Someone recently replied to one of my posts on this blog stating the pro-slavery verses are not important and should be ignored. Um…no. Christians describe the Bible as the literal word of God, so the pro-slavery verses definitely matter! Thus for Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday, I give you another pro-slavery verse in the new Testament and what is supposed to be the direct word of God.
“The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.” – Luke 12:46
Note the word ‘servant’. In the KJV, the word is slave. The NIV tries to make the language sound nice and cozy, but make no mistake, the servant here is a slave. The Lord is stating the slave will be cut to pieces. Does God do anything? Nope. God is okay with it. God is pro-slavery. The Bible is pro-slavery.
