SERMON TOPIC: Slavery
Speaker: Ken Paynter
Date: 9 December 2018
Topic Groups: SLAVERY, ETHICS, FREEDOM
Sermon synopsis: Atheist: 'Why do people worship false gods?' asks the people who worship a book that endorses slavery, legitimizes racism, and celebrates genocide. Oh the irony!
Lita Cosner responded:
We don't worship a book, we worship the God who gave us a book that helped to end slavery, gives the only answer for racial reconciliation, and calls us to self-sacrificial love of our enemies even to the point of death for the Gospel. Without God's Word, why not enslave and kill others who aren't just like you?
I mean, if it's all survival of the fittest, why should I get all sentimental about human beings who aren't part of 'my tribe'.
Christianity gives us the only basis for caring about all humans, because we're all closely related via Adam and Eve, and Christ died to save people of every tribe, tongue, and nation.
