the Week of Proper 20 / Ordinary 25
Charles Buck Theological Dictionary
A sect which derived its denomination from Uke-Wallies, a native of Friesland, who published his sentiments in 1637. He entertained a favourable opinion of the eternal state of Judas and the rest of Christ's murderers. His argument was this, that the period of time which extended from the birth of Christ to the descent of the Holy Ghost was a time of deep ignorance, during which the Jews were destitute of divine light; and that, of consequence, the sins and enormities which were committed during this interval were in a great measure excusable, and could not merit the severest displays of the divine justice. This denomination strictly adhered to the doctrine of the Mennonites.
