I have a new question that bothered me for quite sometime. What's the position of Christianity regarding the institution of slavery?
Christianity made all sorts of wild claims and teachings why couldn't it just say people are not property, stop it now!?
As far as I have read in the New Testament, no teaching opposed slavery, it just made it a less harsh of an institution. And for the most of its history Christian leaders have hardly made any effort to abolish till the enlightenment came and the institution was abolished by Christians and Skeptics alike.
