The Skeleton in the Closet

airo: “One of the main reasons for the resurgence of Pelagianism today is the ministry of Charles Finney. Many call him America’s greatest revivalist.

Many supposedly came to Christ under him, and that was enough to convince the multitudes that he must be sound and Biblical. But now a number of writers and theologians are opening the door to his theology, and many are shocked to see what he truly believed – Charles G. Finney was clearly and undeniably a heretic – he did not preach nor teach the true gospel, as set forth in the Scriptures.
