After looking at this thread I began to wonder if murder is actually sinful. I mean, if I kill someone the they must've actually deserved it, right? Then I'm just doing justice. And since I'm a creation of God, I'm pretty much allowed to use my own conscience and reason.

Sure the "10 Commandments" say not to kill, but Jesus fulfilled the law, right? And we are all priests. Besides, the "commandments" are only, like, suggestions anyways, right? We don't really use the Sabbath anymore!  police

Or, you could quit making these smarmy little self-congratulatory threads, and just go scratch yourself.

since no One knows when life begins, it seems that we should not limit the right to kill.

That's it, I'm cutting you off for the night. You've had way too much to drink! I may be a "misogynist dumbass" (in your own words) but I know when you're intoxicated.

LOL.

There are many excuses that I have seen the 10 commandments broken.  "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill. (Matt 5:17)

That's why re-incarnationists kill people all the time.
