"MONSTROUS" PREACHING


In the 18th Century, Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntington invited the Duchess of Buckingham to come and hear George Whitfield preach.


After listening to Whitfield, the Duchess wrote to the Countess of Huntington about the Gospel that Whitefield and his fellow "Methodists" preached in the following terms:


"It is monstrous to be told that you have a heart as sinful as the common wretches that crawl on the earth. This is highly offensive and insulting; and I cannot but wonder that your Ladyship should relish any sentiments so much at variance with high rank and good breeding."


(George Whitefield and the Great Awakening -- John Pollock p.95).
