Damn it, I can't refrain my bad typing habit!

I see this slave argument used repeatedly! It is kinda ironic for me!

I wondered where does this slave mentality comes from?

Maybe they are just obedient Christians, cause God have spoken to them to be good slaves:

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.

Ephesians 6:5-8
Macedonians were for fife hundred years good slaves, I guess all are now into heaven. So why are we asking modern Macedonians to go to hell?

Let them obey their masters and peacefully go to heaven! This life is dwindling away anyways, so it is the word of God!

Maybe we all have to become good Christian and make Heaven Macedonian colony!

I hope you get the irony, if not think harder in retrospective!
To enquire after the impression behind an idea is the way to remove disputes concerning nature and reality.
