Montanus 150 AD

Montanus opposed formalism in the church and boldly intimidated Christians by claiming his followers were more spiritual than those who had only the "dead letter" of the Scriptures. (Earle E. Cairns, Christianity Through the Centuries (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1954), 110- 11.) (Charismatic Chaos, John F. MacArthur, 1991, p. 74)

Charles Wesley

In fact, he [Charles Wesley] regarded Montanists as "real, scriptural Christians" and Montanus himself as "one of the best men then upon the earth." The reason for the early withdrawal of the charismatic gifts was that "dry, formal, orthodox men" had begun to "ridicule" those gifts they did not themselves possess and to "decry them all as either madness or imposture." (Wesley, Journai, III, 496; Wesley, Works, ed. John Emory (New York, 1856), VI, 556.) (The Charismatic Movement, 1975, Michael P. Hamilton, p 80)
