No Baptists in Heaven

George Whitefield spoke for Evangelicals of every generation when preaching from the courthouse balcony in Philadelphia, he raised his eyes to the heavens and cried out:

“Father Abraham, whom have you in heaven? Any Episcopalians?


Any Presbyterians?


Any Independents or Methodists?

No, no, no!

Whom have you there?

We don’t know those names here. All who are here are Christians.

Oh, is this the case? Then God help us to forget party names and to become Christians in deed and truth.”
