The Biblical Justification for Slavery — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerI find myself in a unique position for this episode of the Parker J Cole show — I don’t have a clue what the co-host is going to say. She’s been on the show a few times. Always a wonderful co-host but this time, she’s got me stumped!

So I speculate: could it be that all those people who say the Bible approves of slavery — even encourages it — are right? Should slavery become a legitimate form of life and not looked down on so harshly? Should the President read a formal apology to all those plantation owners and their descendants about being so critical of the institution? Should old and modern abolitionists bow their heads in shame for decrying that slavery is wrong? What will our guest talk about on this episode?

Lisa Guinther is an artist, published illustrator, poet, photographer, preacher, feminist, bible teacher, and philosopher. What is she going to say about the biblical justification for slavery? After all, she graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder magna cum laude — let’s face it: she would know!

This past week the nation was shocked by the senseless murders of forty nine people in a nightclub in Orlando. Being heralded as the worst mass shooting in modern U. S. history, the victims and the families are in a state of shock with many unanswered questions. As new details come to light in these few days, more questions are still being asked. “Why?” being the most prevalent.

Some have used the events to harp on the behavior of the individuals because of their participation in a homosexual lifestyle. Others have used the events to talk more about gun control and anti-terrorism acts. Other still use the event for their own agenda whatever that may be. Yet in the midst of this, are forty nine families forever changed by a violent act. What about them? How are they going to pick up the pieces of their lives now that their loved ones are gone?

How can grieving families whether from the Orlando victims or anyone else who has had a loved taken away, find hope?

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Blood for Blood with Ben Wolf

A vampire walks up to a pastor, grabs him by the throat and says, “Reverend, what must I do to be saved?”

Sounds like a joke, right? However, on this episode of the Write Stuff, our guest co-host and contributor uses this premise in his book, Blood for Blood. Through the vehicle of speculative fiction, we probe the question, is there anyone beyond the grace of God?

ABOUT THE BOOK

12169190_738338023625_210019867_o

What if a vampire got saved?

Calandra, an evangelist’s daughter, is amazed to watch as Raven, a century-old vampire, develops faith. As Raven ceases to drink blood and becomes more human with each passing day, Calandra cannot deny her growing attraction to him even though she is being courted by another man.

Raven’s newfound salvation is both a relief and a burden, as he encounters multiple vampire taboos and must overcome them. Just when Raven begins to get the hang of his new lifestyle, Calandra is attacked by bandits.

Will Raven revert to his old vampiric ways to save Calandra from certain death? Or will he rely on his faith in God to help him ransom Calandra from a new brand of evil more horrifying than he ever was as a vampire?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ben-Red-Shirt-CCWC-300x225In 7th grade Ben Wolf saw the movie Congo on TV. It was so bad that he wrote a parody of it that was set in Australia and featured murderous kangaroos instead of gorillas. So began his writing career.As someone who knows how hectic life can get, Ben founded Splickety Publishing Group to meet the needs of busy folks like him: people who appreciate great fiction but don’t have a lot of time to read. Ben has written six action/adventure novels (five of which are good) and has multiple other projects in the works. His first novel, Blood for Blood, debuted in September of 2014 and has been characterized as “bold…with nonstop tension” and “hard to put down.” It examines the question of whether or not God can redeem anyone—even a vampire.
