​​Without Vision the People Perish Proverbs 29:18

Moses the First Methodist ?

Wesley taught about Methodism:  "We aver, it is the one, old religion:  as old as the Reformation, as old as Christianity, as old as Moses, as old as Adam."  January 5, 1761

Moses would have been the first person to practice the method laid down in the Bible as he wrote the first 5 books.


 A Methodist, one that lives according to the method laid down in the Bible.
