What did Jesus forget to talk about?
I'm trying to find moral lessons about things relevant in our time that Jesus and/or the Ten Commandments failed to address.

So far I'm only with slavery, war, racism, addictions, pedophilia and incest.

What would you add?

I would add critical thinking and rational thought. He missed that boat.

Anything and everything to do with science.

Jesus talked about slavery. Luke 12:47-48, New American Standard:

“And that slave who knew his master’s will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few."

Yep, human chattel who fail to please their masters out of ignorance - say, not understanding the language of their new owner - are to be flogged only a little. Those that understand and still disobey may receive unrestrained beatings.

As a union member, this is not a labor policy I can endorse.

I AM he who is called... cat furniture.

Same-sex marriage, overpopulation (they said 'go forth and multiply' but never mentioned at what point to stop!) Along those same lines, abortion and birth control I'm pretty sure were left out.

*cue typical apologist to say 'love they neighbor as thyself' somehow absolves Jesus of all culpability*

Considering that Jebus was god, I think it would be fair to have asked him how fast to run the IV Cisplatinin chemo on the adorable 6 year old kid he favored with the "astounding" (hint hint), gift of suffering from Acute Myologenous Leukemia.

RE: What did Jesus forget to talk about?
You think that's a joke? My cousin and myself had a "conversation" with my brother a couple of days ago. He (my brother) tried to explain to us, our need to understand the deep insight he had been given by the walls. And how my cousin and I should try to understand the gift the walls had given him!

So: Just as a footnote. I would mention the concept of talking walls. Thou shalt, or thou maybe shouldn't listen to walls.
