A Radical Church

A Radical Church
Here is a little history that you may not know about the Wesleyan Church. "In the 1830s and early 1840s politicians and preachers joined ranks to attack the evil institution of slavery. Reformers Orange Scott and Luther Lee based their abolitionist position on the fundamental concern that those in bondage to other persons could not fulfill their obligations to obey God. Out of this theologically-based abolitionist stance, the Wesleyan Methodist Church was born in 1843."
