Slavery is not good, being in debt is not good .. If you work for someone you are their slave so to speak .. My grandmother told me before labor laws in the early 1900s late 1800s of some of her uncles/friends worked as children in the cotton mills and got whipped when they ''cut up'' by the bosses . The mill had a village houses owned by the mill, a company store , and gentlemens agreements not to hire good help to other mills .. Some sailers signed on crews understanding that if they didn't obey commands or do their jobs they would be whipped and/or thrown in the brig .. Long ago you defeated enemies and either killed them all or took slaves ''they were the law''.. Their was no great cash flows and your pay was provision for service . Israel served Egypt as slave for quite a while , when they were delivered from the Egyptians they had developed a slave mentality , When the Amalekites attacked them in the desert , God not only protected his people then but preserved the Amalekites for later .. God wanted Israel to take care of business .. He waited until Israel became self reliant, tuff and strong then sicked them on the Amalekites to kill everything men, women, children even all the animals .. Payback ..
It's sad about the African slavery but remember the first president was Jon Hanson a Moor and black, many other notable Americans were black but history books lie about it .. .. The American slaves were captured, shipped and served as slaves but they come to know the Christian religion and Jesus, the civil war payed back our nation with great loss of life while black Americans suffered they/most grew strong in faith .. One of the worst slave owners in SC was William Ellison jr who was black, owned plenty of slaves, and could be pretty ruthless .. Uncle Tom ''Josiah Henson'' was actually a great, one of the greatest Christians ever in America imo and his full story needs to be told .. The only way it can be justified is God meant it for their good and salvation like Joseph . The good news will be at the judgment seat of Jesus
