No Murder

You shall not murder.  The word is murder, not kill.  Sometimes it gets translated as kill, but that is incorrect.  God commands us to kill to enact justice, as in the execution of a murderer.  He also commanded the Israelite's to make war and David was inspired to kill Goliath.

Murder is the destruction of an innocent person; a person who is made in the image of God.  This is why abortion is morally wrong, it is the killing of an innocent person.  Jesus says we are to love our neighbor as ourselves. 

It is immoral to murder our neighbor and immoral to murder ourselves, that is to commit suicide.  We should never kill unless it is morally justified.  Hating someone who is innocent is also a form of murder, it kills there personality as an individual.  Violence should only be used when other methods have failed to resolve a problem and the issue is one of life and death; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
