The Spirit and the Scripture: Transforming People and Cultures
The Wesleyan Quadrilateral is a lens for viewing the world as it relates to the role of the church in bringing about Justice. Wesley’s view of Sanctification is an integral part of doing justice. The results continue to live with us today. This view of Social Justice and Sanctification became the embodiment of the beginnings of the American Holiness Movement. Structural Evil was identified and advocacy was also a part of one’s faith life. Today the Spirit is calling through the Scriptures and empowering His people to do Kingdom work in this second decade of the 21st century. Only through the power of the Holy Spirit can redeeming work be done. It is happening!
