George Whitefield, of the 1sr Great Awakening, pushed GA colony to legalize slavery so he could make

Very few know this about him. He is greatly admired because of his role in the Great Awakening and as one of the founders of Methodism.

He had some land in GA and wanted to make more. He sold slaves to buy more land

I first heard about thjs fact of his life some yrs ago from posts at Fred Clark's blog slacktivist at patheos

1. Actions (karmas) bring results

Morality measures all choices.
So much suffering results from our individual actions, impelled by our choices, when our choices are compelled by selfish desires.

"Me", "my" and "Mine" are the trinity of original sin, so to speak.
Me, my, mine and more mangle the message of us, our and enough.

Enough with personal greed, enough of covetousness.
