How Christianity Liberated Slaves
I saw an article today that asked a silly question. It was, "How would Jesus vote?"
In the first place, Jesus lived in a day and time when there was one vote and it belonged to the dictator in charge. There was no democracy or freedom of speech, religion or gathering. And, of course, no freedom to carry arms. There were no arms.
Jesus lived at a time when every group had slaves. No group thought slavery was immoral or sinful. As a result, some sceptics of the Bible accuse it of supporting slavery. That is pure anti Christian propaganda.
Here is a thought question. How did Jesus and Paul and Peter and James attack and destroy slavery and dictatorships? How did the Bible attack and destroy domestic abuse?
My answer next time.
