This thought woke me out of a sound sleep this morning. If that being, he/she/it, that we call God did in fact meet with Moses on the mountain and did in fact give him ten commandments and one of those was THOU SHALT NOT KILL, something is very wrong. First of all notice that they were commandments, not rules, not laws, not suggestions, they were COMMANDS. Second notice that it was Thou Shalt NOT Kill, not thou shalt not kill unless, or except, it was NOT.
As to the ten commandments, people, all people, have been cheerfully breaking each on a daily basis since they were given to us. We all say one thing, that we are believers and go to church to demonstrate our belief, and then go ahead and do something else, proving we are not believers at all.
Back to Thou Shalt Not Kill, just that one, shows that all people are evil.
I can't count the times that I've read, in reference to some one hurting or killing another person, he/she should be shot/hung/suffer the death penalty. In other words killed, in direct opposition to what he/she/it/God commanded.
Of course, our predilection to killing each other, is a form of population control. We haven't seen anything like the plague for a long time, it hasn't been needed as we're killing each other instead.
Unfortunately, the thought that woke me up is gone, and I'm starting to flounder.
