Thou shalt not kill
Category : Uncategorized
Kinda says it all, doesn’t it?
My version of the Bible (I don’t actually own a Bible, although I may have a Chinese-language one around the house somewhere – I mean the version I read when I was younger) does not in any qualify this commandment. It simply says “thou shalt not kill” with no ifs, ands, or buts.
It does not say “thou shalt not kill humans” or “thou shalt not kill Canadians”. No, it simply prohibits killing – which would include all killing. Even that pair of leather shoes involved killing.
I mean, if God said it, shouldn’t we listen and at least make an effort to not kill, especially when we don’t need to?
