The Bible does not specifically condemn the practice of slavery. It gives instructions on how slaves should be treated (Deuteronomy 15:12-15; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 4:1), but does not outlaw the practice altogether. Many see this as the Bible condoning all forms of slavery. What many people fail to understand is that slavery in Biblical times was very different from the slavery that was practiced in the past few centuries in many parts of the world. The slavery in the Bible was not based exclusively on race. People were not enslaved because of their nationality or the color of their skin. In Bible times, slavery was more of a social status. People sold themselves as slaves when they could not pay their debts or provide for their family. In New Testament times, sometimes doctors, lawyers, and even politicians were slaves of someone else. Some people actually chose to be slaves so as to have all their needs provided for by their master.

The slavery of the past few centuries was often based exclusively on skin color. Black people were considered slaves because of their nationality many slave owners truly believed black people to be inferior human beings to white people. The Bible most definitely does condemn race-based slavery. Consider the slavery the Hebrews experienced when they were in Egypt. The Hebrew were slaves, not by choice, but because they were Hebrews (Exodus 13:14). The plagues God poured out on Egypt demonstrate how God feels about racial slavery (Exodus 7-11). So, yes, the Bible does condemn some forms of slavery. At the same time, the Bible does seem to allow for other forms of slavery. The key issue is that the slavery the Bible allowed for in no way resembled the racial slavery that plagued our world in the past few centuries.

Question: "Does the Bible condone slavery?"

Answer: There is a tendency to look at slavery as if it was something of the past. It is estimated that there are today 12.3 million people in the world who are subject to slavery: forced labor, sex trade, inheritable property, etc. For more information, please visit - http://www.state.gov/g/tip/rls/tiprpt/2006/. As those who have been redeemed from the slavery of sin, followers of Jesus Christ should be the foremost champions of ending human slavery in the world today. The question arises, though, why does the Bible not speak out strongly against slavery? Why does the Bible, in fact, seem to support the practice of human slavery.

If African chieftains had not sold other Africans into slavery

Blacks now in United States would instead be Africans. Ones who were literate or had access to a radio would know of a land called America. Some might even dream of going there, but that is as far as most would ever get.

Slaves brought to the Americas were gotten from tribal chieftains who captured them in wars, raids on other tribes, or sometimes just bartered their own subjects for trade goods. Descendants of slaves who arrived in what is now the United States are citizens of the freest and richest nation in history while millions of Sub-Saharan Africans face starvation. Blacks are due no apologies or reparations for a slave trade that required the active participation of Africans, is long over, and ultimately worked to their great benefit. Would 36,000,000 Blacks rather be Africans living in Africa? Not likely.

139 years after it ended White Americans are still These include over ONE MILLION WHITE VICTIMS annually by Blacks. (Source: FBI Uniform Crime Reports) to eight times the White rate and are 50 times more violence. Contrary to popular belief, there is more Black crime. One result of integration is urban fifty years ago but are now riddled with abandoned resemble prisons, complete with armed guards Whites must also pay higher taxes to fund welfare trauma centers, and prisons that Blacks utilize or proportion to their percentage of the population.

Arab Muslims set the stage for Black African Slavery:

Christianity in Africa predates Islam by almost 600 years. Christian missionaries were on the African continent within two decades of the Crucifixion. Secondly, unlike Christianity, Islam had no interest in missionary hospitals or the poor. Arab contact with Black Africa was for one purpose only, plain and simple. That same is as it is now: slavery. The awful truth is that Arabs ravaged Africa for more than 1000 years before Europeans ever got their hands on black slaves. These black Muslim slaves died from over work and lived in squalor. By contrast, the four million slaves brought to America over the course of 200 years managed to leave the most prosperous group of African descendents on the planet.
