Equiano believes that true Christians would never separate families or loved ones. Therefore those who claim to be Christians and treat slaves in this way must only be 'nominal Christians.' Equiano makes clear distinctions in the Narrative between pious Christians, such as himself, and those he considers hypocrites.
