Right Principles of Union

Right Principles of Union.

When the Original Seceders were admitted into the Free Church in 1852, Dr Candlish said—"To-night we stand out as uniting upon the ground of opposition to Erastianism on the one hand, and Voluntaryism page 35 on the other. (Loud cheers.) This is in substance—in short compass—the ground and foundation of our present union. "We stand out as united together upon this common opposition to Erastianism on the one hand, and Voluntaryism on the other. If we had not been practically testifying against Erastianism, our brethren would not have been prepared to join with us—(hear, hear, and cheers)—and if they not been practically testifying against Voluntaryism, and that in circumstances of peculiar difficulty and trial, I venture to say we-would not have been prepared to unite with them. (Renewed cheers.)"—Proceedings of Assembly, p. 19. Edinburgh: Greig & Son. 1852.
