A Sermon by Rev. Chris Jorgensen Preached October 7, 2018 Matthew 5:43-48 Let me just start off with total transparency: you have not come to a fair fight. John Wesley is going to win this thing because 1) I am totally biased and 2) you are in a Methodist church after all – one of the many denominations that arose directly from the leadership of John Wesley.
