They were beaten and raped just because the slave owner felt it was his right to do. They were his property and he could use and abuse them as he saw fit.

Faith is what helps to get us through, illuminating the pathway in times of darkness, helping to give us strength in times of weakness. Without faith, we are nothing. <BR> <BR> Hebrews tells us in 11:1 - "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." <BR> <BR> Let's post Scriptures that tell us how we can have Faith in God.
