How naive a statement from you. I don't believe in your deity. I'm repulsed by your lack of reflexive thought in choosing to worship the deity described by the OT and NT. I mean "reflexive" and not "reflective" in case you look the word up.like most unbelievers you cannot get past your revulsion of a God you do not believe exists.
How immoral.Slavery is regulated in Scripture for the benefit of the slave.
No, I agree with you - slavery is supported in the Bible b/c it provides clear guidelines on how to treat slaves. No perfectly moral deity would ever write such utter immoral trash.That is what i wrote. If you disagree then present your case from Scripture and history.
That you fail to see that is worrisome.
What? You aren't making sense. I assume this is part of your religious beliefs?Source of all life and all life is accountable to Him. You on the other hand continually distort God depicted.
Every single time your holy book talks about slaves, it never says "slavery is bad." Instead it gives clear instruction on what to do with slaves. That's supporting slavery.Cite your source for your claim. Where does God say slavery is ok?
1. Exodus never happened. All archaeology and the Jews agree on this point.If slavery is ok according to your understanding of God then why are the Israelites liberated from Egyptian slavery and why is the children of the widow liberated from debt slavery via Elisha?
2. They're metaphors. You'll have to tell me their meaning.
hahaha! No your deity doesn't. He furthers the abuses. He makes them happen - look at the fictional story of Egypt in your Holy text. Your deity kills children, causes suffering through disease and more. Your deity tells the Israelite to commit genocide.Right. Don't beat them to death because that is abuse of power. If you had even a mediocre understanding of Scripture then you would know God depicted continually holds people and countries accountable for abuses.
The OT is repugnant. You Christians would have been much better off had it been left out of the Bible.
I'm the only one giving rational explanations here. You're the one arguing that laws regarding the treatment of slaves are moral - and you're insisting that they come from the being from which all morality exists.You simply are not interested in any rational explanation from people who have studied these things for years so i don't know why you ask since your warped understanding takes precedence over any rational explanation.
Listen to yourself - it's not rational, it's not moral. You're defending slavery and calling it "good slavery."
