If you would prefer to believe the ramblings of unknown ancient ignorants in the face of empirical evidence to the contrary so be it. After reading many of your posts what’s obvious to this reader at least is that your mind is set in stone on this issue and I suppose that’s what faith is all about.
Personally I fancy trusting in myself and relying on my own experiences. That way I can’t be fooled into following another’s dictates. Personally I would have told Moses he was full of shit. If the gods wanted the children of Israel to know a thing, he would have spoken for himself.

There is nothing wrong in trusting in yourself and your experiences.

I trust in myself and rely on my own experiences also.

If you were running from pharaoh's army on dry land through the parting sea, I would have my doubts about you telling Moses he is full of it.

========

Exodus 21:16 states,“Anyone who kidnaps someone is to be put to death, whether the victim has been sold or is still in the kidnapper’s possession.” God not only forbids slavery, He gives them the death penalty for it. That’s how serious God sees slavery as. Slavery is no different than kidnapping to God.

=========

Leviticus 25:39-43 says,“If a countryman of yours becomes so poor with regard to you that he sells himself to you, you shall not subject him to a slave’s service. He shall be with you as a hired man, as if he were a sojourner; he shall serve with you until the year of jubilee. He shall then go out from you, he and his sons with him, and shall go back to his family, that he may return to the property of his forefathers. For they are My servants whom I brought out from the land of Egypt; they are not to be sold in a slave sale. You shall not rule over him with severity, but are to revere your God.” Here God says that a poor person sells their self to get out of debt but they are not to be subjected to them in service as a slave. They are also be freed after the year of the Jubilee. God calls them “My servants” and they are not to be sold in a slave sale. How clear is that?

========

The New Testament on Slavery

Paul speaks about slavery in the New Testament. The Romans were big on slaves but Paul clearly did not like it. In 1 Corinthians 7:21-23 he writes,“Were you a slave when you were called? Don’t let it trouble you—although if you can gain your freedom, do so. For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord’s freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ’s slave. You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings.” Paul said that “if you can gain your freedom, do so” and in verse 23 he says,“do not become slaves of human beings.” There is little doubt Paul detested slavery and wanted everyone to get out of it as soon as possible and desired no one to live in slavery.

You left out the most important part of the verse.

John 20:30-31
Jesus did many other “miraculous signs” in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But (THESE ARE WRITTEN THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE) that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

So John simply fabricated a bunch of miracles “that you may believe”? No doubt John’s word works for you, but I’m sure even then most preferred to see the “signs” for themselves.

Speaking of too literal, your heroes' pseudoscience at earthage.org interpret the bible as literally as can be, with creation about 6000 years ago and Noah sailing through the great flood around 4600 years ago. You claimed it was science, Bozo. Too literal? My a$$.

Sorry loser, not merely my opinion. Young Earthers opinions do not reflect the overwhelming consensus of the scientific community.
Geologists and other legitimate scientists don't believe in the biblical great flood and in particular, do not believe that stratification in the Grand Canyon and other locations could possibly account for a young earth or that they developed because of an epoch flood. Sorry, the world's scientist do not share your delusion.
It is evident that you believe in a young earth as you pointed to a young earth web site claiming it had credible evidence of the great flood (of Noah). You believe in the Ark and the fable of Noah collecting all the animals from the face of the earth.
How do I lnow this? Because you claim this garbage is science: http://www.earthage.org/EarthOldorYoung/scien...
here's a shorter URL to the same destination:

BTW, imbecile, no one was present at the big bang, or when the first living cell divided. This means scientific knowledge about earlier events is inaccessible? NONSENSE.
Only a theory? All science is based on theories constructed from observation, and when possible, experimentation. On the other hand, young earth claptrap is not a scientific theroy. It is pseudoscientific claptrap that attempts to masquerade as science and which appeals to ignorant gullible fools.
The theory of relativity is "only a theory"?
Chemiosmotic theory is "only a theory"?
The second law of thermodynamics is only a theory?
Grow up.
You have only delusions.

Then why did the GSA have a series of seminars on the subject in which cases were made both for and against a great flood? These geologist came from all parts of the world. I suppose they are all delusional? I think not. Let's see how your name-calling is coming along; loser, imbecile, ignorant, gullible, fools. Very immature and childish. But that's you. What existed before "the" big bang, wojar? How did life come from non-life, it had to happen at some point? Why are marine fossils found in mountain tops? Because it was under water at some point, no? How does a whale get buried vertically? There's more geological evidence than you have a clue about. You're limited by what you can touch and see. A great mistake.

Most of the Apostles died horrible deaths because they would not deny that they saw Jesus raised from the dead.

It was very hard and tough to be a follower of Jesus back in the day.

They had to hide, keep their beliefs to themselves, because you could be arrested and put in jail, and be dinner for the lions in the coliseum.

OUTSTANDING!
Seriously commendable. Typically, people decline any and all of my challenges.

Here are my issues.

1. In the future, please separate your quotes from your comments with more than just quotations...they are so tiny. Makes it easier to read for us old men.(thanks)

2. Your exodus quote has nothing to do with slavery. But it is decisive evidence god isn't big on kidnapping. This is not god denouncing slavery. He says...even if the victim was already sold. And nothing of freeing the victim.

3. a)Paul is not God.
b)A pit, a jail, a prison, house arrest..incarceration is incarceration. Slavery is slavery. No matter what name your master goes by.

4. Your Leviticus... has to do with EMPLOYING poor countrymen who ask for employment.

My Leviticus ... deals with God's mandate to enslave those of the surrounding nations.

Basically he is saying you may not enslave the chosen people.

If God told you that you may NOT enslave Americans!..but all others are fair game...

Is he for or against slavery?

This is pretty simplistic.
