Ratsach, like many other words, has a wide range of meaning, and thus its meaning in a particular verse must be determined from both the immediate and remoter contexts. Thankfully, the Bible has a lot to say about murder, manslaughter, the execution of criminals and killing in war, and it is easy to tell by studying all the verses on the subject that the Sixth Commandment means not to take a life unjustly. Bible commentators are not confused by the commandment,“You shall not kill.” Maxie Dunnam wrote about the Sixth Commandment in the Mastering the Old Testament commentary on Exodus:
According to Genesis 9:6, this commandment did not prohibit the death penalty. It is obvious in the Old Testament that this [Sixth Commandment] was not a prohibition against all killing, only unauthorized killing.[1]
Because the Bible has clear teaching on murder and manslaughter, and because saying,“You shall not kill,” confuses people about killing in self-defense, in war and the execution of criminals, most modern versions properly translate ratsach in the Sixth Commandment as “murder.” For example:
New King James Version: You shall not murder.
Revised English Bible: Do not commit murder.
New International Version: You shall not murder.
New American Standard Bible: You shall not murder.
New Revised Standard Version: You shall not murder.
Amplified Bible: You shall not commit murder.
New English Bible: You shall not commit murder.
Tanakh (Jewish Publication Society): You shall not murder.
The above versions of the Bible were produced by teams of scholars with differing theological backgrounds, including Protestant, Anglican, Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Jewish scholars. It should be clear from the evidence that the Sixth Commandment is not about the death penalty, but about unjust killing, that is, murder.
"unauthorized killing" implies that killing could be authorized, by who?

Would you please stop the bible babbling for a minute and address the question?
People will never go extinct, all those in heaven will live forever. That is the purpose of life, to live. God created mankind because she was lonely and she wants everybody to live beyond this short earthly life in heaven forever. Angels are immortal.

False.
Christianity has thrown Judaism out. Jesus taught we must observe the Torah, not the paganized pretend christian 'holydays'.
My DNA still says JEW...
"Jew" is both an ethnicity and a religion. A Jew cannot change his genes but can change his religion. Jewish and Christian are terms that are mutually exclusive, you can't be both at the same time (belief wise) Christianity is idolatry and is expressly forbidden in the torah.

I am by no means a denier if science but I am a fundamentalist. The prophets of the OT had an understanding of science. Dan. 1:4o

But the bible never went into the question of science. It was all allegorical and metaphorical at best when touching upon any scientific theme.

If you are not a denier of science, why cant you pick a position on climate change that involves the application of science?

God is subject to the rules and laws of science but also transcends them. That is the definition of a miracle. The earth needs to be renewed, it's like changing the oil in your car every 3000 miles and recreation has happened before, the flood and ice ages for example.

What?

You've understood nothing about the way Consciousness acts in the waking, subliminal, supraphysical, disembodied and subconscient states.

But then I don't blame you for being ignorant about something as fundamental as Consciousness and its workings since the Tanakh and NT fail to explain Consciousness and not surprisingly these infantile scriptures are more comfortable dealing with animal/human sacrifice, wars, genocides, dying on the cross, fanaticism, baby bashing, stoning disobedient sons to death, incest, warnings against the worship of other petty beings and other evils. These are the teachings of backward cults like Judaism and Christianity.

Besides, science, too, hardly knows anything about the true nature and workings of Consciousness and the way its acts in matter and is content to view Consciousness as a derivative of matter when every indicator, inference and proof refutes this naive assumption.

Anyway, carry on.

BTW, most dreams are of the subconscient variety.....

Unconscious?

There's nothing like a permanent or temporary switching off or extinction of consciousness.

What the ordinary people call "unconscious" simply means a retreat of the surface consciousness into its subliminal or subconscient depths or it could also mean that the waking consciousness has come out of the body during an OBE.

Like energy, consciousness can neither be created nor destroyed.

Consciousness and Energy form a unified field that manifests as a gradation.

Consciousness is awareness + intelligence + information. Consciousness always carries with it a concomitant energy that makes it dynamic by nature and helps it in realizing its intent. The deeper the state of consciousness, the greater its potency.

Both a Benevolent Being and the Devil can be Merciful or Compassionate to their loyal human followers. The Absolute is beyond all these inferior attributions.

THE ASURA EL:

An Asura like say the Middle Eastern El (the Demon-God of the Babylonians, Agurites, Sumerians, Egyptians, Hebrews, Christians, Muslims and others) can be Merciful, Loving, Cruel, Forgiving, Loving, Bloodthirsty, Martial, Violent, Unjust, Just, Fanatical, Jealous and can have any number of anthropopathic traits.

ROFL.

Of course, Mr Rosenthal was a member of an elite, openly Satanic minority among the Jewish people. Everyday Jews do not know that the G-d of their cult is in fact an Asura or a Demon hiding behind a mystical name borrowed from the pre-Hebrew mystery cults of the Middle East. ROFL.

EL & YHVH ARE BAALS (ASURAS OR DEMONS):

Now, while El, the pre-Hebrew deity of the Middle East that was later borrowed by the Hebrew patriarchs, is a known Demon who relishes human sacrifices and other evils, YHVH ( the tetragrammaton) too, has demonic roots as can be seen below:

1) The Jewish Encyclopedia ("Adonai and Baal") reveals: "The name BAAL , apparently as an equivalent for YHVH."

2) When dissected in the Hebrew, the true definition of Jehovah (Yah-Hovah) is revealed:

"Yah" means "god", while "Hovah" translates to "eagerly coveting, falling, desire, ruin, calamity, iniquity, mischief, naughtiness, noisome, perverse, very wickedness."

So, YHVH is synonymous with Baal, an Asura (Demon).

CONCLUSION: Both El and YHVH are names of Demons.

get off your high horse
I did not say that judaism is not based on deeds. They are a racist religion and they want to keep the message of truth with themselves and do not want to share it with world.

Christianity, thanks to St. Paul is transformed for ever....the deed part has gone in background. What you need is "faith" that Jesus died for you!!
