There is definately a difference between being put to death and having your life taken away. It's mentioned above allready, but the basic idea is that God gives and taketh life. Now you can be dead, but still alive. This is seperation from God. Technically, all of you unbelievers are dead in my (christian) eyes.


Another way I used to interpret this was to read it as: "shall be put to death by God" Because God stated earlier that no man is allowed to kill. And indeed, the law (10 commandments) is still there. Like a fixed part of the formula of rules on with the world turns. Break the law... suffer the consequences. But through Jesus, we are being offered a chance to be forgiven for what we do wrong.

And God is definately not silent... he let's us know when we don't do act right, by letting us experience the consequences, so we can have a signal to start praying for salvation from this suffering.

"shall be put to death by God"


its is a lesson man learnt long ago that god will taketh life in his own damn time.
many guilty people walk away from many inhumane acts and god never sends a bolt of lightening their way.
If he did some unknowing paramedic is likely to come along and restart his heart therefor undoing gods will.

there used to be a time, when a man who committed a very bad crime, like murder or high treason, he would be banned from the city or even the land. Nowadays that doesn't mean much, but it's a far worse punishment for someone to be isolated from all that used to mean something for him and to have his life or death depend solely on himself and God.

Even Satan will not be put to death. He will be bound for 1000 years. Now isn't that far worse than death?

Let's face it, there are too many contradictions in the bible to count. The Cain and Abel incident, and that Exodus quote make that very clear. The point is, don't put all of your faith in anything other than that nothing is certain.


That is the point of what? Not this thread, not that passage, so just the point of your opinion you inteded to express via this thread?
I think this is very germane to the discussion.

First off, whenever you bring a discussion about God up, you can't expect every participant have the same faith as you do. You have to be ready to listen to different interpretations of the same scripts. My interpretation happened to be that this was a contradiction. If on one hand God says It's okay to execute murderers, then on the other wants the first murderer to live, that is a bit of a contradiction. I know there are many more, but I won't get into that now.

Secondly, one of the basic principals of qyuantum mechanics in something called the "uncertainty principal" it basically states that quanta changes fundamentally, whether it's by possition or velocity, by the act of observation. It has to do with photons interacting with the quanta causing them to accelerate. I'm not going to get too into that right now either. For all anyone knows that could be proven wrong tomorrow, and that's all I mean, that nothing is certain.

Oh no, you didn't, I just wanted to make sure you and I didn't get too off track as I easily could on such topics and certainly wouldn't want to be accussed of hijacking the thread as I think it's called.
So if I sounded as if I was chastizing you in anyway or offended, it wasn't meant to be-although I was generally irriated at the time I wrote that (also not with you) so my tone may have shown that.

I just kept feeling the more I explained that one word with two meanings could express inteirely different states and consequences in that one passage, the more you didn't get that.


It isn't I needed you to agree that is how it is, but that how it could be

...at least...for a moment.

Genesis 9:6

Whoever sheds the blood of man,
by man shall his blood be shed;
for in the image of God
Has God made man

Shedding blood isn;t neccesarily killing, now is it.

While I liked Clinton as a President..is that a response like " it depends on what your definition of " is " is? "

Shedding blood means killing. Intent to kill or to impede. You dont shed blood for any other reason..When liberalism gets to the point where we have to define killing as not killing, and what shedding blood is, then Its the day I move from moderate to far right.

Peace
