A "Politically Incorrect" Gospel

You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work. And go not only to those that need you, but to those that need you most…It is not your business to preach so many times, and to take care of this or that society; but to save as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance.”

–- John Wesley

…kind of takes the steam out of the whole "Social Gospel" thing.

Great quote, thanks! I go to a Methodist church and have trouble getting people fired up about evangelism. I actually had to work to convince mission trip leaders that we should have a portion of the training devoted to sharing the Gospel. I won, which is good news. I'll be leading the training with this quote!
