Topic Notes

  • Truth Revolution on Tour!?
  • Science and Religion can coexist?
  • Answering “Problems with Christianity” from dogchurch.org
  • Listener Question from Bill
    • That was a great show on slavery in the Bible, but I was expecting you to mention the most unique aspect of the Biblical laws regarding slavery.

      It was against the Law in Israel to return a runaway slave. According to Deut. 23:15-16, the Jews were not only forbidden from returning runaway slaves, but they actually had a duty to welcome runaways into their communities. This would have ensured that all slavery was voluntary throughout the nation of Israel. Any slave who felt mistreated could simply run away and be granted immediate freedom.

      Thank you again for a great show.
