Allow me to say, that in Exodus, Chapter 21, verses 2 to 6, there are rules for the regulation of slavery. There are more rules in Leviticus, Chapter 25, Verses 44 to 46. In Deuteronomy, Chapter Fifteen, Verses 12 to 15, there are rules for the emancipation of slaves.

The freed slaves have be provided with adequate provision for their sustenance. This was not done in the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863.

Let me say, that the Bible does not permit the taking of slaves from your own people, race, or nationality. Israel could take slaves from her alien residents or from the Canaanites. Slaves were required to obey the Sabbath Day and to keep it holy. Hebrew slave must be freed in the seventh year of their slavery in the Book of Exodus, which I already mentioned.

Saint Paul commands slaves to obey and submit to their masters in the Book of Ephesians, Chapter 6, Verse 5 and in the Book of Colossians, Chapter 3, Verse 22 to 24.

Some people say, that slavery is morally wrong. The Rev. Alexander Campbell, the founder of the Disciples of Christ and the First Christian Church would disagree with those people. Nowhere in the Bible does it say, that slavery is wrong. If slavery is wrong, then you will not find that in the Bible.
