Why? Do you find it difficult being a civilian and feel out of use by not being on the battlefield? Is your idea of heaven, a constant slug-fest, and a tasty dinner afterwards for all eternity?

The taking of a life is never "okay," and I'd expect myself to burn in Hell (or whatever further punishment awaits after this life) if I were to even kill someone in personal defense, no matter what Earthly justification I had. The only time I can see taking someone else's life to not be punishable by damnation would be if it were an accident, and even then, why didn't I pay better attention to what I was doing? Why didn't I put myself in a different situation to prevent such an accident from happening?
