Slavery in the bible

To Enslave or Not to Enslave? – Leviticus 25:45 & Isaiah 58:6

These two bibles verses produce mixed messages in regards to the institution of slavery. Leviticus 25:45 reads, “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.” Yet, Isaiah 58:6 challenges this view when it asks, “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?”

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished – Matt 5:16 & Matt 6:3-4

The Bible offers different views when it comes to the execution of performing good deeds. In the same book one verse states that one should do good deeds for others to see, while another statement conveys that one should perform good deeds secretly. For example, Matthew 5:16 reads, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” However, Matthew 6:3-4 reads, “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.”
