Is Luis Palau the Next Billy Graham?


Some have compared evangelical preacher Luis Palau to Billy Graham. (ABCNEWS.com)

Oct. 8, 2005 — It doesn't look like a church. It's a huge party — a festival — for God. And you've probably never heard of the headliner: Luis Palau.

Palau, 70, has been preaching since he was a 12-year-old in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

But for the past six years, he's been putting on these massive festivals with Christian rock bands, a kids' play land and skateboards — all suggestions from his adult sons.

"I thought, what's skateboarding? I mean, I'm a grandpa, what do I do know?" said Palau. "And then, suddenly, the crowds were there and they began to double, then triple, now 10 times what we used to have before." ...

The real problem today is the popular, superficial appetite for celebrity ministers & evangelists, regardless of their theology. It's showbiz, vaudeville, the manipulative "big event" that people crave. Just like a rock concert, overwhelming emotions, afterwards followed by - what? A canned prayer, or true regeneration & sanctification? Maybe God is using them more than I can tell; I truly hope so.

Who in this country doesn't have a Bible by now? We're not living in modern China or the 1st or 15th centuries, in which the printed Word was scarce. But who today reads it and furthermore, heeds it? Water everywhere, yet few truly drink, IMHO.

I have known Mr. Palau for nearly thirty years and have too high a regard for him to call him the "next anything". He has always tried to be a faithful servant of God. While I am troubled by the larger part of evangelicalism, I would pray that we would not have another Billy Graham or Robert Schuller or Chuck Swindoll--we need a prophetic voice to cry in the wildnerness of
America which includes that distortion of evangelicalism as well as the evils of secular America. I have been in thousands of church meetings and have yet to hear a jeremiad in any crowd over several hundred.

I agree with Jim. Good points. There will be many in the last days claiming to be men of God. Yet by their fruits you'll know them. Graham and Palau use evangelism techniques unknown to the Apostolic church and on top of that they (at least Mr. Graham) send converts to apostate and impure churches who do not take the Bible alone as the inspired and inerrant word of God.

here's the link to Part 2 of the article. After you throw up from reading the first part, keep a rubbish can next to you while you read this. This is even more disturbing!!!

doesn't matter whether Mr. Palau is a "christian" or not. what matters is whether he adheres to the one world religion like mr. graham, mr. robertson, mr. packer, and pretty much all other super rich christians.

if you have the stomach for it, read this:

AFTER reading it, you then may go and throw up. It's okay. truth hurts sometimes but Truth will set you free!

Jim from Nebraska,

Of course Graham is a Christian because he is a Baptist minister and Graham has been preaching in Crusades for years that the way to get saved is to receive Christ as Savior and Graham has for years in his Crusades been having Altar Calls where individuals come forward to receive Christ as their Savior. Palau is also a Christian and has been doing for years the same thing that Graham has been doing.

One can ask, is Billy Graham, been really called, and is he a Christian? If Luis Palau is a disciple of Billy Graham, one day as to think if he is a Christian?

http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?ArtKey=graham

Is a very short article that everyone should look at.

If memory serves, near the end of the above booklet, is a commentary about para-Church activities, the bottom pamphlet is about ecumenism.

37 | Psalms  
The steps of a man are established by the LORD;
an He delights in his way,
when he falls, he shall not be hurled headlong;
Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.
I have been young, and now I am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,
Or his descendants begging bread.
All day long he is gracious and lends;
and his descendants are a blessing.

How gracious of Mr. Bush. Someone should bestow upon him and honorary doctorate!

He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this:
'I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
'Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews, and are not, but lie--behold, I will make them to come and bow down at your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
'Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell upon the earth.
'I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, in order that no one take your crown.
'He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write upon him the mame of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.
'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'

Have you become a calvanist? certainly this verse excludes "free-will" what happened?

Cont.,

"Some one will therefore ask me what counsel I would like to give to a believer who thus dwells in some Egypt or Babylon where he may not worship God purely, but is forced by the common practice to accommodate himself to bad things.

The first advice would be to leave [i.e. relocate-GB] if he could. . . . If someone has no way to depart, I would counsel him to consider whether it would be possible for him to abstain from all idolatry in order to preserve himself pure and spotless toward God in both body and soul.

***Then let him worship God in private, praying him to restore his poor church to its right estate*** (John Calvin, Come Out From Among Them, The Anti­Nicodemite Writings of John Calvin, a forthcoming book to be published by Protestant Heritage Press, "A Short Teatise", pp. 93, 94, emphases added)."

"As for the babblers who ridicule us, wondering if one cannot get to paradise except by way of Geneva, I answer: would to God they had the courage to gather in the name of Jesus Christ wherever they are, and set up some sort of church, either in their houses or in those of their neighbors, to do in their place what we do here in our temples! . . .

And, whoever has no means of being in the Christian church, where God is worshipped purely, let him at least groan night and day, 'Thine altars, Lord; it is only thine altars that I desire, my God, my king' (John Calvin, Come Out From Among Them, The Anti­Nicodemite Writings of John Calvin, a forthcoming book to be published by Protestant Heritage Press, The Third Sermon, On Psalm 27:4, pp. 192, 193, emphases added).

Excelent points Walt.

"You have to just draw the people, and I feel music, sports, actors … Americans go for that," Palau said.

But Jesus says "Nobody comes to me unless the Father draws..."
"You have not chosen me..I have chosen you."
Decision evangelism is not the way to draw people and make disciples...simply preach the word of the Gospel that anyone who repents and believes shall receive their sins forgiven or else goes to hell, and leave the rest up to God. That's all the Apostles did--if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

The article says:

"You have to just draw the people, and I feel music, sports, actors … Americans go for that," Palau said.

It seems so sad that 99% of these Christians who thrive on this type of celebrity fervor are Arminians and loosing their understanding of the true and faithful worship of God.

They then take it from the fields, and bring the same goofy hollywood games into their Sabbath worship.

And look who are the leaders...the ministers are pushing this agenda. The change will take place with good old fashion puritan daily family worship.

Here is a good directory for those families who would like to teach their children the blessings of family worship:
