The purpose of this page is to document Scripture references relating to the words slave and servant. I currently believe these two words are not the same, nor are they interchangeble.
My main points are:
- Servanthood is optional
- Servants know there Master's business whereas slaves do not.
24 'No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.' (KJV)
34 'Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. ' (KJV)
19 'While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.' (KJV)
