The actual commandment correct translated is shall not murder, not shall not kill God killed plenty of people in the bible, it's the killing for a non-moral purpose that was outlawed in his commandments.

What disturbs me about modern-day Christianity, especially in modern day America, is the vengeful streak. Christianity's core is forgiveness, that's the essence of the faith, yet most American Christians are very pro-revenge when it comes to the death penalty and homosexuality and war. Doesn't make any sense to me!

But there are times that it is appropriate to stand against the evils of the world with force. We are not perfect so asking if Jesus would kill a human, in the hopes of proving any point simply doesn't work.

Oh well, sure sucks to be a catholic or protestant spending eternity in Heaven with a bunch of pedo;s who rape and murder little children.
But hey, thats like totaly forgiveable in the eyes of the jew god right?

Assuming there is a heaven and God gave us the Ten Commandments..
The sixth commandment is very clear - THOU SHALT NOT KILL.
And supporting the war makes you an accomplice.
Same as the death penalty, if you are for it, you are breaking a commandment.
I was going to include some Bible quotes to back it up, but for every Bible verse there is always another to contradict and I thought, lets keep it simple.
So, sticking with the commandments only, how can you be for killing and still go to heaven?
What would Jesus do? Would he obey the commandment or support the death penalty and War killings?
In my opinion, it is so simple to answer that question.
god kills every day, he/she should practice what he preacher`s
