Interview with Morris Gleiser

As we only have two days left in the remainder of our revival meetings I thought that you might find this interview with Morris Gleiser helpful. This interview was taken from the Maranatha Baptist Bible College website:

Q: Do you enjoy preaching to college students?

A: I am getting to the age where my heart’s desire is to pass the sword to the next generation. I want to give them a passion, a vision for making a difference in the world. To be at Maranatha this week has been one of the greatest thrills of my life. There is certainly an energy inherent with being around college-age kids. But I have to remind myself I can’t run up and down the floor with them anymore.

You do use a lot of analogies from athletics in your preaching. Were you an athlete? Continue reading

2010 Revival Meetings – Sunday

There are so many exciting things that the Lord does at our church every year, but one of the real highlights is our annual Revival Meetings. Sunday did not lower our expectations, it only increased our desire to see God use the Revival Meetings. The Lord used Evangelist Will Galkin and his team in an impacting way yesterday. Brother Galkin preached a message titled Quicken Me from Psalm 119. You can listen to the audio or watch the video.

Before the Great Awakening by J. Edwin Orr

We tend to think that when a nation-wide revival came to our country in the late 1700’s and at other times that the United States was already a bastion of Bible-believing Christianity. Not true!

Read the account below by J. Edwin Orr:

Not many people realize that in the wake of the American Revolution there was a moral slump. Drunkenness became epidemic. Out of a population of five million, 300,000 were confirmed drunkards: they were burying fifteen thousand of them each year. Profanity was of the most shocking kind. For the first time in the history of the American settlement, women were afraid to go out at night for fear of assault. Bank robberies were a daily occurrence.

What about the churches? The Methodists were losing more members than they were gaining. The Baptists said that they had their most wintry season. The Presbyterians in general assembly deplored the nation’s ungodliness. In a typical Congregational church, the Rev. Samuel Shepherd of Lennox, Massachusetts in sixteen years had not taken one young person into fellowship. The Lutherans were so languishing that they discussed uniting with Episcopalians who were even worse off. The Protestant Episcopal Bishop of New York, Bishop Samuel Proovost, quit functioning: he had confirmed no one for so long that he decided he was out of work, so he took up other employment. The Chief Justice of the United States, John Marshall, wrote to the Bishop of Virginia, James Madison, that the Church “was too far gone ever to be redeemed.” Voltaire averred, and Tom Paine echoed, “Christianity will be forgotten in thirty years.” Continue reading
