“The Bible does not expressly prohibit slavery. In the light of eternity, slavery was a very secondary issue.”
Yet when to have sex with one’s wife, which cattle can graze with other cattle, mixed fabric clothes etc, etc. These are primary issues, right?

(The mesolithic wasn't so bad, was it?)
They were primary issues to God, at least for the Israelites. Those ordinances were subsequently abolished in Christianity. I don't know the primary reasons for those laws, perhaps to keep the Israelites separated from the Canaanites, a truly evil people. Whatever the reason, it was justifiable.
