whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose.”

“You do not take your daughter to see my play. You are right.

Let me say once and for all that you must not take your daughter to the theater.

It is not merely the work that is immoral, it is the place.”

– Dumas playwright, written to a friend

– Quoted by Paul Rees.

Be aware –

Men who once preached in pulpits, women who once sang in church, missionaries who once ministered, “christian” educators who once taught are, as you read this, burning in hell. Their position was just that, a position – they lacked (or lost) their Relationship with Christ and, unspeakably sad, died in that condition.

Oh, what of the day, when sin passed away

And glory surrounded the soul

Gone was my night, all was pure light

Christ had made me wholly whole.

His way was best – my soul had soul-rest.

Paul Wood Finch (Sr.) was born 1/27/1910 in Kentucky.  On 6/11/1935 he married Georgia Johnson.  God blessed him with an international ministry: evangelizing Ireland for three years, preaching his way up the continent of Africa mission station to station, leading Holy Land tours, and crossing the Atlantic 40 times.  He shared the platform with Leonard Ravenhill, the late Ian Paisley, and on one occasion preached to James Edwin Orr (who wrote “Search Me O God”).  Finch wrote Revival Messages, and The World’s Greatest Need.  Bro Finch change his old body for a new one 7/8/2003 (1:40 AM) at Holland, MI.

Personal note – I met Bro. Finch in May of ’65, we taught together (him experienced, me, a freshman teacher) at Hobe ‘67-70, and I had him at least three times for meetings when I pastored.  I’ve known several who came from extremely rigid religious backgrounds – many went to the left, not knowing where to stop, not Bro Finch.  He was a balanced man who preached a livable Holiness Message and Lived It!


Finch Quotes:

Sadducees, the liberals of the New Testament, Pharisees the legalistic ones of the New Testament.

Legalist – a carnal man trying to do right.

The good is the enemy of the best (may not be his originally, but he is who I heard say it).
