A famine was everywhere— “not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of Jehovah.” Thousands of false teachers, many of them occupying high ecclesiastical positions, were bringing in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many were following their pernicious ways, by reason of whom the way of truth was evil spoken of.On the other hand, parallel with the deepening apostasy, and probably actually stimulated by it, there was a widespread revival—not a revival in the sense of great ingathering’s resulting from evangelistic effort, but a revival of interest in, and hunger for, the Word of God. This hunger, I say, was probably stimulated by the apostasy- for what will increase hunger like a famine? The sheep of Christ began to look up to their Shepherd for food, even for “every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Men and women began insistently to ask, “Hath God really spoken? And, if so, what hath He said? What saith the Scriptures?”The World Conference on Fundamentals brought together of the days greatest Bible teachers and preachers like R. A. Torrey, Lewis Sperry Chafer, W. B. Riley, W.H. Griffith Thomas, I.M. Haldeman and William L. Pettingill. Only a few generations have witnessed a moving of the Holy Ghost like what was witnessed in the early twentieth century.
