Aaron. The commandment in the Decalogue commands men not to commit murder.
aww you used my name... how endearing
I'd be happy to explain the logic in my statement... Look at the first line in the OP for starters...
If The god of The Bible is evil...
It is my belief that this God we're speaking of is in fact some "entity" posing as the true God...
The act of Murder is defined as premeditated... Killing another person is also premeditated... meaning said person meant to murder/kill...
Now when this God gave this command "thou shall not kill/murder" did he mean don't take a life... or did he actually mean don't take a life unless
i tell you to do so?
Well if we refer back to the original quote i used, anyone who works during the sabbath shall be put to death... That is called "MURDER"...
Not only is that a completely ridonkulous reason to be put to death... but if said person is put to death how can he/she repent? Isn't that a tenant
of your belief... repentance?
By putting said person to death you remove any chance for repentance... but do you not believe that person should have that chance? Paul was a self
proclaimed murderer... yet you say he was forgiven, so why shouldn't a person who works on the sabbath be given that same oppourtunity?
Moses was a murderer...
Joshua was a commander of an army or two... he was also a murderer
So was David... and of course good ol Paul...
All people that murdered in cold blood, and yet they were forgiven right?
So now its your turn... Mr. RJ
Please explain how a person that breaks the sabbath deserves no chance for repentance.... while some of the heros of the bible can kill thousands of
people and are free to live on?
