Why wouldn't these otherwise sinless creatures get along without killing each other? Why would God allow this one and only sin be okay for all other creatures?
Im sorry... That's what I was trying to say is that yes, we DO kill for land and territory. And yet, do we, in our hearts, allow that as ok? Mostly no. Most would protest such a thing. Imagine the US invading Canada because the US is becoming too big and simply taking over. But yet, this happens everyday in the wild (granted on a MUCH smaller scale).
So then if at certain times killing one IS okay... Who decides what is worth killing for and what is not? Someone said rapists... But what if that rapists was just a product of being raped his/her whole life by his/her parents... Then shouldn't the parents be the ones who are sentenced to death? Welll, I guess that gets into a whole different debate.
How do you know when that lion is lying and watching gazelle lickin his chops...etc. That he is not plotting and planning..I kind of think he is.
The rapists he can not be of sound mind, so how can we as humane people put him to death for doing what he was taught. Maybe murders are just releasing their victims soul so that they can re enter earth school on another plane or the criminal being put to death gets to come back to the school of earth and try again, to be a kinder more gentle soul. I wonder...
