Apparently you science book thumpers fail to make the distinction between true Christians, and wolves in sheep's clothing.lol

What if you have no idea what caused the creation event known as the big bang and think atheists just another religious group pushing their own myth about how things came into being?
Anyone who claims to know the ultimate truth and seeks to convert the masses to their "one true faith"...
Yeah, but the atheists and freethinkers don't demand a 10% tithe

Lets just say, that no TRUE Christian would not kill another on the grounds of their beliefs...
But on the other hand Evolutionists have no such qualms.
And of course YOU (and your monumentally massive humongous ego) gets to decide who is and who isn't a "true" Christian, right?

Would you or would you not kill if God commanded you to? Keep in mind that in the golden olden days your god was shall we say, a bit of a cranky pants. Then he sends his hippy son down and chills out for a bit. Then at the end of the story he has another mood swing and turns into a major ahole again.

So remind us again why you're attempting to lecture others in morality when you derive yours only from an invisible magical wizard just because it tells you so, motivate purely out of fear and selfishness?

That was not the question I posted, why do you ask a new question without answering the one I asked as the response to my post asking a question?

It's a simple question:

If your god commanded you to kill, would you obey it?

It's not a difficult question to answer for sane people or atheists, why can't you answer it?
I do not even know what a god is. So to answer it would be silly. As for killing our government kills people every day. We are currently in a perpetual state of war (against a religious group). So that is hardly a big deal.

ahhh..so you would twist the meaning...very devilish of you.. Is it not?lol
Of course! Anyone who merely disagrees with the Almighty YOU "must" be "twisting" things, for you are nothing but a pure and good "true" Christian.

And presumably accept the Word Of God that the Earth is flat, correct?

After all, you wouldn't TWIST scripture to suit your convenience would you?

Nor the victims of Science experiments, that make the Inquisitions look like a Sunday picnic.
Victims of science? So you would blame a hammer and not the person who wields it? Good stuff. That absolves all evolutionists of anything then!

not gonna argue over a foolish technicality. Can you honestly say you didn't comprehend the meaning of it?
That's just it, there is no meaning behind "that's not a true ..." whatever you want to fill in unless you can assert, with solid and verifiable evidence, what "true" is. Just claiming it's not a "true" whatever because you disagree with it, or don't like it, doesn't cut it, that's called an excuse, or better, the no true Scotsman fallacy.

I am not the one claiming it's based on reality, I am asking that since you think it's reality, you lied when you stated your god would never command killing. You are a liar ... or a troll, starting to think you're a troll now.
apparently you just think all the killing in the bible is real...what's up with that? Is it not true?

...have you ever heard of selective hearing?

Your understanding of God leaves much to be desired....but if you wish an answer on a layman level...
Your understanding of God is no better than anyone else's. You don't know any more about God than anyone else does. You are not more special than anyone else. You are not the world's greatest Biblical scholar. Of course you COULD claim that God gave you a happy after a personal visitation to your room but bear in mind that even most Christians would probably call BS.

"Thou shall not kill"...was God's commandment...God has already answered your question before you asked.
Like I said, tell it to the Amalekites. There are also numerous laws in Leviticus if I recall EXPLICITLY calling for the execution of those who commit various alleged misdeeds.

Define god. Does it mean a life form so far more advanced than you are that it seems to be...?
Besides thou shalt not kill was never meant to be taken literally. The punishment for violating most of the laws back then was to be stoned to death by a mob.
If the commandment...'thou shalt not kill' is not meant to be taken literally, does that mean all the other commandments are not to be taken literally???

Would this also filter down to perhaps mean the other stories are just parables and allegory...no flood, no Adam and Eve, no Exodus, etc, etc.???
