comment What is omitted from the current Western, Catholic Psalter?
@AndrewLeach You're right. I was thinking of the line "He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth" which is also omitted. I'll change the word to "Breviary" because there are decidedly omissions.

comment What was the punishment for escaped slaves in the Old Testament?
This site implies that because Christianity upheld slavery that decreases the efficacy of the Christian moral claims. If it can be demonstrated that this is an equivocation, that proves that their argument is without merit. Basically: if it can be shown from the Torah that slaves were to be treated well, that is a further argument in opposition to the skeptics. My question speaks to a particular occasion of mistreatment which was common in the antebellum South.

@waxeagle It is my suspicion that slavery in the Bible is not the same as slavery in the US. At a minimum, slaves in the Bible had more rights. But I'm still curious about it.

I'm interested in the treatment of slaves in the Old Testament. It has often been said that slaves under the Torah were treated far better than slaves in the antebellum South. Unfortunately, without reading 2/3 of Exodus, and the entirety of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy I'm not really sure where to begin.

comment Catholicism and the Laws of Moses
@gideonmarx "Pharisaic" does not necessarily mean "the Pharisees did it" (though I'm reasonably sure they did). A secondary meaning is Hypocritically self-righteous and condemnatory. (see thefreedictionary.com/pharisaic)

comment Can Christians be demon possessed?
Does the argument "Nowhere in the Bible does X happen" really work here? There are no examples in the Bible of a Christian contracting a deadly disease. There are only examples of God healing people.
