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

The Duchess wrote to the Countess of Huntington about the Gospel that Whitefield and his fellow “Methodists” preached as follows:

“ 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.”

That letter tells us a lot about her and even one of her easy going acquaintances found her obnoxious.

Her pride closed her ears to the Gospel. For it is only when we realise that we are as "sinful as those common wretches" that we are open to the Gospel
