First of all, what’s that got to do with approving of slavery?
Your god not only allowed slavery to exist, he approved of it and set rules for slave owners. Trying to divert the conversation by bringing up war doesn’t change that.

You really don't know the connection between war and slavery?
Once again trying to divert the conversation by talking about war.
If we're to believe the Bible, your god obviously approved of chattel slavery. Instead of telling his chosen people that slavery was wrong, he gave them a set of rules for keeping and buying and selling and killing their slaves. If you can't deal with that without changing the subject, just admit it.
