    Deut. - What a PRECIOUS book. It's so full of God's love, patience and wisdom. Somewhere in Deut. it states that His commandments are not grievous - and is reiterated in 1Jn.5:3. And it's SO true; His commandments are so easy to live with. And - CHEAPER! I save $40 a week since He delivered me from tobacco 3 yrs. ago. I give that to Him every week.

    God only allow them to kill their enemies because he knew they were going to kill them.he does not want us to kill anyone but he will not allow u to be a target of your enemies.the same thing goes for the world system if some one break in your house and u kill them that is call self defense u will not go to jail for that so when your enemies have a plan to hurt u some time God will shield u from the trouble only God knows what action u need to take because God not only knows your hart he know y ur enemies hart as well. when a person get kill u may say o he was a preacher or a Christian the question is were they really saved just because u act saved go to church preach do things in church that do not mean u are saved the good that u do cannot saved u .u must be born again we cannot fool God we can fool man and women.No weapons form against God children will proper Amen
