Tonight’s Final Church History Lesson: The Great Awakening and the Methodists


Tonight we study John Wesley and George Whitefield, the preachers of the first Great Awakening and the founders of the Methodist Church. Their lifelong friendship suffered a break on account of disagreements over God’s sovereignty and free will. This isn’t the first time or the last time brothers have crossed each other over those doctrines. But can we learn from history?

promised last address of Calvin from his deathbed

With my whole soul I embrace the mercy which [God] has
exercised towards me through Jesus Christ, atoning for my
sins with the merits of his death and passion, that in this
way he might satisfy for all my crimes and faults, and blot
them from his remembrance. . . . I confess I have failed
innumerable times to execute my office properly, and had
not He, of His boundless goodness, assisted me, all that
zeal had been fleeting and vain. . . . For all these reasons, I
testify and declare that I trust to no other security for my
salvation than this, and this only, viz., that as God is the
Father of mercy, he will show himself such a Father to me,
who acknowledge myself to be a miserable sinner.
