People kill each other - For many reasons:
All of them break God’s ’Ten Commandments’. Hate, envy, jealousy, revenge, and unpaid money debts are a few reasons. Human passion and anger take away our normal common sense and human compassion. These days, alcohol and drugs seem to be making some people very angry and violent. Next morning they feel very different in a Police cell but murder has been done and cannot be reversed. The hot temper and anger have gone but what happened is final. All so very sad for the victim’s family.
In a war, young men are taught (prepared mentally), to kill the enemy and ignore normal feelings. In some wars it is easy – in others it is difficult to kill an enemy person. It is unnatural for most of us to kill. God said in The Ten Commandments: ’Thou shalt not kill.’ Or ’Do not murder.’ It’s a complicated world. (in World War I on one Christmas Day, German and Allied troops forgot the war, and after hearing the ’other side’ who were not too far away, singing Christmas carols the soldiers came out of their trenches to shake hands, say ’Merry Christmas’ and exchange simple gifts of food. The ’top brass’ were furious: and explained loudly that they were: ’…to hate the enemy and kill them.’
