The only difference with the NLT version and the KJV version is, that instead of the word slave, the word bondsman is used, and what has Barack Obama got to do with it? The meaning of both versions is the same!
bondsman
Noun bondsĀ·man
1.A person who stands surety for a bond.
2.A slave.
The difference is the NLT distorts the truth and facts from the originality.
That is why folks like you are confusing the facts because you are using a book that is deliberately flawed for the sole purpose to confuse you.

No,the Bible spoke of slavery that was going on in those times,not endorsed it.
That's not true at all.

"You may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way." (Leviticus 25:44-46)

You're the one who doesn't know his own Bible.

Even Jesus condoned slavery:

"All you Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them." (1 Timothy 6:1-2)

Wrong again.

In the original Greek, 1 Timothy 6:1-2 contains the word "douloi" which is the Greek word for "slaves."

http://biblesuite.com/greek/1401.htm

And in the original Hebrew, Leviticus 25:44 uses the word "achuzzah" which is Hebrew for "property."

http://biblesuite.com/hebrew/272.htm

The Bible not only condones slavery, it gives specific instruction on whom you can enslave, how hard you can beat them, what you can execute them for, and when (if ever) you can set them free.

Like I said,you all confuse misinterpretations for facts when they are not facts at all yet nobody on Earth is going to get you to realize that because you have to realize that on your own.

FACT is that women were also considered property and treated AS property in the Bible.
Jesus was the first man in the Bible to treat women with worth and dignity and that is the truth.

That is in the Qu'ran to treat women as property,not the Bible nor your Bible.

In Fact, tell us all just when was it that women got the right to vote and own property right here in the U.S.A.

The bible told slaves to stay as slaves.

<quoted text>
First of all, that passage is NOT telling slaves to stay slaves, it's instructing slaves to respect their masters.
And secondly, there was no mention of "Christians" in that passage originally. It's a corruption of the original passage that was later added to The WORD.

Wrong.
OT and NT.

1920, btw, is the correct answer.

During the 1960's, women started protesting for equal rights. Women before the 1960's were known as housewives and mothers and nothing but those two things.
Women burned their bras because they felt that it proved a statement or made a stand for Women's Rights. Another reason they burned their bras was because it was a symbol that showed independence of men at the time. The women that didn't burn their bras often walked around wearing no bra at all. This was also meant to show independence of men. Many women thought that it meant freedom to be natural instead of pushed up. At the Miss America Protest there were trashcans that women called freedom trashcans. Women threw things such as bras, girdles, curlers, tweezers, high heels, etc. into them to be burned.

Your reply to me here is a prime example of why I would never actually count on being able to go to you with any question.
I know more than you do.
I will count on those who DO know more than me, and there are many.

Well,maybe you should listen to them that know more than you do and see what they have to say.
I guarantee you that what they believe and have to say is not what you might want to hear or believe.

And, I know what they promote..........hatred and bigotry and ignorance and narrow-mindedness.

No,I mean those of your own.
There are people of your Catholic faith that has been around a lot longer than you have and they know far more than you do and they also have enough dignity about them selves to act the way a true Catholic suppose to.
Why do you think that they exalt Peter and the saints,the virgin Mary and God the father and strive to be closer to them ?
Do you think its all whistles and bells,do you think that they play dress up or does those robes,caps and so forth have a true spiritual meaning behind it?
Everything they say and do is of spiritual and humanitarian value.
I just can't see a whole cathedral full of Catholics eating sour grapes and drinking such bitter water as you do.
Every true Catholic knows that they are not perfect and that they do have faults and hang ups in life,if they didn't then there would be no need to hear confessions and asking for forgiveness.

You make up stuff as you go along!
Seems that you have had a lot of practice doing just that!

I have never once claimed to be without fault.
Of course, Church fathers know more than I do as to the Catholic faith.
Yet, I surely do count on Catholic sites to share/explain any answers I give concerning it.
I do not just count on my own thoughts of it. I have learned a lot about my own faith IN doing this.

Your problem is looking for a Catholic to 'act' a certain way.
There are over a billion Catholics; not one of them is the same; not one of them 'acts' the same. Yet, they all share the same beliefs.

I am wondering here just why you keep going back to this notion of 'acting' in a certain way.
My educated guess is that you don't even know many Catholics. You surely don't know much about the Catholic faith.
