OstatnÄ›, klíčové je, že v Bibli není otroctví NIKDE odsouzeno. Ani v jediném verÅ¡i, ani ve Starém ani v Novém ZákonÄ›. Není vůbec od vÄ›ci zmínit, že se na to odvolávali mnozí duchovní v 19. století, kdy se diskutovalo o zruÅ¡ení otroctví. TÅ™eba Rev. Alexander Campbell napsal:“V Bibli není ANI JEDEN verÅ¡, zakazující otroctví, ale mnoho veršů které otroctví regulují. Z toho usuzuji, že otroctví NENÍ NEMORÁLNÍ.”

This is exactly what I became looking for! Why don’t you immediately shown to idolize anyone, but I travelled as a kid inside the fog from various other web sites. Do not forget that the easiest remedies work most effectively.

When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

Kelia thanks, thats a great site. Jewish Israel should be propogated far and wide.One of the reasons Evangelicals are condemning the Jewish left in the USA, is because they recognise this agenda. They want support for their religious agenda. America may be conservative, but it was never Christian. There has always been a separation of state and religion, and that's the way it will remain.

he has been accused of committing ‘sex by surprise’, which, I assume, means that the woman consented to having sex, but was surprised anyway? I do know that the first ‘rape’ victim threw the man a party two days after she was ‘raped’,(or ‘surprised’) and that makes me think that those Swedish girls seem very confused by the event 0Was this answer helpful?
