HENRY MELCHIOR MUHLENBERG (1711-1787), GermanAmerican Lutheran clergyman, was born in Einbeck, Hanover, on the 6th of September 1711.
He was educated in a school at Jesmond, kept by Mr Ivison, a clergyman of the church of England.
In that case a clergyman refused the communion 1 Stephen's Commentaries, bk.
After partially fulfilling the duties of the office for one session, he wa.s led to resume the charge of St George's, the clergyman who had been chosen by the congregation as his successor having died before entering on his work.
No rule of doctrine is to be ascribed to the church which is not distinctly and expressly stated or plainly involved in the written law of the Church, and where there is no rule, a clergyman may express his opinion without fear of penal consequences.
