You are defending the indefensible. I can think of several alternatives to slavery in order to lay off a debt.
YOU POSTED: "In Israel, captives of other nations warring with Israel were given the option to become slaves, instead of being imprisoned or put to death."
Wow! Such a deal!
Again, my dear Christian Scholar, I am not arguing against the necessities of certain laws or the ancient customs that were already in place prior to Mosaic Law being instituted.
My argument is that a beneficent and omniscient God did not give these laws to Moses or Aaron.
You seem to want to allow God to pander to the customs of man (already in place) rather than to elevate man into a new way of looking at things!
