Is the Cart before the Horse?

I heard someone say recently that social holiness will follow from inner holiness.

I’m not so sure.

Ok; it may work this way sometimes, but sometimes I believe inner holiness follows social holiness.

What do you think?

  1. It depends on what you mean by “inner holiness” & “social holiness.” Wesley was convinced that holiness was not a project we pursued on our own – even with God alone. His experience was the holiness (of any kind) didn’t happen except in the context of relationships.
