New Covenant

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?
in response to reader comment: The Bible says kill

Submitted by Larry B. (United States), May 20, 2008 at 20:46

Dear sTs.

My apologies, as a Christian, I believe the Whole Bible for instruction, and historical instruction. But, I am a follower of the New Covenant or Testament of our Lord Jesus Christ. Nowhere in that portion of the book will you find any instructions to kill for or in ther name of God. Jesus says he has already overcome.

As for the old Testament prophecies and advice from God to the children of Abraham,Issac and Jacob, his instructions were to kill them all. I wonder if that command had been carried out to the letter if the world would have been better off today?
