Considering My Posts on Wesley...

I found this link (via Monday Morning Insights) about John Wesley: 10 Things You'd Hate About John Wesley. I have posted about weird skeletons in the closets of the revered leader.

I think this teaches us that history has a way of romanticizing our leaders and heroes. Often, history forms them into people that we could never hope to be. John Wesley, surprise?, was human. He had faults, and many of his greatest strengths were also his greatest weaknesses.

  1. HA! Makes you wonder why the modern church has this "you must fit into this box to be used in ministry" mentality huh?

    Everyone who chases God can be used. Even if in the eyes of the church they are a mental case or worse.

    Anything else is limiting God IMO.
