What did jesus meant when he said "Thou shall not kill"?


Does this refers only to humans or to all living beings? I mean should we NOT kill other living beings as well? ALL Christians are non-vegetarians and so you ALL are DIS-OBEYING Jesus by killing and eating them (animals, birds) You are commiting sins by eating non-veg.

    Law keepers always try to justify their 10 commandment keeping by Matt. 5:17-19. Lets look at what Jesus intent is when He states, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. (“For assuredly

    Animals were not put on this earth to feed us. They were put here to experience life, just as we were. What a horrible attempt to justify human beings selfishness. God would be ashamed at our lack of respect for other living beings.

    Hey blue! Happy to see you again. Is it time to talk about the girl Jesus yet?

    Funny thing about consuming flesh... You take on some death too. A little at a time. All death is suicide you know. One way or another.

    GOD is a "HEART" GOD!

    As Manatita said "Watch your motive!"

    SPIRITUALLY speaking: ANYTHING that "causes one's brother to stumble" (Rm 14:13-23; I Cor 8:13) is also "killling" which leads to "eternal death!"

    God said we are the rulers of the earth, so it is o.k. to kill animals to suit our needs, as long as we kill them ONLY to suit our needs of nourishment.

    I cont to "chg fm glory to glory" (II Cor 3:18) & Bible says we are to obey the laws of the land (Rm 13; military) & would've contradicted Himself which is impossible.

    Therefore, "carnally," there is a diff between "killing" (military) &

    Jesus never said this . The correct translation is "not murder" Killing is at time necessary and is not forbidden in war and self protection

    Have to put the 2nd part of statement here.Sorry! The bible was re-written over 600 times by the romans.It is well documented that Jesus wrote in the book of the holy 12 which is all about animals.The romans took that book out because it didn't fit.

    It means in reality you shall not kill, No killing at all by polices ,soldiers, executors, This is by the law of God . That is why Jesus Christ says not to kill He can not go against His Father in heaven Were we know that we can not kill animals ?

    Killing or murder is the same action to take a life away . Because God put you shall not kill people say murder it is OK , If God would of say you shall not murder people would of say killing is OK.

    Rm 14:2=Yes, "weak" but maybe made "strong" by GOD (I Cor 3:6 "keep teaching Judah") & is why Col 2:16 "..let no man judge you in meat, or drink.." is written!
