      It is.

      Who is the subject Octavius is writing to?

      He is addressing the ideas that a) there are doctrines in the Bible (like predestination) that are not profitable to pay attention to generally, and b) holding the doctrine of predestination specifically is contrary to evangelism.

      1. Wesley says:
