    That is shameful. We should always support those suffering for Christ. Furthermore, add Palau to the long list of those who come over to Asia and after just a few days think they know exactly what is going on.

    China is a very complex culture with over 50 people groups in it, 3000 years of recorded history and over a billion people. For an American to come over thinking he's got it all figured out without years of study, thought and dealing with the people is arrogant.

    Palau should have come over to Asia with humility and many questions. A news crew the other day from much-maligned ABC actually visited a house church and found out far more than Palau, concluding that they were actually persecuted by the government. :(

    Rather than shameful, I might label it misinformed. Luis Palau has been for many years a great evangelist to Spanish speaking nations and peoples and to the world at large. He would never make statements like this if he were properly informed. He has a heart for the lost. We attended the same church back in the 70's so I knew a bit of his ministry.
