Popular bible verses used by slaveholders to justify slavery

Popular bible verses used by slaveholders to justify slavery

Popular bible verse used by slaveholders to justify slavery are Colossians chapter 3 verse 22, 1 Peter chapter 2 verse 20, Exodus chapter 21 verse 6 and Ephesians chapter 6 verses 5-6
Certain slaveholders believed in their Christian beliefs and to own slaves was a God given right of European nations.
The slaveholder believed the institution of slavery was endorsed by the Scriptures. A slave was at the mercy of the master and labored daily under the cruel power, perverse whims and lusts of their owner. God not man claims supreme authority over every living being. He has made it the duty of every person to obey him in all matter of things. The Scriptures instructions are to show kindness towards our fellow man and love our neighbor as ourselves. It is no wonder why religion served as a refuge to many slaves. Slaves believed no one but God could deliver them from their bondage.

Open our understandings, that we may understand the Scriptures; and give us grace, in an honest and good heart, to receive that instruction which will make us wise unto salvation.
God, the aid of all thankful who need, the Giver of all spiritual blessings and grace, and the Author of everlasting life, with humble hearts and sincere devotion, we implore favor and blessing upon us. Increase our numbers, to enlarge their hearts, to strengthen their hands, and reward their labor of love.

Great, O Lord, is your goodness; unnumbered are the benef…

Three times the love in the Godhead

What is the Godhead? The father, the son and the holy spirit is the definition of the Godhead. Man is a trinity of spirit, soul, and body, three separate kinds of life in one.
God is holy, Jesus is holy, the Spirit is the Holy Spirit. The Father is love, and the Son is love, and the Spirit is love in the Godhead.The communion of the Holy Spirit means all spiritual and divine blessings in one, the Godhead. The Father is said to give and send the Son with the sanction of the Spirit, and the Father and Son give and send the Spirit, and the Son and Spirit come to glorify the Father, and each gives Himself to us and is our God.

In His last command, just before His ascension into heaven, Christ sums up His mission and the work of His kingdom; and, claiming all power in heaven and on earth, comman…

Two watermelons cannot be carried under one arm

Two watermelons cannot be carried under one arm
Money and Possessions and God What does carrying two watermelons under one arm mean? Two watermelons cannot be carried under one arm means no one can serve two masters.
Matthew 6:19-24 Treasures in Heaven

19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22 The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, c your whole body will be full of light.

23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, d your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

24 No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mo…

Use the strength of God prayer

Use the strength of God prayer
You can face whatever lies ahead of you today with the strength of God.


There was never a generation wherein the strength and dominion of sin did more discover itself, in the life and conversation of the people than in this present age. Such is the mighty power thereof, that as all the of men are slaves, so most of the children of God are captives to it. How are the thoughts, words, and actions of men as so many slaves and captives to sin? However, for as strong as sin is, the strength of it is little, and few know where the strength of it lies, it lies in prayer.

Use the strength of God prayer today, tomorrow and always.
