John Bampton (1690 - June 2, 1751) was an English churchman, for some time canon of Salisbury.

Bampton was a member of Trinity College, Oxford, where he graduated M.A. in 1712. He is now remembered chiefly because of the contents of his will, which directs that eight lectures shall be delivered annually at Oxford in the University Church on as many Sunday mornings in full term, "between the commencement of the last month in Lent term and the end of the third week in Act term, upon either of the following subjects: to confirm and establish the Christian faith, and to confute all heretics and schismatics; upon the divine authority of the Holy Scriptures; upon the authority of the writings of the primitive fathers, as to the faith and practice of the primitive Church; upon the divinity of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; upon the divinity of the Holy Ghost; upon the articles of the Christian faith as comprehended in the Apostles and Nicene Creeds."

The lecturer, who must be at least a Master of Arts of Oxford or Cambridge, was formerly chosen yearly by the heads of colleges, on the fourth Tuesday in Easter term, and no one can be chosen a second time. The Bampton Lectures, as they are known, began in 1780, and are still held, but not as often.

The Rev. Bampton,  was a B.A. and M.A. graduate of Trinity College, University of Oxford. Bampton served as prebendary (i.e., canon) at Salisbury Cathedral, 1718-1751, and through his will (below), he established the Bampton Lectureship, one of the most eminent lectureships on Protestant Christian theology. The Bampton Lectureship consists of eight lecture-sermons. The University of Oxford describes the Bampton Lectureship as follows:

The University [Oxford] in 1779 accepted a benefaction to establish the Bampton Lecturership, the holder of which is required to give eight divinity lecture sermons in Hilary and Trinity Full Terms annually (or, since 1910, biennially) in the Church of St Mary's. Although this is not specified in the original bequest, the lectures have traditionally been given on Sundays, and it is laid down in the present statute that they should be. . . . It is also now expedient to abolish the Sarum Lectures, which are considered to have become unnecessary in so far as since 1990 the Bampton Lecturership has been open to both men and women, and to suitable persons unconnected with churches within the Anglican Communion (Oxford University Gazette, 20 March 1997, University Agenda).

Since 1952, the Bampton Lectureship fund also supported the Sarum Lectureship in theology at the University of Oxford. In 1997, the Sarum Lectureship was abolished so that the Bampton Lectureship, and theology at Oxford in general, could receive greater acclaim and exposure.

why is that so many born-again,blood-washed,children of the most high God spend so much time bashing other believers just because they do not believe every jot and tittle just the way they believe, their brothers and sisters in Christ, the church? where in the bible does it say we all have to believe every doctrine the same way that you believe it?if we would worry more about winning souls and adding to the church , instead of tearing down others, then the world and christianity would be in a lot better condition.i see you allspending all this time and effort critiquing others belief, but i have to ask how many souls have you won for Jesus Christ this year? How many people have you snatched from hell in the past 11 months?how many people have you shared what God has done for you? just food for thought, BROTHER
