Episode 875 Show Notes 

From the Show

What you have in the Bible are provisions made for that society. And one of the things that is unique about these provisions is that the slaves were being protected and cared for by God’s law.

Does the Bible Condone Slavery?

  1. Can I still take communion if I smoke cigarettes?
  2. I have a question about Exodus 21:20-22. What do you think about what the Bible says about slaves being someone’s property?
  3. Does 1 Corinthians 15 teach that our bodies will be spiritual or natural at the resurrection?
  4. Should Christians refer to Jesus as ‘Yeshua’?
  5. What does James 5:13-16 mean and should we practice this with those who are sick?
