Methodist’s teaching can be categorized into four very particular ideas:
1. All need to be saved – original sin.
2. All can be saved – Universal salvation
3. All can know they are saint – assurance
4. All can be saved completely – Perfection.
Original Sin: Everyone is born sinful, these means that they are born with a built-in urge to do bad things and to disobey God. This is an inherited spiritual diseases or defect in human nature.Original Sin explains why their is so much wrong in a world created by a perfect God, and why people need to have their souls saved by God. “Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread through to all man, because all sinned.”
