Ignorance: Possible in Most Constant Hearers
Samuel Wesley visited one of his parishioners as he was upon his dying bed: a man who had never missed going to church in forty years. 'Thomas, where do you think your soul will go?'
'Soul! soul!' said Thomas.
'Yes, sir,' said Mr. Wesley, 'do you not know what your soul is?'
'Ay, surely,' said Thomas; 'why, it is a little bone in the back that lives longer than the body.'
'So much,' says John Wesley, who related it on the authority of Dr. Lupton, who had it from his father, 'had Thomas learned from hearing sermons, and exceedingly good sermons, for forty years.': Anecdotes of the Wesleys. By The Rev. J. B. Wakeley.
