For years Charles G. Finney has gotten a free ride from evangelical preachers and churches for various reasons, but mostly because few had ever taken the time to read his obtuse books or even try to understand his theology. 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. In fact it is not an exaggeration to say that he was one of the greatest heretic’s of church history! And this is why the current work by Jerry Johnson and NiceneCouncil.com is so valuable—it exposes the reality of Finney’s false and damnable theology.
“The eighteenth-century lawyer-turned-preacher, Charles Finney, impacted American Christianity in ways that have yet to be fully measured. His legacy is still wielding significant influence over modern evangelicalism. This new documentary from www.NiceneCouncil.com examines Finney’s theology and sheds gospel light on some of the more damaging aspects of his teaching.” — Dr. Tom Ascol, Editor, The Founder’s Journal
“If a seminary professor today were to deny total depravity and the necessity of grace for saving faith, and at the same time was fuzzy on the doctrine of justification by faith alone, he would hardly be considered a paragon of evangelical orthodoxy. Yet, such are some of the beliefs of Charles Finney, the man who is considered an expert on revival by far too many evangelicals. I am very thankful for this documentary from Jerry Johnson and www.NiceneCouncil.com that throws light on the strange theology of Charles Finney and raises serious questions about his being a role model for evangelicals of our day.” — Dr. Michael Haykin, Professor of Church History, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“NiceneCouncil.com has done it again: exposing false teachers for the wolves they really are – all for the good of the flock of Christ, that can grow strong upon nothing but the unadulterated truth of the gospel. This is an accurate and much-needed exposé that I would recommend to anyone professing to be an Evangelical believer in modern America.” — Nathan Pitchford, author, What the Bible says about the Doctrines of Grace
