What Does God Say, Not What Does Angelina Jolie Say?
Recently, an article in Yahoo News stated that Angelina Jolie said she was thankful for the people who were spies, but she could never be one.
I guess that all depends on what the spy is doing. If spying involves getting innocent people tortured, murdered, or imprisoned, I think the world would be better off without that type of behavior.
But, then I don't believe that the "end justifies the means." I believe that God gave us the 10 commandments, not the 10 suggestions.
When we begin to rationalize and justify wrong-doing, then who is to say what is right or wrong?
To believe that this type of behavior is honorable is insane.
