Steven Lawson was talking about the life and ministry of George Whitefield on todays RYM. This sparked my interest in this preacher whom would put so many modern leaders to shame. Also the level of humility Whitefield had was astounding. Today you have people like Hank Hanagraaf, Mark Driscoll, among others trying to be stars and treating ministry like Hollywood and they think of themselves as celebrities. This was not the attitude of Whitefield by any means. https://www.ligonier.org/rym/offer/ Anyone studied this man? I know Comfort often quotes from him, and I probably studied him in seminary in History of Preachers as we read in full the book (The Company of the Preachers: A History of Biblical Preaching from the Old Testament to the Modern Era Hardcover) but I can't remember. Lawson told of times that people would toss dead cats at Whitefield while he was preaching. Are you serious???? Are you serious??? What sane person would do such a thing of all the germs and diseases that the animal carries when dead. In those days you get a disease and you are probably toast, while today you may just get really sick, but you will survive. But I mean the level of persecution puts all of us to shame this man experienced!!!
