Killing:

In war soldiers are trained to fight and killingss and much carnage and destruction take place as a result of war. The purpose of war has much to do with men’s consciences. Is it for the purpose of the defense of the nation against an aggressor or for the expansion of an empire and men’s evil purposes? During and in the aftermath of war men can be haunted in their dreams and by the memories of dark things that happened. How does one find relief from the regrets of life? After one’s period of military service a person thinks differently than before he enlisted. Life’s experiences good and bad effect the man. So, how to find and make peace with one’s past is key to one’s future? This journey is the subject of many books. The Veterans Administration employs an army of doctors, nurses, counselors and administrators to help veterans scared by the aftermath of war and resulting problems associated with their battle scars. Of course we all know that the bible forbids killing…. Or does it? There is a vast difference between killing and murder. Murder is what is forbidden, not killing. A soldier is under orders. Even if the results of battle were not what was intended, responsibility for the effects of war flow up the chain of command. The key to the healing of the mental scars of war is this: Were you following lawful orders and was killing or murder the result Ultimately one is accountable to God not man. And he is merciful to one who repents where sin has been the result. So, are you guilty of sin? If so, repent and accept God’s forgiveness. If you are not guilty of sin don’t let Satan falsely accuse you.
