Dorcas, another former priest wrote this as well, http://www.jesus-is-lord.com/bart.htm (Pilgrimage From Rome). Being an ex-Methodist, SteveR, I would point out Wesley got somethings wrong, like his two- (or three?) step conversion process, "... While the Wesleys (John & Charles) could not be defined as Pentecostals, their theology laid the foundation upon which the Pentecostal movement would be built. Principally, it was the Methodist view that sanctification was a second work of grace, separate from salvation, coupled with the Holiness belief of a third experience, the "Baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire,..." So, there might be little doubt that John & Charles were believers, they probably could really tell who a believer was themselves. http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Psychology/char/more/pente.htm (Pentecostalism).
Stephenie Simon wrote: The other half of respondents were asked the same question, but with the term ‚ÄúCommon Core‚ÄĚ stripped out; they were simply asked to weigh in on ‚Äústandards for reading and math that are the same across the states.‚ÄĚ Like magic, support for the standards soared, back up to 68 percent ‚ÄĒ and Republicans were just as enthusiastic as Democrats.
The Education Next poll also asked people who said they‚Äôd heard of the Common Core a series of true/false questions about the standards. Huge majorities got them wrong, mistakenly insisting, for instance, that the federal government mandates the use of the standards and that the Common Core strips away local control over textbooks.

Why John UK, you might have gotten it, the translators of the KJV used these verses to explain why they put out a new translation,
1 Corinthians 14:9 So also you, unless you utter by the tongue speech that is clear, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air. 1 Corintians 14:11 If then I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be to the one who speaks a barbarian, and the one who speaks will be a barbarian to me. ---NASB
and of course that is why people sensibly knew that the KJV had to be replaced!
