Slavery and Sanctions

John Thompson’s theory of the relationship between sanctions and slavery was that the sanctions provided by the owners or masters towards the slaves were utterly unjust. They would whip slaves without a reasonable cause of discipline. It seems that he masters would just unleash all the loads of anger, pride, rejection, pressure, and evil they had over their backs in the lashing of the slaves, for they would whip slaves when they had not committed any infraction whatsoever. However, Mr. Thompson also believed that a righteous God was observing all the iniquity of the slave system and that He would at some point judge the actions done within that system and that justice is always made by God.
