Black Tan A Collection of Essays and Excursions on Slavery Culture War and Scripture in America review ô 3 If we want to understand culture wars on the contemporary American scene we must first come to grips with the American culture wars of the nineteenth century That our nation did not remove slavery in a biblical way helps explain many of our contemporary social evils But who is ualified to talk about such things What is a biblical view of racism Why do the biblical answers to such uestions so infuriate the radical left and the radical right This collection of essays. Everyone kept telling me Doug Wilson supports slavery and they pointed to a book which he wrote over a decade ago Slavery As It Was there was a counterpoint written by two professors from Idaho University Slavery As It Wasn t That book is out of print because of major citation errors by his co author In the interest of knowing exactly what he says on these issues I found and purchased Black Tan A Collection of Essays and Excursions on Slavery Culture War and Scripture in America which may win the award for the worst font choice of any book I ve ever read an expansion of his own part of the original Slavery As It Was Racial reconciliation is important to me and racism must be rooted out in our country and especially in our churches You can read what I have said about race related issues elsewhereSummary Slavery in the South was an evil that needed to be abolished and God judged our country for not doing so but the way in which slavery was abolished in the United States was contrary to Scripture and cost us over 600000 lives He argues against large scale violence to cure social ills So for instance he would argue we shouldn t have killed each other to abolish the societal evil of slavery and so we must not kill each other to rid our society of eually contemptible societal ills like abortion The Civil War allowed our Constitution to be turned upside down limits on Federal rights move to limits on States s rights and allowed social evils like abortion gay marriage etc to flourish in our current society Here are his main points1 Slavery was evil and part of the falleness of humanity2 Scripture doesn t condone slavery as practiced in the South but it also doesn t excommunicate slaver owners in the early church3 The United States didn t abolish slavery according to Scriptural precepts4 Jesus won racial reconciliation on the cross and it s a positive good5 Black Confederates fought for the South and contributed to Southern society although resentment and sin separation of families was present there was comparatively to slavery in Caribbean or Brazil genuine affection in some cases

Black Tan A Collection of Essays and Excursions on Slavery Culture War and Scripture in America review ô 3 Lays out some of the answers from a view unashamed of historic biblical absolutism The Reverend Douglas Wilson may not be a professional historian as his detractors say but he has a strong grasp of the essentials of the history of slavery and its relation to Christian doctrine Indeed sad to say his grasp is a great deal stronger than that of most professors of American history whose distortions and trivializations disgrace our college classrooms And the Reverend M. As much as I agree with many of Doug s principles having no problem texts no homo marriage yay state s rights etc Pastor Wilson does not build or document a strong enough case for his view of southern slavery to persuade me that it was not an apocalyptic evil see uote below I am also wondering if Dabney would be portrayed as a good guy or a bad guy in high school Christian history books and then I would ask the same about Martin Luther King When I look at the South and Dabney in particular I have a hard time seeing the day when slavery was peaceably going to end via gospel means without a war or some great prophetic voice rising up to condemn the practice Where were all these preachers Why were the pulpits so complicit with slavery Is it really worthwhile to identify with such a hypocritical bunch I don t see the benefitIf Joel McDurmon has gotten the facts straight in his book on slavery in Christian America then I must disagree with Wilson s historical conclusions about the parallels to New Testament slaveryKey uotePg 58If the institution of slavery as it was actually practiced in the South had been one of horror upon horror an apocalyptic evil then of course the New Testament strictures on masters and slaves would not apply because these strictures were not written for times of apocalyptic evil but rather for normal sinners But if the antebellum South was made up of normal sinners trying to make a profit by farming and not by fiends running death camps from Georgia to Missouri then the New Testament reuired do apply straight across
