    It was a good move but it doesn't address the question of why it was condoned in the first place. Plus, if Abu Bakr was really righteous why didn't he free ALL slaves? Seems like more of a token gesture to only let go the useless slaves, no?

    To condone is to "accep"t and "allow". Can intructing someone on how to treat slaves, which god does in the bible, a matter of acceptance and allowance?...and doesn't "choosing" a particular group as his chosen ones riddled with racial bias?

    The question is what it is...why does god condone such. My reason for asking is that there seems to have been something sinister going on. How can people follow a god who makes slavery an institution? The true logic error thereforesides with god.

    Egyptian society, which embraced slavery, was here before the Romans therefore slavery is not a Roman construct. Exodus 21:16 is referring to the crime of kidnapping, not the institution of slavery itself. To condone is to accept and allow.

    So, the term "chosen people" is not racist or an artificial and biased "label"? God created humans as workers, as per the book of Genisis. Any other explanation is wishful human thinking. Co-Creators? Sounds like you're elevating man to a god status?

    Eric we arrived on this planet not by man's will but God .he has all the answers . People just substitute another choice of their own. Jesus always answered questions and taught based on his experiences with his Father.

    The is Adam and Eve betraye

    Eric the answer is straight forward is human error !

    At this time in life we all was suppose to be in paradise living forever , But Adam and Eve betrayed that opportunity them and us. What we see in the bible is exactly how man has lived under Sin.
