JOHN WESLEY MOMENTS
John Wesley wrote, “There is no other religious society under heaven which requires nothing of men in order to their admission into it, but a desire to save their souls. Look around you, you cannot be admitted into the Church or society of the Presbyterians, Anabaptists, Quakers, or any other, unless you hold the same opinions with them, and adhere to the same mode of worship.
“The Methodists alone do not insist on your holding this or that opinion; but they think and let think. Neither do they impose any particular mode of worship; but you may continue to worship in your former manner, be that what it may. Now, I do not know any religious society, either ancient or modern, wherein such liberty of conscience is allowed, or has been allowed, since the age of the Apostles. Here in is our glorying; and a glorying peculiar to us. What society shares it with us?”
