Angry Street Preacher Warning

No Inherent Sin Nature?

No Inherent Sin Nature?

Born Okay the First Time? After the Fall: Is Mankind Inherently Good or Evil?

SELF-RIGHTEOUS DEVILS will be in hell first according the Christ! (Matthew 21:31) There are lots of novices acting like they have the answers because they learned their heresies from now-in-hell wolves like Mike Desario and Charles Finney. Beware. These are the vilest of devils.

Some deny that there is a flesh nature to be crucified. Utter heresy.

Sin sure is a living entity called the “old man” which is ever with us and must be daily crucified – put to death (Romans 6; Colossians 3:9-10). If there were nothing to “put off” why would the LORD have told us to do so so often? ANY person teaching that there is no inherent sin nature, no “old man” to “put off” by the cross life daily, has openly called Jesus Christ and His holy apostles fools – because they perpetually taught the daily cross to crucify that old nature, that flesh (Romans 6, etc.).

Anti-Christ means to replace, to put something in place of Christ (1 John 4:1-3). The “spirit of antichrist” is active in the earth to unseat Christ from our lives – to put something, anything in place of Christ who repeatedly taught that in order to follow Him, one must repent, deny self, take up the cross daily, and walk with Him (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; 16:24-25, etc.). The “spirit of antichrist” is 100% the originator and behind the whole push, this heresy to teach that man has no inherent sinful nature, that he has no reason to “deny” (crucify) the self life, to be “crucified with Christ”, to “put off the old man” daily. Read Luke 9:23-24; Romans, Galatians 2:20; 5:24; Ephesians 4:21-24; Colossians 3:3, 8-10. Therefore we must conclude that those who teach such are “enemies of the CROSS of Christ.” (Philippians 3:18-19)

Beware of these vile false teachers who’ve followed heretics like Charles Finney and Mike Desario and their underling wolves operating in the professing church world today.

“O wretched man that I AM” (not was but AM) sounds like he’s presently dealing with the “old man” which must be perpetually crucified with Christ in this life – which is a test of who we truly love, self or the Savior (Romans 7:18, 24). This discourse in chapter 7 is leading to the following ultimate solution for sin….

“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.” Romans 8:19-21 

“Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?” Proverbs 20:9

“BY NATURE” – Outside of Christ’s merit, we are “dead in trespasses and sins,” children of “disobedience,” full of the “lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind,” and are “BY NATURE the children of wrath.” (Ephesians 2:1-3)

ACKNOWLEDGING the sin “nature” in no way means the believer is relegated to live in sin! (Ephesians 2:3) No! Yet denying this biblically stated reality is error. The Bible instructs us to crucify that old nature and allow Jesus to reign! This is one of the most prevalent truths in the New Testament canon. Those who deny the sin nature also never teach the cross! They are beguiled and misleading others! Beware saints. If there were no sin nature, WHY O WHY are we repeatedly instructed to crucify it????

Because they don’t view the old man as a sinful nature, those who teach this “no sin nature heresy” don’t see the need to crucify it as Scripture commands repeatedly.

“By nature through the fall of Adam, are we the children of wrath, heirs of the vengeance of God by birth, yea, and from our conception. And we have fellowship with the damned devils, under the power of darkness and rule of Satan, while we are yet in our mother’s wombs; and though we shew not forth the fruits of sin [as soon as we are born] yet are we full of the natural poison, whereof all sinful deeds spring, and cannot but sin outwards, (be we never so young,) [as soon as we be able to work,] if occasion be given: for our nature is to do sin, as is the nature of a serpent to sting… By grace (that is to say, by favour) we are plucked out of Adam, the ground of all evil, and grafted in Christ, the root of all goodness.” William Tyndale, A Pathway into the Holy Scripture

NOTE: DENYING THAT MANKIND IS FALLEN AND HAS A SIN BENT OR SIN NATURE IS FOOLISHNESS (GENESIS 6:5, 12; JEREMIAH 17:9, ETC). INSTEAD OF DENYING THIS SELF-EVIDENT AND BIBLICAL REALITY, BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS ARE TO CRUCIFY THAT OLD MAN (LUKE 9:23-24; ROMANS 6; 2 CORINTHIANS 4:10-12; GALATIANS 2:21; COLOSSIANS 3:5-10, ETC.).  THIS IS THE BIBLICAL PRESCRIPTION.

THE HEART OF THE HUMAN PROBLEM IS THE PROBLEM OF THE HUMAN HEART (Genesis 12:5, 12; Jer. 17:9; Romans 3, 7, etc.).

Bad fruit: The evil spirit behind these “doctrine of devils” is very sadistic, cruel, hateful and that’s the fruit that shows up in the lives who buy this system of lies (Matthew 7:15-20; 1 Timothy 4:1-3, etc.).

This disciples certainly doesn’t understand all things and yet, he has observed very evil, vicious fruit from those who have bought this package of lies from the modern false teachers who are regurgitating the heresies of Charles Finney. Instead of simply studying Holy Scripture, they’ve delved into the writings of a bygone wolf, a known false teacher who denied the atonement of Christ. This system of lies referred to here seems to draw in the self-righteous. Charles Finney Exposed.

Charles Finney’s heretical “natural ability” lie is clearly from Satan who through pagan, occultic, and new age gurus and false prophets and false religions of every variety, seeks to convince mankind that he is inherently good. That would mean that man has no need of God and that Jesus Christ came in vain. Such error denies the fall of mankind which is as foundational to biblical doctrine as it could possibly be. That would also mean that man is his own god.

If the human race wasn’t corrupted by sin, Why did Jesus have to be born of a virgin with God the Father as His Father? (Isaiah 7:14) Is Christ not unique in all of history? See Galatians 4:4. Or, did He come in vain because we have our own “natural ability” to please the Father and didn’t need Jesus to come? Do we not see “the spirit of antichrist” in this open denial of Jesus Christ? (1 John 4:1-3) Read Galatians 2:21. Do we not see how this diabolical system of theology replaces Jesus with us? “Anti” means “in place of.” “The spirit of antichrist” refers to that evil spirit(s) that seek to replace the LORD Jesus with something, anything else in order to rob the glory from the only begotten Son.

Is man innately good? “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”(Romans 3:10)

“For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.”  Ecclesiastes 3:20

When God created man originally in the Garden, He said it was good and very good but that was before the sin and fall.

“And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.” Exodus 32:22 (KJV)

Just after the LORD had created man in His own image, He said: “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:31) Yet that was before the first sin and fall of man. Man sinned and fell and an ongoing curse was incurred upon mankind and creation (Genesis 3). Sin did and does have a negative impact on all of God’s creation. To deny such is to deny that our Maker is Holy and to greatly err and build one’s theology on a faulty foundation.

“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Isaiah 64:6

Did Jesus come to earth in vain? Are you declaring such by your doctrine and don’t realize it?

IF we for a moment vainly think that we have any part in meriting/deserving divine grace and mercy which we do not in the least deserve, we are utterly deluded and have no clue as to what the Bible declares about sinful mankind – you. Let’s get a cursory clue:

  •  Outside of Christ, You are nothing but “wickedness” in the eyes of Him who is “Holy, holy, holy.” (Genesis 6:5; Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8)
  • “every imagination of the thoughts of his (your) heart” is “only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5)
  • You are utterly “corrupt” and your ways are “corrupted.” (Genesis 6:12)
  • ALL of your supposed “righteousness” are as “filthy rags” (discarded menstrual clothes) in His holy eyes (Isaiah 64:6)
  • Your heart us “deceitful ABOVE ALL things” and “desperately wicked.” (Jeremiah 17:9)
  • You are unrighteous (Romans 3:10).
  • There is “no good thing” at all in your except Christ – if He’s truly there (Romans 3:10-12; 7:18, 24).
  • You have sinned and “come short of the glory God.” (Romans 3:23)
  • You have violated a holy God and are worthy only of spiritual and eternal “death.”(Romans 6:23)
  • You are a “wretch man” (Romans 7:24)
  • You are “unprofitable,” full of “deceit” and “poison,” “cursing,” “bitterness,” bloodshed, “misery,” and no fear of God (Romans 3:12-19).
  • Without the sheer mercy of God through Jesus Christ, you are “guilty before God.”(Romans 3:19)
  • Outside of Christ’s merit, we are “dead in trespasses and sins,” children of “disobedience,” full of the “lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind,” and are “BY NATURE the children of wrath.” (Ephesians 2:1-3)

PEOPLE WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD HAS DECLARED ABOUT FALLEN, SINFUL MANKIND, CANNOT POSSIBLY APPRECIATE THE SAVIOR, THE ONLY MESSIAH. THEY ARE THEREFORE SELF-RIGHTEOUSLY PRONE TO VAINLY IMAGINE THAT THEY ARE MERITING THEIR OWN WAY WITH GOD. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

NO INHERENT SIN?

“Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” Romans 5:18-19

Yes we are “ALL” personally responsible because we’ve “ALL sinned” (Rom 3) …. yet Rom 5 says “many were made sinners” by way of our fallen lineage. No the Bible says repent because you are a sinner – “by nature” (Eph 2:3) and by your own sins. So if we were not born in sin or astray, and have our own “natural ability” to overcome sin, why do we need Jesus?

“When man broke fellowship with God, the judgment of God rested on all mankind: ‘Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.’” Milton Green, The Great Falling Away, p. 20

In order to peddle their self-glorifying, Christ-rejecting wares, the false teacher must do violence to this passage above. In one article from a person attempting to sell his “no sin nature” wares, the writer argues that “If ALL are automatically condemned through Adam, then ALL are automatically justified and righteous through Jesus.” Not true. Romans 5:18 says that “as by the offence of one (Adam) judgment came upon ALL men to condemnation.” Could it be any clearer?  The Bible plainly reveals that “judgment came upon ALL men” as a result of Adam’s sin and therefore we know that “all men” are under divine “condemnation due to Adam’s sin. Yet the LORD gave His only begotten Son in order to grant “all men” the way of escape – redemption from sin. The Bible also told us that “ALL HAVE SINNED and come short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23) Not some but “ALL.”  Nothing could be more clear in God’s Word and yet, these wolves seek to convince the gullible that mankind is okay just like he is – that he was born good the first time and therefore there is no need to be “born again.” (John 3:3, 7)

“Judgment came upon ALL men” due to Adam’s sin and “ALL have sinned” against God and “ALL” have the opportunity to repent and be saved although all will not do such (Romans 3:10, 23; 5:18). The fact that “all have sinned” in no way necessitates that all will be justified through the second Adam, Jesus Christ. Each individual is granted that choice. Some will and some won’t – “many” won’t (Matthew 7:13-14).

The no-original-sin wolves do not believe that the sin of Adam is upon the world. They teach that the fall of mankind had no effect upon mankind (Romans 5). Which would seem like sin against a holy God is not a very important thing, yet they hypocritically preach against it harshly. But their false doctrine of no-inherent-sin completely does away with the need to be born again seeing there is no reason – there is nothing to be born again from. That would mean that there is no reason for regeneration or a change of anyone’s nature life since they do not have original sin or are not sinful by nature due to the original fall of mankind. So what do they need Jesus for and what is the need of saving divine mercy and grace since they have no effect of sin? In their deluded minds, they have no inherent sin nature but they DO have personal, inherent power over sin within themselves. Sound New Age?  What they believe is a dangerous doctrine of devils.  They have denied Christ.

Yes we have all done our own sinning and yet an evil inner bent (iniquity) was passed on to us – Romans 5:12, 18-19….. To say that mankind was not damaged and contaminated at the fall is amazingly misguided at best.

You are wrongly assuming that everyone who simply acknowledges the Bible true of the evil inward “nature” of fallen mankind assumes that it’s okay to sin because they can’t help it (Ephesians 2:3). That is false and a heretical band aid of man’s doing. It’s not God’s answer – the cross life is – being raised by the Holy Ghost to overcome all sin (Romans 6-8; 2 Corinthians 4:10-12; Galatians 2:20, etc.).

TO ASSUME THAT PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ON THIS MATTER BLAME ALL THEIR OWN SINS ON ADAM IS LAUGHABLE AT BEST. TOTAL STRAW MAN COP-OUT.

There is a difference between “iniquity” and “transgression” …. “iniquity” (Heb. AVON) is the inward bent toward sin whereas “transgression” is the actual act of sin. The heretics being addressed in this post deny the biblical reality of iniquity – which came after the fall (Romans 5:18-19; 7:18, 24, etc.).

The changed life comes AFTER Jesus saves (regenerates) the person. Saying a person has got to stop all sin before being saved is not Scriptural. We need to be wise and not gullible and cross examine all this no-original-sin and no-sin-nature stuff. Don’t allow those who push these things to exercise control over you by forcing you into a battery of questions.

Mike Desario is one of the vile devils teaching this system of lies. He has many gullible modern disciples who are peddling these lies. Beware!

The ability to conquer all sin is the stated will of God and yet that divine ability (Grace = divine ability) does not enter the saved person until he is first saved. So how can someone “stop all sinning” before being saved by grace? Impossible. And, that is unmitigated idolatry, antichrist – putting self before, in place of Christ who alone is Savior and LORD. Repentance is first and foremost turning TO GOD and not turning from sin. If you get these out of order, you are a heretic.

It’s more than obvious by Scripture that there IS something to be regenerated and born from above and to crucify. So, if we have no sin nature, what would that be? We must be born again to receive the new nature through regeneration. So, what needed to be changed? Obviously something.

What does Ephesians 4:22 say of the old man? – “That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;” Ephesians 4:22 (KJV)  If there were no remaining “old man” to be “put off,” WHY O WHY would Paul have stated this?

What was your spiritual state before Jesus found and saved you?

“And you hath he quickened (made alive), who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” Ephesians 2:1-3

Why did we have to be “quickened” which means to be made alive? V1 Did we quicken or make ourselves alive? Or, was there any need to be made alive at all? Who raised us up and from what did He raise us up from?

What does “dead in trespasses and sins” mean? We “were dead in trespasses and sins.”

What does “by nature” mean here in v3? – “were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” (Ephesians 2:3)

If we aren’t somehow affected by the fall of the first man and sin, what is it that we need to be made alive for?

Romans 7 cannot be explained around. If we have no sin in us then what has to be daily crucified? Paul said he had to “keep under” his body and bring it into subjection (1 Corinthians 9:27). If there is nothing to “keep under” daily, WHY O WHY did the apostle state this?

Consider the following ….

“And you hath he quickened (made alive), who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” Ephesians 2:1-3 

Here Paul is speaking to regenerated disciples of Christ and their past lives, having been regenerated and made a “new creature.” (2 Cor. 5:17-18)

The Bible tells us that as born again believers “old things are passed away.” (2 Corinthians 5:17-18) What is it that “passed away”? There had to be something or this phrase would not be in the Bible (2 Corinthians 5:17-18)

—– The born again new creature in Christ still has a sinful nature. Listen to the apostle – “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.” (Romans 7:18) The sinful nature cannot be cast out (like a devil). The “old man” must be daily overcome by the cross – accounting ourselves dead and buried with Christ (Colossians 3:1-10). Paul further states “O wretched man that I am! (not only “was” but “is” – presently) who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” (Romans 7:24)

He Found Us!

Out of His sheer mercy, when you deserved judgment and eternal misery, God found you – you didn’t find Him. – “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. … We love him, because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:10, 19)

“We owe a debt we cannot pay. He paid a debt He did not owe.” unknown

“But by the grace of God I am what I am.” 1 Corinthians 15:10

The true disciple boasts only in the saving GRACE of God in light of his own “desperately wicked” depravity and sinful state without Christ, the only salvation:

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”  Ephesians 2:8-9

Boasting in the sheer mercy of the LORD and never in sinful, filthy-rags-unrighteousness self:

“But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 NOTTTTTT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7

“HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS” as opposed to the sham of our own, is only given to those who place and KEEP their trust in “JESUS”:

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:23-26 (KJV)

For those already made righteous through God’s n, there is no excuse for ANY sinning and yet when we have been blessed to overcome, it is to the glory of the LORD alone and there is no boasting of self that is appropriate. – “That no flesh should glory in his presence … That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:29-31)

“The great secret of abiding in Christ is the deep conviction that we are nothing, and He is everything.” Andrew Murray, Abide in Christ

“I accomplish more when I rest wholly in the labor of Jesus than I do when I frantically try to do the work for Him.” AW Tozer

God cannot and will not use any person who refuses to believe His decree about fallen mankind. Such a person is arrogant and full of pride and we know that “God resisteth (sets Himself against) the proud but giveth grace unto the humble.” (James 4:6-11)

MESSAGE RECEIVED:

—– TODAY: Someone wrote me about heretic Mike Desario. Desario is one of the vilest devils alive friends, teaching a false gospel on many fronts and “accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-9)

“Thank you sir 🙂 Someone recommended Mike Desario to me but this has made me think twice. However, even the best teachers can be mistaken about one or two minor details. What really matters is their spirit, that is how we know if they are truly born again or not. Are they holy, or carnal? Whoever made this video is utterly carnal. Sadly, with many men you don’t need to read their “statement of faith”, you can see clearly that they have not been saved from their sin and still walk in darkness.” Lee

RESPONSE:

Hi Lee. Well their doctrine matters most actually (2 John 7-11; Romans 16:17-18; Titus 2:1, etc.) The word “Doctrine” appears 51 times in Holy Scripture (KJB). The heretical falsehoods of Desario are not minor beloved brother. He’s a vile wolf and I have heard his lies and seen the fruit of it in the lives of many. It’s very ugly. Walking in Christ’s truth always, without exception, produces the fruit of the Spirit – love! …. Yeah I didn’t even listen to this video. I agree with the title and so commented. Add me on FB brother. God bless you today in Jesus!

Question Received:

“Hello. I have been looking at your site and found some good things there but I have a question on Charles Finney. You condemn him because he doesn’t believe in total depravity. You condemn Calvin because he does, yet it seems that you believe in total depravity (all men born sinful with the sin of Adam). Am I picking you up wrong? Please could you explain this confusion.

Thanks again. Paul

Reply:

“Hi. The LORD Jesus bless you today brother. I hope all is well in your life and your family.

Total depravity, as defined by calvinism goes to the errant extent as to say that man, in his sinful state, has no ability to respond to God’s drawing to repentance which is totally false. Calvinism’s “total depravity” is not biblical because calvinism teaches that man has no choice in this matter or any. That’s the difference in calvinism and biblical doctrine.

The problem with Finney is that he takes it far too far by insisting that man has no sinful inclinations at all and that he has the “natural ability” to overcome sin in and of himself. That’s ludicrous and exes Christ right out of salvation’s equation which goes against all of Scripture.

It’s my advice to leave Finney alone and get into God’s Word on this matter. Paul makes it abundantly clear that he still had to overcome daily by the power of Christ in him and that must mean there is something to overcome (1 Corinthians 9:27; Romans 6-7). Romans 7 is present tense. There IS certain an evil bent in fallen men –  a corruption (Genesis 6:5, 12) – and yet God makes us new creatures when He regenerates us (born again) and grants us His grace to conquer and “keep under” that sin nature or bent (1 Corinthians 9:27). The full-counsel of God reveals that we must not deny this inherent sin nature but rather trust Him alone (not our own supposed “natural ability”) to overcome it daily as we lay down our lives (Romans 6:14; 8:12-14, etc.).

Is Christ Jesus our salvation or are we? That’s what this boils down to.

If there is nothing in us to crucify then why did Paul tell us that “the flesh lusteth (strives) against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh”? (Galatians 5:17-18)

There are many Bible truths that reveal that Finney taught falsely.

Man surely is sinful by “nature” (Ephesians 2:1-3) and yet he has been given by God the ability to make the choice to repent and receive Christ and Christ alone is the answer to man’s sin. Man has no answers or hope or “natural ability in and of and for himself as Finney taught.  Charles Finney ousted Jesus Christ right out of the salvation picture. That’s antichrist – “the spirit of antichrist.” (1 John 4:1-6) “Antichrist” means against OR in place of Christ. Rom 6; Gal. 5:17-18

There are many now who are preaching Finney’s falsehoods and so that makes them Finney believers and not true disciples of Jesus Christ. They are denying Christ by denying His Word and by preaching another gospel – a false one (Galatians 1:6-9). This makes them “accursed.”

Thank you for emailing brother. | Charles Finney Exposed

FEEDBACK:

“Praise God, I was a no inherent sin nature guy because of teachings of my friends, Kerrigan Skelly and Jesse Morrell, fellow street preachers, but I looked up the word “nature” in Galatians 2:15: “We who are Jews by nature…” and Ephesians 2:3 after reading your articles about Stop Sinning and No Inherent Sin, and concluded that yes, we inherited a self-centered, rebellious against God “flesh” from Adam..Romans 5:19.. Finney has quite an impact, unfortunately, on holiness preachers…Thanks again!” Eric N.

“Charles Finney is highly esteem among many Christians, and his writing are also highly recommended for read. Many years ago I read some of his writings and was troubled by his unsound doctrine. My advice would be, flee from his wrintings. Thanks for your post!” Lloyd H.

“Excellent article! These people that are preaching these things not only take away from the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but take away from the writings and entire purpose of Gods plan for reconciling all back to Himself. They have taken so much from the biblical writings, that they are actually teaching a completely different gospel. And one that is not of the Holy God of Israel, but rather a gospel of self, which is definitely in my own opinion a doctrine of devils. Thanks again for sharing this valuable message.”Karen M.

Charles Finney: FALSE TEACHER

Charles Finney can be blamed for many misguided men today who have enough time to feed on his poison and obviously little time to study and know God’s Word. In Finney’s blasphemous, Christ-denying theology, the individuals own personal morality earns his own merit from God. Christ’s atoning sacrifice is brazenly denied.

“Neither is the atonement nor anything in the mediatorial work of Christ, the foundation of our justification, in the sense of the source, moving or procuring cause.”  Charles Finney, Obedience to the Moral Law, p. 375, 376

Of Finney, one author notes:

“Specifically, what were Finney’s most serious errors? At the top of the list stands his rejection of the doctrine of justification by faith. Finney denied that the righteousness of Christ is the sole ground of our justification, teaching instead that sinners must reform their own hearts in order to be acceptable to God. (His emphasis on self-reformation apart from divine enablement is again a strong echo of Pelagianism.)

He derided the concept of imputation as unjust: “I could not but regard and treat this whole question of imputation as a theological fiction, somewhat related to our legal fiction of John Doe and Richard Roe” [Memoirs, 60].

Having decided that the doctrine of imputation was a “theological fiction,” he was forced to deny not only the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to believers, but also the imputation of the sinner’s guilt to Christ on the cross. Under Finney’s system, Christ could not have actually borne anyone else’s sin or suffered sin’s full penalty in their place and in their stead (contra Isaiah 53:6; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 John 2:2). Finney therefore rejected the doctrine of substitutionary atonement.

There can be no justification in a legal or forensic sense, but upon the ground of universal, perfect, and uninterrupted obedience to law. …” [Systematic Theology, 362].”

“Charles Finney was a legalist.  His teaching implied that we are saved by grace but sanctified by human effort to keep law.  This approach is destroyed by Galatians 3:3.”

Mike Desario is an antichrist false teacher who teaches salvation by merit of the sinner. Mike Desario has misled many gullible novices/younger guys in ministry. Those men may not tell you but they got their false teachings from Mike Desario and false teacher Charles Finney.
