Part of the Tuesday Guy   series (NoCo)

On today's episode of NoCo, Pastor Mike and Pastor Steve discuss Charles Grandison Finney (1792-1875). On the surface Charles Finney may look like a hero of faith to some; but by actually looking at what he said compared to what the Bible says one can conclude that he preached horrible, man centered theology that played to the will of man and placed man above the sovereignty of God.

If you are going to have a hero in faith, why would you settle for Charles Finney? How can Finney be your hero? You need to think Biblically and truthfully about your heroes-this includes Charles Finney. Take out your Bible and follow along as Pastor Mike and Pastor Steve use the Word of God to expose Finney's wrong teachings. Bible versus mentioned: Romans 5, Ephesians 2, Jeremiah 17:9, Ephesians 4:17-19, Genesis 6:5, 2 Corinthians 13:5 Check out Phil Johnson's article on Charles Finney titled: A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: How Charles Finney's Theology Ravaged the Evangelical Movement
