Christians being humans

This book tells us nothing other than people in the past were just like us - humans

A lack of Wesleyen Quad

The reason you don't see weighty discussions on the subject is the proLGBT side which longs for ordination and whatnot has no argument that would pass the Wesleyen Quad, no reading of the church fathers support their claims either.

You're Too Kind to Methodists!

Let's not forget that John Wesley was a liar and plagarist, and given to gross hyperbole and fabrication in public statements when it came to those who disagreed with his Pelagian theological tendencies. Research his disagreements with Augustus Toplady if you don't believe me :-)

John Wesley a common liar?

This article urges us be respectful of others “even when we disagree” (from the very first sentence). You are defaming the hero of Methodists! Please check your records as something is a-miss sir!

Did You Do Your Research?

I am not being disrespectful. I am simply saying that you must be exacting in your research. Wesley was no better or worse than other theologians. He was "totally depraved" just like the rest of them. My major disagreement with him was that he could not quite leave behind the concept that he had some greater or lesser responsibility for justification by his own actions; i.e., his obsession with entire sanctification. As I said in my original post, research some of Wesley's vilification of his theological opponents.

The theological war on the internet

Has been going on since at least GC2012. Every time somebody makes a statement, somebody else critiques it. It is not unusual that a third party then critiques the critique. Most recently progressives had a scholars in which they documented why they believe what they believe. It completely contradicted everything traditionalists have been saying. I can not even count the number of time Acts 15 been analyzed and reanalyzed with everybody claiming it supports their position. As a UMC laity it makes my head spin how everybody can use God, Jesus, the Bible and John Wesley to support understandings that contradict each other. But hey, let's go for it, go deeper, let's throw Greek and Latin into the mix; my guess is we will still end up in the same place.
