THE GREAT AWAKING. REDUX IS UPON US. JC IS GETTING THE BAND BACK TOGETHER, ONE MORE TIME AGAIN.
They held the first Great Awaking outdoors.
The 2nd redux Great Awakening, will come to you while sitting at home.
They will televise the revolution this time, and it will be online as well.
There was a massive appetite for evangelical Christianity held by men and women living on both sides of the Atlantic during the latter half of the eighteenth century.
That appetite is back with a vengeance this time around.
It’s not the people; it’s the event.
The First Great Awakening revitalized religious piety. It swept through the American colonies between the 1730s and the 1770s. That revival was part of a much broader movement, an evangelical upsurge taking place simultaneously on the other side of the Atlantic, most notably in England, Scotland, and Germany. Religious enthusiasm quickly spread from the Presbyterians of the Middle Colonies to the Congregationalists (Puritans) and Baptists of New England. In all these Protestant cultures during the middle decades of the eighteenth century,
A new Age of Faith rose to counter the Age of Enlightenment’s currents, reaffirming the view that being genuinely religious meant trusting the heart rather than the head, prizing feeling more than thinking, and relying on biblical revelation rather than human reason.
By the eve of the American Revolution, the evangelical converts accounted for about ten percent of all southern churchgoers. They put, in place, the appeal of evangelical Christianity to men and women living on both sides of the Atlantic during the latter half of the eighteenth century.
George Whitefield (Church of England) allied with other Anglican ecclesiastics who shared his evangelical bent, notably John and Charles Wesley. Together, they led a movement to reform the Church of England (much as the Puritans had attempted earlier to reform that church), which resulted in the founding of the Methodist Church.
After 1739, Whitefield preached everywhere in the American colonies, often drawing audiences so large that they had to be held outdoors. His sermons were primarily theatrical hellfire ones in nature. (Note: hellfire theatrics won’t work this time around).
The Log College (Princeton University) academically kicked things off. They sent missionaries out to the Southern states/territories.
Since the 1960s, conservative evangelical Protestant churches have grown dramatically, while the other denominations have been slip-sliding away. Concurrently, cultures worldwide have fallen into the sewers of oblivion.
Religious culture in America today bears many resemblances to that of the pre-awakened eighteenth century, a meandering, no direction home state of mind.
The long-term effects of the Great Awakening were the decline of Quakers, Anglicans, and Congregationalists. Concurrently, the Presbyterians and the Baptists were on the uptick. It also caused the emergence of Black Protestantism throughout the South. Religious tolerance grew. Denominationalism grew. Inner peace was at hand.
The Great Awakening religious revival in the British American Colonies mainly occurred between 1720 the 1740s. The birthing of America was just a little further on down the line.
The Great Awakening represented a reaction against the increasing secularization of society and the corporate and materialistic nature of the principal church of American society. Ditto for all of Europe too!
So, here we are, one more time again.
The Second Great Awakening, which spread religion through revivals and emotional preaching, sparked several reform movements. The Second Great Awakening was a Protestant religious revival during the early 19th century in the United States. The Second Great Awakening was a Protestant religious revival from 1795 to 1835. The Second Great Awakening made soul-winning the primary function of its ministry.
They also emphasized temperance and the emancipation of women.
We can divide the Second Great Awakening into three phases. The first phase (1795–1810). The second phase (1810–25) The third and final phase (1825–35) stemmed from the activities of evangelist Charles Finney.
The beliefs, values, and ideas of religious traditions have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to the development of human societies and cultures. The time is at hand to stop the fade away of Christian values.
Society is upstream from religion. We can only fix institutions of collectivism via Christianity. Religious traditions’ beliefs, values, and ideas have made significant contributions to human societies and cultures. A culture without a Christian value system can’t stand the test of time. The waters of oblivion see to that.
Atheism is a chain of fools. Communism is a yoke around the necks of its servants. Socialism is the gateway drug to the oblivion of communism.
We need democracy to get back to where it once belonged. Free to choose, you and me. Democracy and Christianity are the winning tickets to ride. The rest of it is a horrible waste of time.
The devolution of cultures is a global epidemic. Sewer cultures cover our globe. It has taken our culture about 60 years to fall this far.
The thrill of wallowing in a cultural sewer is slip-sliding away. Plus, the whiskey ain’t working anymore. The dawn of reality is upon us. We need to change things before we become men of constant sorrow. It’s high time we changed our ways and fixed the culture too!
