A topic I often encounter on the internet is that the Bible and Christianity are evil because they condone slavery. To prove the point, they bring up and quote verses from the Bible that regulate slavery (such as Ex. 21:1-11, Lev. 25:44-46) or that counsel slaves to be submissive to their masters (such as Eph. 6:5-9, Col. 3:22-25). Do these verses tell us that God is in favor of slavery and is therefore evil?
