Got into a debate about slavery in the bible that required a little research and ran across a pretty amazing verse.
Ephesians 6:5-9: "Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart,
as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing
service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond
or free. And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect
of persons with him."
So according to the bible you shouldn't rebel against slavery. You should worship your master as if he were Christ himself. I really think this is
funny when comparing it to the conservative evangelical movement in America. For all there talk of freedom. According to there religion, it's over
The bible says that your supposed to shut up and take it. So with all the crazy talk about Obama being a dictator who wants to make himself king.
Really you should be worshipping him as if he were Jesus.
Of course Obama isn't going to run for a third term, as all you yahoos claimed. But if her were to make himself king. Your supposed to shut up and
worship him. :p
Now who's the cult.
On a real note.
I think this verse might lend some credibility to the theory that Jesus was a roman creation to stave off rebellion. It sure is convienient for a
society always worried about slave rebellions, for there religious texts to say don't rebel and be a good slave.
As a disclaimer. I've never seen any evidence , besides conjecture, that the theory of Jesus being a creation of roman nobility is fact. But it was
convienient for the Romans that the Jews got a guy who preached pay your taxes and obey the laws not the warrior king that was promised.
