CONSIDER THE QUESTION OF SLAVERY:

“As for your male and female slaveswhom you may have: you may buy male and from among the nationsthat are round about you.  You may also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their families that are with you, who have been born in your land and they may be your property.  You may bequeath them to your sons after you, to inherit as a possession forever; you may make slaves of them but over your brethren the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with harshness.”  —  LEVITICUS 25, 44-46

… a iman is free to sell his daughter:into sexual slavery …

“When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do.  If she does not please her master, who has designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed; he shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since he has dealt faithlessly with her.  If he sesignates her for his son, he will deal with her as with a daughter.  If he takes another wife to himself, he shall not diminish her food, her blothing, or her marital rights.  And if he does not do these things for her, she shall go out for nothing, without payment of money.  —  EXODUS 21: 7-11

… Saint Paul admonishes slaves to serve their masters well:

“Slaves be obedient to those which are your earthly masters, with fear and trembling.  In singleness of heart, as to Christ. … —  EPHESIANS 6:5

[How black ministers of black churches be ignorant of the above or that quoted below … as they profess “the Bible as the word of God” … “every word is the word of God” ! ]

“Let all who are under the yoke of slavery regard their masters as worthy of all honor so that the name of God and the teaching may not be defamed.  Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful on the ground that they are brethren, rather they must serve all the better since those who benefit by their service are believers and beloved.  Teach and urge these duties.  If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching which accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit, he knows nothing, he has a moribund craving for controversy and for disputes about words, which produce envy, dissensions, slander, b ase suspicions … — I TIMOTHY 6:1-4

… morality … when Jesus returns to earth:

“God deems it just to repay with affliction whose who afflect you … when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance upon those who do not know God and upon those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.  They shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might … “  —  2 THESSALONIANS 1:6-9

“If a man does not abide in me he is cast forth as a branch and withers and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire and burned.”  —  JOHN 15:6
