realize that Jesus Christ paid my debt in full when he died on that cross. He died for me. He died for you.”

Graham, who has said we live in the day of the anti-Christ, said he is concerned about secularism. “I look at the world in which we live today, and the secularism is … anti-Christ. It’s every bit anti-Christ. We can’t talk about Jesus in our schools. God has been kicked out of our government. And whether it’s Europe or whether it’s here, yes, the spirit of anti-Christ is in the world today.”
