God, Jesus and the Bible Approve of Slavery

Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America
“(Slavery) was established by decree of Almighty God…it is sanctioned in the Bible, in both Testaments, from Genesis to Revelation… it has existed in all ages, as been found among the people of the highest civilization, and in nations of the highest proficiency in the arts.”

He was not alone in his feelings. In fact, he may have gleaned this belief from his pastor or minister! Many pastors at the time espoused the same belief as Jefferson and preached this belief from the pulpit!

Reverend R. Furman (a South Carolina Baptist Minister in the 19th century)
“The right of holding slaves is clearly established in the Holy Scriptures, both by precept and example.”
