From PETER J. LINEHAM: THE SIGNIFICANCE OF J.G. DECK
Deck was friendly with Henry Young, a judge in the Bombay Residency who had been in India since 1822, and was the third son of Sir Samuel Young. The subsequent behaviour of Young and Deck and Young’s later links with Open Brethren suggest that they had been inspired by Groves’ call in his little book Christian Devotedness for Christians to abandon worldly security and thus experience the grace of God in its fullness. In 1834 Young resigned from his position and refused to accept the pension to which he was entitled. Others took the same stand. J. G. Deck was troubled in his conscience about whether a Christian could be a soldier, and so he resigned from the position his father had purchased for him.
