Yet a friend sent me these words from Wesley’s journal during an election year:
Thur. 6. – “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:
3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.”

OR: Ages Software, 2000).
Sounds like matters of Savior, cross, and resurrection were more important to Wesley than issues of state, candidate or race, doesn’t it?
