Merry Christmas!!! Hey I luv the way this VIDEO is sync-ed with this song!!

Merry Christmas, this is the Day, that we choose to accept as Christ's Birthday, we know that Jesus wasn't actually born in December, many argue about the actual date, some say April others even say July. Truthfully, it doesn't matter, we can get all legalistic about it, or even religious, however, the point is simply this, Christ was a GIFT to humanity, (not all, but that is a different topic, ha ha) The day HE was born is a pivotal mark for believers, it is the day that God sent HIS SON, to earth to begin HIS human mission to redeem MAN from his fallen state, the truth of the matter is this: ONLY GOD COULD HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SUCH A TASK AS THIS!!! So for those of you who say, "aah, Jesus wasn't God, HE was just a man, a good man for the at matter, and Christmas is just a day to enjoy family and friends...", well I have some news for you, the origin of Christmas is simply based on the Birth of the greatest MAN to walk the Earth, God Incarnate Himself, JESUS The CHRIST!!! So celebrate without Christ in your Christmas, but truthfully Christmas without CHRIST is just another day, nothing special about it! PERIOD!

Like the prophesy in the OT states in
Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

Now a for little treat, Peep this song:

Song - Ima Christian
Artist - HeeSun Lee, Seda, K-Drama & Ruslan (of theBreax)

Whats good? A little observation concerning Jin the MC, who happens to be a "Christian".

I say in my title "Jin...who is a "Christian"", very loosely. There is a sorta fascination with celebrities who convert to Christianity, and honestly I am weary of these events. You may ask "Why are you so critical, judgmental, and/or concerned, Les?" To be honest, I really dont know how these converted privileged "Christians" live, I am not judging that at all, what I can judge is what is presented to me through the Media, which isnt a great source in the first place. However, with blogs, videos (YouTube) and internet resources we have a means to see more than what the media shows us. Which brings me to the subject of today's Blog, JIN the MC. I dont know if and any of you know who Jin is, this is a link to a description from wikipedia, which isnt a great source but this info is confirmed: >>>Click Here

Anyways, back to my post, the reason I'm blogging, answering the "Why?" portion of your question , why Jin? Here it goes, Jin released a song and video claiming Christ, first the song right here:

So naturally I hear this, and I get excited, because Jin with all respect is a sick MC, I figured that this guy with the right guidance, discipleship and leadership can be an instrumental tool for the KINGDOM!

So then, He releases this video:

After watching this video it excites me even further, seems very sincere, and now Im believing that he is truly converted. He does an interview with <<Click Here

So, a week or so later Jin drops this remix of a popular song by Drake, though I dont know the first thing about Drake, I hear he is the "next big thing" the name of the son is "The Best" listen here>>>

So now, Im stoked, though the song isnt the "best" Theological or Doctrinal, I see hope in Jin, and hopefully he hooks up with the right people, nah mean. I know that Flame has reached out tho him, I also am aware of other sound rappers and producers who have made contact with Jin.

Now, bring me to the latest concerning this progress, Jin releases a video a few days ago, Im not too sure about the details but accepts or challenges these freestyle battle mc's to a battle mid November in California. Here's the video:

So this is why, I mainly posted this blog today, is it possible to Battle and be a Christian? When you view the video, you get this sense of "cockiness" and "arrogance" from Jin, is that Christ-Like? I understand that this is the nature battling, but does this justify it? I mean is it safe to say that by saying he wants to battle two dudes on the same day, you assume that he is saying that whomever he battles first already caught the L? I know that Jin knows what to expect, and he may have a plan. I just hope he doesnt disappoint us, me? Im just tired of the likes such as Ma$e, DMX, KRS-ONE, R-Kelly, CoCo, and these other so called Christians who claim to follow Christ but their fruit as we see it says otherwise.

Jin, I am truly praying for you, I hope your conversion is genuine, dont compromise and remember to always seek HIS kingdom first, and all else shall follow.

Thank you for reading.

1 Video and 1 song I'm digging, "Lost" and "Holy is HE"!

This right here is Da T.R.U.T.H.'s video for the song "LOST" hot, I like this joint right here!!

Now we got a response track, if you know Evangel, you know he isnt doing this for clout, fame or any hidden agendas. He is simply responding to Rakim's track "Holy are you", where Rakim is basically blaspheming throughout the whole song, and claiming god stature! Check this out, Im gonna post Rakim's version too, just for comparison purposes, though Im very hesitant to, forgive me if it offends anyone, but I feel it necessary to prove a point, and of course, in defense of the FAITH!!!

Here is Rakim's original, sorry once again!

Aight see later in the week! Holy are YOU, LORD GOD, LORD JESUS, LORD HOLY SPIRIT!! All GLORY TO YOU!!

In Memory of ENOCK RIP!!! Juan James we will miss your Gifting! But we shall see you again!! Hallelujah!!

In Memory of former CrossMovement Member Enock AKA Juan James. I will be posting various videos and songs where he is featured, this death hits me hard, he died on Saturday, from a unconfirmed Heart Attack, he was 35 years old, like me!!! I remember meeting Enock back 1998 or so, when he came to Fordham Manor Church in the Bronx, my home church at the time, and I have to honestly say that from all of the CrossMovement members which included Ambassador, Tonic, Cruz Cordero, TRU Life, Earthquake and Enock, the most memorable encounter was with Enock. Enock leaves behind a family, and many friends. You will be missed my brother, but the HOPE we have is that we shall meet again, so in a sense it is a celebration cause you with the Father, but its still shocking! Bruh, holla atcha later!!

Yesterday was the Annual Hip Hop/Rap Event in the Bronx RapFest 2009. I had a great time of fellowship, music and family!! I got to meet many Brethren of the Faith, and also reconnect with many that I haven't seen in a long while!! The highlight of the day for me was meeting Timothy Brindle and Hazakim. I actually met with Hazakim the day prior at the airport, I was their ride, we hung out and they were truly a blessing to hang with!! Before I went to pick them up I had a car accident, not my fault at all, my car was totalled not exactly, but it was immobile!! Here are a few pictures from the event. To my Brother Brindle, it was truly a pleasure meeting you and hopefully in the future we can build!!

Heaven for a Murderer? Is this Unconditional Election?

This story is crazy, we see here how a person can be misconstrued by Unsound Biblical Teaching! Though some of his points and perspective was partially true, he misunderstood these doctrinal truths that are at the core of Christianity! Here is the article and my critic!

The frustrated loner who murdered three women at a suburban Pittsburgh gym before killing himself wrote a vile journal that revealed he planned the massacre for months - and "chickened out" on his first try.

Suicidal suspect George Sodini complained he'd had "no sex since July 1990" and blamed his parents, his siblings - even his preacher - for the fact that "girls and women don't even give me a second look ANYWHERE."

He placed a date of death - Aug. 4 - atop his Web site. He made it clear he didn't care who read his words.

"I will not be embarrassed [sic], because, well, I will be dead," he wrote in his final entry Friday. "Death lives!"

On Tuesday, Sodini strolled into an LA Fitness gym with four guns in a duffle bag and headed for a room where an aerobics class was underway.

Sodini pulled out two guns, both bought legally. Then he flipped off the lights and started shooting, police said.

Cops said he fired 35 times before turning a .45-caliber revolver on himself.

When it was over, three women were dead, nine others were injured and yet another disturbed gunman had etched his name in blood in the annals of American crime.

"He had no relationship with anyone at the club that we know of," local police Superintendent Charles Moffatt said. "He was hell bent on doing what he did."

Sodini's words confirm that. "Why do this? To young girls?" began his 4,610-word journal. "Just read below."

Sodini's first entry on Nov. 5, 2008, was a racist rant about President Obama and black men. The seeds of slaughter were sown in subsequent entries, where he complained about not having had a girlfriend "since 1984."

"Who knows why," he wrote. "I am not too ugly or too weird."

Sodini dismissed his dad as a "useless sperm donor." He raged against his "useless bully" brother. He called his mother "The Central Boss." He blasted his former pastor.

"This guy teaches (and convinced me) you can commit mass murder then still go to heaven," Sodini wrote.
***(My Note)***
Unconditional Election, this raises an absurd thinking on the truth that God chooses and elects, this man believed no matter what he does he can inherit eternity with God, was the murderer wrong or was his Pastor teaching a loose interpretation of Unconditional Election or justification???***

A software developer for a Pittsburgh law firm, Sodini also ripped a colleague, writing that the "worst people by far are the religious types."
***(My Note)***
I Agree, no comment***

Sodini first tried to commit mass murder at the gym on Jan. 6 but lost his nerve. He wrote about trying to calm himself by drinking or getting high.

"I just need to use common sense, can't drink and drive etc.," he wrote.

Then, on May 18, Sodini wrote that he "actually had a date today" with a woman he met on the bus. And yet, in the same entry, Sodini wrote he was "TOTALLY ALONE."

In his final hours, Sodini added to his site the name of a woman who "had my baby in early 1991." She appears to have died five years ago.

Addressing his readers, Sodini concluded, "Maybe all this will shed insight on why some people just cannot make things happen in their life."

This is definitely a slap against the ever so increasing Reformed Movement, The Church!

Rainbows: A breath of fresh air!

With everything that is happening in this world, from secular to Christian to whatever, sometime I just need need to step back and realize that I owe Him, God, everything I have, do and don't! Life can many times be hectic, I for one surely know that, it happens to be that it has been raining quite a lot this year, and for the first time year I caught a rainbow, they arent too common, at least that I know of, out here that is. Anyways, just wanted to jot this down in the midst of chaos and falls!

C'Ya Lays

Rainbows always remind me of God
and His promise to Noah. Thank you
Lord! Forgive me!

Read the verses below!

Genesis 9: 8-17
8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, 9 “Behold, ch. 6:18; 8:20–22

">zI establish my covenant with you and your offspring after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the livestock, and every beast of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark; it is for every beast of the earth. 11 Isa. 54:9, 10

">aI establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12 And God said, ch. 17:11

">b“This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set Ezek. 1:28; [Rev. 4:3; 10:1]

">cmy bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 [Lev. 26:42, 45; 1 Kgs. 8:23; Ezek. 16:60]

">dI will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember ch. 17:7, 13, 19

">ethe everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”

KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- A Sevier County man is suing his former church in South Knoxville, after he claims he was overcome by the spirit, fell backward and hit his head.

Voddie Baucham's daughter on the death of the doctor who performed abortions with no regret, very good posting on her part, please it in it's entirety, follow the link to her Blog!!

The Death of a Doctor

My driving lessons are progressing nicely. Today, I drove to my eye appointment (got some new contact lenses, and went through the embarrassment of being unable to see the big "E" on the eye chart without my glasses) and back home again, making a stop at Walgreens ~I feel very accomplished, a fuzzy glow somewhat akin to the ecstasy a young child feels the first time she ties her shoes or writes her name. ;-)
Read the rest here...

Thirdly and lastly...

This one is sad, upsetting and disturbing...



Read the proclamation here...

What is the Gospel?

In a nutshell, here it goes...

Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, came down from heaven to become a human being. His mission - to take care of the greatest need men have - to save them from the wrath of God. He did this by His perfect life, death and resurrection from the grave. He offers this salvation freely to every man - by commanding them to repent of their sins and believe into/upon Him as their only hope for salvation from that wrath.

Could Rob Bell have said that? I don't think so! Could he have been more ambiguous?? Of Course this whole Emergent Movement survives off Ambiguity!!

This is what I'm referring to >>> Read this Interview with Rob Bell!

Another day in the life of PAE!

Follow up to yesterdays post...

Perez is an idiot, Dr.White is right on!!

The following is a Blog posting from Voddie Baucham (who by the way is an awesome preacher) on the same isuue, read on...

Homosexual Marriage Agenda Infects Miss USA Pageant

Miss California, Carrie Prejean, walked into a trap set by homosexual marriage advocate Perez Hilton during the Miss USA Pageant. According to a report by the Daily Mail, Hilton, enraged by Prejean’s intolerance, called Prejean a “dumb b@*#h”. He went on to “describe [her] as having 'half a brain.' and said he would have stormed on the stage and ripped off her tiara if she had won.” Of course his actions would have fallen within the confines of the tolerance regime of the homosexual marriage movement because those who reject homosexual marriage are disqualified, and thus fair game for any acts of intolerance, discrimination, or even violence.

Let me say that I am no fan of the Miss USA Pageant (or beauty pageants in general). However, I think it is very important to see where all of this is going. According to people “in-the-know” Prejean, who was one of the favorites in the competition, ruined any chance of winning the crown when she failed to give the politically correct answer to Hilton’s question. Of course, the more fundamental question is why was HIlton there in the first place? What does a homosexual blogger have to do with a beauty pageant? He doesn’t even like girls. Supposedly, he is not attracted to women at all. What was he judging? Miss USA (unlike the Miss America pageant) has no “talent” portion of the competition. This pageant is pure soft porn sexploitation. So why was he there? Simple. He was there as a nod to the homosexual movement. He was there because when the homosexual community sneezes the entertainment industry catches a cold.

Prejean’s answer was cumbersome at best, but the gist of it was clear (you try giving a defense of marriage on the spot in front of lights, cameras, and thousands of people staring at your cleavage and legs through your provocative ball gown and trying their best to recall the mental image of your all-but-naked body gliding across the stage in the swimsuit segment of the competition):

'Well, I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage.'

She continued: 'And you know what, in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.

'No offence to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be between a man and a woman. Thank you very much.'

Nevertheless, she got her point across, and Hilton was none too pleased. Unfortunately, anyone who works in corporate America (or the school system, or the government, etc., etc., etc.) knows this story all too well. Give the wrong answer on the homosexual marriage issue and there’s hell to pay. And of course, “hell hath no fury like a [LGBTQ] scorned.”


Disclaimer by Voddie:
For those of you who have been wondering why I’ve written so many posts on the homosexual marriage issue, allow me to explain. 1) This is a pivotal issue in the forefront of our current cultural debate, 2) the homosexual agenda has piggybacked on the Civil Rights movement and is using the black community as cover, thus requiring a response from black writers, thinkers and preachers who have not bought the lie, and 3) I am working on a book on the subject and have been overwhelmed by the avalanche of headline material. This issue truly is ubiquitous.

--End of Voddie's Post--

Ima repeat what I said before Perez you are an IDIOT!!! I truly hope God will have mercy on you and therefore grant you the gift of repentance!!

Our World Fallen!

First off, I dont agree with everything these pageants stand for, however I do applaud this contestant for her stance and convictions.

With that said, its interesting the direction this world is going into, with Patterson on the verge of getting what he wants for same sex marriage here in NY, to a President with the same agenda, even though he said otherwise through the campaigning, interesting time ahead particularly for us Believers of Jesus Christ!!

And for the record, I believe marriage is between one man and one woman, and nothing else! If I offend you by my statement, dont ask me if I care cause I dont!


Coming soon The Death of Humanity!

A popular book...

This is a bit outdated, however relevant because this book (The Shack) continues to be a "Best-Seller" and by all means false in its presentation of the TRINITY! Therefore heretical in nature and intent.

My Pastor Bob Gianserra wrote a brief article in his BLOG concerning this book, and there is a video that further explains the falicy of this so called "fictional" book.

This book has infiltrated the Church BIG TIME, I cant believe how many "Christians" that I know own and love this book, but for the sake of a lack of knowledge many are being deceived!! I cannot stress the importance of studying, SCRIPTURE itself urges us to rightly divide the WORD of TRUTH!

2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,That is, one approved after being tested a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

But hey, supposedly I'm the one that's wrong and the majority is right, hence the idea that the majority can't be wrong, right? Sorry to burst bubbles but, that statement is truly wrong, remember narrow is the path to eternal salvation and broad is the road to destruction!

Matthew 7:13 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy is the way that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

We love to read many and many a books concerning "spiritual matters" but we hate to consider whether they are truly in line with Scripture, and the moment we point out errors we, excuse me in my case, me, I am being "judgmental" just because I compare and test everything to see if its in line, therefore I'm judgmental and critical, you know what I rather be safe then sorry. So when it comes to false teachers, preachers and ____________ (fill in the blank) I pass cause God has given us the ability to rationalize and to rightly divide His WORD!! So Mr. Bentley, Mr. Joyner, Mr. Hinn, Mr. Jakes, Mr. Pearson, Mrs. King, Mr. Jones later for ya, I pray that my Lord will have mercy on your soul, but as for me, I pass on ALL your heresy ya aint got nothing for me and my house!

So here's the link for my Pastor's BLOG!

Hey its time to drop the HAMMER!

Matthew 24:21-25

21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. 22 And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. 23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

Culprit number 1

Watch this video of this so called "prophet" and his guise at "ministry"

Remember his claims:
* To Have Eaten From The Tree Of Life
* That Jesus Is Just An Angel Named “Wisdom”
* That He Has Spoken To The Dead
* That He Has More Power Than Any Of The Biblical Apostles
* That He Currently Has The Apostle Paul’s Apostolic Mantle

Now dont take my word for it, but like Scriptures advises us test everything through Scripture, if you have an issue HOLLA!

Culprit number 2

Bob Jones

Another self proclaimed "prophet', honestly these guys dont even deserve the capital P! For real! Peep it!

Heretics at their finest!

Listen if you call yourself a Christian and hold dear to these character, I would seriously, and I mean seriously question your relationship with GOD, use discernment, read your WORD, compare everything, and if anything these guys are saying doesnt line up> TOSS IT! Cause its garbage!

C'ya later!

Charles Finney: the Heretic!! Pt 2

Here's the end of the prior article I posted concerning Charles "The Heretic" Finney!

But if you want to read the first part of this series CLICK HERE!!

CON'T Part 2
We will return to Finney's doctrine of justification, but it must be noted that it rests upon a denial of the doctrine of original sin. Held by both Roman Catholics and Protestants, this biblical teaching insists that we are all born into this world inheriting Adam's guilt and corruption. We are, therefore, in bondage to a sinful nature. As someone has said, 'We sin because we're sinners': the condition of sin determines the acts of sin, rather than vice versa. But Finney followed Pelagius, the 5th-century heretic, who was condemned by more church councils than any other person in church history, in denying this doctrine.

Instead, Finney believed that human beings were capable of choosing whether they would be corrupt by nature or redeemed, referring to original sin as an 'anti-scriptural and nonsensical dogma' (p. 179). In clear terms, Finney denied the notion that human beings possess a sinful nature (ibid.). Therefore, if Adam leads us into sin, not by our inheriting his guilt and corruption, but by following his poor example, this leads logically to the view of Christ, the Second Adam, as saving by example. This is precisely where Finney takes it, in his explanation of the atonement.

The first thing we must note about the atonement, Finney says, is that Christ could not have died for anyone else's sins than his own. His obedience to the law and his perfect righteousness were sufficient to save him, but could not legally be accepted on behalf of others. That Finney's whole theology is driven by a passion for moral improvement is seen on this very point: 'If he [Christ] had obeyed the Law as our substitute, then why should our own return to personal obedience be insisted upon as a sine qua non of our salvation?' (p. 206). In other words, why would God insist that we save ourselves by our own obedience if Christ's work was sufficient? The reader should recall the words of St. Paul in this regard, 'I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.' It would seem that Finney's reply is one of agreement. The difference is, he has no difficulty believing both of those premises.

That is not entirely fair, of course, because Finney did believe that Christ died for something--not for someone--but for something. In other words, he died for a purpose, but not for people. The purpose of that death was to reassert God's moral government and to lead us to eternal life by example, as Adam's example excited us to sin. Why did Christ die? God knew that 'The atonement would present to creatures the highest possible motives to virtue. Example is the highest moral influence that can be exerted...If the benevolence manifested in the atonement does not subdue the selfishness of sinners, their case is hopeless' (p. 209). Therefore, we are not helpless sinners who need to be redeemed, but wayward sinners who need a demonstration of selflessness so moving that we will be excited to leave off selfishness. Not only did Finney believe that the 'moral influence' theory of the atonement was the chief way of understanding the cross; he explicitly denied the substitutionary atonement, which '...assumes that the atonement was a literal payment of a debt, which we have seen does not consist with the nature of the atonement...It is true, that the atonement, of itself, does not secure the salvation of anyone' (p. 217).

Then there is the matter of applying redemption. Throwing off the Calvinistic orthodoxy of the older Presbyterians and Congregationalists, Finney argued strenuously against the belief that the new birth is a divine gift, insisting that 'regeneration consists in the sinner changing his ultimate choice, intention, preference; or in changing from selfishness to love or benevolence,' as moved by the moral influence of Christ's moving example (p. 224). 'Original or constitutional sinfulness, physical regeneration, and all their kindred and resulting dogmas, are alike subversive of the gospel, and repulsive to the human intelligence' (p. 236).

Having nothing to do with original sin, a substitutionary atonement, and the supernatural character of the new birth, Finney proceeds to attack 'the article by which the church stands or falls'--justification by grace alone through faith alone.

The Protestant Reformers insisted, on the basis of clear biblical texts, that justification (in the Greek,'to declare righteous,' rather than 'to make righteous') was a forensic (i.e., 'legal') verdict. In other words, whereas Rome maintained that justification was a process of making a bad person better, the Reformers argued that it was a declaration or pronouncement that had someone else's righteousness (i.e., Christ's) as its basis. Therefore, it was a perfect, once-and-for-all verdict of right-standing at the beginning of the Christian life, not in the middle or at the end.

The key words in the evangelical doctrine are 'forensic' (meaning 'legal') and 'imputation' (crediting one's account, as opposed to the idea of 'infusion' of a righteousness within a person's soul). Knowing all of this, Finney declares,
But for sinners to be forensically pronounced just, is impossible and absurd...As we shall see, there are many conditions, while there is but one ground, of the justification of sinners...As has already been said, there can be no justification in a legal or forensic sense, but upon the ground of universal, perfect, and uninterrupted obedience to law. This is of course denied by those who hold that gospel justification, or the justification of penitent sinners, is of the nature of a forensic or judicial justification. They hold to the legal maxim that what a man does by another he does by himself, and therefore the law regards Christ's obedience as ours, on the ground that he obeyed for us.
To this, Finney replies:
The doctrine of an imputed righteousness, or that Christ's obedience to the law was accounted as our obedience, is founded on a most false and nonsensical assumption.' After all, Christ's righteousness 'could do no more than justify himself. It can never be imputed to us...It was naturally impossible, then, for him to obey in our behalf.' This 'representing of the atonement as the ground of the sinner's justification has been a sad occasion of stumbling to many' (pp. 320-322).
The view that faith is the sole condition of justification is 'the antinomian view,' Finney asserts. 'We shall see that perseverance in obedience to the end of life is also a condition of justification.' Furthermore, 'present sanctification, in the sense of present full consecration to God, is another condition...of justification. Some theologians have made justification a condition of sanctification, instead of making sanctification a condition of justification. But this we shall see is an erroneous view of the subject' (pp. 326-327). Each act of sin requires 'a fresh justification' (p. 331). Referring to 'the framers of the Westminster Confession of faith,' and their view of an imputed righteousness, Finney wonders, 'If this is not antinomianism, I know not what is' (p. 332). This legal business is unreasonable to Finney, so he concludes, 'I regard these dogmas as fabulous, and better befitting a romance than a system of theology' (p. 333). He concludes in this section against the Westminster Assembly:
The relations of the old school view of justification to their view of depravity is obvious. They hold, as we have seen, that the constitution in every faculty and part is sinful. Of course, a return to personal, present holiness, in the sense of entire conformity to the law, cannot with them be a condition of justification. They must have a justification while yet at least in some degree of sin. This must be brought about by imputed righteousness. The intellect revolts at a justification in sin. So a scheme is devised to divert the eye of the law and of the lawgiver from the sinner to his substitute, who has perfectly obeyed the law (p. 339).
This he calls 'another gospel.' Insisting that Paul's rather realistic account of the Christian life in Romans 7 actually refers to the apostle's life before he had experienced 'entire sanctification,' Finney surpasses Wesley in arguing for the possibility of complete holiness in this life. John Wesley maintained that it is possible for a believer to attain full sanctification, but when he recognized that even the holiest Christians sin, he accommodated his theology to this simple empirical fact. He did this by saying that this experience of 'Christian perfection' was a matter of the heart, not of actions. In other words, a Christian may be perfected in love, so that love is now the sole motivation for one's actions, while occasionally making mistakes. Finney rejects this view and insists that justification is conditioned on complete and total perfection--that is, 'conformity to the law of God entire,' and not only is the believer capable of this; when he or she transgresses at any point, a fresh justification is required.

As the Princeton theologian B. B. Warfield pointed out so eloquently, there are two religions throughout history: Heathenism--of which Pelagianism is a religious expression--and supernatural redemption. And with Warfield and those who so seriously warned their brothers and sisters of these errors among Finney and his successors, we too must come to terms with the wildly heterodox strain in American Protestantism. With roots in Finney's revivalism, perhaps evangelical and liberal Protestantism are not that far apart after all. His 'New Measures,' like today's church growth movement, made human choices and emotions the center of the church's ministry, ridiculed theology, and replaced the preaching of Christ with the preaching of conversion.

It is upon Finney's naturalistic moralism that the Christian political and social crusades build their faith in humanity and its resources in self-salvation. Sounding not a little like a deist, Finney declared, 'There is nothing in religion beyond the ordinary powers of nature. It consists entirely in the right exercise of the powers of nature. It is just that, and nothing else. When mankind becomes truly religious, they are not enabled to put forth exertions which they were unable before to put forth. They only exert powers which they had before, in a different way, and use them for the glory of God' (emphasis in original). Thus, as the new birth is a natural phenomenon, so too a revival: 'A revival is not a miracle, nor dependent on a miracle, in any sense. It is a purely philosophical result of the right use of the constituted means--as much so as any other effect produced by the application of means.' The belief that the new birth and revival depend necessarily on divine activity is pernicious. 'No doctrine,' he says, 'is more dangerous than this to the prosperity of the Church, and nothing more absurd' (Revivals of Religion [Revell], pp. 4-5). When the leaders of the church growth movement claim that theology gets in the way of growth and insist that it does not matter what a particular church believes: growth is a matter of following the proper principles, they are displaying their debt to Finney. When leaders of the Vineyard movement praise this sub-Christian enterprise and the barking, roaring, screaming, laughing, and other strange phenomena on the basis that 'it works' and one must judge its truth by its fruit, they are following Finney, as well as the father of American pragmatism, William James, who declared that truth must be judged on the basis of 'its cash-value in experiential terms.'

Thus, in Finney's theology, God is not sovereign; man is not a sinner by nature; the atonement is not a true payment for sin; justification by imputation is insulting to reason and morality; the new birth is simply the effect of successful techniques, and revival is a natural result of clever campaigns. In his fresh introduction to the bicentennial edition of Finney's Systematic Theology, Harry Conn commends Finney's pragmatism: 'Many servants of our Lord should be diligently searching for a gospel that 'works,' and I am happy to state they can find it in this volume.' As Whitney R. Cross has carefully documented in The Burned-Over District: The Social and Intellectual History of Enthusiastic Religion in Western New York, 1800-1850 (Cornell University Press, 1950), the stretch of territory in which Finney's revivals were most frequent was also the cradle of the perfectionistic cults that plagued that century. A gospel that 'works' for zealous perfectionists one moment merely creates tomorrow's disillusioned and spent super-saints.

Needless to say, Finney's message is radically different from the evangelical faith, as is the basic orientation of the movements we see around us today the bear his imprint: revivalism (or its modern label, 'the church growth movement'), Pentecostal perfectionism and emotionalism, political triumphalism based on the ideal of 'Christian America,' and the anti-intellectual, anti-doctrinal tendencies of American evangelicalism and fundamentalism. It was through the 'Higher Life Movement' of the late 19th and early 20th centuries that Finney's perfectionism came to dominate the fledgling Dispensationalist movement through the auspices of Lewis Sperry Chafer, founder of Dallas Seminary and author of He That Is Spiritual. Finney, of course, is not solely responsible; he is more a product than a producer. Nevertheless, the influence he exercised and continues to exercise to this day is pervasive.

Not only did the revivalist abandon the material principle of the Reformation (justification), making him a renegade against evangelical Christianity; he repudiated doctrines, such as original sin and the substitutionary atonement, that have been embraced by Roman Catholics and Protestants alike. Therefore, Finney is not merely an Arminian, but a Pelagian. He is not only an enemy of evangelical Protestantism, but of historic Christianity of the broadest sort.

I do not point these things out with relish, as if to cheerfully denounce the heroes of American evangelicals. Nevertheless, it is always best, when one has lost something valuable, to retrace one's steps in order to determine when and where one last had it in his or her possession. That is the purpose of this exercise, to face with some honesty the serious departure from biblical Christianity that occurred through American revivalism. For until we address this shift, we will perpetuate a distorted and dangerous course. Of one thing Finney was absolutely correct: The Gospel held by the Westminster divines whom he attacked directly, and indeed held by the whole company of evangelicals, is 'another gospel' in distinction from the one proclaimed by Charles Finney. The question of our moment is, With which gospel will we side?

Unless otherwise specified, all quotes are from Charles G. Finney, Finney's Systematic Theology (Bethany, 1976).

Im simply gonna entitle this entry "Charles Finney: The Heretic!"

I know not too many people would appreciate this entry, but truthfully and with all sincerity- WHO CARES! Im not saved to please mankind, or play the "I gotta be sensitive card" If you know me you know that I dont have hair on my tongue, and I can care less about ruffling feathers, or rubbing someone the wrong way. I dont post so that you or anyone can "like" me, I post out of the conviction of my heart, and right now I wanna tell you about:


Michael S. Horton wrote an awesome article on Finney, I will be breaking his paper into various portions and posting them throughout the week.

Read cause if you got Charismatic, Pentecostal, or mainstream Christian background, you are going to appreciate the truths said here! Not only that but Finney initiated a lot of the practices that are exercised today in modern Christian Churches, that you need to see where, why, and how these practices came to be.

The Legacy of Charles Finney by Michael S. Horton

Jerry Falwell calls him 'one of my heroes and a hero to many evangelicals, including Billy Graham.' I recall wandering through the Billy Graham Center some years ago, observing the place of honor given to Finney in the evangelical tradition, reinforced by the first class in theology I had at a Christian college, where Finney's work was required reading. The New York revivalist was the oft-quoted and celebrated champion of the Christian singer Keith Green and the Youth With A Mission organization. Finney is particularly esteemed among the leaders of the Christian Right and the Christian Left, by both Jerry Falwell and Jim Wallis (Sojourners' magazine), and his imprint can be seen in movements that appear to be diverse, but in reality are merely heirs to Finney's legacy. From the Vineyard movement and the church growth movement to the political and social crusades, televangelism, and the Promise-Keepers movement, as a former Wheaton College president rather glowingly cheered, 'Finney lives on!'

That is because Finney's moralistic impulse envisioned a church that was in large measure an agency of personal and social reform rather than the institution in which the means of grace, Word and Sacrament, are made available to believers who then take the Gospel to the world. In the nineteenth century, the evangelical movement became increasingly identified with political causes--from abolition of slavery and child labor legislation to women's rights and the prohibition of alcohol. At the turn of the century, with an influx of Roman Catholic immigrants already making many American Protestants a bit uneasy, secularism began to pry the fingers of the Protestant establishment from the institutions (colleges, hospitals, charitable organizations) they had created and sustained. In a desperate effort at regaining this institutional power and the glory of 'Christian America' (a vision that is always powerful in the imagination, but, after the disintegration of Puritan New England, elusive), the turn-of-the-century Protestant establishment launched moral campaigns to 'Americanize' immigrants, enforce moral instruction and 'character education.' Evangelists pitched their American gospel in terms of its practical usefulness to the individual and the nation.

That is why Finney is so popular. He is the tallest marker in the shift from Reformation orthodoxy, evident in the Great Awakening (under Edwards and Whitefield) to Arminian (indeed, even Pelagian) revivalism, evident from the Second Great Awakening to the present. To demonstrate the debt of modern evangelicalism to Finney, we must first notice his theological departures. From these departures, Finney became the father of the antecedents to some of today's greatest challenges within the evangelical churches themselves; namely, the church growth movement, Pentecostalism and political revivalism.

Who Is Finney?

Reacting against the pervasive Calvinism of the Great Awakening, the successors of that great movement of God's Spirit turned from God to humans, from the preaching of objective content (namely, Christ and him crucified) to the emphasis on getting a person to 'make a decision.'

Charles Finney (1792-1875) ministered in the wake of the 'Second Awakening,' as it has been called. A Presbyterian lawyer, Finney one day experienced 'a mighty baptism of the Holy Ghost' which 'like a wave of electricity going through and through me...seemed to come in waves of liquid love.' The next morning, he informed his first client of the day, 'I have a retainer from the Lord Jesus Christ to plead his cause and I cannot plead yours.' Refusing to attend Princeton Seminary (or any seminary, for that matter), Finney began conducting revivals in upstate New York. One of his most popular sermons was, 'Sinners Bound to Change Their Own Hearts.'

Finney's one question for any given teaching was, 'Is it fit to convert sinners with?' One result of Finney's revivalism was the division of Presbyterians in Philadelphia and New York into Arminian and Calvinistic factions. His 'New Measures' included the 'anxious bench' (precursor to today's altar call), emotional tactics that led to fainting and weeping, and other 'excitements,' as Finney and his followers called them. Finney became increasingly hostile toward Presbyterianism, referring in his introduction to his Systematic Theology to the Westminster Confession and its drafters rather critically, as if they had created a 'paper pope,' and had 'elevated their confession and catechism to the Papal throne and into the place of the Holy Ghost.' Remarkably, Finney demonstrates how close Arminian revivalism, in its naturalistic sentiments, tends to be to a less refined theological liberalism, as both caved into the Enlightenment and its enshrining of human reason and morality:<>What's So Wrong With Finney's Theology?

First, one need go no further than the table of contents of his Systematic Theology to learn that Finney's entire theology revolved around human morality. Chapters one through five are on moral government, obligation, and the unity of moral action; chapters six and seven are 'Obedience Entire,' as chapters eight through fourteen discuss attributes of love, selfishness, and virtues and vice in general. Not until the twenty-first chapter does one read anything that is especially Christian in its interest, on the atonement. This is followed by a discussion of regeneration, repentance, and faith. There is one chapter on justification followed by six on sanctification. In other words, Finney did not really write a Systematic Theology, but a collection of essays on ethics.

But that is not to say that Finney's Systematic Theology does not contain some significant theological statements. First, in answer to the question, 'Does a Christian cease to be a Christian, whenever he commits a sin?', Finney answers:

Whenever he sins, he must, for the time being, cease to be holy. This is self-evident. Whenever he sins, he must be condemned; he must incur the penalty of the law of God...If it be said that the precept is still binding upon him, but that with respect to the Christian, the penalty is forever set aside, or abrogated, I reply, that to abrogate the penalty is to repeal the precept; for a precept without penalty is no law. It is only counsel or advice. The Christian, therefore, is justified no longer than he obeys, and must be condemned when he disobeys; or Antinomianism is true...In these respects, then, the sinning Christian and the unconverted sinner are upon precisely the same ground. (p. 46)

Finney believed that God demanded absolute perfection, but instead of that leading him to seek his perfect righteousness in Christ, he concluded that

...full present obedience is a condition of justification. But again, to the question, can man be justified while sin remains in him? Surely he cannot, either upon legal or gospel principles, unless the law be repealed...But can he be pardoned and accepted, and justified, in the gospel sense, while sin, any degree of sin, remains in him? Certainly not (p. 57).

With the Westminster Confession in his sights, Finney declares of the Reformation's formula 'simultaneously justified and sinful', 'This error has slain more souls, I fear, than all the universalism that ever cursed the world.' For, 'Whenever a Christian sins he comes under condemnation, and must repent and do his first works, or be lost' (p. 60).
