Compare/contrast Wesley’s thought with an aspect of Jonathan Edwards’ thinking (in the excerpt, “True Religion and True Affections,” Kerr, 199-201)

Respond to the assignment in this week’s Dialogue (Group Discussion) area in Blackboard.

In the excerpt, “Witness of the Spirit” (Kerr, pp. 191-192), John Wesley sets out to find a “middle way” between the twin dangers of “mere formality,” on the one hand, and “wildness of enthusiasm” on the other with respect to the important biblical truth that “The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Romans 8:16, ESV).

  • Considering the relevant reading in Kerr (along with other sources), briefly elaborate on Wesley’s thought concerning this “momentous truth” of the “testimony of the Spirit” and how to live in light of it.
  • Then, provide an illustration/example of one of the dangers that Wesley seeks to avoid and tell how it might be circumvented.
  • Finally, briefly compare/contrast Wesley’s thought with an aspect of Jonathan Edwards’ thinking (in the excerpt, “True Religion and True Affections,” Kerr, 199-201).
