Leviticus 25:44-46<quoted text>
Your killing me with laughter my friend.
Slavery is not mandated by GOD.
It was an accepted practice in ancient times.
I am sure a Jew would treat a slave fairly unlike the Egyptians.
American Standard Version (ASV)
44 And as for thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, whom thou shalt have; of the nations that are round about you, of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids.
45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they have begotten in your land: and they shall be your possession.
46 And ye shall make them an inheritance for your children after you, to hold for a possession; of them shall ye take your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel ye shall not rule, one over another, with rigor.
I do try and keep a sense of humor. I am glad that you can appreciate it.
You didn't answer the question.
Are you telling us that god did not say this?
Or are you telling us that he didn't know any better because that was a long time ago?
If you are saying this is not the divine word of god...fair enough. You can throw your bible away now.
If you are saying he didn't know any better...fair enough.
What kind of god are you worshiping here?
Please enlighten us as to how you may justly and fairly own another human being. Really...I am dreadfully curious.
While you are at it....try not to redefine slaves as employees.
Employees can walk away. There is no "pay" in slavery. THAT IS WHAT MAKES IT SLAVERY!
Grab some courage and tell us which it is.
Thank you in advance.
