“What does the Bible really say about Slavery? A Conversation on the Pro-slavery and Anti-slavery argument in the Age of American Slavery”
Tomorrow morning (Sunday, June 17) at Jesus Center Community Church, we will explore the second part of the teaching series entitled “Slavery, the Bible, and God’s Redemption.” We will give special attention to the so-called “Biblical Slavery Texts,” that is some passages in the Bible that seem to approve of the enslavement of individuals, but they do not indicate explicitly and directly that God has sanctioned slavery–as this was a common argument made by pros-slavery Christians and theologians throughout the nineteenth century in America. Secondly, we will discuss certain relevant texts that anti-abolitionists, both Christians and non-Christians, used to campaign against the enslavement of Africans in the United States, to legally abolish slavery as an institution in the United States, and for the American government to legally put a stop at the country’s participation in the transatlantic Slave trade.
Finally, we will do some comparison between biblical slavery and American slavery. This is part of our verse-by-verse exposition on the book of Ephesians (Ephesians 6:5-9).
Consequently, if you desire to learn more about this subject matter and live in Port St Lucie and the surrounding area, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us in worship tomorrow morning at Jesus Center.
The worship service starts at 10:00 Am and ends at noon. Breakfast is served about 15 minutes before the service.
See you at Jesus Center tomorrow morning!
