      What are the weaknesses and strengths of his hymns? The Established Church was, in a sense, an instrument of the government of the State. Many were promised their lives on condition of conforming to Popery, but any who recanted were told that, being now in the true Church, they must be killed at once lest they might afterwards fall from the faith. Down crossed the sea to receive the Sacrament at Stranraer", and on another how "twenty-eight children were baptised at one time". Cromwell's State Church was the Church of England. The theological distinctives of John Calvin lie primarily in degrees of emphasis.

      Action was taken in the episcopal courts both against Presbyterian ministers who performed the marriage ceremony and against the people so married. Many were promised their lives on condition of conforming to Popery, but any who recanted were told that, being now in the true Church, they must be killed at once lest they might afterwards fall from the faith. Tens of thousands of these refugees came through New York City, where their evacuation was processed by the British Army, leading up to Evacuation Day on 25 November Three facts should be remembered concerning the constitution of this Assembly : i with the exception of two, who were French Reformed, all the divines were in Episcopal orders in the Anglican Church, ii all members' took the vow, "I do solemnly promise and vow, in the presence of Almighty God, That in this Assembly, whereof I am a member, I will maintain nothing in point of doctrine, but what I believe to be most agreeable to the Word of God; nor in point of discipline but what may make most for God's glory, and the peace and good of this Church" ; For more background, see Dunmore's Proclamationa promise by the royal governor of the British Colony of Virginia to grant emancipation freedom to slaves who left rebel masters and joined the Crown's forces. During the reign of Queen Annethe Test Act was passed inmaking the taking of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper according to the rites of the Anglican Church a condition of holding any office, civil or military, under the Crown.

      The associated ministers appear to have been jealous of their rights, because, inthe Synod of Ulster directed the Presbytery of Belfast to apologise to the "Presbytery of Dublin" that is, the presbyters in Dublin for not having given notice of the intended ordination of Mr. Neither woman nor infant was spared. See also: List of Presbyterian churches in North America Evolution of Presbyterianism in the United States Even before Presbyterianism spread with immigrants abroad from Scotland, there were divisions in the larger Presbyterian family. Presbyterian marriages were denounced as "licences for sin", the children of such marriages were described as "bastards", and ministers and people were brought before the bishops' courts and excommunicated as "fornicators". The opponents of toleration failed to see that a privilege of this sort is more easily given than revoked, so this Act was the first of a long series, there being twenty-four in the reign of the first three Georges. Meanwhile the Irish civil war, which began incontinued, so in August,Cromwell landed in Ireland; and 'ere he left he wrote his name "in blood" in the annals of Ireland, especially in connection with the massacres at Drogheda and Wexford.
