In the mid-eighteenth century, a reform movement in the Church of England was making great headway. In fact, many historians believe that this reform movement helped prevent in England the violent revolts against royalty that occurred in the rest of Europe during that period. This movement led by John and Charles Wesley emphasized both works and personal piety.
Welcome to part 2 of this 3 part series on one of the doctrinal statements of the United Methodist Church: The General Rules of the Methodist Societies. The Rules are:
- Do no harm.
- Do Good.
- Practice the spiritual disciplines.
This week we concentrate on the rule to Do Good. The scripture chosen to help illustrate this is Matthew 25:31-36.
