  • Einstein believed in “Spinoza’s god”, which is essentially just nature and the laws that govern the universe. It’s not the same as believing in an anthropomorphic God and putting faith in scripture.

    This is one of those reasons I always call myself an agnostic instead of atheist.

    Those aren’t mutually exclusive terms. “Agnostic” answers whether you know a god exists, and “atheist” answers whether you believe a god exists.

    I don’t know of any gods, and I don’t believe any exist, so I’m an agnostic atheist.





  • ##Old Testament

    #####Exodus 21:20-21 (NIV):

    “And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.”


    ##New Testament

    #####Ephesians 6:5 (NIV):

    “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as you obey Christ”

    #####1 Timothy 6:1 (NIV):

    “All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered. Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare of their slaves.”
