"Albert Barnes (1798-1870) ""Presbyterian clergyman and author, was a prominent figure in the contentions immediately preceding the division between the Old and New Schools of American Presbyterianism in 1837... In a sermon called ""The Way of Salvation,"" delivered Feb. 8, 1829, he denied that the sin of Adam is imputed to his posterity, thus opposing the position of Jonathan Edwards and coming into at least verbal disagreement with the Westminster Confession... Summoned to retract, Barnes refused and laid his case before the Assembly of 1831, which while mildly disapproving of the sermon, upheld Barnes' right to his pastorate. But Barnes' orthodoxy was now definitely suspect, and on the appearance of his Notes, Explanatory and Practical on the Epistle to the Romans, in 1835, Dr. George Junkin, an Old School leader, at once preferred charges against him. Barnes denied that he held any of the erroneous doctrines of which he was accused, and the Presbytery upheld him, but Junkin appealed to the Synod, which forthwith suspended him from the ministry until he should retract these errors. As Barnes could not well retract views which he had never expressed, he sat quietly for a year, a hearer in his own church, until the Assembly of 1836, in which the New School was predominant, vindicated him and restored him to his position.""--Dict.
