All Falderal

notes i wrote in my pocket book no. 4: on slavery

is slavery OK?

“A slave is someone whose life belongs totally to someone else, absolute ownership, absolute control, absolute subjection, absolute obedience, absolute loyalty, absolute dependence. Slavery was a social relationship between two persons where one had nothing, willed nothing and received nothing but what the master authorized, desired and provided.” Excerpt from sermon by John MacArthur, “Slaves for Christ”

There are two types of slavery:

  1. Slavery to a Good Master:  Keep in mind what Jesus said, “No one is good — except God alone.” Mark 10:18 (NIV) God as your master is OK.
  2. Slavery to a bad master: Any master that is of this world. Whether it is another human being or enslavement to desires. This type of slavery is NOT OK
