The Disturbing Legacy of Charles Finney - Dr. Michael Horton

The Disturbing Legacy of Charles Finney - Dr. Michael Horton

I think this needs to be understood to fully understand the problem with the gospel message taught in churches today that creates mostly false converts. I added the warning in the Keith Green posting that we need to beware of Finney and his message. I was a big fan of Keith Green's ministry in college and I purchased Finney's "Revival Lectures" as recommended by Keith Green. This 'tradition' of evangelicalism needs to be evaluated purely with scripture and chuck out what is not biblical and anti-biblical.

Finney and others are also responsible for the Burned-Over District of central and western New York where their revivalism left people very hardened to a sound gospel message and created the seed bed for a number of cults and false religions. This area produced Mormonism, Church of Christ Scientist, and the precursors for the Jehovah's Witnesses. We have not been learning our lessons when we're not returning to a biblical gospel.
