It appears too me that you might of came out of the same school as Limbaugh.<quoted text>
Was it not you that debated with me for two days over my assertion that God had a mandate for slavery?
Even after looking right at the mandate I pulled straight from scripture, you denied it.
So, what I am asking is....
Did God mandate slavery... or not?
I will leave you with one line to help your process...
"Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ."
Obfuscation, conjecture, half-trues do not work on me. LOL
You left out the most important line: 9 And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Ephesians 6:9
Plus it clearly states slave or not do good to others.
