After thousands of Auburn University students gathered to worship and be baptized last week during the “Unite Auburn” event at Neville Arena, people across the nation have been asking if revival may be breaking out on The Plains.
Jonathon Pokluda, lead pastor of Harris Creek Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, and Auburn student Michael Floyd joined Fox News Channel's Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday to give their perspective on the event and the movement going on on college campuses.
“I've had a front-row seat of God moving through young adults and college students on these campuses. There’s a work that he’s doing,” Pokluda said. “There’s a remnant of people who are saying, ‘Hey, I’m not interested in vaping. I’m not interested in smoking weed, getting high, doing drugs, having sex. I want to live for something more than that. I want to live for forever. I believe there’s a God, and I believe he has a purpose in my life. I believe he gave his son Jesus to die for my sins, and so I want to live by his spirit.’ And that’s what we’re seeing, and that’s what we saw at Auburn last Tuesday.”
Floyd agreed with the pastor that students want more out of life than secular society offers and said they are growing bold in living out their Christian faith.
“It lets people know that college students are unapologetic about their worship and seeking Christ and that we’re rising up to take a stand for the Kingdom of God and to see, ‘Hey, it’s time to be about our Father’s business,’” Floyd said. “...It just goes to show you that people are wanting God more, and that’s a good thing for this great country.”
