Week Two_The Wesleyan Quadrilateral

As Wesleyan's we have a distinct way of viewing and interpreting the world. This is commonly known as the Wesleyan Quadrilateral. During our discussion the analogy of the body was used to describe each portion and function of the quadrilateral. The analogy is as follows:

Scripture = Vital Organs
Head = Reason
Arms and Hands = Tradition
Legs = Experience

The key to understanding the quadrilateral is to remember that Scripture is always supreme. Our Reason, Tradition, and Experience should all be bolstered by the teachings and principles of the Scriptures.

As always, leave a comment or question!
