Samuel Rogers Andrew (1787-1858) Congregational minister in Connecticut. "The writer of the following remarks does not profess to have entered minutely into every point in theology, which the restless spirit of controversy has of late drawn into discussion... And yet, he believes that he has noticed the great points... The great points in the controversy may be reduced to two; the nature of sin, and the reasons of its being permitted, under the divine government... The position, that sin consists in voluntary and intelligent action, and not in something distinct from the will was maintained by Dr. Taylor, in the Christian Spectator for 1823, and in his Concio ad Clerum, and by Dr. Fitch, in two published sermons, delivered before the faculty and students of Yale College. Mr. Harvey of Colchester, was the principal writer on the opposite side. He was understood to maintain, that there is in man a nature, or propensity, lying back of the will, and distinct from it, which is itself sinful and for which mankind may justly be regarded as responsible, and are so regarded by their Maker; so that, antecedently to personal, intelligent, voluntary action, man is a guilty being, and liable, in strict justice, to eternal punishment...”--pp. 1-2.
