“Once upon a time in America, godly preachers shaped the worldview of the citizens of this country by preaching the Word of God “line upon line and precept upon precept.” No more. Now, the entertainment industry, the media, and the educational system, all with their humanistic, ungodly, unbiblical worldview, are the primary influencers of our society. Is it any wonder why evil is called good now and good called evil?
This Saturday in Hour 1 of The Christian Worldview, we’ll take a look back at the common distinctives of the great preachers of the past that had immense influence on America – from John Calvin and Martin Luther of the Reformation to the Puritan preachers of the 1600’s to George Whitefield and Jonathan Edwards of the Great Awakening to Charles Spurgeon in the 1800’s and several more who revived the hearts of millions for Christ.
Dr. Joel Beeke, president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan and conference speaker with Dr. Steven Lawson at this past week’s Expositor’s Conference in Mobile, AL, will join us to explain what made these preachers so effective and what we need to learn from them.”
