    Re: Slavery and the bible as a moral guide

    We are discussing the Old Testament in particular, which is establishing the laws and rules of Israel. It sets up law courts and tribunals to adjudicate disputes or claims arising under biblical law. If, for example, I was a non-Hebrew slave and you had me pull a heavy cart, I had the right to appeal to a Rabbinical Court for redress under the law established in the Torah.
    (I just don't have time to respond to your whole post, so please take my short posts when I can)

    That "laws and courts were established" using the Bible is fine, but this Op is "the Bible". Not what a slave could argue in court (if he survived to go to court). We are discussing the Bible as a guide, not how it was used.
