  1. What the last paragraph of part 2 says is in fact what we must do. We must recconect with the sound doctrine of the older tradition and leave behind revivalism if we are to be true to God and His Word.

  2. We must also leave behind "freewill" doctrine that is so pivotal to revivalist doctrine and return to the doctrine of election as Calvin made so clear.

  3. We must also get away from "freewill" doctrine that is so much a part of Finneys methods and return to the clear teaching of scripture that was made clear by men like Calvin,Spurgeon,and Edwards
