Christian Slavery – Acceptable?

“Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result,  but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property. – Exodus 21:20-21

How can anyone profess the Jewish or Christian faith when it itself condones slavery!  How can any racial minority be a Christian when Jesus himself did not condemn slavery, but used slaves in his illustrations?  Also, the apostile Paul admonishes us to KEEP slaves. 

Tell slaves to be submissive to their masters and to give satisfaction in every respect; they are not to talk back, not to pilfer, but to show complete and perfect fidelity, so that in everything they may be an ornament to the doctrine of God our Savior. – Titus 2:9-10
