Does the Bible Justify White Supremacy and Slavery?

 


Some people argue that the Bible justifies slavery and white supremacy, but there is an interesting artifact in the Museum of the Bible in Washington DC that argues otherwise. It is a severely redacted document referred to as "The Slave Bible."

I have visited the museum and seen this "Bible" on display. It is hardly a Bible. It is a manifestation of the manipulations of human depravity. "The Slave Bible" in all of it's redactions defies the Spirit of Christ to fulfill the law, our regard for Scripture as "inspired by God (2 Tim. 3:16), and the warning of Christ to neither add to or take away "from the words of the book of this prophecy (Rev. 22:18-19).

The whole of Scripture does not justify the supremacy of any human over another, nor does it justify the capture of humans and forcing upon them slavery. Those who use the Bible to justify slavery do so in the same way that a heretic would use the Bible to proclaim himself Christ or to form a suicide cult. 

This video from JOHN MCCRAY of Whaddo You Meme (excellent apologetics resource) is a well-spoken rebuttal of the accusation that the Bible justifies slavery.
