When i was young and attending sunday school church we were told the bible was the book of God.Much truth in it though but is this really the book of God ? The original book of God aint there anymore , what we have now is the translation and additions made by whoever people wrote the bible.
If there is no original bible to compare this translations to , why then should we believe the book we read now ?
God never meant anyone of us to be slaves in our real world , but how comes the bible , the so called book of God supports slavery?The bible was another rulling/conquering tool used by the missionaries but you were made to believe it was a message from God! What a lie ?
Biblical Verses used by Slave Masters to Justify
Slavery Psalm 123:2 (New International Version
(NIV)): As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of
their master, as the eyes of a maid look to the
hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the
LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy.
Ephesians 6:4-6: Fathers, do not exasperate your
children; instead, bring them up in the training
and instruction of the Lord. Slaves, obey your
earthly masters with respect and fear, and with
sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.
Obey them not only to win their favor when their
eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the
will of God from your heart.
Ephesians 6:5:Slaves, obey your earthly masters
with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart,
just as you would obey Christ.
Ephesians 6:9:And masters, treat your slaves in
the same way. Do not threaten them, since you
know that he who is both their Master and yours
is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.
Colossians 3:22:Slaves, obey your earthly
masters in everything; and do it, not only when
their eye is on you and to win their favor, but
with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.
Colossians 4:1:Masters, provide your slaves with
what is right and fair, because you know that you
also have a Master in heaven.
Titus 2:9:Teach slaves to be subject to their
masters in everything, to try to please them, not
to talk back to them,
1 Peter 2:18:Slaves, submit yourselves to your
masters with all respect, not only to those who
are good and considerate, but also to those who
Slaveowners would read these verses to slaves as
part of the worship services that they allowed
(and controlled) as a means of encouraging the
proper attitude among their slaves. Based upon
these isolated verses, slaveowners claimed that
the Bible supported slavery and taught slaves to
be obedient to their masters.
I believe that in God’s eyes we are all the same , there is no one who has authority to make another person their slave , we were not made to serve man but to serve GOD.
