Slavery, Employment & The Gospel

Paul turns his focus from living the Gospel through righteousness in the home to how Christians are to live within the issue of slavery. Slavery is something many falsely consider the Bible silent on, but there is much to be discussed on how God views slavery. Since slavery is not in our immediate context, the application is made to how Christians are to work for their employers and how employers are to treat their workers. Ephesians 6:5-9
