Calvinism & American Slavery

Calvinism is  part of the root cause of slavery in this nation. John Wesley and George Whitfield were contemporaries. Wesley preached against slavery. George Whitfield, a Calvinist, preached in favor of slavery, for the sake of profit and creating a succesful nation. Georgia was a state that had banned slavery until Whitfield preached and promoted it. George Whitfield is considered the spiritual founding father of America. How’s that for division? Spiritual caste systems helped create political and economic caste systems.
