Wilberforce

I'm not much for pictures on the site, much less video, but if you've not seen the following (HT: Justin Taylor), you really should watch it. Then in February go see the movie.



Also, if you don't know anything about William Wilberforce here would be a good place to start.

William Wilberforce stands in stark contrast to the blindness of many otherwise godly American Christians, particularly in the south, but by no means limited to the south, who refused to see modern slavery for the evil that it was. Piper in the link above quotes Wilberforce as saying of the slave trade: "If it please God to honor me so far, may I be the instrument of stopping such a course of wickedness and cruelty as never before disgraced a Christian country."
