Die Trennung der grossen Erweckungsprediger des 18. Jahrhunderts, George Whitefield und John Wesley, bieten zeitlosen Anschauungsunterricht. Iain H. Murray fasst in seinem Aufsatz zusammen:
Doctrinal differences between believers should never lead to personal antagonism. Error must be opposed even when held by fellow members of Christ, but if that opposition cannot co-exist with a true love for all saints and a longing for their spiritual prosperity then it does not glorify God nor promote the edification of the Church.
