Overview

Charles Grandison Finney was an American Presbyterian minister and leader in the Second Great Awakening in the United States. He has been called The Father of Modern Revivalism. Finney was best known as an innovative revivalist during the period 1825-35 in upstate New York and Manhattan, an opponent of Old School Presbyterian theology, an advocate of Christian perfectionism, and a religious writer.
Together with several other evangelical leaders, his religious views led him to promote social reforms, such as abolition of slavery and equal education for women and African Americans. From 1835 he taught at Oberlin College of Ohio, which accepted both genders and all races. He served as its second president from 1851 to 1866, during which its faculty and students were activists for abolition, the Underground Railroad, and universal education.

That the text was not designed by our Savior to refer exclusively to the faith of miracles, is proved by the connection in which it stands. If you read the chapter, you will see that Christ and his apostles were at this time very much engaged in their work, and very prayerful; and as they returned from their place of retirement in the morning, faint and hungry, they saw a fig-tree at a little distance. It looked very beautiful, and doubtless gave signs as if there was fruit on it; but when they came nigh, they found nothing on it but leaves. And Jesus said, " No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. " And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig- tree dried up from the roots. "And Peter, calling to remembrance, saithunto him, Master, behold the fig-tree which thou cursedst is withered away. " And Jesus answering, saith unto them, have faith in God. " For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea ; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." Then follow the words of the text: " Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." Our Savior was desirous of giving his disciples instructions respecting the nature and power ofprayer, and the necessity of strong faith in God. He therefore stated a ve...
