It wasn't the atheists or the agnostics who abolished the slave trade. It was Christians. In his message titled, "The Bible, Christianity, and Slavery" taken from Colossians 3:22, 4:1, Pastor Brian Brodersen continues by asking, "Does the God of the Bible support slavery, as some today suggest?" The Scriptures declare a resounding, "No!" In fact, it was the teaching of Jesus and the apostles that undermined slavery and set in motion its demise.
