«Antinomianism: A Modern Heresy, Summarized and Refuted by William D. Pratney Last Updated 07-02-2012 (British Calendar System) Taken and Adapted from ...»

-- [ Page 5 ] --

Isaac Tayler, one of his contemporaries called him "a saint, as unearthly a being as could tread the earth at all." John Wesley, who had intended to hand over the care of the Methodist Societies to him at his death, called Fletcher "the most unblameable man I know" in America or Europe. However, Wesley outlived Fletcher. Fletcher and his wife Mary co-pastored the Anglican parish of Madeley Woods. (6) It was said that, “when the atheist philosopher Voltaire was asked who was the most Christ-like person in the modern world, he replied without hesitation, ‘John Fletcher of Madeley.’” In John Wesley’s funeral sermon for Fletcher, he remarked that John Fletcher was the holiest man he had ever met or expected to meet this side of eternity. (5) Fletcher became the initial systematic theologian of the Methodists. Of Fletcher it is said, "When he came to Madeley, there were no Christians; when he died, there were no sinners." (6) If wisdom is justified by her children, and a tree is known by its fruit, history's record of John Fletcher's life on earth shows the sound, biblical wisdom of his doctrine, and the good fruit of his faith.
