What you you think of the war of independence of twelves british colonies? There certainly would have less bloodshed and less lives lost if they just didnt rebell, right?

What about the people in Warsaw ghetto in 1944?

What do you think of the various peasant revolts during history? They were mostly in indentured servitude or enslaved people? What would you tell them if any of them was alive to talk to you?

To quote one of the McCarthy hearings: Do you have no decency left at all?

If i was god.....there would have been a way around that, be sure.

Peoples children were unruly. It was a fact of life back then, no getting around that...no wait, wasnt there an order to stone them?

Ok, people were eating shrimps. It was a fact of life back then no getting around it, they simply liked seafood...no wait..

Okok, some people are gay, It was a fact of life back then and still is, no getting around it...

Oh, well, lets see.....some women get raped, It was a fact of life back then and still is, no getting around it....

Should i go on?

P.S.: ISIS, Boko haram et al. have introduced slavery again in places under their rule? Whats your opinion about that? No way around that, eh?
Your going into the OT not Jesus, and as far as slavery being OK in sects of Islam; no I'm not down with that either.

Times change... Slavery is not a fact of life anymore in the same sense, though it still happens.

It is cruel, atrocious, and supports entitlement, inequality, and discrimination.

Thanks for confirming that your understanding of morality is twisted and perverse and your ability to grasp the point is nonexistent.

Just when I think there may be hope for you...

A good example in this case would have been for the master to have emancipated the slaves. Think on that or a minute will ya?
I agree wholly

If all abided by the command to love your neighbor as yourself then there wouldn't have been slavery in terms we consider to be slavery.

Think on that while I think on what you stated.

No.
They will still be talking about the Christ I think.

Not if present trends continue. He was not special.
The concepts presented in the gospels were not unique.

Okay dammit...

I'm not justifying slavery in the present or the past.

I cannot speak for why it wasn't abolished by Moses or the Christ. But it isn't acceptable on any level. I can't even justify pinning my dog up, let alone slavery.

Thank you for verifying what I've been saying here for a year.

Thank you. No, really; thank you.

The Word and Will of GOD will be ever present, and eventually, by GOD's Will, all that was formed will return to IT.

Someone actively chose to be a smart ads, so I figured I'd play along.

People always want to bring up slavery. It was a fact of life back then, no getting around it. But being obedient to a master would have proved much less a danger than rebelling for other slaves too.

Accepting slavery because the alternative is more dangerous still doesn't make slavery morally right. And if god's offspring or god himself (whichever) doesn't take the opportunity to decry it's practice while he's strolling the streets of Jerusalem then that's a pretty shitty thing to do.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

You've been "saying" something for a year ? Could have fooled me.
The "word and will of (a) god" is a meaningless string of words, (which ... BTW, you have never defined. A god that "has a will" is incoherent, for obvious reasons. You might consider taking a philosophy course some day.

What don't you get about the fact that the Christ did speak out against slavery over and over and over.

There are but two commands that ALL morality stems from.

This morality is also woven in our actual making in the form of the Holy Spirit and conscience(selfless). Is it natural... Sure is, that's why I take issue with the word supernatural.

Peace
