In this episode we will continue to discuss how legalism distracts Christians from true holiness. We will specifically focus on different regulations and rules that people are told they need to follow in order to be “holy.” We will then look at what John Wesley thought regarding two specific things that groups tend to put regulations on: dress and alcohol. What were the views of Wesley on dress codes? Did he ever make a dress code for the Methodists? What were Wesley’s views on alcohol? What were his thoughts on hard alcohol? What about beer and wine? You may be surprised what you find out in this episode. We will wrap things up with a discussion on Romans 14 and how love should guide our Christian liberties.
