Sunday Morning – October 8

 

Neither Slave Nor Free

The absence of a clear-cut rejection of slavery in the Bible is problematic, but this is by no means a stamp of approval on abusive power structures or dehumanizing behaviour. Whether we’re talking about the 1st century or the 21st, God continues to call His people to higher levels of respect and love for one another.

Galatians 3:26-28; Philemon :1-25
