Eagle, God has the power to stop slavery, he could have made it illegal, you know.<quoted text>
Do I support slavery?
You do realize that slavery continues today even in our country. There are young girls who were drafted into prostitution and some were smuggled here for that purpose. My answer is absolutely a no, past, present or future.
In my own family history we had family members on both sides of the issue pre and post civil war. The Bible does talk about slavery but you must understand it was a legal and accepted practice at the time. Itís a historical fact but in Jewish history there were limits on slavery.
Another point Atheist seem to forget. In Jewish Biblical history the Children of Abraham were also slaves including Joseph who rose in rank in the Egyptian government.
But what i don't get is, how can the bible be for slavery if Moses freed the slaves?
