Gorʹham Controversy

.

This arose out of the refusal of the bishop of Exeter to institute the Rev. Cornelius Gorham to the vicarage of Brampford Speke, “because he held unsound views on the doctrine of baptism.” Mr. Gorham maintained that “spiritual regeneration is not conferred on children by baptism.” After two yearsʹ controversy, the Privy Council decided in favour of Mr. Gorham, (1851).
