God : "Thou shalt not kill"<quoted text>
Elijah obeyed GOD.
It is that simple.
God, amongst so many others, kills, murders 850 "false prophets". Is God above the very law that he decreed? God kills because men choose another God? I thought God created men free? Did you ever think that the killer Elijah simply had those "false" prophets murdered by his henchmen and again, as we read through the Old Testament, and blamed it on God? So convenient.
