Slavery was and is a problem to this day. It was outlined in the OT and Judaism concerning the treatment of slaves.Neitzsche is in your camp. As is Stalin. As is Mao. Pagan Greece and Rome were built almost entirely by slave labor. No country on Earth questioned to morality of slavery until Christians did the questioning. Approx 1/3 of Roman society was made up of slaves who could be killed any time by their Roman masters. Heres another little fun fact as it relates to your pagan counterparts.''Socrates and Plato could sit around in symposia, drinking wine and discussing the essence of justice, largely becuase the civilization was maintained by an unimaginable number of slaves.'' They were so backwards they thought it a good thing to marry their sisters and use children as sex slaves.
Also, to say that it is to the sole credit of Christianity in abolishing slavery is not accurate and a stretch. It was a combination of many factors, not attributable to Christianity alone.
We can't forget that only in 19th century, did the morality of slavery begin to be scrutinized and considered as wrong.
I tend to think that much of the awareness that was realized concerning the immorality of slavery was due to the world, at that point in time, being pretty much accessible in all areas and regions.
Humanity in general finally had the chance to look at itself collectively, and saw that it didn't present a good picture in how we treated each other - globally.
That's my opinion. I'm open to discuss it further if you'd like, however.
There it is.A boatload. Not everyone is correct. When it comes to Christ my only hope is those foolish enough to listen to you will find you in hell as i'm sure you will be hiding out if you can.
I look forward to it.I will get to the Matthew 24 part later. Day off.
Have a good day. Truly.
