Fundamentalism | LLOYD STREETER
Your Second Gentleman, Dr. Harold Ockenga, pastor of Park Street Church of Boston, wrote the platform on which you stand.
He says that the "new evangelicalism differs from fundamentalism in its willingness to handle the social problems which the fundamentalists evaded. He says that the "new evangelical believes that Christianity is intellectually defensible, but the Christian cannot be obscurantist in scientific questions pertaining to the creation, age of man, the universality of the flood, and other debatable Bible questions. He says that "the new evangelicalism is willing to face the intellectual problems and meet them in the framework of modern learning."

Through Waters Deep - Tour of Boston, Part 2
From 1936-1969, Dr. Harold J. Ockenga served as pastor of Park Street.
In the first part of the twentieth century, the rise of secularism in mainline churches led to the rise of fundamentalism, with its call to separate from the culture. In response, Ockenga and others gave rise to the modern evangelical movement, which kept fundamentalism's stand for theological truth, while rejecting its trend toward isolation from culture. In 1942, the National Association of Evangelicals was formed, with Ockenga as president. Sanctuary of Park Street Church, Boston (Photo: Sarah Sundin, July 2014) On May 30, 1943, Dr. Ockenga began an outdoor evangelical ministry on Boston Common. At the first service, 3500 servicemen and civilians enjoyed music and teaching, and many came to Christ. The services continued through that summer and the next, until opponents caused the city to cancel the permit. Not to be silenced, Ockenga continued conducting the services from the church steps, and later from the "Mayflower Pulpit" on the side of the church-across the street from Boston Common.
Chronology of Major Movements - Introduction
J. Edwin Orr and Harold Ockenga, associates of Henrietta Mears who was the principle organizer of the World Christian Movement, also wrested the Scriptures to accommodate a Latter Rain revival at the close of the Church age.
"Now, more than ever, [Harold] Ockenga pleaded America needed revival showers of blessing. Prophecies in the books of Hosea 6, Joel 2, and Peter's sermon on the day of Pentecost in Acts 3 [sic], pointed to one last revival before 'the great holocaust of judgment falls upon the earth.' The revival now breaking, Ockenga speculated, 'may be the revival of the last time. It may be that God is now taking out his elect...before the awful wrath of God will be loosed in the atomic warfare of this day.' This was the kind of Biblical interpretation that would make most of the scholars at Fuller Seminary cringe in embarrassment for their president, yet it spoke to a pervasive feeling rippling through the evangelical network nationwide that these were extraordinary times. [ Carpenter 229-30 ] "...Harold Ockenga, President of Gordon College and pastor of Park Street Church in Boston...was instrumental in forming the National Association of Evangelicals (N.A.E.). As a very close friend of Charles Fuller, he met with Fuller in Chicago to assist him in developing the plan for Fuller Evangelical Seminary. As a result, Ockenga became the first President of Fuller Evangelical Seminary. Both taught the young people at Mears's Forest Home Christian Conference Center. [ Dager: WCM ] Orr and Ockenga had forgotten the warning of Hebrews 6:4-6 which states there is no revival for those who fall away:
