I guess I can get back into blogging, then.
Having dinner with samnanna and cannopener and got into a small debate. cannopener called me on where morality comes from, exactly.
Well, I'm still thinking about that. But I want to quickly point out one wrong answer.
cannopener stated, as one moral precept, that there is never a justifiable reason for killing a person. Where did this idea come from? More specifically, where did it not come from?
James 1:1314 says "Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed." Assuming the Bible is true, therefore, nothing God tells anyone to do is evil.
Now go look up:
Deuteronomy 13 (all of it)
I Samuel 15:23
In all these passages and more, God tells people to kill other people. Therefore, the idea that it is never justifiable to kill a person directly contradicts the Bible.
Your ball, cannopener; why do you believe it is never justifiable to kill a person?
