James Morison (18161893), minister of a United Secession cong., was suspended from it 1841 for teaching that Christ made atonement not only for the elect but for all mankind. Later his father (Robert Morison; d. 1855), Alexander Cumming Rutherford, and John Guthrie were also suspended. These 4 pastors and 9 laymen, representing 3 chs. and 2 preaching stations, formed the Evangelical Union at Kilmarnock, Scot., 1843. Other suspended pastors and students later joined the movement. Those who shared Morisonian views were called Morisonians; their position was called Morisonianism.
