Question by AvidReader: If Biblical “slavery” was such a horrendous thing,why was there a voluntarily means of becoming lifetime slave?
…….in perpetual servitude to a particular family?
Surely someone wouldn’t voluntarily “doom” themselves under “contract law of the land” to a permanent state if it was a miserable position under which to live.

If it was between that and starving to death or being killed by rival tribes, I think I’d go with slavery.
