Keep the commandments and that really includes not killing anyone for any reason. I guess if someone forces your hand by physically attacking you or yours first, God will judge accordingly.
Someone once said “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” but I don’t really think planning something good and not acting on it would get you damned for all eternity. I’ve known lots of lazy people and I don’t equate not having gumption or passion as evil. I tend to believe that planning something evil you never act on would be more apt to send your soul to hell, Biblically speaking. Now look at all the evil intent acted on. Special hot seat for that, I would think.
Jesus said that if you loved Him you would keep His commandments of loving God and loving one another. There is nothing about our current culture in America that shows there is any keeping of these commandments, especially the first one. Even most comments you see on social media say “God is dead” and that rumor was started back in the 1960’s by someone on drugs, so you know it must be true! (Sarcasm)
As long as some nitwit says God is dead, then lets just do whatever we want for the moment that makes us feel good! Lets just act on every animal urge we have! Oh wait, that might not work out in a society with other people that are doing the same thing and we all think differently. This is why we have always had specific social mores that were accepted as the norm and practiced by all in any civilized society. If you thought differently and acted on it, you kept it hidden. In the closet was the term some used, and for good reason. Even if you had unnatural urges or desires that you refused to ignore, you did care about your standing in the community as well as caring about offending and alienating others. Now not only do these hypocritical bullies not care who they offend, but do it deliberately getting laws passed to protect their assaults and offenses to others in the name of their biased freedoms while at the same time denying anyone else their rights.
I believe the biggest example of perversion in our American society is the mass slaughter of the unborn by mothers with obviously no maternal instincts. Drugs and alcohol destroy the brain and other organs, and sadly many of the women that get legal abortions are party girls. I know this because I know many that have done this. A number of them used to use legal abortions as birth control and there was never any limits or deterrents to this kind of behavior, which is very sad for the women involved and their unborn. How low is a society that encourages and promotes any woman to be their worst as a human being? Supporting someone in their sin is not helping them, except to indeed go further down a slope of self-hatred and complete inner destruction to where some of these women had to live out the rest of their days higher than a kite just to live with themselves after what their society let them do.
Just to save money on welfare the government spreads the liberal propaganda that this form of murder is “legal” in their eyes so it’s one of your “freedoms” or “rights.” I have seen first hand the horror and destruction of having “freedom” to end your own child’s life.
Abortion is the biggest lie and biggest sin in America today and I’m not even going to get into the statistics of the poor little victims with no voice of their own and what they could have contributed to our world had they been allowed to live.
