If this is now the definition of a true God-sent revival then there’s no denying it, I’m antiquated.
Dr. Alex McFarland, apologetics author and religion and culture expert, is launching a new initiative called Project 2026 to restore Christian principles to America. The 15-year project will engage Christians and churches across the U.S. to pray and work toward changing dominant cultural trends back toward a Christian perspective by America’s 250th anniversary in 2026.
McFarland told The Christian Post Wednesday that many of the social movements in our culture, like the homosexual agenda and the spread of Islam and atheism have taken “15 to 20 years to come to fruition” and penetrate the culture. In looking at those trends, McFarland wanted to do something to reverse them, so he started studying the history of revivals and how they could impact the culture.
This is why he believes the 15-year time span of Project 2026 is integral in sparking a revival. He said the interest in a restoration of values is visible across the country.
McFarland, through a comprehensive plan, and help from other like-minded leaders around the country, hopes to involve 100,000 churches nationwide in the project over the next 15 years. To reach that goal, he will form organized coalitions, communicate the project’s goals through writing and syndicated radio programs, involve America’s youth, parents and grandparents by creating small-group study materials, and host national conferences. He said 2012 is about building that coalition, and in 2013 and 2014 McFarland and his team will be releasing some resources for churches and young adults.
As he speaks to young people, McFarland tells them: “We need to assert ourselves as leaders in various engines of the culture … as a Christian assume your role in journalism, medicine, science, and take your Christianity with you.”
Other core tenets of the project include: God, Life, Morality, Prayer and Worship and American exclusivism. (full article at CPost)
If you’ve not read about the powerful “GOD SENT – SPIRIT LED” revivals of the past, google Great Revivals in History. Compare what you find to this ridiculous man-made idea of revival which ‘has a form of godliness’ but denies ‘the power thereof’.
In the meantime listen to these voices from the past…
