I was shocked to read this in Wikipedia:
The Bible contains several references to slavery. The Bible nowhere explicitly condemns slavery, but allowed a regulated practice of it, especially under the Old Testament. Israelite slaves were to be offered release after six years of service, with some stipulations. Foreign slaves and their posterity became the perpetual property of the owner’s family, except in the case of certain injuries.
Although slaves were often obtained through warfare in the ancient near east, this seems not to have been a significant source for Israel.
The regulation of slavery in the Bible, and absence of outright condemnation of it as an institution was later used to justify slavery by its defenders.
What kind of people still believe in this non-sense? What kind of a God is this who doesn’t condemn slavery but “regulates” it? And all these deranged zombies converting for a bag of rice, they must be smoking something powerful to fall for the gig. Here is something for enlightenment: www.jesusneverexisted.com
