In a letter to his brother Charles in June 1766, the Arminian evangelist John Wesley, now in his sixties, wrote, "I do not love God. I never did. Therefore I never believed, in the Christian sense of the word. ... I never had any other evidence of the eternal or invisible world than I have now; and that is none at all, unless such as faintly shines from reasonâ€™s glimmering ray. I have no direct witness (I do not say, that I am a child of God, but) of anything invisible or eternal." See the SWRB blog on SermonAudio at http://ow.ly/kk2wt or http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details3.asp?ID=13559 for more context for the quote above, as well more information on other surprising and disturbing beliefs held by John Wesley. For example, you will see that "Wesley taught that unconverted Muslims and other heathen will be accepted by God on the basis of their good works" and also wrote, "Prayer for the dead, the faithful departed, in the advocacy of which I conceive myself clearly justified."
