Quote# 7648

I agree that IF anyone did not treat their servants/maids with respect then, yes, that would be bad. However, if perhaps only a few treated their servants badly, is that sufficient enough to draw the overall, general conclusion of BAD? The terms 'bondman' and 'bondmaid' (Deuteronomy 15:15 and Leviticus 25) do seem to be referring to actual slaves as a 'possession.' However, though slavery is considered BAD today, back then it was likely considered the norm (a way of life).

That doesn't mean it wasn't bad back then, just as hating black people wasn't right before the civil rights movement ended up turning racism into a typical thought into something only nutjobs thought.

OK
Last time fuckwads.
A slave is property, you fuckin' own them, there is no law of any land that allows slavery, ever, that gives a shit about people who are enslaved. Your own Bible's highest punishment for killing a slave is a fine, like not feeding the parking meter.

There is no freedom of all people in Biblical law. Kingdoms were better then theocracies because king, lords and barons (sometimes)gave a shit about their people but churchs considered all expendable.

"However, though slavery is considered BAD today, back then it was likely considered the norm (a way of life)."

- So we agree that part of the bible is outdated. I wonder what other parts are outdated.
