    Why are you referring me to a resource other than yourself? That makes no sense. Wait! Maybe it does.

    I understand. You are well read and well educated on Biblical matters.

    I understand. You know absolutely nothing about Biblical matters unless it relates to the first 3 chapters.

    Wait! Those are two different things. I can't trust you anymore. I don't like that. I like honesty. It's better.

    No. It's not. I just looked. Were you making it up? or parroting nonsense that you heard without verifying it? Please let me know where these verses are about beating your wife. I would love to read them.

    No, I am not, I stopped reading it, and I can't quote it.

    But, since you can't figure out how to google....


    When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

    Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)



    Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them. (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

    However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

    If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare, 'I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.' If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever. (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)

    It is in the bible...it must be true.

    I'm gonna go and yell at my neighbor's fig tree.

    We have a huge misunderstanding. I am very familiar with every single one of these verses. I never meant to put you through all of that trouble.

    I was curious about the wife beating verses. I'm very sorry. I guess I wasn't clear.

    By the way. I see absolutely nothing wrong with any of these verses that you mentioned. Slavery isn't practiced anymore but if it was these are completely reasonable laws for a society to live by.

    I read it as being about owning slaves, and beating them.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Yes. That's what it is about. We probably agree on the meanings of these verses.

    Owning people isn't something that people do anymore. Of course slavery laws doesn't make any sense to us. I think it's good that we don't have slaves anymore. Now. Did you honestly think I was asking you about slave verses? Because I was asking about the wife beating verses in the Bible not the slavery verses. I was already familiar with every single one of them and I think that the United States should have followed Old Testament laws regarding slavery.

    Since slavery is an irrelevant discussion. Let's talk about this wife beating issue. Lots of people have wives. Nobody in the entire world has a slave. It's completely moronic to discuss the proper treatment of slaves. It's the most idiotic thing that I can think of. What's next? Are we going to argue the ethics of various dodo bird training manuals?
