    Don't just cling to your beliefs here, look at this from a very common sensical angle. This argument is to common, and for unnecessary reasons.

    "An essay towards a plan for the more effectual civilization and conversion of the Negro slaves,: On the trust estate in Barbadoes, belonging to the ... Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts" by Beilby Porteus

    If you can find this book...find it and read it. It's about the conversion and civilzation of black slaves.

    In this passage, it explains one of the first steps of converting the negro slave effectually:

    "The first and most essential step towards a real and effectual conversion of our negro slaves would be the appointment of a missionary (in addition to the present catechist) properly qualified for that important and difficult undertaking. He should be a clergyman sought out for this country, of approved ability, piety, humanity, industry, and a fervent, yet prudent zeal for the interests of religion, and the salvation of those committed to his care; and should have a stipend of not less than 200l sterling a year if he has an apartment and is maintained in the college, or 300l a year if he is not.

    This clergy man might be called "the Guardian of the Negroes" and his province should be to superintend the moral and spiritual concerns of the slaves, to take upon himself the religious instruction of the adult negroes, and to take particular care that all the negro children are taught to read by the catechist and the two assistant women (now employed by the society) and also that they are dilligently instructed by the catechist in the principles of christian religion, till they are fifteen years of age, when they shall be instructed by himself with the adult negros.

    This instruction of the negro children from their earliest years is one of the most important and essential parts of the whole plan; for it is to the education of the young negroes that we are principally to look for the success of our spiritual labours. These may be easily taughtto understand and to speak the english language with fluency; these may be brought up from their earliest youth in habits of virtue, and restrained from all licentious indulgences: these may have the principles and the precepts of religion impressed so early upon their tender minds as to sink deep, and to take firm root, and bring forth the fruits of a truly christian life. to this great object, therefore, must our cheif attention be directed and almost everything must depend on the ability, the integrity, the assiduity, the perserverance of the person to whom we commit so important a charge, it is impossible for us to be too careful and too circumspect in our choice of a catechist."

    Maybe I'm missing the point here and I apologize. What does this have to do with the Bible?
