"I demand your decision now and whom do you suppose that I am now addressing? Every impenitent sinner in this house -- everyone. I call heaven and earth to record that I have set the gospel before your today. Will you take it? Sinner, the infinite God waits your consent!" - Finney.
"For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified." - Paul, in Holy Scripture
God needs the consent of no human, neither in Creation or in Providence or in His Sovereign act of Redemption unto eternal life. Thus, Finney-ism mischaracterizes God as neither sovereign nor almighty in the realm of soteriology. This, my dear friends, is nothing less than the doorway into idolatry- false worship hidden in the disguise of Christian religion.
Point is NOT: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense."
I know, I am nowhere near as eloquent as Joe.
