Wednesday, December 12, a day in history...

Slave is another name for servant and the two words are interchangeable.  I say that is not correct.  I say Patsy is wrong.  A day for the history books.

The difference between slave and servant is ownership and payment, freedom and bondage.



King James said servant, Schofield said inferior.  The birthers believe what Schofield said.  And, Genesis 9:25 is the Bible passage the Mitster's people used to deny Black people access to the priesthood.

I am with you. Leviticus 22:11 talks about buying slaves with money. Leviticus 25:29 tells the Israelites not to make their fellow Israelites work as slaves. Leviticus 25:42: "Because the Israelites are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt, they must not be sold as slaves.
Servants are not bought and sold. Slaves are.

I think inferior is the word that the blacks reject of Scofield. Any how that is what I decided. Mormons rejected over this too.

I lied again! Darby was the person who influenced Schofield's Bible and he had Darby's work when he created his Bible. Most of his thoughts are really Darby's.

I'll stick with KJV and NIV for the most part. They are the ones I am used to.
