Jesus never advocated the abolition of slavery. Did the Christian church go against God?


In the bible God gives the rules for slavery and it is implied that slavery is something crafted by God. If God created slavery and never advocated it's abolishment then did the Christian church go against God by releasing the black slaves in America?

    "Neighbor" in this context means "fellow member of a tribe of Israel who is not a slave" Jesus gave a very good account in the Bible of how a slave should be treated, and he never said "Freed" was one of those ways.

    That was about owning material possessions and being kind to others by getting rid out the debt they owed you. Slaves are still property, otherwise, it would say to not own slaves at all instead of just letting them go every seven years.
