TEACHING [Past posts- Verses below]
As we end the Ephesians study- Paul gives more practical instruction- some of it will become controversial some 1800 years after he penned it-
Ephesians 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
Ephesians 6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
Ephesians 6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
Ephesians 6:8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
Ephesians 6:9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
There it is- from the bible itself- instruction for slaves to obey their masters.
Why is this in the New Testament?
There are other bible passages- both in the Old and New Testaments, that speak about slavery- rules given to how it should be applied- [Some sites see here https://corpusoutreach.weebly.com/most-recent-posts/ephesians-61966104 ]
And teaching that says slaves should obey their masters.
