Any decent person is repulsed by slavery of any kind. Today “trafficking” is the modern day slavery through sexual exploitation and labor. Research says that 20.9 million people are victims of forced labor. Does St. Paul open the door to slavery? What does he really say?
In the next part of this series on St. Paul, Fr. Mike explores the history of the times of St. Paul. He talks about the quotes on slavery that Paul gives and others from the Scriptures explaining their context and meaning. Fr. Mike talks about our “slavery” to modern addictions, etc. And then asks — “Are we doing any better?”
