Christianity is not subjugation, it is freedom. The whole Bible is about what is required to stay free as a nation, and the Israelites screwed up, over and over, and went from freedom -> enslavement -> freedom -> enslavement and over and over.
God wanted his people free, as he does not, nowhere in the Bible does Christianity talk about enslavement is key. In fact, it states that no man can serve two masters. You cannot be a slave of the state AND a servant of the Lord. Being free physically, on earth, is almost a requirement of being a Christian.
1 Corinthians 7:17 KJV
Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.
1 Corinthians 7:21 KJV
Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
If that's hard to understand for you, here is the NIV.
1 Corinthians 7:21 NIV
Were you a slave when you were called? Don't let it trouble you--although if you can gain your freedom, do so.
It is best to be free, so we are free to serve the Lord. If Catholicism is about slavery to the church, it is even a worse form of Christianity than i thought.
If those of the Catholic faith wish to help me learn, please do so.
