Rev. Leon Finney Jr.'s free fall
The Rev. Leon Finney Jr. spent the last half-century building a real estate empire on Chicago’s South Side while amassing political power and hobnobbing with politicians like Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Richard M. Daley and Toni Preckwinkle.

Now in his twilight years, Finney’s fiefdom teeters on the brink of collapse.

Once revered for his community work, Finney, 81, stands accused of fraud, self-dealing and mismanagement after his nonprofit, the Woodlawn Community Development Corporation, filed for bankruptcy in October and the curtains were pulled back on its finances.

Finney has been ousted at the organization he helped create. And, in a rare step, a federal judge appointed a trustee in April to take control of Woodlawn, a move the nonprofit fought. Piece by piece, its real estate holdings are being sold off. ...

Been to New England lately, DF? I actually haven't, but when I was stationed up there, you could identify Christians from afar just by how they carried themselves in comparison with the crowd. And there weren't that many around.

Finney, the Charles variety, was an early charismatic type. When the hype and all the promises of blessing wore off, those who "showed up for the free meal and not the changed heart" departed a bit jaded.

I have to admit that when I saw the name Finney, I did think of Charles Finney.
It would be interesting to see in detail the 'ruins of faith' in New England that he left as his legacy. One thing that might be included is that a lot of strange religious cults got started in the 'burnt-over' district of New York, like Joseph Smith leading to Mormonism, and I think Miller who led to Jehovah's Witnesses.
A lot of colleges got their start in the 1850s as well; it must have been an interesting time.

Owen, your comment reminded me of what we first looked at during our fellowship time yesterday, the grievance of the Lord with his own people in the book of Haggai, which prompted him to say:

Haggai 1:7 KJV
(7)  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

HE wasted his life just like some of us a doing building our earthly life and forgetting the eternal life. May he repent and return to the Lord.

2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

So, THBCC, you're saying this man is worse than Charles Finney, who left ruins of faith across the New England landscape?

At some point, truth will be revealed. This man apparently misused his power to amass financial success, as if godliness were gain, while poor people suffered...and thanks to his influence, all of us are suffering under unrighteous rule of the Progressives he helped launch. This is just a small picture of what socialism brings...ruin to all.

Instead, turning to the Lord Jesus who is calling a remnant of all nations and ethnicities to Himself, people find true freedom. The Lord works through hard work to bring enough. He builds up by making work effective work.

This is very disturbing, and may even be taken as a racial attack on the man who is black. I am surprised any newspaper in Chicago would touch this with a ten-foot pole. Of course, along the same lines, none have felt it newsworthy to cover the FBI report on Martin Luther King, Jr, which involves much illicit activity described in Biblical euphemism as "Adam knew his wife"
