“Only do not forget strongly and explicitly to urge the believers to go on to perfection. When this is constantly and earnestly done, the word is always clothed with power.”
~John Wesley letter dated June 5, 1787
“Never dream of forcing men into the ways of God. Think yourself, and let think. Use no constraint in matters of religion. Even those who are farthest out of the way never compel to come in by any other means than reason, truth, and love.”
~John Wesley (Sermon 37 “The Nature of Enthusiasm”).
