Why can’t I live the way I want to live?

March 16, 2018

Why can't I be free to live as I see fit, as long as I don't harm anyone?

"It's time to see what I can do,
to test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
I'm free."
- Elsa from Frozen.

We continually push the envelope and redefine society to match our cravings to be free, but is it good for a person to have freedom to do whatever he or she wants? And how does God fit into the picture?

Does the Bible condone slavery?

November 1, 2017

Recently Confederate Statues across the USA came tumbling down because of its link to slavery.

In South Africa we also see a continues process of disassociating with controversial historical figures, due to their link with Apartheid. Is it possible that the next thing that 'must fall' is the Bible?

There seems to be no indication that the Bible condemns slavery, as a matter of fact - slaves are told to obey their masters. Neither in the Old or New Testament is slavery prohibited.

What is the biblical position on slavery, and how can it be God's Word if it doesn't condemn such an atrocious evil?
