Lecture VI: the abstract principle of slavery discussed on Scripture grounds, and misrepresentations of the principle examined.

  • The true subjective right of self-control defined according to the Scriptures
  • -- the abstract principle of slavery sanctioned by the Scriptures -- the Roman government -- Dr. Wayland's Scripture argument examined and refuted -- the positions of Dr. Channing and Prof. Whewell examined and refuted.

the inquiry, if the institution of domestic slavery existing amongst us agrees in its details with the teachings of the Holy Scriptures, is reserved for a future lecture. We now inquire how far it agrees with the Holy Scriptures in its great fundamental principles?--the abstract principles which, thus far, have been shown to be right.

We, of course, acknowledge the full authority of the Scriptures. Although not a formal philosophical treatise, the Bible embodies no other than the profoundest principles both of mental and moral science; and all its teachings are in accordance
