The Heresy Taught by the Rev. G. O. Barnes Exposed and Answered

by Henry Grattan Guinness

Timothy Stunt said ...

George Owen Barnes [1827-1908], whose teaching Guinness deplored so strongly in this booklet, was apparently, for a time during the 1870s, on good terms with JND, who spent a week at the end of 1872 in Kentucky (Barnes's bailliwick) [see JND Letters ii. 201-202]. For an account of this friendship, written from Barnes's point of view see W.T. Price, Without scrip or purse; or "The Mountain Evangelist," George O. Barnes. The History of a Consecrated Life, . . . (Louisville KY: Price, 1883) pp.151-152. If Price's account is reliable, Barnes and JND parted company in Chicago, some years later, in disagreement over the Great Tribulation through which, in Barnes's opinion, unfaithful saints would have to pass.
