Thought for today

Finney was asked what he thought about double predestination (that God sends some people to hell for no other reason than his glory) . Here's his response:

It presents not the real and true God, but a different being. It is practicing  a deception on him, by holding out  the idea that God desires his  damnation, and he must submit to it; for God has  taken His solemn  oath that He desires not the death of the wicked, but that he  turn  from his wickedness and live. It is a slander upon God, and charging  God  with perjury. Every man under the gospel, knows that God desires  sinners to be  saved, and it is impossible to hide the fact.
