The Lord is not the lord of slavery. 

​Jesus was not pro slavery. Roman and Judaic society of the time may have been, but the lord’s injunction that one treat others as themselves and his notion of equality of sin, grace, and salvation for all without respect to particularities of person is fundamentally at odds with both the slavery of that time as well as more contemporary systems of oppression.
