  • Contradicting Itself

    Bible Laws:
    1.) Do not kill
    2.) Must follow laws

    but what if there was a law that you must kill, contradicting itself? i think so!

    Tell me now, would someone go to hell either way since if they kill they're breaking bible but if they don't kill their still breaking bible by not following the law that made them do so.

      Nowhere that has nothing to do with it lol, I said what if a STATE / COUNTRY LAW forced you to kill. Well my friend, then you have to make a choice, break the law and go to hell or kill and go to hell. That was my question ;]

        Ummm, it's murder that is wrong, not killing. God kills, has man kill, and when He returns will kill. So let's keep this in proper terms.

        Killing is God's way to see His will be done. Protecting is His will, thus the need for soldiers and police to kill. Setting up for His Son was His holy will and used man to kill everything in the way of this.

        Murder is satan's twist on killing to thwart God and destroy man and God's will for man.

        Question, as a Christian why are you asking this the way you did? Seems you're actually trying to find fault in God's will or His Word. So instead of asking us, place yourself before God and allow Him to lead you through scripture led by the Holy Spirit to find answers. Don't read the Bible as a book, but instead as the Word of God cause the Bible isn't what God "said", it's what God is "saying". What He's saying is clear about this topic.

        Figure I'd point that out to ya.

          you don't go to hell by standing in Gods Law.

          one might get you prison, the other ^ will get you Hell

          and there is a difference between killing and murdering

            One thing that is essential to the Faith is that the Bible does not contradict itself, so there is not a possibility of being faced with such a dilimma. Nothing can be possible and impossible at the same time.

            But there are places in the Bible that are obscure until it is investigated deeply enough to be understood correctly. The so-called contradictions of the Bible are never contradictions but areas that takes a deeper understanding of the Bible and it's message as a whole.

            As for killing, there are different levels of what killing is, such as killing in self defense, murder, accidental... Times that God had called for people to be killed was actually a self defense kind of command. God having a foreknowledge can see how some people would threaten the spiritual and physical existance of His people, so there has been times that God made commands in order to prevent it from happening. But God has never commanded that someone be murdered in the sense of evil.

              Ugh your guys are making this hard, yes I was refering to murder the government telling you to kill for no reason ;p obey the governenment or the bible? technically either way you are disobeying the bible through murder or just by not obeying the law. And no I'm not questioning God I'm asking your guys opinion because if I'm ever told by the gov to kill I'd like to know if I still have a fighting chance of getting into to heaven.

                You just don't do it. You don't compremise GOD because man says to do something against the will of God. The fiery furnace is a good example of not giving it to the whims of man.

                    Hard to answer this the way it's been presented

                    For example, a man is found guilty of rape/murder and is sentenced to death. I would have no problem pulling the trigger. An enemy attacks this country and I'm told to go into another country and hunt the people who attacked us and all thier friends (anyone who harbors them), I would have no problem pulling the trigger as I did this for 21 years as an Infantryman anyway. Someone breaks into my house and can hurt me due to a weapon they have or because of their threatening attitude, my 12ga shotgun will stop this threat.

                    Paul had his life threatened and discovered a plot to kill him and he accepted the help from those soldiers. This is a man empowered my God to do His will and spread the gospel yet he still needed mans help to protect him. God uses man to help and protect (defensively or offensively) and if a government uses it's authority in a righteous way as this, then I see nothing wrong in "following orders".

                    Just to go out and threaten other nations (Germany in WWII as example), or use your "power" as a goverenment to keep your own citizen's freedom suppressed (Iraq as of 2003 and back for 30 years), are not good examples for "following orders" cause this violence is unrighteous and are just two examples of the type of violence that John the Baptist was talking about in Luke 3:14 that we sould not do as soldiers.

                        Cool, just keep in mind that the Bible doesn't contradict... it's our understanding that is lacking and sometimes man cannot help. That is why I told ya to just ask God and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you. Read the Bible in the spirit and allot more is revealed.

                          you are nick picking about a word used, as in war, capital punishment, if you are the person who is responsible to pull the switch on the electric chair, you are not accounted for their death! come on, I think you are smarter than that. you just want to fight against God , the one who only loved you
                          Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

                            I admire you for asking hard questions! Keep seeking.

                            The above quotation from you really jumped out at me. We don't get to heaven by keeping God's laws. We can't; we all fall way short! Jesus died for us and paid our price so that we can have eternal life. Because of Jesus, we get to have a relationship with God--starting now here on earth, and then continuing in heaven forever.

                            If your REAL question is "How can I ensure I'm going to heaven?" then the answer is in Romans 10:9--"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

                              I do not have the materials in fron of me, but I am sure some of you can cite the proper sources. There are two different Hebrew words for murder and kill. The command actually states to not murder.
