How it is that I can post a lot of Bible verses, and with these very same verses right in front of us all you continue to claim they mean other than what they say.KiMare wrote:
If you knew history, you would know that political forces used religion, in fact distorted it..
Again, you post an ignorant assertion about history, and when proven wrong, lack the character to admit it, but instead engage in a childish shift that only continues to expose your ignorance.
~God is clear that the abuse of liberty results in slavery. History bears that out over and over.
~Christians have been at the forefront of pursuing liberty for slaves. That was true in England and the US when slavery existed in the past, and it is still true today. And like then, Christians are the only ones with any significant effort being pursued.
You prove to us that you do not believe a single word of the Bible when you subject us all to your apologetics. Only a dispicable being would do such deceitful, deceptive and dishonest things.
If you were telling us the truth which you are not, God wouldn't be supporting the slavemasters. Confederate leaders during the Civil War were quite correct when they contended the Bible supported slavery. "...Let the gentleman go to Revalation to learn the decree of God--let him go to the Bible,.... I said that slavery was sanctioned in the Bible, authorized, regulated, and recognized from Genesis to Revelation.... Slavery existed then in the earliest ages, and among the chosen people of God; and in Revelation we are told that it shall exist till the end of time shall come. You find it in the Old and New Testament--in the prophecies, psalms, and the epistles of Paul; you find it recognized, sanctioned everywhere (Jefferson Davis by Rowland, Vol. I, p. 316-17)." The well-known reverend Alexander Campbell contended: "there is not one verse in the Bible inhibiting slavery, but many regulating it. It is not then, we conclude, immoral." However, biblical support justifies nothing. Slavery was no more right in 2,000 B.C. than in 2,000 A.D. Morality has not changed that much, regardless of cultural difference and time differentials.
