Collier, Thomas

Collier, Thomas an English Baptist minister, was born about 1600. For some time he preached with great success in the island of Guernsey, although his enemies spoke in bitter terms of him. In 1645 Mr. Collier, in order to vindicate himself, published Certain Queries or Points, now in Controversy, Examined, in which he maiintained, like Roger WiIliams, that magistrates have no power whatever to establish Church government, or to compel any persons to observe the government of Christ. He was the author of several other works of a controversial character. See Haynes, Baptist Cyclop. 1:178. (J.C.S.)
