    Hi , hope your all doing well.


    Please note, typing error, it is ''1 John 1:9 '' not 1:19

    Here is Your Word for Today taken from 1 John 1:9.


    If we confess our sin, he is able to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    Meaning = Each and every one of us are sinner's. we need to seek forgiveness and repent daily. if we do so we are confessing our wrong doing to Jesus and he will forgive us and forget everything about it. Just don't go and sin purposely knowing you will be forgiven, that is the wrong attitude.


    God Bless

    Here's your other Word for Today.

    However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46)

    God Bless (but not all of you).

    Hi there.

    Google 'indentured servitude'. Slavery, as described in Scripture, was not kidnapping someone and forcing them to work as a slave. It was what we now call indentured servitude, where people voluntarily sold themselves to pay off a debt, take care of their family, or own land (aka serfs, in this usage). It has been common throughout history, and is not the same as what we call slavery today. Kidnapping someone was punishable by death, whether you'd sold them or they escaped in some fashion; see Exodus 21:16.

    Christians don't have to justify Scripture; we have to read and learn it. It would serve you well to do likewise.
