If the Bible is from God, why did it tolerate the institution of slavery?
The slavery tolerated by the Scriptures must be understood in its historical context. Old Testament laws regulating slavery are
troublesome by modern standards, but in their historical context they provided a degree of social recognition and legal
protection to slaves that was advanced for its time (Exodus 21:20-27; Leviticus 25:44-46).
In ancient times, slavery existed in every part of the world.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord,
He has trampled out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He has loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible, swift sword,
His truth is marching on.
Today the Christian message of the spiritual equality of all men under God has spread throughout the world, and is rapidly
becoming the standard by which the human values of all nations are measured.
