Christians are often critiqued by the fact that in Bible seems not to be deprecation of slavery.

This is because we were slaves of God.

God created people and thus he has the full right to make his creation slaves, just like a programmer has the right to use a computer program he created in any way he wishes.

If God were to condemn slavery in the Bible, he would contradict himself and be a hypocrite, because he is a slave-holder.

But does this mean that we must remain slaves? No, God provided a way for us to be set free: You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. (John 8:32)

However, when we are set free, we are no longer to live by the letter of Gospel but by the spirit. This requires a new stage and new interpretation of the Bible when we stop following it as a law. The law is canceled for us. When we tried to follow the commandments of Bible, we only ended up violating more important commandments while trying to follow less important commandments: You blind guides, who strain out a gnat, and swallow a camel! (Mat. 23:24)

It is a next stage not based on the letter of the Bible (which does not set us free from slavery) but on the spirit of freedom. The age of building our lives on the Bible only is now over. Instead, we now base our life on the Bible AND the spirit of freedom.

How do you free yourself from slavery? Read the details in my book. Do I need to say that this is important for you?

Notice that the Apocalypse is addressed to slaves (Rev. 1:1) of Christ. If we are free from slavery, God may possibly set Earth free from the catastrophes foretold in the Apocalypse, as our relationships with him improve. Can the world be saved? I don’t know, but I have hope that it can.
