[Christian Hint: If you review your Bible for answers, don't forget that King James was too weak-kneed and liberal to use the word "slave." Instead, he used the terms "bondman," "servant," "maid," "handmaid," "manservant" and "maidservant" when translating the term "doulos" from the Greek. That word, however, refers to slaves, that is, workers who are the property of their masters.
