LAW 6: ‘DO NOT KILL’

Posted: August 17, 2011 in Controversial

This includes Abortions, Euthanasia, Suicide, Murder, Rape, Paedophilia, Incest (ie. the killing of someone’s soul), offending people, & deformation of character. Also, drugs, alcohol abuse, smoking, tattoos, & body piercing are evils that kill & graffiti the temple of God (ie. your own body)

‘Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, and you are not your own? For you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.’ 1 Cor.6:19,20

In God’s eyes, Unforgiveness is the same as murder; Hatred is the same as murder (1 John 3:15), & Anger is the same as murder (Matthew 5:21,22). In other words, it’s the attitude of your heart, even before the action is committed.

The Moslems believe that they have the right to kill anyone who opposes their Koran. Religion does not give you the right to kill. The time will come when the church system will kill the remnant and think that they are doing God a favour (John 16:2).

Christians believe that we should be loving and unconditionally forgive rapists, & murderers. In the Lord’s Prayer “forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors” means “in the same pattern as God”. The whole truth is that Jesus taught that if people genuinely repent Luke 17:3, or if you hold an offence Mark 11:25, you must forgive those who have hurt you (for your sake), but He also taught that love knows the right time to retain sins and not forgive John 20:23. God Himself doesn’t always forgive Matt.6:15. Secondly, Jesus taught that a person must pay the penalty for their crime. If this wasn’t true, there wouldn’t be a hell. Jesus does not forgive those who do not repent, He sends them to hell. God instructed the Israelites to kill and destroy anything that was evil or practiced evil (Lev.24:21). Obviously, therefore, this law does not forbid capital punishment (Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th ed., 1993, p.426); it forbids evil behaviour & attitude (Num.35:18).

True love knows what punishment is required for each act (eg. Jesus gave no punishment for the woman found in adultery), & correct justice can only be properly rendered when the motive for the action, as well as the offender’s genuine repentance, is evaluated without bias. A loving father will render to his child, fair punishment that befits the sin the child has committed. He will not just ignore the sin, or else he will end up with a rebellious child on his hands.
