BUT YOU KNOW, AND THEN THE CHRISTIANS IT SAID YOU SHOULD WORSHIP TO THE LORD IF IT WOULD BE GIVEN TO HIM VOLUNTARILY LIKE LOVE. AND WE HAVE IN AMERICA THE BEGINNINGS OF THE REVIVALS. AND SOME OF THEM ARE QUITE FASCINATING.>>HERMAN: AND I LOVE THIS AND I LOVE IT AND THIS IS IN THE BOOK.>>GUEST: AND THERE WOULD BE SOME GREAT FOLKS HERE, AND THERE WAS A MAN IN GERMANY, AND HE WAS NEAR AN AREA CALLED MORAVIA, AND THEY WERE NOBLE, NOBILITY, AND HE WAS LEFT QUITE A BIT OF LAND, AND HIS MOTHER WAS VERY PIOUS AS A GERMAN, AND HE WAS GONNA GO ON A TOUR AROUND EUROPE, AND HE WANTED TO MEET LOBBYISTS. HE WAS IN DÜSSELDORF. HE SAW A PAINTING OF CHRIST, AND HE WAS LOOKING AT THE PERSON, IT SAYS, I DID THIS FOR YOU BUT WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME? AND HE GOES BACK AT HE OPENS UP HIS ESTATE FOR THE PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS IN EUROPE, AND HE WANTED TO HELP THEM TO LIVE TOGETHER. THEY BEGAN TO BICKER, HE GOES TO LIVE WITH THEM OUT OF THE PALACE AND THEY HAVE A SERVICE ON COMMUNION. AND THEN THIS ALL BECOMES A PRAYER MEETING AND THEY WOULD FORGIVE ONE ANOTHER. THEY CARE FOR THE CHILDREN, AND THIS GOES ON FOR MAYBE 100 YEARS A LONG TIME, IT GOES ON FOR 100 YEARS. AND THEN ABLE TO KEEP IT GOING FOR 100 YEARS. AND THEY WOULD SEND OUT MISSIONARIES, TO EGYPT, GEORGIA AND ICELAND, AND ON THE BOAT COMING BACK TO GEORGIA, THERE WERE TWO BROTHERS, THE WESLEY BROTHERS, JOHN WESLEY WOULD BE AN ANGLICAN, HE WAS A REFORMIST, HE WAS GOING TO BE A MINISTER IN THE COLONY. AND THEN HIS BROTHER WAS GOING TO HELP THE GOVERNOR WITH HIS WORK WITHIN THE STATE. AND THEN THEY FACE A STORM, AND EVERYBODY THINKS THEY SHALL DIE, BY THE MISSIONARIES, AND THEY ARE PRAISING THE LORD LIKE NOTHING IS HAPPENING. AND YOU KNOW, AND THEY NEED TO KNOW JESUS AND THAT IT WAS JOHN WESLEY. HE TRIES TO BE A MISSIONARY AND THAT DOES NOT WORK OUT. AND HE WANTS TO GIVE THEM DOCTRINE. AND YOU KNOW, AND MANY PEOPLE IN THE COLONIES WANTED TO DRINK WHISKEY. AND YOU KNOW HE FELT LIKE A COMPLETE FAILURE WHEN HE WOULD BACK TO ENGLAND, AND HE MET SOMEBODY ELSE AND THEY WENT TO A PRAYER MEETING, IT WAS AT ALDERSGATE. THEY WERE PRAYING ALL NIGHT LONG AND THE HOLY GHOST MET THEM, JOHN AND CHARLES GET IT, AND THEY WOULD BE AMAZED BY THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.>>HERMAN: THEY WERE FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST FROM THEN ON.>>GUEST: HIS SAYS MY HEART WAS WARMED, AND HE GOES OVER TO THIS PLACE IN GERMANY, HE WAS AT THE LORD’S VILLAGE IN GERMANY. AND HE SAYS THIS IS THE FIRST PLACE WHERE PEOPLE REALLY LIVE THE GOSPEL, EVERYBODY LOVES ONE ANOTHER, AND YOU KNOW, IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE THREATENINGS OF THE KING, YET HE GOES BACK TO BRING A REVIVAL IN THE ANGLICAN DENOMINATION AND IT IS METHODISM, HE IS ALL AROUND ENGLAND, BRINGING OUT THE HUGE CROWDS. AND ONE OF THE FOLKS THAT WOULD BE TURNED ON WOULD BE GEORGE WHITFIELD, AND AND THIS WAS HIS MINISTRY AND HE COMES TO BE AN EVANGELIST IN THE COLONIES. HE IS PREACHING UP AND DOWN, AND HE IS A REVIVALIST, AND YOU KNOW, HE WOULD BE THE OLD LIGHT, AND YOU KNOW, HE WAS INTO THE DOCTRINE, VERY DRY. AND THERE WAS A MISSIONARY WHO WAS EXPELLED OUT OF HARVARD, HE SAID, THE PROFESSOR WAS LIKE A DOORKNOB. AND SO THEY KICKED HIM OUT. AND YOU KNOW, AND THEY DID NOT LIKE GEORGE WHITFIELD, HE COULD NOT REACH. HE BEGAN TO GO OUTSIDE. AND THE CROWDS WOULD GROW. AND YOU KNOW, AND THE PEOPLE WOULD CONSTANTLY GROW, HE WOULD HAVE 20,000 PEOPLE. PEOPLE WOULD BE OUT IN THE TREES, PEOPLE WOULD BE SAVED. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN WAS A PRINTER, AND HE BEGAN TO PRINT HIS SERMONS, AND HE BEGINS TO SPREAD THE REVIVAL BY SPREADING OUT THE SERMONS. AND THEN HE WOULD HAVE A HUGE CROWDS, AND THEN YOU KNOW THE UNIVERSITIES CAME OUT OF IT.>>HERMAN: AND WHICH ONES? LIKE HARVARD?>>GUEST: AND HARVARD AND YALE WERE THE FIRST ONES AND THEN THERE WAS PRINCETON AND THEN THERE WAS BROWN UNIVERSITY, THESE WERE BIBLE COLLEGES.>>HERMAN: THAT IS SO AMAZING.>>GUEST: AND THEY WERE SCHOOLS FOR THE PREACHERS SO THAT PEOPLE COULD BE MINISTERS TO THE INDIANS, AND NOW THEY ARE WHAT THEY ARE TODAY BUT THERE WAS A REVIVAL THAT ABOUT THE COLONIES TOGETHER, PRIOR TO THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. AND THEY DID NOT GET ALONG, THEY ALL HAD THEIR OWN DENOMINATIONS. VIRGINIA THEY WERE ANGLICANS, AND THEY WERE CHASE AWAY THE PEOPLE.>>SHARRON: AND THEY WERE DOING THE SAME THING?>>AND YES AND THEN NEW YORK WAS DUTCH REFORMED, AND THEN THEY HAD THE SWEDES, AND THE CATHOLICS, AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, WERE THE CONGREGATIONALIST. AND YOU KNOW THEY WOULD’VE TORE AT A FURTHER ONE ANOTHER.>>HERMAN: REALLY? WAS THAT REALLY TRUE?>>GUEST: AND YES I WAS IN THE STATE OF MAINE, AND THERE WAS A CATHOLIC PRIEST THAT WAS TARRED AND FEATHERED. AND THEY WOULD PUT YOU UNDER TAR AND FEATHERS, AND THEY WOULD TAKE SOMETHING, AND YOU, AND YOU KNOW YOU COULD NOT GO ANYWHERE AND THEY WOULD MARCH AROUND TOWN ON A RAIL, AND SO YOU WOULD BE RUN OUT OF TOWN ON A RAIL. AND WHEN THE REVOLUTION BEGAN, AT A BECAUSE OF THE GREAT AWAKENING REVIVAL THE COLONIES BEGAN TO SOFTEN, AND THEY COULD SEE AT A MAYBE WE REALLY DON’T BELONG TO A DENOMINATION BUT WE ALL WOULD WORSHIP THE LORD JESUS. AND GEORGE WHITFIELD WOULD SAY, AND THERE IS NO ONE HERE, AND HE WOULD SAY, AND WHEN YOU GO THROUGH THE GATES OF HEAVEN WE SHOULD WORSHIP THE LORD TOGETHER. AND THEN THEY FINALLY GOT IT AND THEY LAID ASIDE OF THE SCHISMS. AND THIS WAS THE FIRST GREAT AWAKENING. THIS IS OUR FANTASTIC HISTORY STUDY.>>SHARRON: THIS IS SO GREAT.>>HERMAN: IF YOU COULD COVER THIS, THE BLACK HARRY AND DO YOU KNOW THAT STORY? AND YOU KNOW, THIS MATTER, HE’LL BE COMING BACK, AND WE SHALL DO THESE IN A SEQUENCE OKAY? HE’LL BE COMING BACK. THIS WOULD BE THE FIRST ONE, AND WE WILL BE COVERING MOST OF THE CHAPTERS, AND WHEN HE COMES BACK, WE WOULD GO THROUGHOUT THE BOOK, 21-40. AND WHEN YOU GET YOUR COPY OF THIS BOOK, AND YOU KNOW YOU MIGHT GIVE IT AWAY, AND YOU WOULD GIVE THIS TO THEM, AND MAKE SURE YOU GIVE IT BACK TO ME. AND YOU KNOW, IT WOULD BE THAT TYPE OF BOOK.>>SHARRON: AND PEOPLE NEED THIS, IS FOR THE TEENAGERS.>>HERMAN: AND THEY SHOULD BE TAUGHT IN THE SCHOOLS.>>SHARRON: AND PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT OUR HISTORY.>>HERMAN: ALL RIGHT TALK ABOUT HARRY.>>GUEST: AND THERE WERE DIFFERENT STATES, AND WE BROKE AWAY FROM BRITAIN, THAT ANGLICANS, WAS THINKING THAT THE KING WAS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH, AND THEY BROKE AWAY. AND THEN THEY GO BACK TO ENGLAND AT ONE OF THE MEN STAYS AND HE WAS A METHODIST AND HE WAS A CIRCULATING PREACHER AND HE GOES OUT OF CANADA AND HE IS PREACHING AND THEY HAVE ABOUT 300,000 PEOPLE, IT WAS HUGE, AND HE ORDAINS A BLACK MINISTER, RICHARD ALLEN, AND HE STARTS THE AME, AFRICAN-AMERICAN EPISCOPAL AND YOU KNOW, AND THEY HAD A WOMAN TEACHER, AND YOU KNOW, AND HE BRINGS HAIRY HOOSIER, AND THE MAN WAS A LITTLE BIT BUT HE WOULD LISTEN TO THE MAN, AND HE WOULD READ THE BIBLE WITH THE MAN, AND HE WOULD MEMORIZE WHOLE CHAPTERS. THE MAN WAS BRILLIANT. HE WOULD GIVE THE SERMONS VERBATIM, AND THEY WERE THINKING THAT HE WAS ONE OF THE BEST PREACHERS EVER IN AMERICA. HE COULD NOT READ. HE DID THIS BY MEMORIZATION. AND HE WAS AT BETHLEHEM PENNSYLVANIA, AND THEY TRIED TO MOVE THEM OUT OF THE ANGLICAN CHURCH AND MAKE A DENOMINATION SO RIGHT? AND THIS MAN, HARRY, SO MANY PEOPLE WOULD COME TO HIS REVIVAL, AND YOU KNOW, AND THEY WOULD SAY, LIKE THESE WILL BE THE LUTHERANS, THEY WOULD CALL THEM THE HOOSIERS. AND THEY WERE TO COME TO HIS REVIVAL, AND YOU KNOW, AND THIS MAN WAS LIKE UNEDUCATED. BUT IT BECAME DEROGATORY BUT THEN IT BECAME POSITIVE. AND THIS WAS SOMEONE, THAT HAD DONE SO MUCH WITH THE LORD, AND THEY HAD SUCH A HUMBLE BEGINNING. AND THEY WENT OUT TO INDIANA. AND THIS IS WHERE WE GET THE INDIANA HOOSIERS.>>SHARRON: IS THIS WHERE THIS COULD COME FROM?>>HERMAN: I COULD SIT AT HIS FEET ALL DAY LONG.>>SHARRON: ALL RIGHT I LOVE THAT THE INDIANA HOOSIERS.>>HERMAN: TALK ABOUT AMAZING GRACE.>>GUEST: AT ONE OF THE FORGOTTEN CHAPTERS WOULD BE THE ROLE OF THE BLACK MAN AND WHEN THESE THINGS WERE HAPPENING YOU HAD A BLACK MAN GEORGE LYLE AND HE GOES TO JAMAICA, 8000 PEOPLE WERE SAVED. AND HE WAS A BLACK MISSIONARY, GEORGE LYLE. AND THE REVIVAL SPREADS. HOWEVER, IN ENGLAND, YOU BEGIN TO HAVE THE MISSIONARY MOVEMENT, IS EVOLUTIONISTS. AND THERE WAS JOHN NEWTON, HE IS REBELLIOUS. HE IS ON THE STREETS, AND THEY WOULD HAVE A GANGS, AND YOU WOULD BE A KID, AND THE BULLIES WOULD GRAB YOU, AND THEY WERE JUST SAIL AWAY WITH YOU, THEY WOULD MAKE YOU, YOU WOULD BECOME A SAILOR, AND YOU COULD NOT GET OFF AND YOU WILL BE STUCK, AND HE HAD TO GO TO A BRITISH NAVAL SHIP. HE WAS SO ORNERY, HE WOULD BE WHIPPED, AND HE WAS TRADED AWAY, AND FINALLY THEY PUT THEM ON A SLAVE SHIP. IT WAS TAKING SLAVES FROM AFRICA, AND BRINGING THEM TO THE NEW WORLD. AND THEY WOULD BUY THE SLAVES FROM THE MUSLIMS. AND WHEN HE WAS THERE, AND THEY SHADED HIM AWAY OFF OF THE SHIP, HE BECAME A SLAVE TO THE, TO THE OTHER OWNERS, AND SO HE BECAME A SLAVE. AND FINALLY, HE LEFT THAT AND SOMEONE HAD GIVEN HIM A BOOK, IT WAS A BOOK CALLED THE IMITATION OF CHRIST. HE READ THE BOOK. HE BECAME CONVICTED. HE THOUGHT HE WOULD DIE IN A STORM, AND HE PRAYED A PRAYER FOR THE FIRST TIME. HE WINDS UP GETTING OUT OF THE STORM. HE WANTS TO BECOME A MINISTER. AND HIS WIFE STAYED WITH HIM. HE WINDS UP MEETING, AND THEY HAVE SO MANY RULES, THAT YOU ARE PASSING THESE TESTS. AND HE DOES ALL OF THE SEMINARIANS, PASSING TESTS, AND FINALLY, HE COULD BE A MINISTER. AND HE MET OTHER FAMOUS PEOPLE AND HE WROTE THE SONG AMAZING GRACE, THAT SAVED A WRETCH LIKE ME, I WAS BLIND BUT NOW I CAN SEE AND THAT HE BECAME AN ANTHEM, SO HE BECOMES A FRIEND OF WILLIAM WILBERFORCE, THIS WAS A MAN IN THE PARLIAMENT, AND HE WAS A VERY HIGH RANKING PARLIAMENTARIAN. AND YOU KNOW HE WAS THINKING HE WANTED TO BE A MINISTER, AND JOHN NEWTON SAYS YOU CAN SERVE GOD IN MANY WAYS, BUT WHY DON’T YOU USE YOUR POSITION TO GET RID OF SLAVERY. SO WILLIAM WILBERFORCE KEEPS BRINGING IT UP, HE SAYS WE SHOULD NOT HAVE SLAVERY ANYMORE. AND THEY WANTED TO GET RID OF THE TRADE, IT WAS DECADES OF WORK, A LOT OF PEOPLE MADE MONEY. AND YOU KNOW, YOU ALWAYS HAVE PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE MOTIVATED BY THE GOSPEL, AND YOU KNOW THESE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL CARE FOR THE PEOPLE, AND THEN THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WOULD BE MOTIVATED BY MONEY, AND THEY SELL PEOPLE INTO SLAVERY.>>HERMAN: THEY GO TO WASHINGTON.>>GUEST: AND SO THAT IS A HEART PROBLEM, AND YOU KNOW IT DOES NOT MATTER THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN, BUT WHAT WOULD BE IN YOUR BRAIN?ARE YOU SELFISH AND GREEDY? SO WILLIAM WILBERFORCE, AND FINALLY, HE USES HIS BRILLIANCE HE BRINGS IN THE BILL AND WHEN OTHERS ARE NOT THERE AND IT BARELY PASSES BUT IT OUTLAW SLAVE TRADING, AND THEN AFTER THIS, AND THEN THEY SAID THEY WOULD OUTLAW THE SLAVERY. AND THEY DID THIS BEFORE AMERICA. AND THIS HAD AN INFLUENCE ON AMERICA. THIS WAS THE SECOND GREAT AWAKENING.>>HERMAN: WE’VE ONLY GOT FIVE MINUTES.>>GUEST: AND WE HAD THE FIRST GREAT AWAKENING, AND THEN YOU HAD A PREACHER, JAMES MCCLARY, FROM KENTUCKY, AND THEY WERE PRAYING ONE SATURDAY PER MONTH FOR REVIVAL, AND THEY HAD ABOUT 1500 PEOPLE, AND A CATTLE GROWING AND THEY HAD 25,000 PEOPLE, AND THEY ARE CAMPING OUT, IT WOULD BE CALLED THE CAMP MEETING. THEY HAVE NO MICROPHONES. AND THEY WOULD BUILD PLATFORMS, AND THEY WOULD ALL PREACH AT THE SAME TIME. ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND HIS PARENTS WENT TO BE SAVED AND HIS MOTHER WAS A VERY STRONG CHRISTIAN AND THIS SPREADS, OUT OF THE COLLEGES, THERE WAS FRENCH INFIDELITY. THERE WAS THE FRENCH REVOLUTION AS MUCH IMMORALITY, AND THIS WAS HAPPENING ON THE CAMPUSES, AND YOU KNOW THIS IS WHAT WE SEE TODAY ON THE CAMPUSES TODAY, AND BACK THEN THIS WAS FRENCH INFIDELITY. AT YALE, THEY HAD MAYBE 30 OR 40 KIDS IN A CLASS, AND THE PRESIDENT WAS TIMOTHY DWIGHT, THE GRANDSON OF JONATHAN EDWARDS. HE SAT DOWN WITH THE KIDS. AND HE DID NOT STAY IN HIS OFFICE. AND HE LETS THEM TELL ABOUT THEY SAY, AND HE SAYS NOW LISTEN TO ME. AND HE REFUTES THEM THAT HE GIVES THEM THE GOSPEL AND HE BRINGS A REVIVAL, AND EVERYBODY BECOMES OUT OF FIRE FOR THE LORD JESUS AND THIS WOULD BE A LITTLE CHAPEL FOR THE LORD. AND THEY TEACH THE BIBLE. AND THEN THE REVIVAL BEGINS TO SPREAD. AND THIS WAS CALLED THE HAYSTACK PRAYER MEETING. DO WE HAVE TIME?>>HERMAN: THREE MINUTES.>>GUEST: THE KIDS WERE COMING BACK FROM CLASS, IN THIS COLLEGE TOWN, AND THEY CAME ACROSS THE FIELD, AND THEY SAW THE RAIN AND THEY BEGAN TO HIDE UNDER THE RAIN, AND THEY BEGAN TO COMMIT THEIR LIVES TO MISSIONS AND IN THE RAIN QUIT, AND THEY MOVED BACK TO THE CLASS AND THEY TALKED ABOUT THEIR COMMITMENT. AND THEN THERE WAS A REVIVAL THE MISSIONARIES OUT WE WENT TO BURMA, AND THEY WENT OUT AND 1812 AND OVER TO HAWAII. AND THEY REGARDED THE CARIBBEAN.
