Slave to Child

"When God rescues unbelievers from sin, He makes them His own slaves.  yet, He does not stop there.  In salvation, the redeemed become not only His slaves but also His friends (John 15:14-15), as well as citizens in His kingdom and , most notably, adopted children in His family.  Believers have been transformed from slaves of sin into the sons and daughters of righteousness".  as quoted from John MacAruther from the book "Slave"

Seeker, I foorgt to address one of your major falsehoods, that the violent spread of slavery was the reason for the Civil War. The statement is so preposterous that you should be embarrassed, but it does prove your extreme bias for the North.The South did not want to spread slavery by violence, they wanted to secede and be left alone. After secession, they would have no more legal right to the western territories -- so how could secession help them spread slavery ? Ridiculous.Further, the plantation system did not work well outside the South, where neither the climate nor the soil supported cotton, tobacco or sugar cane, the main crops produced by plantations (sugar was in Cuba and elsewhere, not in the US). Therefore, there was no economic reason to spread slavery beyond the South. Some Southerners did want access to the western territories as a place to free slaves so they could support themselves farming; however, the white populace in those areas strongly resented blacks, either free or slave, and wouldn t allow it. So your argument about the violent spread of slavery is a transparent lie with no basis in reality.However, with the South gone,the South could now open its ports to free trade, ending the tariffs that funded Northern interests and industries. The result would be a massive transfer of international trade from Northern ports to Southern ones and this would have been financially devastating to Northern ambitions and Northern corporatism. This is also an important reason why Lincoln would not freely give up Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. To do so would end Northern collection of the tariff in that port.
