Since Mark Twain popularized it, the standard atheist, liberal, pro-homosexual cavil that has been leveled again and again ad nauseum is the little phrase, "The Bible is pro-slavery." So, the atheists say, what does this "stupid" biblical god have to say about ethics? Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner put this phrase to bed once and for all on this edition of the program. It turns out that God knows what He's talking about. On the contrary, the liberal progressives will always create more slavery, broken families, and misery by their ill-fated "solutions."
Yes! You are absolutely correct! We should not be ashamed of the Bible; we should not be ashamed of God's Law. Very good examples were given in the broadcast, pointing out the benefits of following God's Law on slavery which is an indentured servitude as opposed to the chattel slavery of American history. No, we should not be ashamed of God's Law - any of it. Our Saviour declared that every jot and tittle would stand as long as the heavens and the earth, and God's Word bears repeated testimony that His Law is holy, just, righteous and perfect. This is no less applicable to those portions of His Law which regulate marriage - there, too, are holy, just, righteous, perfect and will stand until the heavens and earth pass away. These, too, of course, serve to strengthen the family and allow God's people to fulfill the Dominion Mandate. God's Law or tyranny; God's Law or chaos; God's Law or God's judgement.
Great Sermon! Too bad that the signed version of the Declaration of Independence didn't include Jefferson's rough draft passage denouncing the slave trade and slavery itself. Interestingly, a deist (Jefferson) would write against slavery but his line would ultimately be voted down by the rest of the Congress. Then, 85 years later, another deist (Lincoln) would finally put the nails in slavery's coffin. These deists defied a prevalent interpretation of the Bible and ironically abolished America's first great evil. What does this portend for the US's even greater depravity?

Great Sermon! hmm i believe the STANDARD ATHEIST is MALE
This is why the headship in the church MUST BE MALE,or else, they will leave the church to the women
Even though when Paul told Timothy said his mom and grandmother taught him the bible, he said that WOMEN MUST BE SILENT IN THE CHURCH....it could be because adam was created first, and women could be fooled easier, in general
besides, women cannot reach across like men can, they sound like nags and men either tune them out, or become effeminate or metrosexual
