  • Reverend Benjamin Morgan Palmer

  • Slavery a Divine Trust: Duty of the South to Preserve and Perpetuate it

  • The South’s providential trust “is to conserve and to perpetuate the institution of slavery as now existing….”

  • The South needs slavery to support its material interests.

  • White slave owners act as guardians of their black slaves. Blacks are like helpless children who the slave owner protects.

  • “Freedom would be their doom.”

  • Slaves “form parts of our households, even as our children….”

  • The world should FEAR abolition. The world is more dependent on slavery for its wealth than ever, and if slavery ends, the world economy will totter.

  • The South defends the cause of God and religion, since the “Abolition spirit is undeniably atheistic….”

POINT 1:

The Bible does not condemn slavery. However, it does condemn coveting another’s property, including another’s slaves.

POINT 2:

Abolitionists, such as Reverend Henry Ward Beecher, are inventing new sins when they claim that slavery is evil. By doing this they are insulting and exasperating “thousands of God-fearing, law-abiding citizens” and have pushed the country toward civil war.
