Charles Spurgeon, a Baptist, on theological disagreements with the Wesley brothers, the founders of the Methodist Church:

"I am afraid that most of us are half asleep, and those that are a little awake have not begun to feel. It will be time for us to find fault with John and Charles Wesley, not when we discover their mistakes, but when we have cured our own. When we shall have more piety than they, more fire, more grace, more burning love, more intense unselfishness, then, and not till then, may we begin to find fault and criticize."

Seems like we might learn a little bit from that paragraph the next time we take up an issue of importance, or at least importance to us.

But that's just me (and Spurgeon) thinking thoughts...
