Franklin Graham Preaches to 12,000 in Mainland China
Franklin Graham preached to some 12,000 people in mainland China on Sunday at the largest church in the country.

The event was described as historic for the magnitude of listeners in attendance, given that China has often been criticized for repressing religious freedom. According to the senior pastor of Hangzhou Chong-Yi Christian church, Graham’s event this past weekend was the church’s largest gathering ever.

“Franklin Graham’s May 11 sermon at Hangzhou Chong-Yi Christian Church is very significant,” said the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, according to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. “It highlights the strong possibility for cooperation that exists between United States and Chinese religious institutions and marks a positive path forward.” ...

It should also be added, that if Mr. Graham had to use an interpreter, he didn't do any preaching or very little, but the interpreter did.

Jim, has God ever prompted you to speak through an interpreter? He has, on occasion, done so with me (on a very small scale.) It is actually quite a good thing. First of all, the non-native speaker is humbled, as he shares the platform, and it acknowledges that we are not the center of attention, as both are testifying to God and not themselves. We cannot always share what we want to as our language might be limited. So sure it is good to have the nationals speak out themselves to their own people, but side-by-side is also respected in Asian cultures. I have seen God use it often. Humility is the key, and following God's prompting and staying to a message of grace through glorifying Jesus Christ. I still study and speak in the foreign language when I can, but when it is difficult topics, I have to humble myself and use interpreters.

It should also be added, that if Mr. Graham had to use an interpreter, he didn't do any preaching or very little, but the interpreter did. Yes he should be encouraging the Christian Church that is already in place, The Truth Behind The Church's Purpose. The Chinese need local Chinese congregations protected, not road shows.

There is an interesting story concerning Mr. Graham at onenewsnow.com/Persecution/Default.aspx?id=113830
It seems he is opposed to any kind of missionary work during the Olympics. He also says he wanted to encourage authorities to resolve conficts with the church, but would not criticize policies that critics say limit the church's independence and religious rights.
Ingrid Schlueter at sliceoflaodicea.com says it best, 'then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, "We ought to obey God rather than men".
