I could talk on and on for days about why it is moral and good for our economy to be able to sell children, but I’ll let the good lord do the speaking for me.
|44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids.
45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.
46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour
This means that it is perfectly fine to trade children like donkeys.
You’re responsible if they commit crimes, and
you’re responsible for feeding them. Why wouldn’t you be able to sell them?
|7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.
8 If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
9 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money
Not only is it okay to sell children, but there are implicit rules for doing so. For example, male servants can go outside while female servants can’t. Additionally, male servants from your country are to only serve you for six years. This is to be expected since males are worth more than females. Six years of a male serving you is probably the equivalent to an entire lifetime of a female serving you.
Though God is looking out for female slaves too! For example, if the person who bought the slave is not satisfied, he is no allowed to sell her to foreigners. If the slave owner wants the slave to marry her son, she must be treated as a daughter, not a slave. On top of that, if he takes another wife, then he still has to feed her!
On top of all that, you’re not allowed to kill your slaves Exodus 21:20-21 , and if you gouge out your slaves eyes or knock out their teeth you have to let them go Exodus 21:26-27! How gracious and loving is God? I’m almost tempted to want to become a slave now! I bet slaves back then were treated better than the working class is now under Obama.
The good lord also says children may be taken as plunder after war, like cattle! Deuteronomy 20:13-14
If you think taking children from someone else’s home without their consent as a plunder of war is wrong, read Genesis 34:13-29
The wives don’t say have say in the matter either Hosea 1:2
Consider what happens to children who don’t properly obey their parents.
|The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.|
Beating children and slaves is not only okay, it could save their lives!
|Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.|
|And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, 30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.|
So, remember children are yours, just like cattle! You’re free to buy them, sell them, trade them, and beat them! Praise Jesus!
