“Strangely Warmed”
Description
"Strangely Warmed": Whitefield, Toplady, Simeon and Wesley's Arminian Campaigns By Lee Gatiss. St Antholin lecture 2014. John Wesley is widely regarded as one of the prime movers of the Evangelical Revival of the 18th Century, so much so that opposition to Wesley is even now taken by some with little knowledge of Wesley’s actual teaching to be straightforward opposition to the gospel itself. However, an intriguing question is unearthed in this lecture, which explores the relationships between Wesley and Whitefield, Toplady and Simeon. Dr. Gatiss comes to the conclusion that in addition to being ‘strangely warmed’ by the gospel, Wesley became increasingly heated in his almost pathological opposition to Reformed Anglican doctrine. Gatiss argues that this has subsequently been systematically hushed up and played down by historians and hagiographers alike, and considers some lessons for those engaged in controversies today.
