@ kitw90--hilarious!!! I've always wondered what the world (or my life) would look like if every single commandment, rule, law, & suggestion from the Bible was followed & acted out in our modern day setting. Hmmm...(**dream sequence) Chapter 1--PTPete is stoned for being an unclean harlot who engages in...speech. Nevermind.

@ dax2009: So no response to my fulfilling your request for a passage condoning slavery? You asked for one passage, I provided four, and can direct you to more if you need them.
But you won't.
Like most brainwashed "Christians", you refuse to accept that your holiest text is filled with contradictions, and the laws of men trying to consolidate their power.
Like most Christians, you talk a good game, but your knowledge of the "Holy" Bible is so weak that you have no way to counter anyone who DOES know the Bible, and points out that YOU don`t know what the book contains.
Perhaps you should try actually READING it in it`s entirety instead of basing your knowledge on what you hear in "Church".

8BitHero: yes, many many Christian women abide by this, and have no shame in it, nor do they consider that it makes them less than a man. It is supposed to be an example to the world of the relationship that Christ has to His bridew, the church... He died for it, and a man is expected to die for his wife, if need be.

Mat 19:8 "He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so." That pretty much covers slavery, also. Gd was dealing with real people in a real discourse. Slavery is with us now, and always has been. So has the poor. God doesn't say being poor is right, either, but He gives directions for how to behave if you are poor or rich. Remember: Mat 19:30 "But many [that are] first shall be last; and the last [shall be] first." and what I said earlier - "there is no male or female, slave or freeman, Greek nor Jew, for all are one in Christ Jesus".
