Editor’s Note: This week we bring to the spotlight a piece from Luis Palau presented at the Second International Congress on World Evangelization held in Manila in 1989. Palau, a widely known evangelist whose ministry reached millions of people over many years, passed away on 11 March 2021 at the age of 86.
Evangelism is the best form of social action. It deals with the root of the problem, not with the symptoms. Yet why do we shrink away from it—what are we afraid of? Luis Palau addresses our fears in light of Christ and the power of the Spirit to not only better, but change lives.
