    I heard that the "Jesus" was a ship used to help slaves escape from their masters. The best time to escape was when it was a stormy night, and they could get away unnoticed. But it was disguised as a religious song. Have no idea how true this is!

    To escape the compulsory obedience of the false laws of false religion.

    Like having to believe in the FALSE trinity doctrine...which is totally unsupported by the Bible.

    Jesus is God's son, not God himself.

    John 5;19

    John 10; 37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, do not believe me.

    Steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus!

    Steal away, steal away home,

    I ain’t got long to stay here.

    My Lord, He calls me,

    He calls me by the thunder;

    The trumpet sounds within my soul,

    I ain’t got long to stay here.

    Green trees are bending,

    Poor sinners stand a-trembling;

    The trumpet sounds within my soul,

    I ain’t got long to stay here.

    My Lord, He calls me,

    He calls me by the lightning;

    The trumpet sounds within my soul,

    I ain’t got long to stay here.
