The sixth commandment is clear,THOU SHALT NOT KILL.But yet I wonder, what if...are their exceptions to this rule?Its unequivocal,the WORD OF GOD. I think all humans has a killer in them,giving the right circumstances the killer will emerge. If you walked into your home,God forbid & you find your wife & little daughter raped and butchered,& the pervertous murderer still standing there leering at you,and there's a loaded gun on the floor,I think its safe to assume the outcome. Atlease 7 or 8 out of 10. But what about when the Antichrist is revealed,& the new age movement is taking over,& christians have to run for cover and all, do we need protection,too? Jesus said,if any has no sword,let him sell his garment and buy one. A lot of people think its figurative,but its application hardly qualifies as a metaphor.Their sword then is our gun.We dont go about killing,but when the Antichrist hits the scene,which is like really soon,we need as much protection as we can get from The Age of Aquarius.No zealotry intended!
I think no, finding exceptions is what got us into trouble in the first place and second. I hear ya though, all I would say is, you better forgive him before you do the same thing lol, ya hear?
And let God sort it out.
btw- it's a joke, I don't believe killing is right for anyone to do but I am not gonna try and kid myself. If I came home to something like that, you bet your ass I would probably try to kill him too so hopefully the police would come before I did anything I would regret. Lord knows I would be praying for someone to come restrain me.
Tell you what - stop all religious killing today and don't restart until the 'antichrist' turns up. That way we'll have peace for a few thousand years...
Interesting. I went to look up the passage because I could have *sworn* that it said "thou shalt not murder" in the King James Version but I was wrong. I wonder what the exact translation is from the original Hebrew? You're right, it's clear, and yet Levitical Law included allowance for capital punishment, did it not?
Yes, levitical law did included an allowance for capital punishment. Its interesting really, the contrast between the old and the new testament, and how the concrete nature of the old testament typifies the intangible nature of the new. However, I think when the Antichrist is revealed a lot will change. First, once anyone consentfully takes his mark, he is damned, condemned forever. All the Antichrist' goons will have the mark, their sons of perdition, with no other will than his. If you, pardon my french, burst a cap in their ass, would that be so wrong?
It's hard to speak to something that isn't currently happening. I'm not a generally violent person and I can't see myself resorting to murder, regardless. I would rather take the bullet myself and go home to God than kill someone else, even if he or she had taken the mark of the beast.
But if they came after my daughter? Well that's something else.
My husband keeps pointing out how polar our world is becoming. Those who believe are getting stronger in their faith and those who don't are getting stronger in *their* faith (that there is nothing).
Yeah I think we are suppose to take the bullet like EM and Sandra said and like a family in the Machabees did in the Old Testament. Machabees is not in most Bibles but it's in the Douay-Rheims Bible or this version of the King James Bible has what some call the Apocrypha. Or the early Christian martyrs or Christian martyrs through out history for that matter. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I remember reading there will be a safe place or places for Christians in that time. This is an interesting topic so I'll see if I can find it later. This is also a good reason why we should try to convince our loved ones not to enlist in the armed forces and refuse a draft these days. We wouldn't want them to be at Megiddo at that time. The Levitical Law was made void for Christians with the first coming of Jesus Christ and the New Covenant.
"I once shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die...."
The woman in Revelations 12 is obviously the Blessed Virgin Mary but the Church is also referred to as the woman (bride of Christ and all). So there's a possibility that Revelations 12:6 may be referring to a safe place prepared by God for Christians in that end time. I'd be interested if anyone else finds anything on this.
Revelations 12:6 "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that there they should feed her a thousand two hundred sixty days."
That's the three and a half years of tribulations (1260 divided by 30 = 42 months or 3 1/2 years).
And it doesn't look like we are suppose to put up a fight.
Revelations 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of the testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death.
No we don't want to follow our leaders on that great day of the Almighty God.
Revelations 16:13 And I saw from the mouth of the dragon, and from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. 14 For they are the spirits of devils working signs, and they go forth unto the kings of the whole earth, to gather them to battle against the great day of the Almighty God.
The King James Bible basically says the same.

When you read the Book of Revelations, it reads like a good sci-fy story, or mythical mystery novel does. Maybe this is because of the fact that the Book of Revelations is virtually a storyline about a dream, which a...
