  FREE CHURCH OF SCOTLAND - LoveToKnow Article on FREE CHURCH OF SCOTLAND   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
From the Free Church point of view, the period from which the secessions under Ebenezer Erskine and Thomas Gillespie are dated was also characterized by numerous other abuses on the Churchs part which amounted to a practical surrender of the most important and distinctive principles of her ancient Presbyterian polity.
The Free Church always regarded herself as a National Church, and during this period she sought actively to be true to that character by providing church ordinances for the increasing population of Scotland and applying herself to the new problems of non-church-going, and of the changing habits of the people.
The church met with no sympathy or assistance at the hands of the United Free Church, and her work was conducted at first under considerable hardships, nor was her position one to appeal to the general popular sentiment of Scotland.

 Free Church of Scotland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Free Church of Scotland (1843-1900) was a Scottish denomination formed by the withdrawal of a large section of the established Church of Scotland in a schism known as the Disruption of 1843.
The Free Church was formed by the Evangelicals who broke from the Church of Scotland in 1843 protest against what they regarded as the state's encroachment on the spiritual independence of the Church.

They had concluded however that the Free Church was unable in many respects to carry out the purposes of the trusts, which, under: the verdict of the House of Lords, was a condition of their holding the property, and that there was a case for parliamentary interference.

The church was destroyed by fire in 1956 and rebuilt shortly after on a much smaller scale.
However the predominant church in Scotland was the Church of Scotland, and in many places the men who occupied the pulpit were not at all interested in the specifics of Bible teaching.
Going further back in history, when the Church of Scotland came into being after the Reformation (around 1560), a vital part of its constitution involved the recognition that the congregation choose their own minister (nowadays we would simply call this democracy).

 Frederick Douglass, The Free Church of Scotland and American Slavery
Douglass continued by referring to the Free Church taking the slave money, and saying that their very members, when they looked up to their meeting-houses and reflected that they were built with the price of blood, would yet compel their clergy to send back the blood stained money.
Douglass then referred to the argument of the Free Church that the slaves were favoured with religious instruction, and said he would give them a sketch of a sermon which he had often heard preached.
He pourtrayed in a happy and sarcastic style the encouragement afforded by the countenance of the Free Church to these American slaveholders; and contrasted with it the very different conduct of the celebrated John Wesley and others, of whom he spoke in warm and grateful terms for their labours on behalf of the slave.
