Slavery in the Bible
"So what does the Bible do with slavery? First, it recognizes that slavery has become an ingrained human institution, and it offers some teachings for how to ameliorate its evil effects. Masters, for instance, are told to be kind to their slaves, and slaves to be obedient to their masters. Does this constitute approval of slavery? By no means. If I urge the Chinese to obey their laws and also urge the Chinese government to be considerate of its citizens, am I through such counsel approving the Chinese totalitarianism? Not at all. I am simply taking the world as it is and trying to move it in the right direction—like taking a very warped board and slowly, carefully bending it back toward straightness rather than breaking it by trying to make it fully straight in one quick motion."
