    The instrument is the truth. You may go and build a splendid new house of worship, and line your seats with damask, put up a costly pulpit, and get a magnificent organ, and everything of that kind, to make a show and dash, and in that way you may procure a sort of respect for religion among the wicked, but it does no good in reality. Without a revival they will grow harder and harder under preaching, and will experience a more horrible damnation than they would if they had never heard the Gospel. Frequently the most outrageous wickedness of the ungodly is followed by a revival. I believe, in fact, it is more certain, and that there are fewer instances of failure. The agencies employed in promoting it.

    I his would be a strange preaching if revivals were only miracles. This spirit will catch and spread in the Church; confidence will be renewed, and brotherly love prevail again. I wish this idea to be impressed on all your minds, for there has long been an idea prevalent that promoting religion has something very peculiar in it, not to be judged of by the ordinary rules of cause and effect; in short, that there is no connection of the means with the result, and no tendency in the means to produce the effect. The manner in which you have performed those duties. This formality will be emotionless and cold as an iceberg, and will evince a total want of earnestness in the performance of religious duty. Instances in which you have had a bitter spirit, and spoken of Christians in a manner devoid of charity and love; of charity, which requires you always to hope the best the case will admit, and to put the best construction upon any ambiguous conduct.

    He does not accept the service of bondmen, who serve him because they must. They will be filled with a tender and burning love for souls. It also introduced into America a new form of religious expression — the Scottish camp meeting. The stories of transformed lives cannot but fill the reader with wonder, love and praise. Perhaps you have weakened their influence by insinuations against them.

Lectures on revivals of religion book

When a revival of religion is needed. Measure your desire for their salvation by the self-denial you practice, in giving of your substance to send them the Gospel. A revival breaks the power of the world and of sin over Christians. I have sometimes inquired into such cases; when it had been given out that nobody knew anything about it until one Sabbath they saw by the faces of the congregation that God was there, or they saw it in their conference-room, or prayer-meeting, and were astonished at the mysterious Sovereignty of God in bringing in a revival without any apparent connection with means.

It is man's duty. At such a time a revival of religion is indispensable to avert the judgments of God from the Church. This book, along A seared conscience is also an evidence of a backslidden heart.

And the result is just as philosophical in the one case, as in the other, and is as naturally connected with the cause; or, more correctly, a revival is as naturally a result of the use of the appropriate means as a crop is of the use of its appropriate means.

No, you would not. A revival breaks the power of the world and of sin over Christians. While the eye is single the whole body will be full of spiritual light, but if the eye be evil, which is a backslidden heart the whole body will be full of darkness.

Just as in the case of a converted sinner, the first step is a deep repentance, a breaking down of heart, a getting down into the dust before God, with deep humility, and forsaking of sin.

When you have fallen down upon your knees and "said your prayers" in such an unfeeling and careless manner that if you had been put under oath five minutes after you could not have said for what you had been praying. Do not attempt to get back, by reforming your mere outside conduct.

The backslider in heart will be full of his own delusions. Torrey and Alexander were involved in the beginnings of the great Welsh revival He loses his peace.

Lectures on Revival of Religion

The preacher is a moral agent in the work; he acts; he is not a mere passive instrument; he is voluntary in promoting the conversion of sinners. Chalmers began life as a moderate in the Church of Scotland and an opponent of evangelicalism.

I believe, in fact, it is more certain, and that there are fewer instances of failure. She knew there would be somebody to come, for she felt as if God was going to pour out His Spirit. It is often almost nauseating to attend a prayer meeting of the backslidden in heart.

It will prove itself to be an unruly member, full of deadly poison, will set on fire the course of nature, and is itself set on fire of hell. A miracle has been generally defined to be, a Divine interference, setting aside or suspending the laws of nature. They think it will break up the society if you continue to preach, and I think you had better not preach any more.

God is a sovereign, and it is very wrong for you to attempt to get up a revival, just because you think a revival is needed.

The subsidence of religious feeling may be an evidence of a backslidden heart, but it does not consist in the cooling off of religious feeling.Lectures on Revivals of Religion brings together twenty-three lectures that the theologian Charles Finney gave to his church during the middle of the 19th century.
