Grace always has about it the scent of scandal.
For the next six years he suffered rejection after rejection at the hands of various bishops and archbishops of the Church of England. His trouble was that he was suspected of the heinous crime of "enthusiasm." This was a code word inside the established church for showing too much partiality toward Methodism.
"I am a great sinner," said the dying Newton, "but Christ is a great Savior."
I do not mean that the truth is preached in every church and meeting through the county, but in many, perhaps in more proportionably than in any other part of the land and with greater effect both as to numbers and as to the depth of the work in particular persons.
Note: Interesting that there was such an obvious problem with the truth being preached. This seems like a statement I would expect to hear today... except for the disproprtionally more part.
