Murder?
« on: September 17, 2006, 11:14:15 AM »

Dear Ray,
 
Why did God command Israel to murder in the OT despite the commandment "Thou Shall Not Kill"? Didnt Jesus say, "love your enemies"?
 
Thanks for everything, God has truly blessed me through your site. Hope to hear from you soon God bless.

Dear Joed:
You have it completely backwards:  God commanded Israel to "kill" their enemies, however, the seventh commandment is "thou shalt not MURDER." The same holds for the New Tesament commandment (Matt. 5:21). The translators didn't quite get that one right.  God used his physical nation of Israel to Judge the heathens in the land of Canaan, where as in the future God will use his Spiritual Nation of Israel to Judge the whole world system of Babylon the Great.
God be with you,
Ray
