    Hebrew servants were not to be treated as slaves. The slaves were the foreigners.

    All you have to do is read Leviticus25:44-46 and Exodus21:20-21 and it tells you you are to buy your slaves from the nations around you, that you can own your slaves as property for life and can beat them. Sounds a lot like chattel slavery as in the 1800s. Is beating a slave just tough love? You guys like to BS yourselves.

    Proverbs 1 verse seven says “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction” that’s real life

    People come to these videos when they don’t believe the Bible and say the preacher is twisting the word. But it sounds like he is actually trying to find the answers. You are the ones that waste your lives in disbelief if you only could see the love of God and hear his words

    Believe and abide in His love and He will come in “and eat with you and you with Him” He will have his Spirit of truth come into us and change our hearts, we aren’t conniving, we are loving others as Christ loved us. Or we are supposed to anyway

    Paul Copan is the go-to guy for the apologists on this issue and this is his best?

    Sweeping any form of slavery aside, just because your book endorses it, is immoral. Sorry.

    If Bible says you can beat them, kill them, inherit them, is that voluntary servants or slaves? Who would like to be a slave of me under Leviticus rules? Salvation guaranteed.

    You can't wiggle your way out of slavery in the bible apologists. You know that owning another person as property and beating them is immoral.

    Slavery aside, out of the nearly 8 billion people on this planet and the millions that have gone before NOT ONE PERSON knows exactly what existed or occurred prior to the Planck Epoch. If anyone claims that they do know then they are deluded or are being dishonest. Probably both

    Delusion and ignorance
