The Church Reforms the World

"It is astonishing to read Finney's statement in his twenty-third Lecture on Revival that 'the great business of the Church is to reform the world...The Church of Christ was originally organized to be a body of reformers. The very profession of Christianity implies the profession and virtually an oath to do all that can be done for the universal reformation of the world.'"
