How God loves us

The very first time I read this quote from Oswald Chambers I thought of the same gender debate and the accusation that conservatives are failing to adequately love LGBTQ people: "Unless my relationship to God is right, my sympathy for men will lead me astray and them also, but once when I am right with God, I can love my neighbor as God has loved me. How has God loved me? God has loved me to the end of all my sinfulness, the end of all my self-will, all my selfishness, all my stiff-neckedness, all my pride, all my self-interest; now He says I am to show to my fellow men the same love."

And when it comes to John Wesley's heart-warming experience, that was the experience of God forgiving his sins. John and Charles then went on to create a set of practices that enabled others to have the same experience of God.

And when it comes to Rule 44, you might be interested in hearing from one who has devoted his life to understanding Christian Conferencing as Wesley understood it and would love to see the practice reclaimed in The United Methodist Church: https://vitalpiety.com/2016/05/12/rule-44-and-umcgc/

This might be good advice for you to take:

If you want to win me to your perspective, don’t point out all the ways that I’m completely illogical and stupid. -
