"You learn to look at his nose or mouth when discussing anything with this genius." Hah!
You may disagree with Finney's theology, but he had the anointing of God on his life. Have you ever read his autobiography?
Honestly, I haven't read Finney's autobiography. I have read many accounts of his life and read a great deal of his theology. But, I wouldn't trust an autobiography for an objective viewpoint. If Ed Young Jr./Benny Hinn/Creflo Dollar wrote their autobiographies I wouldn't believe their own hype - because I see how much they have departed from God's Word.
...because Finney could apparently get people to accept Christ against their will. Wait... what?
Finney and Pavlov had a lot in common.
