Yes. to protect Christianity, our way of life, from? Atilla the Hun, The Muslim's trying to take over Europe in the middle ages, The Muslim's trying to protect their homes in the Crusades, People just can't seem to stop stealing, raping, pillaging and trying to convert others to their way of life.
Killing is justified when you are attacked. It isn't only Christians but they are a guilty as anyone else.
theres no justification for that, its just wrong
The Bible also says,
"Turn the other cheek."
"Thou shalt keep the sabbath Holy."
"A woman is not permitted to speak nor have authority over a man."
"Slaves obey your masters, god commands this."
"KILL EVERYONE IN CANAAN, they are defiling the sacred land I promised you (yet forgot to leave unihabited)...Except for the virgins...can't let them go to waste."
Great book.....Pure black Comedy gold.
war itself is wrong, so killing, even in war is wrong too.
1 Blessed be the LORD my strength,
which teacheth my hands to war,
and my fingers to fight:
**Not a justification just an observation. Man cannot justify anything, we just pretend to.
34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person's enemies will be those of his own household. 37 Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
Doesn't sound like a light burden or an easy yoke to me. It really makes one wonder.
It isn't I agree because God wasn't talking about 2013 he walk talking about stone age people that lived in the desert.
Read the whole book, not just excerpts that are meant to be sound bites for the ignorant masses.
You should do the same. Did you know god commanded a couple bears kill a bunch of kids (42) because they called a priest "baldy"?
Yes, yes I did. Next?
I was under the impression that the christian god was Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient, where does that leave himher changing their mind?
You've done nothing to prove your point besides coming across as another Christian residing in its "ignorant mass".
Not to mention if god was omnipotent omnipresent and omniscient why didn't just appear and literally hand the "word of god" to the people. Also why did he ever allow more than one religion? You make no sense.
Nobody can but believe me they will try their best. Wait and see.
Of course you don´t.
