Plain Account of Christian Perfection



Author:Wesley, John (1703-1791)
Description:This book is an account of John Wesley's journey to understanding the doctrine of Christian perfection. Perfection is, according to Wesley, "purity of intention, dedicating all the life to God," In this book, he gives a numbered list, in chronological order, of the steps he took toward grasping the doctrine. He concludes that the belief is based on Matthew 22.36-40 ("'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?' Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself'"). Perfect love is the basis of Wesley's perfection doctrine, and it comes only through sanctification by grace alone. Any reader interested in delving into the doctrine or desiring to live a more Christ-like life should start with this Methodist classic by John Wesley.
