November 20, 2017 Resources: Childishness vs. Foolishness; Charles Finney The Heretic; Perspective on Texas

by Jonathan Hamilton

This article helped clarify some things for my wife and I when it comes to discerning childishness vs. foolishness in a child, and what to do about each.

Here is an excellent article on Charles Finney. Unfortunately, many evangelicals either have no idea who Finney was, or look back with affection on him. Finney should be remembered, and remembered correctly, or we will fail to learn the lessons we ought to from his legacy. The sort of theologians and church historians whom I trust rightly reject Finney as a heretical and highly influential evangelist who, more than any other individual, has shaped American evangelicalism into the embarrassing mess that it is today (if you’d like to understand this better, I’d encourage you to pick up a copy of “Revival and Revivalism” by Iain Murray).

A good perspective on the tragedy in Texas.
