Marie151 said at 2:52 "God is merciful. He does not command slavery." If God were merciful, he would have commanded that it cease. Instead, largely because of the Bible's implicit acceptance of the practice, it continued on for thousands more years, including until well into the 1800's in our country. The god of the Bible did, BTW, regularly command "his people" to slaughter innocent women and children. Tell us again about your merciful god ....
