“Let as many slaves as are under the yoke count their own master worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, but rather do them service.”

St. Paul the Apostle10 – 64 CE

    I Timorthy 6:1. See also the following to see that the Bible endorses slavery, debunking those who claim to get their moral code from it.
    *Titus 2:9 Bid slaves to be submissive to their masters
    *Ephesians 6:5 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your earthly masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as to Christ;
    *Colossians 3:22-25 (NRSV) Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything, not only while being watched and in order to please them, but wholeheartedly, fearing the Lord. Whatever your task, put yourselves into it, as done for the Lord and not for your masters, since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you serve the Lord Christ. For the wrongdoer will be paid back for whatever wrong has been done, and there is no partiality.
    *I Peter 2:15-25
    *Also look in Exodus21:2-11 and Leviticus 25:44-46 for rules regarding buying and selling human beings.
