John Piper: Does God Condone Slavery?

John Piper takes a look at Ephesians 6:5-7, and the topic of slavery, in the following video.

“Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man.”

“Christian slaves, your submission to your master is totally different than the submission of all other slaves,” Piper explains.

He places the emphasis on the part of this passage that says we are not submitting to man.

It’s a hard concept to wrap our minds around, but Piper says when we submit to Christ, we are free.
