>Celebrating the end of slavery

>Today is the 200th year anniversary (1807 March 25) of the English passing into law an act to abolish the slave trade . Slavery had been practised by multiple cultures thru out the world. Greeks thought that some persons were innately slaves. The only culture where anti-slavery sentiments arose to any significance was Christianity. So while some Christians may have claimed a biblical mandate for their owning slaves, much like many Christians do with other verses to justify beliefs that suit their behaviour, it is clear that the driving force against slavery was Christian in origin.

Summit Ministries have written a brief article on the end of slavery and Jonathan Sarfati has written about William Wilberforce.
