Slavery is an important Christian Value.
“Christianity” teaches “Slaves” and “Women” to behave themselves, with no actual distinction between the two.
A few New Testament examples:
1 Corinthians 14:34-35
“Let your women keep silence in the churches, for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also sayeth the Law. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”
“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.”
Servants, be obediant to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling. In singleness of you heart, as unto Christ.
1 Timothy 2:11-12
“Let a woman learn in silence with all subjection.but i suffer not a woman to teach nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
1 Timothy 6:1-2
“Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemied. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These thing teach and exhort”
Amazing how many Women and various other people who have ancestors who were “slaves” go along with so many Other warped “Christian” beliefs, yet ignore the sanctioning of slavery and command of submission.
For example, being opposed to the Rights of the LGBT community because it’s supposedly opposed in the Bible, while at the same time upholding the Rights of Women and Minorities even though the bible opposes Their Rights.
