Disputations to be Avoided
Romans 14:1-12
Him that is weak in the faith receive you, but not to doubtful disputations.…

John Wesley, a man whose bitterest enemy could not fairly accuse him of indifference to the doctrines and faith "once delivered to the saints," wrote thus liberally and large-heartedly to a correspondent: "Men may die without any opinions, and yet be carried into Abraham's bosom; but if we be without love, what will knowledge avail? I will not quarrel with you about opinions. Only see that your heart be right toward God, and that you know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, and love your neighbours, and walk as your Master walked, and I ask no more. I am sick of opinions. Give me a good and substantial religion, a humble, gentle love of God and man."
