Yes, slavery WAS a huge part of the economy. It was a socially-accepted part of the society at the time.
It's also good to keep in mind that major writers such as Paul were well aware of the other followers of Christianity, particularly those who essentially compiled the biography of Jesus. He was a smart man, and decided it would be unproductive to reproduce texts that already existed. Why write out the entire volume of "Origin of Species" with every scientific article that analyses one type of bird? Simply because those reading were already aware of the overarching narrative. Logic.
Marriage was a consecration of a man's and woman's dedication and seeking the blessing in a god's eyes of their union.

I suppose it would depend upon whether the being in question is considered to be distinct from or synonymous with all of existence.
Must try, best of both worlds.
Think about so-called "people in poverty." Those who think most is determined before will advocate different policies. They will look at the welfariate differently than those who know that people make choices freely. The idea of responsibility for them changes. And on and on.
Bet you were burned Bowling Green was covered up, connie. LMAO!
Please explain what I've said that is "dishonest"??
Every government in the West is operating the same way. Spending way more than they take in and running deficit after deficit and accumulating more debt. It's not sustainable.
I tried to post a GIF, but it didn't post. : / Let me try again.
