Summary
In the Wesleyan traditions, social religion is more interesting and more challenging. Social religion is a matter of being in relationship with God and with others, and it is a public matter, as religion, in John Wesley's words, "cannot subsist at all without society, without living and conversing" with other people.3 These others-and this is crucial-include not only other Christians but also those whom most Christians would rather avoid, like people who, according to Wesley, "do not obey, perhaps do not believe, the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ" and others who are hungry and naked.4 This insight is a major contribution of Wesleyan theology picked up by liberation theologies (many of them Wesleyan, as we shall see), and it turns many dominant understandings of the church upside down.5 Without such relationships there would be no real religion, and the gospel would make no difference. Pulling all stops, Wesley concludes that those who do not care about others "shall go away into everlasting fire."
