Quote from: Munch on August 03, 2018, 07:52:03 PMyou do understand the fact that slavery as been a part of human civilization long before the bible was was written, and those associated with the bible lived in times where slavery was just as much part of their culture. No it didn't invent slavery, but its followers made full use of slaves.

Quote from: Hakurei Reimu on August 05, 2018, 07:47:12 PMSo, once more eMpTy makes a bold, sweeping claim and crows early victory. Typical.
Quote from: pr126 on August 06, 2018, 03:46:53 AMYes but centuries later.What I meant was that the religions did not forbid slavery when those religions were created. Apparently they were OK with slavery up to the time when it was abolished.
Quote from: King James Version 1Ti 1:8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 1Ti 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 1Ti 1:11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. [/quoteEven if Christians practiced slavery, it does not mean the Bible was wrong.Do not get confused, lay the sin at the feet of the offender.why say, Christians practiced slavery, therefore the Bible is wrong!I do not understand such an argument at all!
Quote from: King James VersionExo 21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
Quote from: Mousetrap on August 06, 2018, 06:42:16 AMHow could I have forgotten.No evidence in the Bible that say one can go out and steal, "capture", people such as the Quran instructs Muslims to do.I herewith conclude that no Atheist can claim otherwise.
Quote from: Mousetrap on August 06, 2018, 03:22:58 AMOh, but it did!It was also the Christians who fought wars against slavery to end it.
Quote from: Mousetrap on August 06, 2018, 04:49:59 AMAnd once again not a single error in my writing can be proven incorrect.
QuoteOh, please ignore any spelling and grammar errors, that does not count as factual correctness, or errors.Take my challenge.If you dare!
Quote from: Mousetrap on August 06, 2018, 04:24:40 AMthe Bible does not allow slavery.
Quote from: Mousetrap on August 06, 2018, 04:30:58 AMActually, the word "Slave" in the bible is a misnomer.The real meaning should be "Servant", or even "Butler".
Quote from: Unbeliever on August 06, 2018, 01:35:04 PMIt was also Christians who fought wars for slavery to keep it - and used the Bible to justify it.
Quote from: Mousetrap on August 06, 2018, 04:42:12 AMwhat is described as "slavery" in the Bible, is actually totally different
