Get Ready, the Next Revival Will Be Very Messy

Many Christians pray for spiritual awakening, and that's good. But I wonder if we realize how disruptive revival will be when it hits us like a tsunami. If you read accounts of previous revivals, three things become obvious: (1) revival requires a lot of work; (2) it's always chaotic; and (3) it offends religious people. It's not always welcome in traditional churches.

Just read the account of the revival in Samaria in the book of Acts. There was nothing orderly about it. Because the Samaritans had been entrenched in occult practices, many of them were set free from demons—and the evil spirits were "coming out of them shouting with a loud voice" (Acts. 8:7). Then, after the apostles arrived from Jerusalem, a prominent sorcerer named Simon offered to buy the Holy Spirit's power, and Peter rebuked him. The arrival of Christianity completely unplugged Simon's deception.

When the Azusa Street revival began in Los Angeles in 1906, many mainstream Christians labeled it a heresy, either because they didn't believe in speaking in tongues, or because white Christians were worshipping in the same building with Black believers.

Did Mr. Rogers Warn Against Transgenderism?

2023CMPrintcoverWhile he may not have realized it at the time, Fred Rogers, otherwise known as "Mr. Rogers" on the children's television program "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood," may have been anti-trans and also prophetic about the culture in America more than 40 years ago.

A devoted Christian, Rogers, who hosted the program on Public Broadcasting Service from 1968 to 2001, sang a song called "Everybody's Fancy" in several episodes. In the song, Rogers proclaims, "Boys are boys from the beginning, and girls are girls right from the start. Everybody's fancy, everybody's fine. Your body's fancy and so is mine."

It is a far cry from what is happening in American culture today, as "gender identity" and transgenderism have become popular not only with adults but also with children.
