    Hopper Isaac T. BRead, Water and Wine are things below, and decreasing things; for the Bread and Wine which Christ gave at Supper in the night; which the World takes in their day time, this Christ and the Apostles gave in a shew and remembrance of him, of his Death, till he came, which some of the Disciples questioned after they had taken that, whether he was Christ or no? She did not discuss the slave population. Quarterly meetings could judge whether a slave was truly converted and should become free.

    Even after he came to deplore both war and slavery, there remained important residual differences between his opinions on these matters and those of the Society of Friends. Unlike Fox, the Keithians did not divorce spiritual and physical bondage. These Liberal Friends promoted the theory of evolution, modern biblical criticismand the social meaning of Christ's teaching—encouraging Friends to follow the New Testament example of Christ by performing good works. In conclusion, I shall speculate about why on the issue of slavery Fox's leading by the light did not result in purity of judgment.

    Neither writer cites Leviticus : 'Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour, but shalt fear thy God', or Exodus : 'If a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod and he die under his hand, he shall be surely punished', or Colossians : 'Masters give unto your servants that which is just and equal. With the Hicksite—Orthodox split of —28, Orthodox women found their spiritual role decreased, while Hicksite women retained greater influence. WE say Christ is the Resurrection and the Life, to raise up that which Adam lost, who hath all power in heaven and earth given to him and to destroy him that tempted him out; so He is the Resurrection into Life, of Body, Soul and Spirit, and so renews Man in the Image of God, and brings Man into a higher Condition than Man was in before he fell, to Himself, which never changed nor never fell: and so they that forget God and do wickedly, must be turned down into Hell, for by forgetting God and doing wickedly, they go from the Life and Power of God, in the separation from Him, and out of His favour, for in the Life is His favour; and so the Power, Light and Life goes over them, who go on in wickedness, that leads out from God, which was before it was. Instead, Gray called blacks 'heathens by nature', and argued that instructing them, as Abraham and Joshua did their households, would make Friends 'clear of their blood'. This doctrine states that loving God and humanity totally, as exemplified by Christ, enables believers to rid themselves of voluntary sin. The poem begins with the images of Egyptians trampling on God's people, whose groans rose to God; now Africa's groans ascend.

Some of the letters which were writ to George Fox, and others of the Quakers teachers book

Whatever social radicalism Fox had stood for in the s had been toned down by the s, except on those matters, like oaths, tithes, and liberty of conscience, enshrined in the faith.

Fox preached testimonies of peace, equality, integrity, and simplicity. Robert Purvis Robert Purvis was an African-American abolitionist, born to a free woman of color and a wealthy white Englishman.

He was active in prison reform and abolition, and was the editor of the National Anti-slavery Standard. Even conservative Philadelphia Friends believed in the sanctity of slave marriage and observance of the moral law.

So Friends had to choose among weighty members claiming guidance of the Light for contradictory policies. By the time of the American Revolution few Friends owned slaves.

Which Law of God commanded the Tythes of the Increase to be offered up for his Service, which Christ in the time of the Gospel redeems out of the Ninths of the Earth, and ends that Law that gave the Tenths; and the Priesthood that took them, and the command that gave them, and ends the offering.

In the aftermath of the Keithian controversy, Philadelphia Quakers feared disunity. At the front of the meeting house, the Recorded Ministers sit on a raised ministers' gallery facing the rest of the meeting, with the elders sitting on the bench in front of them, also facing the meeting.
