That's why people in the South loved slavery. - Kern Why did people in the north oppose slavery? It may seem like an absurd question, especially given the increasing enthusiasm among evangelical Christians for the abolition of modern-day slavery. (Be sure to check out Refuse to Do Nothing by Shayne Moore and Kimberly McOwen Yim, pictured above.) But it’s a question that haunted our evangelical predecessors in the 19th century as they took to newspapers, pulpits, street corners, and staterooms to debate whether or not the Bible supported the abolition movement to free African slaves in the United States. “The tree of Abolition is evil,” declared Reverend Henry Van Dyke in 1860, “and only evil—root and branch, flower and leaf, and fruit; that it springs from, and is nourished by an utter rejection of the Scriptures.” Having lived in the South all my life, I’ve long been aware of the stain of slavery and segregation on our national conscience, and I’ve known for some time that many Christians appealed to Scripture to support their ownership of slaves. (This is why we have the Southern Baptist Convention, for example.) But it wasn’t until picking up Mark Noll’s excellent book, The Civil War as a Theological Crisis, that I familiarized myself with the rhetoric and logic of the anti-abolition movement.
