Exodus Chapter 20, 1-3
(1) And God spoke all these words, saying:
(2) I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
(3) Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
around the neck of a slave,
the other end
fastens itself around your own.
Slavery continues TODAY. Millions of men, women and children around the world are forced to lead lives as slaves.
Although this exploitation is often not called slavery, the conditions are the same. People are sold like objects, forced to work for little or no pay and are at the mercy of their ‘employers’.
