Good point that deserves to be made.

This apologist article, basically summarizes the bible's approval of slavery by saying slavery in the bible was different from race slavery, and anyway the bible is not intended to reform society. has a good discussion on biblical sanctioning of slavery.

And from


"[Slavery] was established by decree of Almighty is sanctioned in the Bible, in both Testaments, from Genesis to has existed in all ages, has been found among the people of the highest civilization, and in nations of the highest proficiency in the arts." Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America. 1,2

bullet "There is not one verse in the Bible inhibiting slavery, but many regulating it. It is not then, we conclude, immoral." Rev. Alexander Campbell

bullet "The right of holding slaves is clearly established in the Holy Scriptures, both by precept and example." Rev. R. Furman, D.D., Baptist, of South Carolina
