Summary

Charles Finney (1792-1875) was an American Presbyterian preacher known for his revival services and extemporaneous preaching. Although he belonged to a Calvinist denomination, he rejected several of Calvinism’s central doctrines. While staunch Calvinists believed in the perseverance of the saints, Finney believed that a Christian could “backslide,” or turn back from the Christian life and revert to a life of sin. In this address, Finney clarifies his theology of backsliding, first explaining what it is not, then what it is. He describes what a backslidden life might look like, and what consequences living in sin bring upon the sinner. Finney closes his address with advice for escaping a state of backsliding, reminding people of Christ’s grace and loving kindness.
