neil: you quote one verse. Why don't you read the rest of scripture? I don't want you to think I am a perfect Christian, I am far from it. All you want to do is prove me wrong. Not difficult to do that, but you cannot prove GOD wrong. When you quote Ex 21:16 as you did you judge all slave owners to be evil. Tell me show me where Jesus Christ told any slave owner to free their slaves. And he would accept them in his kingdom. You need to read scripture. I have read scripture for over 60 years I can not find where GOD condemned slavery.
neil: Where do you get the idea I am GOD? When I have a question on right and wrong I go to scripture for the answer. Where do you go? The Old South Is where i live and where i worship GOD it is a place. Alexander Mcleod is not God. And you are not God as much as you want to be! You need to repent.
neil: I believe GOD. Alexander McLeods was not GOD. You present the new world order version of history. Race based hooey, You are a true believer and full of hate. Why don't you get down on your knees and repent. Those blacks that were brought to America Were brought by the will of GOD, he had mercy on them. They were taught to know GOD. Many became Christians in the South. We Southerners are hated because we taught our slaves Christ.
Beating slaves was the norm. That is pure slander. You just repeat abolitionist lies. With all that beating going on all the time, it seems to me that the slaves would have revolted all over country and killed their owners. What about during war what a perfect time to rebel. Why don't you learn truth.
The false teacher of that church,Marshall Blalock is in my opinion a hypocrite. Where does he get the authority to apologize for slavery . Also Know that Charleston was not "Ground Zero" for chattel slavery. If you had said New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts were Ground Zero you would be correct. Now come to the term Chattel- in the 1828 Webster,s the word chattel is personalProperty ,Slave is not cited there. The term "chattel slavery" is used by race hustlers to de-humanize slave owners. If you good folks would read scripture you would learn that GOD established slavery in the 9 chapter of Gen that the law of first mention. GOD is not the arthur of sin. This is the same old yankee story demonize the South to cover their sins.
Well, she's right: autonomy is the basis of democracy. The Quiet Christian confirmed that with, "...inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." That right of pursuit? That's autonomy. The Constitution and especially the entire Bill of Rights is all about putting limits on mob-rule democracy, giving people control over their own destiny. There have always been those on top who want to rewrite our Constitution to quash individual rights. The best trick they ever played was convincing those on the bottom to lend their voices to that fight.
JC from SoDak, Just as I ask Jon. Show Me chapter and verse. As for rebellion to ones country Thats crap and you know it! The Southern States succeeded from the union they helped form. Leaving is not rebellion, You bet the feeling still run strong, what do you expect? Self-righteous Hypocrites continue to equate Southerners with Nazis!
Helpful,Convicting,Gracefilled,Loving,Jesus This was a great blessing. The problem of the tongue helpfully stated,described and diagnosed. The gift of speech celebrated. The grace of Jesus the Word exalted. I was led to cry out for grace in this area. Thank you for this. The Lord help us.
- that he cares about our speech shows he cares deeply for us he wants our hearts!
The year of Jubilee in Israel, only freed Hebrew slaves. It did not other slaves. Ladybug you have accused Southerners of terrible crimes From what source did you get this information. You say we are all made in the image of God. So was every murderer that ever lived. You say there is only one race, I disagree however what has that to do with slavery? The Bible does not condone manstealing but it does condone slavery. Jesus never preached against slavery the only people that condemn slavery as a sin are people like. You talk about the terrible things Southerners did to black women. What about the terrible things union soldiers did to black women. And we are talking about location, This is not going on in the North, Is it? Racism is an invented sin, By Jews at the Frankfurt school in Germany. The argument is not about Me condoning slavery. Part of the argument is that slavery is not a sin. You use the term "Dehumanizing" what does that mean? Being forced into slavery is a phony little term. Blacks brought to America were bought they were already slaves. They were so mistreated, in 1619 the first blacks (about 20)Brought to Virginia became 4 million by 1865.
You accuse the South of despicable crimes against the black people they captured against their will, taking them from their land and forcing them into a life of hardship. The slave trade in America was conducted by the Dutch, British and New England Yankee. Not Southerners. Most if not all Blacks that were bought in Africa, were already slaves. The Kingdom of Dahomey, a great slave empire since the 1600's was where many many slaves came from. One of the customs of the Kings of Dahomey was when a king died thousands of his slaves would be killed to serve him after death. Southern slavery was very mild, they were not forced into a life of hardship. You really Need to get the truth. You will be destroyed for lack of knowledge. What happened from 1861 to 1877. Started in New England in the 1830's when abolition began to split the churches. Here is another quote "Take the Log out of your eye, then you can see to take the splinter out of mine."
Some of you dislike the Democratic Party, You connect the 19th century party with the 20th century party. What you really dislike is the Southern branch of that party. You rant and rave about the South. I never hear a word About the Union League, or Reconstruction, The KKK stood against the murdering Union League.its always about the Evil South. Some of you accuse us of manstealing. Some say Southern slavery was not Biblical. You pick and chose what you want to believe, the only thing you really care about is jumping on the South so you can feel good about yourself. You hate the Battle flag because those good men Fought against invaders. In the 1960's the North forced Integration on us, In the 90's it was sodomite marriage. You say the Confederates were on the wrong side of history. you say sharecropping was to keep the Blacks down one of my Grandfathers was a sharecroper,He was white, his father was a confederate. You really need to know the truth God said "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." So you can jump on me some more.
