The first split in the Church of Scotland was the Resolutioner-Protester controversy in the 1650's. An introduction to the controversy is on the webpage.

This sad division brought out interesting theological controversies concerning: civil resistance, passive and active obedience, the unity of the Church, grounds for separation, social covenanting, the nature of the Church, lawful (and unlawful) alliances and the right (or not-right) of continued protesting, amongst other disputed points.

Read the tracts written by each side. First read the side that you initially agree with less: you may get surprised. There is a reason why godly and learned men fell out on both sides.

The page also contains enough historical resources on the subject (where historical info is hard to come by) to last you a few years.


I will add more to the page as I come across it. If any have suggestions for additional resources, please send them my way.

May the Lord bless you in these things.
