Servant, not slave ..

Ex 21:20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. 21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.

The correct word is SERVANT. There’s the biggest problem. #1 The NASB is not only based on the corrupt Alexandrian line of manuscripts, the translators are the ignorant fools graduated at schools like Harvard Divinity full of witches, warlocks, atheists, lesbians, and the like as a graduate of Harvard tells us, John Hinton.

The modern version translators use Koine Greek lexicons who get their definitions from Gerard Kittel’s large multi-volume lexicons. Gerard Kittel was Hitler’s “Christian” spiritual adviser. All the verses in context on servanthood show it was not the chattel slavery of the Old South.

Your homeword, since you pretend to know this subject: FInd the verse that condemns in no uncertain terms any forcing a free man into slavery.

Your next assignment will be to list the multitude of Christians who argued against slavery, and campaigned to free them, beginning with Paul’s epistles.

On “genocide”, the only ones who fell were the ones who fought against the Israelites. The ones who wanted peace were left alone, including Rahab, the Gibeonites and many others. Those Canaanites sacrificed their babies to Moloch and other gods.

God had told Abraham to live peaceably with them because their cup of wrath was not yet full. They got worse later on, with more than the paganism and infant sacrifice and violence and treatment of women. The Hebrews were the first in that area to hold women up for respect, as the context of your verses make clear.

Things got better around the world with Christ’s Great Commission all around the world. St. Patrick, William Wilberforce, John Newton, in England, David Livingston in Africa and England, and in the US the entire North was anti-slavery before England was, with all the abolitionists and Underground Railroad and Abolitionist crusaders.

The legacy of Christ (not “Christians” but Christ) is that today, generally, worldwide there is a general taboo against slavery, against cannibalism, against human sacrifice, gladiator spectacles, overt imperialist conquest. Jeus said “to ALL nations”.

Jesus used OLD Testament examples to shame the Pharisees about the Gentiles. The Lebanese woman that helped Elishah would enter Heaven before the Pharisees. David’s Mighty Men were more from other tribes (including some antagonistic before) than Hebrews. Nineveh was more righteous than Jerusalem.
