The devil is pretty popular these days. Think about it – his name and influence come up in all kinds of places – we have ʺdevil’s food cakesʺ – why? I LOVE chocolate, but I don’t like the name! You have heard the phrase “the devil is in the details.” Or what about, “I had a devil of a time?” Then of course there is “the devil made me do it!” Movies and television often glorify the devil and what he stands for – I mean, does the devil REALLY wear Prada? So, what does all of this mean? Should we be worried that the devil seems to have permeated our lives? Who is he anyway? How much of an effect does he have on our lives? Stay with us as we look into the origin, the description and the objectives of the devil. What should we know about the devil? Plenty!!
It seems that for all of the recorded history of man, there has been slavery in one form or another. Today when we look upon this subject, it is often with sadness and disgust that at one time, not so very long ago in our own country, we as a people allowed such a practice to flourish. Not only did we let it flourish, but there were those who insisted it was a God-sanctioned practice, therefore justifiable! What is the truth on this matter? Does God or did God ever advocate such a practice? On this podcast we look into the biblical history of slavery and servitude.
