    The SBC itself issued an apology back in the mid-90s if I recall correctly. Glad to see the seminary stepping up with it's own mea culpa.

    Something I think of > even though there has been reform about slavery, we need how only God can correct what in us could make us capable of slavery or something else we might still be able to get away with . . . not with God and the day of Judgment, but culturally.

    There are a lot of ways people now are in slavery, and they themselves are bringing it on their own selves.

    And ones can still be mean and cruel, though not using humans as their slaves. They can use and possess people in other ways.

    I wrote about this exact thing not too long ago com7fy8 and yes I totally agree. I personally feel there is a principality of slavery that still has a strong foothold in this country and is manifesting itself in other ways.
