  1. “Tertullian is the John Wesley of the 2nd and 3rd centuries”…?
    “It is not permitted for a woman to speak in the church, nor to offer the Eucharist, nor to claim for herself a share in any masculine function– least of all, in the priestly office” Tertullian.
    Very un-Wesleyian…unless we’re talking about Wesley’s wife…. 🙂

  2. I guess Tertullian admired them too. Even though they had women performing prophecy. Seems as though these leaders all changed their minds depending upon which way the wind blows.

  3. Perhaps Wesley should have stayed with celibacy, though. I was rather shocked at his bitter relationship with his wife. On face value, you and I were more successful than Wesley in relationships. That’s why I have a problem elevating a leader to prophet status.
