Couple of Genesis Questions Gen. Ch. 9- 4 But you must never eat animals that still have their lifeblood in them. What exactly does this mean? 5 And murder is forbidden. Animals that kill people must die, and any person who murders must be killed. 6 Yes, you must execute anyone who murders another person, for to kill a person is to kill a living being made in God's image. I don't know what to say... Can someone explain, because this can't be right.
