Anabaptists

Zurich city council insisted that all newborn infants be baptized, which was a serious matter since Grebel’s group believed water baptism was not for infants, but for believers only. And now that Grebel’s wife had just given birth to a new baby, what were they to do? The Grebels refused to baptize their baby. Other parents followed suit. Zwingli met secretly with Grebel’s group, hoping to talk them down off the ledge, but to no avail. Then Zwingli wrote an article accusing his own followers of causing rebellion and unrest. On January 17, 1525, the council sided with Zwingli, ordering anyone refusing to have their child baptized to be expelled. Four days later, on January 21, 1525, as Grebel’s group met at Felix Manz’s house, George Blaurock, a former priest, turned to Conrad Grebel and asked him to baptize him. The first adult water baptism was performed, and the first free church (free from state rule) in modern times was born. The Catholic Church called them Anabaptists, meaning “rebaptizers,” to label them as heretics and begin the process of persecution. They resented the title, preferring simply “Baptists.” After all, since the ceremonial sprinkling of infants was unscriptural, theirs was not a rebaptism but the only baptism. In 1526, the Zurich city council released a mandate stating that anyone who rebaptized another did so under penalty of death by drowning. Evidently if these heretics wanted water, they decided to let them have it! In less than two years, Felix Manz, the man in whose house the first Anabaptist meeting took place, became the first Anabaptist martyr. George Blaurock fled east and was burned at the stake. Within four years, between 4,000 and 5,000 of the Swiss Brethren were executed by fire, water, or sword. Others fled to Germany, Austria, or Moravia, where sympathetic and tolerant princes remained. --except from autho Jeff Oliver's book

America's First Great Awakening 1730-40

First Great American Awakening 1730-peaking at 1740s to really into 1770 (as long as George Whitefield lived) A Great Awakening begins with prayer. Entire churches or new churches are birthed being saved and set on fire for Christ. Healings take place though often a wave for repentance that is awe inspiring sweeps the land. There was a five mile ocean perimeter for this Awakening where ships coming into port were swept by this unknown fever to get right with God. Their pleadings for pastors to explain what was happening would end in the entire ship of sailors saved. Another important part of an Awakening is there is such a wave of salvations among the people and leadership that economic, and public policies are changed. In this case, this Awakening would birth a national God first identity and the eight year Revoluationary War and 2 year constitutional convention following would birth a new nation, the United States of America..

While in England he had a million who would gather, in America, what he did unified the colonists into what would prepare them to become one nation.
