Thou shalt not kill is a slight mistranslation. The original sentiment was "don't murder" meaning kill another of your own kind without reason. Old testament God LOVED war.
#31 to #5 - anon (04/07/2013) [-]
Plus after the whole torn tarps thing the whole Old Testament is completely irrelevent
User avatar #120 to #5 - mailstrom (04/07/2013) [-]
why did i read 'mistranslation' as 'menstruation'?
#137 to #120 - anon (04/07/2013) [-]
because you are ******* retarded.

No he didn't He HATED killing anyone. There's a scene where the angels are rejoicing in the death of the Egyptians and God rebukes them saying something along the lines of "Those were my children too, you ********* !" God didn't want to kill anyone, ever. He only did because he had too. In the case of the Egyptians, it was to guarantee the Jews loyalty to God now and forever.

When the Jews were nearing Israel, they had to walk through Canaan. The Canaanites would not let the Jews pass. God forbade the Jews from attacking the Canaanites and told them to go around the Canaanites, which would have added years to the Jews' exodus. Instead, the Jews attack the Canaanites, which made God furious. God is more like a stern Father than a warmonger or Benevolent Being.

I know my **** , trust me, just look at my name.

God killed 2,476,633 people across the bible. I'm pretty sure he's comfortable with murder.

Watch out, he pulled a blogspot on us. You totally can't just say whatever you want on that website though. The guy doesn't give any evidence of these killings.

No one in the history of everything would have been killed, were it not for sin.
User avatar #83 to #26 - skrynox (04/07/2013) [-]
Dude, there were stories in the Bible where God told his people to go to a city and kill the men, and then kill the women and children, because if they had left them alive they would've grown up and posed a threat to God's people. So God just had them wiped out. I'm sure he doesn't like killing, but sometimes it's essential.

Ecclesiastes 3:8

A time to love, and a time to hate; A time for war, and a time for peace.

Pretty sure war is killing bro
#73 to #64 - knowstoomuch (04/07/2013) [-]
Doesn't mean that he enjoys it.
#77 to #73 - yomommabinshoppin (04/07/2013) [-]
Of course he didn't but war is still permitted, death of your enemies should never be enjoyed, but he still allows it from time to time, because death is sometimes necessary, so no, God didn't ban killing all together
#79 to #77 - knowstoomuch (04/07/2013) [-]
That I agree with. My main problem was Anon's statement "Old testament God LOVED war. " I think we both agree he did not.

Actually, that translation should be "thou shalt not murder," not "thou shalt not kill." Murder implies injustice, killing simply implies ending a life. It is also interesting to note, however, that after Jesus the early Christians (who branched off from the Judaism of the Ten Commandments) were complete pacifists. They never fought and accepted death for their religion but never killed for it. What had changes, you ask?

1. Jesus provided an ethic of love. Judaism only provided an ethic of duty/ law and justice.
2. Probably more importantly and at least more intriguing, Christianity developed the idea of heaven and hell. The Israelites had no such well developed concept, though resurrection was becoming a popular belief among Jews at the time of Christ (for anyone who actually cares, resurrection wasn't even spoken of in the Bible until the book of Daniel, which occurs chronologically near the end of the Old Testament age under the exile enforced by Babylon). To the Jews, this life is where you get your blessings and it is this life that is crucial. Therefore, killing in retributive justice or killing in self defense seemed logical. If you kill someone, they reap no reward for righteousness. The killer, by justice alone, should also be killed so he can gain no forgiveness and blessing. In Christianity, adversely, you gain your reward in the afterlife. There is very little reason to kill and almost no reason to defend yourself against someone who wants to kill you for your religion. Worst case scenario, you end up being in heaven.
TL;DR: Not killing (pacifism) is a Christian idea, not a Jewish idea who instead follow the Ten Commandments and say "Thou Shall Not Murder."

You are correct. They were never in the same room together. God is more of an outdoors person really.

The best part of the Bible is when Jacob is sitting under a tree and God comes up to him in human form and they start fighting and wrestling.

Always liked it, as I am a Jacob as well as a wrestler. I fear the part about the broken hip though.

Actually "Thou shalt not kill" is a misinterpretation.

When correctly translated from Hebrew it says "You shall not MURDER".

Biiiiig difference.
#171 to #80 - anon (04/12/2013) [-]
I definitely read that as biiiiing difference
User avatar #18 - teamrocketninja (04/07/2013) [-]
In the original language, Ive heard the actual translation would be closer to the word murder, rather than kill.
#130 - wefuiwieubf (04/07/2013) [-]
who ever wrote this is a morron, the proper translation is thou shall not murder
#132 to #130 - veryspecialagent (04/07/2013) [-]

#56 - ichbinlecher (04/07/2013) [-]
Technically, the hebrew word is murder. Thou shalt not murder implies there are types of killing that might be permitted if they are not murder - at least that is how the argument goes.
User avatar #39 - lulzdealer ONLINE (04/07/2013) [-]
The actual commandment says "thou shall not murder" not "thou shall not kill", there's a difference. Also, we're also commanded to defend our lives and our families from those who would seek to do us harm, so if someone is trying to kill us, that would be an acceptable time to kill.
#94 to #39 - anon (04/07/2013) [-]
Murder is killing though. If someone were to kill someone else then it would be murder, which is not alowed in this household.

Face to face is translated from בְּאַרְבַּע עֵינַיִם, which means '4 eyes'. That implies that there were only two people, not a mediator. They were speaking to each other, but not while seeing each other

So You're saying the Bible has... mistranslations?

it was written in ancient hebrew, so yeah, some stuff is translated poorly.

Hebrew, Aramaic and a little bit of Greek and Latin
User avatar #102 to #100 - teoberry (04/07/2013) [-]
Yeah. That really messes up translating.

Some languages can't be translated in a literal sense, since other languges don't have the words that Hebrew does.

Read original greek or Hebrew, beautiful stuff.
User avatar #36 to #25 - roliga (04/07/2013) [-]
Don't be a tool, go actually look up each verse and their context.... The first one was saying in a non literal sense "I have seen the face of God" like he has seen the wrong of his own doing and is now accepting Christianity. While the second one is literally saying no one has seen the physical face of God.
User avatar #66 to #36 - redeadhunter (04/07/2013) [-]
Not that it invalidates your point, but I think you mean he accepted Judaism. Christianity didn't exist when Genesis took place, did it?
User avatar #87 to #66 - condormcninja (04/07/2013) [-]
That's just semantics but yeah.
User avatar #115 to #36 - teoberry (04/07/2013) [-]
well put. people look at a bible verse, assume they know what it means, and then judge it based off that. everyone says the bible is chock full of contradictions, but if you look at it, most have explanations, and others are scribal errors
