John Wesley Quote




“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”).

Amen. You may say it every day, but do you even know what it means?

And, for those United Methodists old enough to remember, why is it not at the end of hymns any longer? Chuck explains.
