Adam Greenway, a professor and associate dean at Southern Seminary in Louisville, preached from 2 Chronicles 7:14 at the 2011 Kentucky Baptist Pastors’ Conference.
Kentuckians “have not seen genuine spiritual awakening for 150 years,” said Greenway.
“Many think we’re never going to see revival again because the culture has changed,” he said, speculating that if Jonathan Edwards preached his famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” today, “the church would be shocked and angered.”
The associate dean of Southern’s Billy Graham School of Missions and Evangelism, Greenway said believers must demand purity among themselves for revival to come.
Humility is another component Greenway said is missing in the contemporary church.
“If we make that commitment to be pure and holy people before the Lord God (He) promises that He will send revival.”
