    "Christian Slavery" was a polysemic concept. At the most basic level, it was an attempt to Christianize and reform slavery. Protestant theologians and missionaries drew on biblical descriptions of slavery as well as the ideal of the godly household to encourage slave owners to assume responsibility for the spiritual lives of their enslaved. The United Methodist Church can publicly speak of our own history regarding slavery as a way to respond to the unawareness, amnesia, revisionism and distortions too often reflected with respect to slavery in our nation.

There are other New Testament texts as well like Ephesians 6, Colossians 3, and 1Timothy, but Paul is advocating for a subversive undoing of an institution in daily life.
