jeffreyb is not creating his own religion, hes only understanding the bible

"you said to make it easy to follow, I said if "loving your enemy" is easy then you are a saint."

I dont know how easy it is to follow bible, but i do know tht it is easy for christians to get rich:
" When a man SELLS his daughter as a slave,..."

heres the whole verse:
When a man SELLS his daughter as a slave, she will NOT be freed at the end of six years as the MEN are. If she does not PLEASE the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he HIMSELF marries her and then takes ANOTHER wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

"may leave as a free woman without making any payment."
y not give the poor woman some compensation?
