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,
6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.
|6:1 Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.|
|6:2 And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.|
Once again, no credit where credit is due. Entirely absent from the article is any mention of the values of the Enlightenment.
And just to show, once more, that secularist are often more Bible-literate than believers:
"Presumably, secularists and atheists do not read the Bible as much as Christians do, so I draw their attention, this Easter, to the behaviour of Pontius Pilate, as recorded in John’s Gospel. He had no belief in Jesus, perhaps no faith at all, but he was troubled at having to let him be crucified. He wrote on the cross that Jesus was “the King of the Jews”. The chief priests told him that he should have written only that Jesus claimed to be the King of the Jews. Pilate refused, and stuck by what he wrote."
If he dug a bit deeper, he would reach different conclusion: the gospel of John is the most anti-semitic of all four. The Johannine authors were trying to make nice to the empire, and in doing shifting the blame for the killing of Jesus onto the Jews. The acts of John's Pontius Pilate were no sign of wisdom; they were the seeds of a terrible legacy of resentment against people of Jewish faith, that has claimed countless lives and caused untold suffering.
