    .. and you are convinced that He is who He says He is,
    and He commands you to go kill someone,
    an adulterer, a homosexual, a murderer etc.

    Would you obey? If not does that make you more righteous than God?

    I know people will ask my answer. I will not obey that command
    And no, my refusal does not make me more righteous than God.

    I would disobey.

    I’d be interested to hear sonship’s answer; no doubt it will be couched in 9 inches of html laced obfuscation.

    I wouldn’t go that far but I won’t go against what I believe to be the right thing.

    That is what the Spirit of Christ is.
    It is the Sprit of God written in the fleshly tables of the heart of men.
    It would stop you from doing what you think is morally wrong.
    In some people this Spirit is weak and they cannot discern right from wrong.
    Not all Christians have it as this thread will demonstrate.

    Most Christians in this forum will either avoid the thread or obfuscate.

    Would it not be a real hoot if he said his name was Krishna ? Om.

    Of course I would try to obey, and the identity of the person I was to kill would not matter.

    Sitting here now, contemplating an abstract forum question, I hope I would fail, but actually believing I am commanded by God to kill, I would try my best to obey. How can it be otherwise?

    Frankly I am surprised by how many self-described Christians on this forum think otherwise of themselves. There are numerous accounts of people being commanded by God to kill. They may all be signs of dementia, but that's how dementia works.

    Such a command would UN-convince anyone who believes in the gospel preached by Jesus during His ministry.

    Israel disobeyed God and look where that got them.
