The slaves of the heathen that the Israelites were allowed to purchase were effectively freed from their slavery by entering in to the Israelite community

Leviticus 25 v44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids. 45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

These people had all the freedoms that we have today except they were not allowed the freedom of religion and the freedom to choose for whom they should work. They could not practice their pagan religion in the land of Israel and they could not take part in the religious life of Israel except if they became proselytes.

Absolute freedom does not exist in any society upon the earth.

These people had freedom of movement and freedom to have families. Both freedoms which the chattel slavery of Islam does not give to any slave as a human right.

In Islam the slave is simply seen as just another form of money and a way of avoiding work. Also as a form of paying for sin or other reparations should the need arise. Just like a bank account. This is a false religion against the bible.

    Bukhari, Book 89, Hadith 256.
    Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle said, You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin.

    Something which is so boldly scandalous – and oftentimes unthinkable – concerning slavery in the NT Bible is, one bitter fact that there’s no more manumission of the slaves by the Christians because they believe now that the Levite Priesthood is abrogated by Jesus. After all, the NT Bible is indeed absolutely silent on the manumission of slaves. There’s no even one verse throughout the NT books that openly calls for a jot of abolition of slavery.

    The Levite Priesthood is a main Torah’s subsystem that is responsible for counting and maintaining the so-called “Jubile Year” for the Jews. It is considered as the most joyous year for the “universal abolition of slavery” in a cycle of 50 years, especially for the Gentile slaves and the poor debtors.
    Lv 25
    10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a Jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. 33 And if a man purchase of the Levites, then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go out in the year of Jubile: for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel.

    Now, since the Levite Priesthood is abrogated by the Christians after the ministry of Jesus, as its consequence the implementation of Biblical Jubile Year is also ended, thus a good abolition of slavery – in such an universal scale – periodically is also long gone.

    It is evident that the abrogation of Levite Priesthood by Christianity means a continuous installment of slavery as well as a civilisational setback, because it gives the bad impact of having the total enclosure of the slave’s liberty (abolition and manumission) from a religious way.

    It is ironic that today’s Christians proudly refer to the Levite’s Jubile Year for the argument of good abolition of slavery, but at the same time they insist on irony that the Levite Priesthood – that is responsible for implementation of Jubile Year – is ended by Jesus. Contradiction.

    The Golden Rule and the Royal Law apply to the slaveowner also. They oblige him to be kind and generous to his slaves. Infringments are punishable.

    The honour code of Islam means that the slaveowner is always offended and the slave never gives him enough honour to warrant his manumission. It is impossible for the slaveowner to be guilty of maltreating his slave because he can always ratchet up his honour to outweigh any mistreatment that he might inflict on his slave. If the islamic slaveowner finds no good in his slave he does not have to feel compelled to free him. There is always a get out clause against manumission in Islam.

  5. θ says:

    “madmanna says: The Golden Rule and the Royal Law apply to the slaveowner also. ”

    But Jesus commands the slaveowner to beat up and go medieval toward his slaves, even to kill and cripple him badly:
    Lk 12:46
    The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

    Also it is impossible for a slave to try to slap the cheek of his slaveowner, so if there’s any sort of Golden Rule applied in relation between slave and owner, it just advises the slave to give his cheek to be beaten again by master, even to be beaten a few and many stripes.
    Lk 12
    47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

    “They oblige him to be kind and generous to his slaves. ”

    Probably not if one reads Luke 12:46-47 and 1Pet 2:18 , but at most Jesus doesn’t ever support, nor even a jot oblige, the abolition of slavery.

    “Infringments are punishable.”

    Only in a pipe dream of slave. In fact, a slave has to surrender fully with fear to the wicked slaveowner:
    1Pet 2:18
    Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

    Ouch yet again for madman and his lying spirit!

    Haven’t you been humiliated enough on the matter of slavery?

    Jesus indicates a prohibition to ever invite any hardworking slave for having a dinner with the free ones. A slave ought to keep reminded of a hard way where he belongs all the time regardless the loyalty he proves.
    Lk 17
    7 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?8 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.

    In Matthew Jesus advises imprisonment for any unprofitable slave, whereas in Luke Jesus further permits the owner to slay the slaves on accusation of being a rebel.
    Mt 25
    26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    Lk 19
    22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow::23
    Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.25 And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

    I don’t bother replying every time a verse is taken out of context and falsely used in another context.

    LOL, sure…

    I am still waiting for your explanation of why your Bible permits the rape of female prisoners of war. Your precious KJV says so very clearly (i.e. “you have humbled her”).
