Who Is Allah?

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Slavery is NOT being promoted.
" For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?"
Believe whatever you like. The FACT of the matter is that for centuries Christians saw no problem at all with slavery and referred to Phileomon as justification.

Do you have a better explanation for it?

They were either DECEIVED fools or CORRUPT men. Nowhere in the NT does it promote the enslavement of people.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is LIBERTY. Even in your passage LIBERTY is there. "thou shouldest receive him for ever;

16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved"

Was Jesus' disciples His SLAVES?

"Henceforth I call you not servants/DOULOS(or the same word that your translation calls SLAVE); for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you"

Well, now you know why Christianity eventually found slavery repugnant, in the same way that it found anti-Jewish sentiment repugnant, after CENTURIES of getting it wrong and at the cost of MILLIONS of lives.

Hopefully, Jesus, Paul, Peter etc and the early Christians were not anti-Jewish given that they were Jews and that Christianity was known as a Jewish sect for centuries.

Hopefully, Judaites or members of Judaism are no longer anti-Christians and anti-Jews who believe in Jesus, the Jews, as the Judaites certainly got it wrong in persecuting the early Christians starting from the time of Jesus.

A quick one, Buford

And after another century or two, it it will find itself totally wrong and would disband itself.

Eric---His response proves that he really didn't want an answer. He sought only to ridicule.
Eric---The only true way to understand scripture is to read it in its original form and interpret it for oneself
HughBe--- How in the name of Jesus can YOU honestly make your first comment above when YOU know that I do not know Hebrew or any other language except English?
So instead you make toilet reference?

Eric is correct. You didnt desire an answer. You were looking for a response, aby response, so that you could move on with your preconceived argument.

Eric knew that. Not only was he correct, but he as being clever. Very clever.

Your response? "Wipe my butt?"???

Speaking of your studies into truth - How is that book I sent you the link to? Have you finished the first chapter yet? Do you know the aleph bet yet?
