"SLAVES TO SIN" / THE POWER OF ENVIRONMENT
SIN IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL HARZARD
They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, 'You will become free '?" 34Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. 35"The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever.… John 8:33-35
“When we walk in a library, we go quiet. When we go to a club, we start or at least feel like dancing. Dancing in a library or reading a book in a disco simply doesn’t feel right, so we don’t do it. Many of us are trying to be creative while working in a office cubicle. Some of us are trying to heavenly while living in hell, and we wonder why we keep getting distracted or doing a poor job.”
Join Joseph McGill for a discussion on site in a slave cabin at the Hopsewee Plantation in Georgetown County, South Carolina.
Since May 2010, Joseph McGill has spent a night in over 50 extant slave dwellings in the states of Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia, all in an attempt to bring much needed attention to these often neglected structures. Known as the Slave Dwelling Project, it has been successful in highlighting the stewards of properties that are doing all that is necessary to preserve, interpret, maintain and sustain these structures. The project has also identified many structures that are in desperate need of restoration. What started as a personal quest has now evolved into a not-for-profit organization. The project’s popularity does not allow McGill to sleep in these places alone anymore. On Thursday, May 29, 2014, McGill spent the night in a slave cabin at Hopsewee Plantation in Georgetown County, SC, and was joined by a high school group from Milwaukee, WI and their chaperons. The Slave Dwelling Project's first Conference will be held in Savannah, GA, September 18 – 20, 2014.

According to Wikipedia, "Slave breeding in the United States became a common practice among slave holders and plantation owners as a result of several factors, including fears of rebellion from the increasing numbers of newly arrived slaves from Africa, and the economic impact caused by newly passed laws that restricted or eliminated the importation of slaves to Britain and the United States."
Many African Americans have mixed-raced ancestors. We will discuss the best genealogical resources to document these ancestors.

When male slaves turned 15 years on George farm they had their first inspection. Boys who were under-developed, had their testicles castrated and sent to the market or used on the farm. Each male saved was expected to inseminate 12 females a year. The men were used for breeding for 5 years. One slave name Burt has produced over 200 offsprings.

For years people have been debating religion as a whole and especially in the black community. Black theology was once a place where black people could learn about the church and their role as a people, no longer bound by the brutality of being a slave and being raped, beaten or killed by their ancestors former masters. But today's church is more about financing and building newer and bigger cathedrals while deminishing the family structure which God created to be His glory in the first place. We're going in on this topic and I hope you all will dial up this channel and tell some body!
