Four Great Wesleyan Distinctives III

Holiness has always been at the heart of the Wesleyan message. Yet, today, the life of holiness has all but collapsed among so many called “Methodists.” The recapturing of holiness must surely be one of the gravest challenges before us. Wesley would have been shocked to hear that the “people called Methodists” would someday advocate taking sins off of the sin lists in the New Testament and declaring them sacraments, or means of grace. But, these are the days we are in. Two months ago, I began a four part series on rebuilding our Wesleyan heritage. This third part focuses on the Wesleyan view of holiness. Next month will conclude with the Wesleyan view of the world.
