If unanimity cannot be secured on any question, it will be referred by the members of the Commission to their respective Governments.
At the diet of 1605 Sigismund and his partisans endeavoured so far to reform the Polish constitution as to substitute a decision by a plurality of votes for unanimity in the diet.
They all wished for a unanimity and harmony impossible to obtain; and being unable to convince they destroyed one another.
But, in contrast with Congregationalism, when they elect and "call" a minister their action has to be sustained by the presbytery, which judges of his fitness for that particular sphere, of the measure of the congregation's unanimity, and of the adequacy of financial support.
