    Evangelist Franklin Graham delivered a message Sunday night at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., mixing a bit of politics into his call for repentance.

    Reading from 2 Samuel 9:1-8, Graham recalled an event in the life of King David, in which the ancient ruler of Israel seeks to show God's kindness to the son of his childhood friend Jonathan.

    “You see, David is a picture of God in Heaven.” Graham told service attendees at the megachurch of evangelist Greg Laurie.

    “And we’re Mephibosheth,” he continued, referring to the Jonathan’s crippled son. “We’ve been crippled by sin and we come before the King and the King shows kindness and love and mercy.”

    During the message, Graham listed a variety of sins, from lying and stealing to bearing false witness.

    Most emphasized, however, was the sin of murder, in particular abortion.
