For those who say "I DON'T SERVE GOD BECAUSE HE CAUSED BLACKS TO BE ENSLAVED FOR 200+ YEARS", lets go to school real quick. True, slavery was not condemned in the old testament, BUT all types of slavery weren't condoned either. Slavery that we have witnessed in America was not the same as slavery in the Old or New Testament. In those times, slavery wasn't due to your color or race. It was more so due to social status or commerce. People often enslaved themselves to pay off debt, bankruptcy, and or to take care of their families. This was a common practice. Slaves were to be set free after a certain amount of time AND the Lord even ordered their masters to redeem them with food, wine etc. (Deuteronomy 15:12-15). Cruelty towards a slave was forbidden. Masters were ordered to treat slaves with fairness & equality (Colossians 4:1). GOD has no favorites, he created us all equally (Galatians 3:28). So why would he orchestrate slavery based on RACE? Even the mass kidnappings of Africans were forbidden by GOD (Exodus 21:18). GOD is not a liar, neither does he contradict himself. Remember as humans we have FREE WILL. So your next question would probably be "Well Why Did He Allow It?". Yes God allows things, BUT scriptures says ALL things work for the good of those who love him (Romans 8:28). Imagine how many people came to Christ during slavery. The people who made it out of slavery and were able to be a testimony to the masses, further solidifying (Philippians 4:13) which states, "I Can Do All Things Through Christ Which Strengthens Me". GOD always gets the glory in the end. Slavery in of itself was never frowned upon initially, especially when done correctly. The REASON behind slavery in America, (RACE due to HATE which is not of GOD), which admittedly was and still is the issue. Those without an unbiased assumption can clearly see this. Attempt to educate yourself before you trash GOD, he isn't to be mocked. #jesuschrist #jesus #followerofchrist #christian #christianity #thegospel #unashamed #jesusislord #wordofgod #GodsNotDead #elevationworship #worship #bibleverse #bibleverses #motivation #love #prayer #inspiring #holyspirit #prophetic #christianmusic #jesuscultu by martyrroyalty
