What started slavery?


Answer by  megh662 (9)

The first time we read in the Bible about slavery is in Gen.9:24-27, where Canaan, the son of Ham, the son of Noah, was curses by God. God said that Canaan (and his descendants) would be a slave of Shem (and his descendants).


Answer by  megh662 (9)

The descendants of Canaan are NOT the people of Africa. And this Scriptures certainly can not be used to enslave ANYBODY today!! I is sad the these verses were often used to defend the slavery. In Jesus Christ everybody can be free!!!
