Wesley Quotes on Trading Fairly

Occasionally John Wesley could be quite outspoken on local issues. A good example is his attempt to persuade Bristol not to build a theatre on the grounds it would prove a corrupting influence:

“Most of the present stage entertainments sap the foundation of all religion, as they naturally tend to efface all traces of piety and seriousness out of the minds of men… [and] they are peculiarly hurtful to a trading city, giving a wrong turn to youth… being directly opposite to the spirit of industry and close application to business…” John Wesley letter to Mayor and Corporation sent via Charles 20 Dec 1764

Passion and prejudice govern the world… It is our part, by religion and reason combined, to counteract them all we can.” John Wesley letter to Joseph Benson, 5 October 1770

“Help us to help each other, Lord, each other’s cross to bear; let each his friendly aid afford, and feel his brother’s care. Help us to build each other up, our little stock improve; increase our faith, confirm our hope, and perfect us in love.” Charles Wesley, Hymns and Sacred Poems 1742
