States having wickedly submitted to Bear Ibe disgrace and sin of a slave holding nation while they Lac used no adequate exe dons to remove this great evil from the land. The slave Trade which is carried on Between the different states of this Union and also Between the District of Columbia and the Southern states is the same in Pron Dpi and no less cruel in practice than the foreign traffic. It is therefore a glaring inconsistency to Brand the foreign slave Trade As piracy and allow of die internal traffic among our own citizens and we believe the time is near when the moral sense of the civilized world will regard All traffic in human fish As piracy. Slav the sin of the churches. Ave believe that the sin of american slavery to an Eno Rinous extent is the sin of the Christian churches both in the North and South a and that an awful responsibility is resting upon ministers the gospel with respect to this great evil and spec a upon such As Wolfl slaves of Statory solemnly believe that the professed christians of lie South together with their apologists at the Darth Are main supporters of slavery and that All Northern christians who neglect to lift up the warning voice and refuse to take sides against slavery Are by no Means innocent in this matter. If the Way of emancipation is to be prepared As we believe it is by moral Means then it is under of in a great measure for the churches to say Low Long slavery shall be continued in our coun by. We cannot but believe that the pulpit is a ully a flirty in this matter. Even in prayer the manacled slave is entirely forgotten in Many of the pulpits of this Christian land while they Are Gen rally thrown open to clerical slaveholders when they visit the free states. We would Here record our solemn judgment that those Niini sters who neglect to preach against slavery As against other National sins do not declare the whole counsel of god. We believe that gods ministers not Only but ought to oppose this system of Souli Nur on the said tui if we Are authorized to pull beast out of die pit on the Sabbath much More ought we to lift up the Down trodden of god on that Day. work of . Believing to As we do that slavery is one of the greatest sins in de Luhe land we cannot admit that ministers who front a conviction of duty devote themselves to writing and lecturing upon this shocking abomination a have a left the gospel to declaration of sent meets 0#the subject of slavery adopted by the con Venden of the ministers and Mcthers of the methodist episcopal Church held at Utica n. On the>2d and 3d of May 1838. Sin of Isfan Tjce 1. We believe that holding the human species As property is a cwt flagrant sin and that no circumstances can make it otherwise. For that which is morally wrong can never be politically Light and As the elementary principles of slavery Are in direct opposition to the principles of the Pel die Reform to human Law can justify for a single moment die Misti a of master and slave for the contrary a tried out would Justi Elia cements rather Man Ine criteria of moral conduct. We believe with or. Watson a that if it was wrong to steal men from Africa and reduce them to a state of Bonde it is for the same reason wrong to retain them in a state of slavery. If you condemn % first thief and the first receiver of stolen goods How will you justify those who knowing them to be. Stolen continue to retain them a he adds a i confess i cannot see How the perpetuation of an injury or by what poems i acknowledged wrong can be transmitted into a right by continuing it. My argument then is that if it was wrong to enslave the negroes it is wrong to keep them in helpless and vre believe with or. Wesley that a men buyers rank and degree Are exactly on a Leve with Raen steamers a a with president Fisk before the Wesleyan conference that a slavery is evil Only evil and that continually a with or. Bunting president of said conference that a slavery is Al essentially eternally and incurably president ways wrong ,. Wrong a a and Willi Adam Clark that a in Heathen countries slavery was in some sort excusable among christians it is an enormity and a crime for which perdition has scarcely an adequate slate of punishment a it follows we think from the above extract that the perpetuation of slavery is the highest kind of theft and Robery inasmuch As it robs its subjects not of their wages Only hut of their right to themselves also invading the rights of nature and of natures god and stripping immortal spirits made in the divine image of All then natural Rigi lib thus reducing men to things an making merchandise of souls for whom Christ died. Immediate Manei Kaiim immediate emancipation without expatriation we believe to be the duty of the master and the right of the slave. In this we think we Are Fuey sustained by our fathers. Or. Wesley cohort it slaveholders of whatever rank and degree to a a instant emancipation. Our own Church in 17 and As late As 1801, held to the safety of immediate emancipation and recommended it to slaveholders in our Church Lii As May be seen by referring to the minutes and former editions of our discipline. Avery a National sin. We consider slavery a great National sin and in Liose portions of our country which Are under the control of the get ral government a sin in which i the whole nation is involved.

Submit etl the fou owing Omidi Alv Resoluti that the clause of the 2d article of this society be struck our which admits a that each state in which slavery exists has by the constr tot on of the United states the exclusive right to legislate in regard tor its abolition in said state a the meeting was addressed by or. Stewart and Hon. W. Jay. A a the meeting adjourned to half past 3 of clock 18� reach politics. To plead the cause of the oppressed we main Tail is the a a Eppro in talc work Quot of a i utter of it Thrist and that to preach again so that oppression under a vetch two and a half a Lions Are groaning is to preach at least one important feature of the gospel in its purity. Kind treatment of coloured people we doubt not but an influence favourable to emancipation May be exerted on the minds of slaveholders by kind treatment of coloured people at the Orth. When slaveholders visit the free states it them see that coloured people Are treated with respect. We think there is too much evidence % lat the Negr Orl ing sprit is As prevalent in the it North As in the uth a blood people arc excluded from most of our colleges and academies from our trades and professions and from the inside of our steamboats and stage coaches. They arc put into one Corner of our churches and Are Seldom Sierra fitted to sit either at the lords table or any other with the Whites these things ought not so Tobe. We verily believe that what is usually termed the or Tif Isicc a gait color is nothing More or less than hatred of Low cont iii. Hard language awhile we do not agree to endorse every thing which May have written and said on the Abo Ilion Side of this question we Are nevertheless of opinion Elat Many things which have been thought severe Are so mainly because they Are True that Many things which have been thought person Al apply to principles and not to men and that Ilain truth and i non Ilii Fiig have been frequent a mistaken for a bad spirit. Principles Are so identified with their advocates that i difficult to do Justice to the former without tossing to lie Sev Eife against the latter. Too great a sensitiveness however on this subject appears to us to evince either an the Lier Fil mind or a of cause. From the Days of Christ and the apostles to the present time the principal actors in All moral reforms hav a been accused of using hard Tanguag and while on the one hand we would exhort our Brethren to speak the truth Tii love on the other we would entreat our friends not to make Man a an offender for a american arum slavery society though our methodist anti slavery societies Are not auxiliary to any existing anti Sla Fory organizations being designed for the specific purpose of operating the More efficiently on the m e Church yet we do most cordially approve of the doctrines and measures of the american anti slavery society and its auxiliaries believing them Well adapted to engage and Correct Public sentiment upon the subject of slavery. And while we rejoice to find in the to slavery ranks men of All theological and political sentiments we should exceedingly regret to see the holy cause of abolition assume either a Secta Rian or party political aspect being Well assured thar so far As the elective franchise is concerned the principles of every True Friend of the slave Wil Lead him to give his support to such men a Wil carry out the True spirit of our a Uhlian institutions with whatever party they May be connected. And it is our solemn conviction that christians should Leil their Respoli bitty As citizens and should give flier suffrage Only to men of Good moral principles. But is and rights of christians we believe that All religious assemblies should Bear la Weir unequivocal testimony against slavery and to question their right to do this is to deny some of the plainest principles of ethics and religion As we As All analogy and Neligh faced usage. If a body of christians have any rights one of those rights must be Liberty to oppose All sin and to do this either in their individual or associated capacity. And As these Are rights which exist in the very nature of things no Man can the Church claiming it As our right we petition our annual inferences to Bear their solemn testimony against this great sin and our general conference that it would adopt such measures As will free the methodist a. Church from All participation in the great and crying sin of american slavery. These Are our measures and with the exception of the last they Are All employed in promoting the Temperance Sabbath school missionary and the Bible cause and indeed every other benevolent and Christian Enterprise which has Ever been projected by Man or sanctioned by god. And finally we do solemnly believe that All the above sentiments and measures Are in perfect acco Rafice with the doctrines and discipline of the methodist episcopal Church and Are directly connected with the accomplishment of the great object for which Meti Iodis was established in a Merica Viz to spread scriptural holiness Over the land and to Reform the continent and that so far from designing to depart from our a regular work a As has been insinuated we do not believe it in any degree necessary to our purpose nor Wim we avow in ourselves or Sanction in others any violation of the obligations growing out of our relation to the my fifa Oigt Ign Maeopal Cly Ich Jackd pee kids president of conv minion.
