    The Methodists are much more apt to be socially more progressive, open-minded about theological matters and doctrine, and better educated. Baptists believe in immersion. The word Jude uses is agapais, the plural of agape. The United Methodist Church has been at the forefront of a number of internal theological and structural conflicts. Any person may speak who chooses.

    The late Dr. The love-feast is both begun and ended by singing and prayer; a travelling preacher presiding. Methodism cannot be regarded as being solely Wesleyan Arminian in doctrine; for the Calvinistic Methodists probably had equal followers, notably in the Bristol area and throughout southern Wales. Bishops also perform the important task of appointing the clergy to their ministerial work. Dallimore's excellent biography of George Whitefield gives credible evidence that the Methodist movement had its initial thrust through Whitefield also a member of the " Holy Club " -- while John Wesley was still laboring in America -- and before he was actually saved by the grace of God through the ministry of the Moravian, Peter Boehler. Other social issues generate controversy at the denominations' policymaking level, such as abortion, homosexuality, war and peace, economic and business matters, criminal justice including the death penalty, and international affairs.

The Moravians emigrated to the New World inand in John Wesley observed a Moravian Lovefeast in Savannah, Georgia, and was inspired to begin a similar celebration in the Methodist movement the following year.

Benediction: Associate Chaplain Rev. This bad behavior led Paul to say, "It is not the Lord's Supper that you eat" verse 20 —it was their own supper, and their gorging was dishonoring the Lord.
