Slavery Began before theBible was written.
.Errol Smythe
SLAVERY BEGAN BEFORE THE BIBLE WAS WRITTENThere were slaves in the world before the first five Books of the Bible were written. Readyour History : Slavery started before the Bible was written .People find it difficult to relate to the word
 People may not be slaves to someone else just like the children of Israel were slaves to theEgyptians before the First Exodus .However, one way or another, like someone said,
...everybody has got to Servesomebody.....
Some people
.... may serve this and others may serve that...but everybody has gotta servesomebody....
There is physical slavery where a man can be a slave to his slave master just like how Mosesparents were slaves to the Egyptians.There is spiritual slavery where unregenerate man becomes a religious slave is enslaved bythe false teachings of false prophets and false preachers and false anointed ones.The Lord Jesus Christ said
... the truth shall make you free.... ( John 8 verse32 ).
Mankind were created in the image of God. Man is spirit. Man has a body.Man has a soul. The spirit of man has a desire to worship God in spirit and inTruth and not be enslaved by doctrines of devils and teachings of false prophets.Mankind cannot serve two masters. ( Matthew 6 verse 24 ).There are two laws in life. The Law of life and the law of death.Someone said
.... if you are born once , you die twice . if you are born twice you dieonce......
They were speaking about a sinner repenting of their sins
and being born again.
The Bible says that
...All have sinned and come short of the glory of God ; ... (Romans 3verse 23 ).
Mankind may serve the law of Life and live or serve the Law of death and die.
Deuteronomy 30 verse 19 and 20 says :....I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:20. That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest 
dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob,to give them........
Man is a free moral agent makes choices every day in life. The choices one makes impactson their destination at the end of days of their sojourn on earth.Moses, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote the first five books of the Bible :Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy .Moses was one of forty men that God used over a period of about 1600 hundred years towrite the Bible. There are 39 Books in the Old Testament and 27 Books in the NewTestament.Contrary to some uneducated guesses slavery was in existence before the Bible was written.Students of History know that the Children of Israel were slaves in Egypt.Moses parents were slaves in the land of Egypt.Exodus Chapter 1 says :
.........Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every manand his household came with Jacob.2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was inEgypt already.6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, whenthere falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their
