Reformed Theology and Social Change (pt. 2)


This is the second part of Thabiti’s two-part lecture series at First Presbyterian (Columbia, SC) and Erskine Seminary. He was delivering the annual John L. Girardeau lectures. Girardeau (1825-1898) pastored a congregation of slaves at the height of the institution and alone opposed segregation in the Southern Presbyterian Church. The lectures have the general title, “Bondage or Freedom? Questions in Early American Theology.” In this lecture, Thabiti considers Lemuel Haynes and his rather developed abolitionist stance against slavery.
