Is Slavery a Sin?
Mr.' Eoitcb :
I answer no I Tbo Bible recog
nizes slavery as ono ot tho great tela
t;.oiis of lite, and "peaks of it in con
nection with the other groat relations
of life husband and wile, and parent
ard chihl. The philosophy of the
relation ol master and slave is found
mi the order of nature &ud the appoint
ment ol I'rovidence.
There was a wiso and beneficent
plan iu the creation of two distinct
races of men, set apart from each oth
er by so marked and impassable a
line of separation, 'lhe ravings of
I'anaticieir., and the madness and folly
of a religio-iufi'lulity, taught by

cannot permauently disturb tho plans
and purposes of Divine wisdom in
the relations of the two races to each
otiier.
That the Caucasian or white race
has, in the Divine purpose, been set
aoart as the dominant and mlinir ra.
ce, and the African as tho inferior
acd servde race, is as indisputable as
that the ono race is white and the
other black.
That the dominant and snnerinr
race will rule tbe servile aud the in
ferior is a philosophical fact that no
ouo can overlook but a fanatic or a
fool : for it is iust as imDossibla mop.
ally as it is physically, to make a
white man a uizzer as it is to make a
tiiger a white man. Nature in the

At the end of this chapter ho fur
ther says ;
"Tho conversion which tbo script
uro ruqnires, though it makes a most
essential change, in our souls in refer
ence to God, and in our works in re
ference both to God and man. make
none in our civil state; and if a man
is called, i. e. converted, in a state ol
slavery, he does not gain his manu
mission in consequence of his conver
sion ; ho stands iu tho same relation
both tj the Statu aud to his fellows
that be Btood iu before ; and is not to
assume any civil rights or privileges
in coneoqnonce of tho conversion of
his soul to God. Tbo Apostle decides
the matter in this chapter, and orders
that every man .sh mid abida in the
calling wherein he is culled."
Abraham Lincoln and tho infidel
preachers are njt for lull! ue i Ih ii lar

Dr. Clarke, in another place, f?ays:
"Christianity makes no ell nn rr a in
Uien's civil afl'.tirs, even a bIhvo did
not become a freeman bv Chrisfian

A brain hu 6ays :
"Tho Apostle informs the proprie
tor of thet.0 nbives, that they should
act itiwarus tiietn Doth accord inw to
justice and equity, for God. tneir
master required this of them, and
would at last call th em to ncpniinf f.ir
