What a bunch of nonsense. Could we have chapter and verse for God warning the slave masters that they would be treated the same as they treated their slaves?<quoted text>
Agreed. Today we have employee handbooks that should coincide with the federal labor laws. If an employee today treats employees badly, they get fined or imprisoned by the laws of the government.
Biblical times had God's Word to tell masters how to treat and pay slaves. God also warned the masters that however they treated the slaves badly, they would also be treated the same by the laws of God.
GOD: "If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property (Ex. 21:20-21, NIV)."
Thank you God for being so clear about all of this. I only wish your "simple minded" would be so honest about it.
