In a word, if any kind of slavery can be ...
by Samuel Hopkins

In a word, if any kind of slavery can be vindicated by the Holy Scriptures,
we are already sure our making and holding the Negroes our slaves,
as we do, cannot be vindicated by any thing we can find there,
but is condemned by the whole of divine revelation.
- Samuel Hopkins

However, I am willing to hear what you can produce
from Scripture in favor of any kind of slavery.
- Samuel Hopkins

Willingness to be damned for the glory of God.
- Samuel Hopkins

God saw fit, for wise reasons to allow the people of
Israel thus to make and possess slaves;
but is this any license to us to enslave any of our fellow-men,
to kill any of our fellow-men whom we please and are able to destroy,
and take possession of their estates?
- Samuel Hopkins

 

These Scriptures, therefore, are infinitely far from
justifying the slavery under consideration;
for it cannot be made to appear that one in a thousand
of these slaves has done any thing to forfeit his own liberty.
- Samuel Hopkins

If it be not a sin, an open, flagrant violation of
all the rules of justice and humanity,
to hold these slaves in bondage, it is indeed folly
to put ourselves to any trouble and expense in order to free them.
- Samuel Hopkins

Furthermore, the slaves cannot be put into a more wretched situation,
ourselves being judges, and the community cannot take
a more lively step to escape ruin,
and obtain the smiles and protection of Heaven.
- Samuel Hopkins
