Amen! The hymn " Amazing Grace " has been used for many different things over the years since John Neston pinned it in 1748. He lived a hard-headed life, the son of a wealthy man, his mother raised him (an only child) on the Holy Scriptures until her death when he was an early teen.
He went thru many opportunities and even became a Slave in West Africa almost dying - he was "once an infidel and libertine, a servant of slaves in West Africa but the God intervened. Then he was rescued thru faith and while on the returning the ship he was almost sunk. It was in that setting he came back (repented} and upon the entire crew being saved off the coast of Ireland - began his JOURNEY AS OUTLINED IN THE HYMN!
The hymn is not about slavery - rather it is about coming to the saving Grace of God after attempting to do things for yourself! He became a slave ship Captain until a time came before he prayed and became a minister of the Gospel of Christ. Writing over 200 hymns.
He later worked with Wm Wilberforce British PM - to help end the slave trade in England. His life was about getting out of the bonds of evil and slavery in life! Read his life I have! Amazing grace is about your liberation from sin and death!
