JOHN NELSON DARBY: CALVINIST
Darby defended Calvinist  doctrines when they came under attack from within the Church in which he once served. His biographer Goddard  states, "Darby indicates his approval of the doctrine of the Anglican Church as expressed in Article XVII of the Thirty-Nine Articles"
Darby is noted in the theological world as the father of "dispensationalism", later made popular in the United States by Cyrus Scofield's Scofield Reference Bible. However, Darby held a view that would today be called hyperdispensationalist; rather than identifying Pentecost as the "birth of the church",
Darby traveled widely in Europe and Britain in the 1830s and 1840s, and established many Brethren assemblies. He gave 11 significant lectures in Geneva in 1840 on the hope of the church (L'attente actuelle de l'église.) [see references] These established his reputation as a leading interpreter of biblical prophecy. The beliefs he disseminated then are still being propagated (in various forms) at such places as Dallas Theological Seminary and Bob Jones University and by authors and preachers such as Hal Lindsey and Tim LaHaye.
By 1832, this group had grown and began to identify themselves as a distinct Christian assembly. As they traveled and began new assemblies in Ireland and England, they formed the movement now known as the Plymouth Brethren.
PLYMOUTH BRETHREN & ALEISTER CROWLEY
His mother, Emily Bertha Bishop (1848--1917), drew roots from a Devonshire-Somerset family and was despised by her son, whom she described as "the Beast", a name that he revelled in. His father, who had been born a Quaker, had converted to the Exclusive Brethren, a more conservative faction of a Christian denomination known as the Plymouth Brethren, as had his mother when she married him. His father was particularly devout, spending his time as a travelling preacher for the sect and reading daily to his wife and son a chapter from the Bible after breakfast.
On 5 March 1887, when Crowley was eleven, his father died of tongue cancer. Aleister would later describe this as a turning point in his life, and he always maintained some admiration for his father, describing him as "his hero and his friend". Inheriting his father's wealth, he was subsequently sent to Ebor School in Cambridge, a private Plymouth Brethren school, but was expelled for misbehaviour. Following this he attended Malvern College and then Tonbridge School, both of which he despised and soon left after only a few terms, instead beginning studies at Eastbourne College. He became increasingly skeptical about Christianity, pointing out logical inconsistencies in the Bible to his religious teachers and went against the Christian morality of his upbringing, for instance embracing sex both with girls whom he met and by visiting female prostitutes, from one of whom he contracted gonorrhea.
