So a guy I went to high school with posted this meme with this statement: My response was: The shortest book in the New Testament is a book called 3 John. It is a book written by John, not Paul. It has nothing to do with slavery. The second shortest book is 2 John - also not written by Paul and not addressing slavery. So he must be speaking of the third shortest book in the New Testament which is Philemon. As you read Philemon, you find out that Paul is sending back Onesimus back to his home and master - Philemon. He tells him "For this perhaps is why he was parted from you for a while, that you might have him back forever, no longer as a bondservant but more than a bondservant, as a beloved brother—especially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord." So he addressed the issue, speaking to Philemon and telling him that Onesimus is returning as a brother and not a slave. He told him, "So if you consider me your partner, receive him as you would receive me." He finishes out saying "Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I say." So what this person wrote is untrue. I guess he never actually read the book. I will address the fact that slavery in that time was completely different than slavery today if he engages. What would you say?
