whose war strategies ? whose doing the allowing ?You're jumping in in the middle of the conversation. I've already said that war strategies allow for deceiving the enemy, and certainly for killing the enemy.
do you even know if In a war is right or wrong to kill the enemy?
what verse says that ?But Jesus also said to love your enemy. So killing men is forbidden, except when the alternative is worse in some way.
Jesus also said this :
(Luke 19:27 [MKJV]) But those who are my enemies, who did not desire that I should reign over them, bring them here and slay them before me.
which belief do you hold ?Deceiving men might be treated the same way. But neither should be thought of as righteous acts without the added circumstances. Surely David shouldn't have had Uriah killed, even though he was the enemy (a Hittite), and they were supposed to drive the Hittites from the land. They were even allowed to take the women for wives from the enemy when they conquered a people.
situational ethics or
was David right or wrong when he killed Goliath ?
