Quote of the Day

“I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them: 1. To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy; 2. To speak no evil of the person they voted against; and 3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.”

John Wesley, eighteenth-century theologian and father of the Methodist movement, in a journal entry dated October 3, 1774. Wesley’s views on sanctification and holiness would inspire the 19th century American holiness movement, which in turn inspired the Brethren in Christ.

      1. Thank you for the quick response. The quote reaffirms some reflection I have had on “render unto Caesar”. I want to render my vote (which is Caesar’s) but I do not want to render my heart, attitude and tongue (which is unto God).
