  • RJJensen, you've added a lot of good material. There is a serious flaw, though. Like its Liberal, it's written from the perspective of man-made religions. In the Christian Faith, man shapes himself to the image of God and not the other way around. To me at least, to say that Pentecostalism is descended from Methodism seems silly if not heresy. --RickD 18:55, 1 January 2009 (EST)
thanks for the nice words. I can assure you there is minimal liberal bias in my history. :) The history of Christianity is the history of people feeling a direct connection with God first joining and then splitting off from other religious people. The Methodist revivals of the 1830s attracted many holy people, and they formed Holiness circles. When the Methodist officialdom did not like their direction, they split off and formed new churches. That's the story I'm trying to tell and I'm trying also to explain the main points of their theology and the reasons for their growth. RJJensen 22:49, 1 January 2009 (EST)
