If I (Kervin Mathumbu) must say, we a lot more arminianist but often dispar on the subject debate when considering how George Whitefield and John Wesley (who were contemporaries and held onto either) could not convince each other and yet held each other’s work in great honor until separated by death. Yes this seems to suggest to me that the Lord was not pleased to intervene despite that he seemed to generally work mightily in each ones’ ministry of gospel evangelism. Leaving me wondering if they were perhaps meant to thus be each other’s thorns – to the humbling of their persons.
