DUH? Well aren't you the expert?

Some of The People of the first century owned slaves. Some of them were Jew who converted to Christianity. They had to make adjustments in their lifestyles, didn't they? If one owned slaves and then just *set them free* upon becoming Christian, the former slave would likely end up as slaves again for someone else - especially if they had no resources of their own to sustain them - which is usually the case of slaves.

I've read my Bible.

Now. Why don't YOU Read Philemon? It will show you EXACTLY how CHRISTIANS were to treat 'slaves'.
-
Pay close attention to Strong's definition of menstealers and kidnappers.
-
And if you would further like to enlighten yourself, check out what the Jewish law says is the correct punishment for "stealing men." ie., kidnappeer or menstealer.
-
Oh. and P.S. The *Protestants* who insisted on owning and raping slaves were not "truly" Christian, now, were they? Just like priests who rape little boys aren't truly Christian.

Amazing that so many posters here have all the answers, yet they are stuck on an anonymous message board, because no one else cares about their infinite wisdom.
How tragic!

Your obvious error (to true Christians) here, disregards the fact that Christians ARE ALSO FROM *EVERY* NATION, and therefore "brothers" in the TRUTH:

so, yeah. The Bible (Word of God) DOES have a problem with it.

Origin of the Roman Catholic Church and its teachings...
(2) Mithraism was a religion in the Roman Empire in the 1st through 5th centuries A.D. It was very popular among the Romans, especially among Roman soldiers, and was possibly the religion of several Roman emperors.
While Mithraism was never given “official” status in the Roman Empire, it was the de facto official religion until Constantine and succeeding Roman emperors replaced Mithraism with Christianity.
One of the key features of Mithraism was a sacrificial meal, which involved eating the flesh and drinking the blood of a bull. Mithras, the god of Mithraism, was “present” in the flesh and blood of the bull, and when consumed, granted salvation to those who partook of the sacrificial meal (this is known as theophagy, the eating of one’s god).
Mithraism also had seven “sacraments,” making the similarities between Mithraism and Roman Catholicism too many to ignore. Constantine and his successors found an easy substitute for the sacrificial meal of Mithraism in the concept of the Lord’s Supper/Christian communion.
Sadly, some early Christians had already begun to attach mysticism to the Lord’s Supper, rejecting the biblical concept of a simple and worshipful remembrance of Christ’s death and shed blood.
The Romanization of the Lord’s Supper made the transition to a sacrificial consumption of Jesus Christ, now known as the Catholic Mass/Eucharist, complete.
Why do you think you can post facts about the origins of Christianity, yet still think Christianity is original?

Nice try...but no cigar...
Christ who reads the heart saw his bosom sin was love of the world; and knew he could not be saved from this, but by literally renouncing it.
To him therefore he gave this particular direction, which he never designed for a general rule. For him that was necessary to salvation: to us it is not. To sell all was an absolute duty to him; to many of us it would be an absolute sin.
Just because that verse is totally consistent with so much else that Jesus taught doesn't stop people like Oxbow from making things up to suit themselves.

To bad so many people in the Bible and throughout history followed what Jesus actually said.

The earliest Christian writers were so confused and foolish.

Too bad the Holy Spirit even put that in the Bible in the first place, without consulting with Oxbow.

Being an Oxbow Christian is so easy. Forget the words of Jesus. Judge others, condemn others, and cling to your wealth.

That's called a "sure thing" in Oxbowanity. HAHAHAHAHA

Please post links to "Fools" so I too can see what you see.

I think you are jsut applying this passage to someone who has a better grasp upon what the Bible tends to teach, than you do, so you use this passage as your door out.

It won't work in the 21st C. Maybe it did in the 1st and prior centuries, as those individuals didn't have the intellect as humans today do.

Why do you try to mislead others, especially with Jewish texts?

Oh yeah - I keep forgetting, you are a Rabbi.

FYI the Earth does not sit on pillars and I don't need to 'claim' it to make it so. We have photos showing the earth sits (hangs) on nothing, just as the Bible says.

How could anyone even begin to refute an anonymous poster with infinite wisdom, who attacks and condemns Thomas Jefferson?

What's the point? When the Bible was written, Christians were from *every nation*--- except for one tiny problem.

That verse was written many centuries before Christianity even came into existence.

Awesome!

That's Ludicrous, Clay! How can you claim we have nothing in common with the original church when you can find NO scriptural difference in the church of Christ and the first century examples of the church we read about in scripture? Put up or shut up.
did the Apostles preach the faith by word of mouth and letter or not?
your answer should be 2thess 2:15.
So what traditions (this would be considered sacred) does your church of Christ practice to this day?
I showed you writings from the Disciples of the Apostles that show the Church taking shape. clement of Rome wrote his epistles while some of the Apostles were still alive. Others like Ignatius of Antioch spelled out the Christian faith as given verbally from the Apostles. A responsible Christian should be interested in what these men wrote.

your practices are based purely on what you guys see in scriptures through a 20th century lense. THAT Saban, is irresponsible.

Please post a link that shows evidence that the passage you reference is applicable to those individuals.

I don't believe you know who is a 'fool' and who is not, but will sure judge others as such (with this passage), because they don't believe like you.

You are foolish to think like this.

Live in love.

And yet you beleive the Bible, even when this passage clearly dictates that anything writen by men is foolishness.

Thank you fro proving yet again that Christianity is a fraud made for fools, like you.

But still.....you and all of Christendom think certain men were infallible.

Why don't you believe Jesus?
