The Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, the SPG was established in 1701 in order to send the missionaries converting the American heathen. The Missionarie tried to instrut the black slaves in the plantations, however, their masters were against the SPG. It was believed that the slaves could not be converted because they were stupid and without souls to be saved. The planters thought that the slaves were their property and feared that the baptism would make the slaves free. The SPG insisted that baptism did not make any alteration in civil property and that after being Christians, the slaves would be more obedient to their masters. During the eighteenth century there were some SPG sermons which defensed the slavery for it was not prohibited in the Bible. Although the Church of England supported the slavery and the masters' property, some Anglican clergy criticized the slave trade and the slavery. It seems that a change was observed in the Anglican thought on slavery in the later eighteenth century.
