In an article: “Slavery” written by Richard Hellie, slavery is
defined as a “condition in which one human being was owned by
another. A slave was considered by law as property, or chattel, and was deprived of most of the rights ordinarily held by a free person.” Ever since the fall of man in the garden of Eden, the whole human race has been subjected to slavery, with the slave master being the devil. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, through His death and resurrection, fought for our freedom and became our freedom-master. The slave master (devil) is aware of our freedom from his captivity. In an attempt to keep the human race bound, he sends out a squad of agents to help accomplish this plan.
