John Wesley: "It is impossible for any that have it, to conceal the religion of Jesus Christ... As well may men think to hide a city, as to hide a Christian; yea, as well may they conceal a city set upon a hill, as a holy, zealous, active lover of God and man."


He goes on to say that "it is true, men who love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil, [Jn 3:19] will take all possible pains to prove that the light which is in you is darkness. They will say evil, all manner of evil, falsely, of the good which is in you; they will lay to your charge that which is farthest from your thoughts, which is the very reverse of all you are, and all you do. And your patient continuance in well-doing, your meek suffering all things for the Lord's sake, your calm, humble joy in the midst of persecution, your unwearied labor to overcome evil with good, will make you still more visible and conspicuous than you were before... A secret, unobserved religion, cannot be the religion of Jesus Christ."
