A Church Position Against Slavery

A notice from the Christian Reflector, tells of action taken by the Baptist Church in Royalston  Centre, Mass.  The resolution, passed by the church, names slavery as “a great moral evil, and a sin against God of the blackest dye, especially when practiced by those who profess the followers of the meek and lowly Jesus.”…. The church will not “invite a slaveholding minister to enter the desk, nor a slaveholding professor to sit with us at our communion table.”
