TRUE or FALSE?
The last several decades witnessed tremendous evangelical influence in the United States. Leaders such as Billy Graham, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Tim and Beverly LaHaye, Paige and Dorothy Patterson, James Dobson, and James and Betty Robison made a bold impact on America’s families, churches and government. Now that those few leaders are aging or retiring, or have died, there are very few traditional evangelical leaders left holding the torch and even fewer candidates to whom they can pass it.

TRUE!!

True. We are witnessing a shift from big time leaders to individual evangelism, something that should have been happening all along. We are all called to share the Gospel of the Kingdom.

In the book God Is Alive and Well: The Future of Religion in America, Gallup Inc. Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport ensures: “Christianity will prevail in the U.S. America will remain very much a Christian nation in the decades ahead, albeit less so than in the past because of an increase in Americans who don’t have a religious identity.” Do you agree?

The rise of individual evangelism means the church will be going underground. Persecution and martyrdom stimulate the church to grow because it will be running on the power of the Holy Spirit and not man’s plans and technology.

I think to a large degree this is true, but there are a lot of underlying reasons.

False, It is not the men, the leaders it is the person of the Holy Spirit. Historically revivals do not die with a leader, they just bcome a luke warm denomination….

    Godliness will show forth more radiantly at the same time evil grows darker, more bold and vile.

    It’s true that the evangelicals you mentioned above have had strong influence over the last half century. But all that influence has not been good and truthful. Take Jerry Falwell who sold over 100,000 tapes that was supposed to prove that President Clinton had plotted the murder of people in Arkansas, a major investigation ended up saying that we might as well blame the murders on Abe Lincoln. Yet Falwell took in millions and poisoned lots of minds, minds that are still poisoned. Wonder how the scales of heaven will be balanced out over that?

    Gas during Clinton was 53 cent a gallon in Georgia. How about after him?

      Troy Day I believe that is confirmation of multiple prophetic words the last few years that the days of the big name evangelists are pretty much over, and that in this new season, God will be using thousands of ordinary, nameless/faceless (publicly unknown) believers filled with the spirit to carry on even more effectively with the advent of modern technology.
