It's the things we assume that really kill me.
Now that I said I wouldn't do this for all verses, we're gonna have to take a fucking minute. Let's get some context for that verse, kay?
Murray wants to skip this, he says the verse tells us this"means you are to work as if the Lord was your boss, that he was employing you, paying you, and you reporting to him."
And I truly wish there was "no favoritism". Now, stoppit.
Ha ha ha ha, HE'S STILL USING THE SLAVE VERSE OUT OF CONTEXT.
I say to you, work with integrity. Whatever that means. You're adult, you can crunch the moral numbers.
It's almost like the world is large and complicated, and it does no service to pretend otherwise.
Ooo, we're just demanding things now without using Bible verses! How exciting!
I, too, don't feel the need to cite a Bible verse when I tell people not to be an asshole.
Secondly, this passage was directed at free people. This stands in contrast to the next part that Murray just casually lumps in with it.
It is not about "suffering injustice even for doing good at work."
It's about slavery.
The exploitation of others in a cruel and brutal system that robs humans of their potential and basic fucking dignity.
I wish I could stop talking about this, but IT KEEPS GOING.
I have no patience for your "hot take" that these bags of gold are our innate talents, Murray, that we must develop for another to exploit.
Indeed, his action is to establish those work boundaries, for "Real men work hard….within boundaries."
