Re: how God feels about killing ?
See i see this and wonder why i did not study this more , thanks for the input folks i learned a lot ..
i'll raise this as a personal view only
we have a new testament, its written on the tablet of our hearts..
to me this means the following ..
i dont like being stolen from , so i dont steal ,
i dont want to be killed for no reason , so i wont kill for no reason
i dont like being lied to , so i dont lie ..
i dont wish to be a victim either so i wont be one , even if i have to kill someone to do so ..
we know whats wrongful even if we try to justify it somehow
, the bible is a mix of different peoples views of God , as with any such creation the more that contribute multiplies the chances of conflict, , but with any mass influenced derived result the "whole" of the result is most accurate
its like range finding by multiple configurations
take a squad of troops , get them each to work out the range to somewhere ( distance )
average the result and you'll have a pretty accurate result ..
the bible is similar
its many people ( flawed as we are) own view of the history and actions of our Creator as best they could describe in the language of the day it was written
but as a whole it shows , killing should be avoided when possible and right to do so , but when needed should be done as quickly and with all your might , as possible ..
treat the Book as Whole , not just as points to be argued .. it shows a lot that way eh ..
