    I do understand that abortion should be legal because It’s safer that way. The purpose of religion I think regarding that is just to say killing is wrong. I mean I’m not thrilled about abortion so I think it’s a good thing that we have it jotted down in some dusty book that killing is wrong so before we jump to conclusions and blame religion for all the abortion related strife I think we can use our common sense and realize that religion is just answering the question of if ending life is bad. No big deal really

    Except when they harass those going to abortion clinics, kill doctors for performing abortions and blow up buildings. Then it becomes a big deal

    Unfortunately that probably would still be true if the only writing that ever existed was ‘killing is Wrong’ chiseled on a rock somewhere.
    Guess we’d blame the rock at that point

    Hello PowerStone,

    The question seems to be is killing wrong?

    My self believe that even hatred is a form of murdering another person~ without actual murder. (1 John 3:14-16) - Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer : This scripture is one reason why I do say this. (Hatred/murder/killing - is not good ~ or healthy)

    You might believe other wise, but these are some of my own thoughts on killing/murder/hatred.

    But then again what does killing mean? Killing animals to survive and eat, killing human beings, Killing elderly?

    What do you think about killing/Murder ? Is it okay to you?

    Murder doe snot mean "Any killing I dislike".
    The word murder has a precise meaning "illegal/unlawful killing"

    Your misuse of the word makes taking your post seriously all but impossible.

    Hello Mestemia,

    If it is okay, would like to bring up what the word murder means, was thinking about also doing killing as well.

    Websters New World Dictionary ~ Second College Edition cc. 1984

    Murder: 1. The unlawful and malicious also, any killing done while committing some other felony, as rape or robbery

    2. [Colloq.] Something very hard, unsafe, disagreeable to do or deal with

    1. To Kill (a person) unlawfully and with malice

    2. to kill inhumanly or barbarously, as in warfare

    3. to spoil, mar, etc, as in (performance of a song murdered in the rendition)

    ~~ To commit murder ~ Syn. see KILL `` get away with murder [Slang] to escape detection of or punishment for a blameworthy act -- murder will out

    1. a murder or murderer will always be revealed

    2. any secret or wrong doing will be revealed sooner or later -- murderer or murderess

    If you or your religion is against abortion you must ask yourself ...
    • Do you support social care for unwanted babies that are born, or for mothers who can't afford to bring them up. And for the mental health of the mothers, is support offered free.
    • Do you support better sex education and contraceptive being made freely available.
    • Do you support the abolition of the death penalty? That's murder too.
    • Do you support gun control - the number of guns causes many death, many that are murder.?
    • Do you support Universal Healthcare which will save the lives of many poor.
    • Do you condone your god murdering people?

    The funny thing about religion is, it says "thou shalt not kill," but it proceeds to give many, many, many circumstances in which killing is required, condoned, and commanded.

    This is my question @Power Stone

    From your original post :

    The question seems to be is killing wrong?

    My self believe that even hatred is a form of murdering another person~ without actual murder. (1 John 3:14-16) - Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer : This scripture is one reason why I do say this. (Hatred/murder/killing - is not good ~ or healthy)

    You might believe other wise, but these are some of my own thoughts on killing/murder/hatred.

    But then again what does killing mean? Killing animals to survive and eat, killing human beings, Killing elderly?

    What do you think about killing/Murder ? Is it okay to you?

    What are any persons thoughts here about killing and murder?

    Is it okay to you to kill and murder?

    Personally do not believe that killing and murdering are any way profitable at all. Though some may disagree and condone murdering, there are some people who are far out there.

    You can learn a lot from tv, about murders/ and anything else dark on the internet, and not just on the internet, but in human hearts. ~ Darkness of the human mind/emotion/heart/will?

    But some may not believe that all human hearts are bad by default, and are in need of renewing ~ But (finding answers come from the bible ~ about ~ God or the Lord Jesus Christ) ~ Though let me tell you do not trust me when it comes to what I believe because

    Each person needs to think, and formulate thoughts in their mind, from their hearts, and question everything they come across in life, and see what is true testing everything aspect of life, might as well while we have one life to live.​

    best regards ~ Matthew
