Thou shall not kill? Ok so I've got a question which has been bothering me for a while now and I've asked a number of people who don't know the answer, and don't want to answer in case they are wrong. Ok so one of the commandments directly says not to commit murder. How does this relate to soldiers fighting for the English army against terrorists? Are they going to go hell? My first answer was yes, but after reading 1 Samuel 17 where David defeats Goliath in order to free people I then began to wonder, and wasn't David chosen by God? I'd like to know peoples views on this.
