Why Believers Should Not Sing Charles Wesley’s Hymns In The Assembly

The world He suffered to redeem:
For all He hath the atonement made;
For those that will not come to Him
The ransom of His life was paid!

O for a trumpet voice
On all the world to call!
To bid their hearts rejoice
In Him who died for all!
For all my Lord was crucified,
For all, for all my Saviour died!

O let Thy love my heart constrain,
Thy love for every sinner free,
That every fallen soul of man
May taste the grace that found out me;
That all mankind with me may prove
Thy sovereign, everlasting love

(Charles Wesley’s blasphemous hymn against Christ’s particular, efficacious atonement and the irresistible grace of the Holy Spirit)

In another hymn he writes:

Take back my interest in Thy blood,
Unless it streamed for all the race!

(Source: Charles Wesley – by Frank Colquhoun. From “Hymns on God’s everlasting love”)

Sinners, abhor the fiend:
His other Gospel hear—
“The God of truth did not intend
The thing His words declare;
He offers grace to all,
Which most cannot embrace,
Mocked with an effectual call
And insufficient grace.”

(Source: “Hymns on God’s everlasting love” – By Charles Wesley)

Oh Horrible Decree
Worthy of whence it came!
Forgive their hellish blasphemy
Who charge it on the Lamb.

The righteous God consigned
Them over to their doom,
And sent the Saviour of mankind
To damn them from the womb;

To damn for falling short
Of what they could not do
For not believing the report
Of that which was not true.

(Excerpt from the blasphemous hymn – “oh horrible decree”)

  1. The quote from the second hymn may be found in “Hymns on God’s Everlasting Love” where we also read:

    Sinners, abhor the fiend:
    His other Gospel hear—
    “The God of truth did not intend
    The thing His words declare;
    He offers grace to all,
    Which most cannot embrace,
    Mocked with an effectual call
    And insufficient grace.”

  2. I don’t understand? What is the particular, efficacious atonement? I don’t think I’ve ever heard this terminology. Is this term from a particular denomination?

  3. Rose, otherwise known as Particular or Limited Atonement , it is a doctrine that defines the atonement for sin was for those that were predestined to be saved by grace. Wesly , and many others , preach a false gospel that Christ died for every man , woman and child, a gospel that cannot be supported from scripture.
