I am guessing that Mike Wilson (Letters, May 1) has never read the Bible cover to cover because if he did, he would know that a couple of his statements were incorrect.
First, the Bible does provide instruction for freedom of slaves. After all God gave repeated instruction to Moses when his people, the Jews, were enslaved by Pharaoh.
Second, Jesus was not condemned for socializing with sinners.
He was condemned because he was in this world but not of this world.
Society as a whole has not discredited the moral condemnations spoken of in the Bible concerning divorce, pre-marital sex, and such, although sects of people have. I highly doubt that Jesus would attend a gay wedding because if he did that would make him a liar, and there is only truth in him!
