Suppose some perhaps-presumptuous heterosoldier falls on a trigger-pulled hand grenade to save the lives of his surrounding homoqueer soldiers, then the grenade (of course) explodes....blowing the self-sacrificer's guts all over the place.
Causing a double dilemma.
The body-parts-dispersed deceased has either performed or instead committed a "killing". And for what pro-gay-effeminate and/or pro-homosodomite purpose?
Was the suicidal killing a murder....or instead an execution?
If it is considered a [suicidal] murder, does the following (by necessity and by default) apply?:
Numbers 35:30 If any one kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the evidence of witnesses; but no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness.
Numbers 35:31 Moreover you shall accept no ransom for the life of a murderer who is guilty of death; but he shall be put to death.
First Peter 4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a wrongdoer, or a mischief-maker;
First John 3:15 Any one who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.
Or - instead - does the following verse apply?
Romans 5:7 For scarcely will one die for a righteous man, yet perhaps for a good man some would even dare to die.
[ The previous verse might sounds a bit goofy by inferring that a "good" man is better[?] than a "righteous" man, although one might extensively ponder what the difference exactly is between the two types ]
Now, referring to the two Torah passages of Numbers chapter 35 cited above, it almost goes without saying that one who murders themself by either "performing" or instead "committing" suicide on themself cannot be punished by putting the dead to death again.
And the passages of John 8, First Peter 4, and First John strongly insinuate that non-loving and hateful malicious intention is involved in NON-suicidal killing....which perhaps was not the intention of the suicidally blown-up heterosoldier saving the lives of his surrounding homofaggot-pervert bullyboy-or-girlywimp soldiers.
And why would a decently-heterosexual impetuously, impulsively, or deliberately save the lives of indecent homosexuals?
Second Samuel 19:6 ....you love those who hate you and hate those who love you. For you have made it clear today that commanders and servants are nothing to you; for today I perceive that if Absalom were alive and all of us were dead today, then you would be pleased.
Second Chronicles 19:2 But Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat, "Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, wrath has gone out against you from the LORD.
Perhaps aforementioned homos would be converted if they saw the heterosexual blow himself up to save them. Or perhaps they would cheer the event, realizing that the opposition had annihilated himself and they could then go at it without contrary confrontations from the now-silenced "oddball."
Both Jerry Falwell and D. James Kennedy burned themselves out for an immoral majority of godlessly hedonistic americans in their attempts to start and perpetuate a national revival. The fruits which followed were a curious mixture.
Should Christians get so depressed that they suicidally yearn to selfishly take their own lives and thus disappoint and disrupt those loved ones they thoughtlessly, rudely, inconveniently, and abruptly leave behind to pick up incomplete pieces and attempt to carry on alone?
Job 3:3 "Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night which said, 'A man-child is conceived.'
Jeremiah 20:14 Cursed be the day on which I was born! The day when my mother bore me, let it not be blessed!
Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
22 If it is to be life in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell.
23 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.
24 But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.
25 Convinced of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith,
26 so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.
Which gets us into another quandry to contemplate.
The Genesis record states that God created a "subtle" Devil, and allowed him to tempt the overly-talkative and gullible, all-nude inferior-gender, Eve:
Genesis 2:25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, 'You shall not eat of any tree of the garden'?" [e.g. 'You can never ever have sex nor drink any beer whatsoever'?]
2 And the woman said to the [talking] serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; [e.g. 'We can exhibit various degrees and extents of nakedness to solicit sex; and have sex; and drink beer']
3 but God said, 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die [whatever the duce "die" means].'" [e.g. '...but we cannot misdress immodestly to get sex by publicly displaying sexually-harassing loose long hair, sleevesless naked arms, slacksless nude legs, nor socksless feet in flipflop sandals; cannot model for nor produce nor disperse nor search for porn relating to that; cannot commit fornication nor adultery nor sodomy...but only get married to have sex during and within marriage; we can drink beer if we don't get drunk on it] 4 But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not 'die' [whatever the duce "die" meant to the innocent all-naked babe].
5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil [whatever the duce "evil" means]."
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food [oh, WAS it now?], and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise ["wise" - or instead: lamentably and deplorably knowledgeable?], she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, and he ate.
7 Then the eyes of both were opened [a figure of speech, not involving bloody scalpel lacerations into eyeballs], and they knew that they were naked [no longer non-cognizant birthday-suit-bare dummies]; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons [the "bare" minimum?].
There are some strange English words in the Biblical? Text? above.
Subtle? creature? How about instead: deceptive? creature?
To increase perplexity, the following is stated about the creation of Satan the Garden Tempter:
Genesis 1:31 And God saw everything that He had made, and hey: it was very good [?]. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day [Heb. yom, which when combined with a qualifying ordinal number and the Hebrew idiomatic phrase "...and there was evening and there was morning..." ONLY and ALWAYS means a 24-hour period].
So the creation of Satan the Tempter was: "good."[?] If that was "good," I wonder what "evil" is:
Exodus 32:14 And the LORD repented of the evil which He thought to do to His people.
First Chronicles 21:15 And God sent the angel to Jerusalem to destroy it; but when He was about to destroy it, the LORD saw, and He repented of the evil; and He said to the destroying angel, "It is enough; now stay your hand." And the angel of the LORD was standing by the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.
Nice to know that the LORD "repents" of "evil" He did.
Oh, the ridiculous absurdities of our English-language semantics! Thank God the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, and the New in Greek!
It gets worse.
English lingo has it that God get "tired," and thus apparently is some kind of inadequate weakling, occasionally beset with weariness temporarily incapitating Him with perhaps dangerous indefensiveness:
Hebrews 4:4 For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way, "And God rested on the seventh day from all his works."
There MUST be a preferable word other than: "rested" - such as: 'became creationally inoperative,' relating to:
Psalm 93:1 The LORD reigns; He is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed, He is girded with strength. Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
Psalm 96:10 Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns! Yes, the world is established, it shall never be moved; He will judge the peoples with equity."
Glad the moon, planets, asteroids, and stars are not suddenly and catastrophically going to fly out of orbit to collide with planet Earth! So go ahead, and depend on perfectly-consistent gravities when aiming for celestial objects in near and deep space. Sorry, apostate History International cable-TV-channel heretics...fearfully suckholing end-of-the-world Mayan myths along with vaguely-verbose hallucinations of Nostradamus.
Moreover concerning wordsmithing, we must be careful when declaring a dutiful obligation to "say grace" before eating meals.
"Grace?" Does THAT mean thanking God for the food and drink...and/or blessing the food and drink so it does not injure nor harm us -- whether there as it sits suddenly and miraculously devoid of potentially-lethal contamination after being blessed, or rendered harmless after eating it though it yet contains some life-threatening contaminants (be they poisons having immediately fatal or eventually fatal effects, such as fallout-related-or-other radioactive carcinogens normally becoming lodged in some remote body parts and causing incurable cancer)?
A final point involving semantically-diverse terminology can be made between a tertiary jew claiming allegiance to Abraham ONLY:
Matthew 3:9 ....and do not presume to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father'; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.
Luke 3:8 Bear fruits that befit repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father'; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.
John 8:31 Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in Him, "If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples,
32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."
33 They answered him, "We are descendants of Abraham, and have never been in bondage to any one [including child-murdering Pharoah in Egypt before The Exodus, plus Babylonian-conqueror Nebuchadnezzar]. How is it that you say, 'You will be made free'?"
34 Jesus answered them, "Truthfully, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin.
35 The slave does not continue in the house forever; the son continues forever.
36 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
37 I know that you are descendants of Abraham; yet you seek to murder Me, because My word finds no place in you.
38 I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father."
39 They answered him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do what Abraham did,
40 but now you seek to murder Me, a man who has told you the truth which I heard from God; this is not what Abraham did.
41 You do what your father did." They said to Mim, "We were not born of fornication [Oh YEAH? WHO knows who birthed the bastards?]; we have one Father, even God."
42 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of My own accord, but He sent Me.
43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear My word.
44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
45 But, because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.
46 Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?
47 He who is of God hears the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God."
48 The Jews answered him, "Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?" [What the heck kind of a mindlessly-wacko rumor-concocted accusation was that?]
49 Jesus answered, "I have not a demon [duh!]; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. [for sure!]
50 Yet I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks it and He will be the judge.
51 Truthfully, I say to you, if any one keeps my word, he will never see death."
52 The Jews said to Him, "Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, as did the prophets; and you say, 'If any one keeps My word, he will never taste death.' ["Tasting" death and "seeing" death are two different things]
53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? And the prophets died! Who do you claim to be?" ["Claim" to be?]
54 Jesus answered, "If I glorify myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say [claim] that He is your God.
55 But you have not known Him; I know Him. If I said, I do not know Him, I would be a liar like you; but I do know Him and I keep His word.
56 Your father Abraham [besides your previously-stated father: The Devil?] rejoiced that he was to see My day; he saw it and was glad."
57 The Jews then said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old [maybe 60 or even 75 would have helped?], and have you seen Abraham?"
58 Jesus said to them, "Truthfully, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."
59 So they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple [belay the calling down a legion of supernatural fighter angels to exterminate them option].
...in contrast to an Israeli Messianic Jew claiming allegiance to not merely Abraham (who bore trouble-causing Ishmael of [antisemitic] arabs, besides the other one) but also to Isaac AND to Jacob:
Genesis 21:12 But God said to Abraham, "Be not displeased because of the lad and because of your slave woman; whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tells you, for through Isaac shall your descendants be named.
Romans 9:7 and not all are children of Abraham because they are his descendants; but "Through Isaac shall your descendants be named."
Hebrews 11:18 of whom it was said, "Through Isaac shall your descendants be named."
.....to whom the Promised Land was designed, the territorial borders [And listen up: Pakistanis and Iranians and Saudis, Hamas and Fatah and Hezbollah!] of which are described in Ezekiel chapter 47:
Ezekiel 47:13 Thus says the Lord GOD: "These are the boundaries by which you shall divide the land for inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel. Joseph shall have two portions.
14 And you shall divide it equally; I swore to give it to your fathers, and this land shall fall to you as your inheritance.
15 This shall be the boundary of the land: On the north side, from the Great Sea by way of Hethlon to the entrance of Hamath, and on to Zedad,
16 Berothah, Sibraim (which lies on the border between Damascus and Hamath), as far as Hazerhatticon, which is on the border of Hauran.
17 So the boundary shall run from the sea to Hazarenon, which is on the northern border of Damascus, with the border of Hamath to the north. This shall be the north side.
18 On the east side, the boundary shall run from Hazarenon between Hauran and Damascus; along the Jordan between Gilead and the land of Israel; to the eastern sea and as far as Tamar. This shall be the east side.
19 On the south side, it shall run from Tamar as far as the waters of Meribathkadesh, thence along the Brook of Egypt to the Great Sea. This shall be the south side.
20 On the west side, the Great Sea [i.e. Mediterranean] shall be the boundary to a point opposite the entrance of Hamath. This shall be the west side [whether the Brits, the U.N., the antisemitic so-called "palestinians," the beast and false prophet, or whoever...like it or not!].
21 So you shall divide this land among you according to the tribes of Israel.
22 You shall allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the aliens [refugees?] who reside among you and have begotten children among you. They shall be to you as native-born sons of Israel; with you they shall be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel.
23 In whatever tribe the alien resides, there you shall assign him his inheritance," says the Lord GOD.

Now, a few words about addictions and "original sin" relating to "once saved, always saved."
Everyone has physical needs which the Creator endowed them with. Phenomena which need fulfilment, such as breathing, eating and drinking, urinating and defecating, having sexual intercourse, and more. To engage in behavior and activities logically pertinent to satisfying those needs is, of course, Divinely expected and commanded....and in NO way can such endeavors rightfully be slandered as "addictions." For example:
Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.
Addictions are in fact repeated attempts to fulfil a God-given physical or mental need in thoughts and actions other than or contrary to how the Lord Biblically wants those needs met.
Keep in mind that addictions are clearly aberrations which by their very obvious deviance reveal a need which is not being addressed, and not addressed because of prejudiced or deliberately malicious sinful duress and suppression imposed by Satan and those many who are allied with him, whether admittedly or not.
One is not born with addiction, nor born an addict, even though all persons are born into a sinful environment. To try to fulfil a God-given need in a demonic way is a choice and NOT a mandatory genetically-based given which one has no conscious freewill decision-ability to deal with.
Which choice involves whether there is innate guilt or innocence in human lifeforms from the very start.
Does God send infants, forming in the wombs of their sinning-during-pregnancy mothers and birthed in the presence of sinful midwife obstetricians, who die of some disease or are killed....to Hell to burn forever - which babes might not have ever even demonically shrieked like some out-of-the-blue deranged killer bee, viciously-snarling devildog, or herd of demon-possessed swine rushing down a slope to drown themselves?
Genesis 20:1 From there Abraham traveled toward the territory of the Negeb, and dwelt between Kadesh and Shur; and he went to Gerar.
2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, "She is my sister." And Abimelech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah.
3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, "Hey, you are a dead man, because of the woman whom you have taken; for she is a man's wife."
4 Now Abimelech had not approached her; so he said, "Lord, will You slay an innocent people?
5 Did he not himself say to me, 'She is my sister'? And she herself said, 'He is my brother.' In the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my hands I have done this."
6 Then God said to him in the dream, "Yes, I know that you have done this in the integrity of your heart, and it was I who kept you from sinning against me; therefore I did not let you touch her.
7 Now then restore the man's wife; for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you, and you shall live. But if you do not restore her, know that you shall surely die, you, and all that are yours."
8 So Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and told them all these things; and the men were very much afraid.
9 Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said to him, "What have you done to us? And how have I sinned against you, that you have brought on me and my kingdom a great sin? You have done to me things that ought not to be done."
10 And Abimelech said to Abraham, "What were you thinking of, that you did this thing?"
11 Abraham said, "I did it because I thought, There is no fear of God at all in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.
12 Besides she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
13 And when God caused me to wander from my father's house, I said to her, 'This is the kindness you must do me: at every place to which we come, say of me, He is my brother.'"
14 Then Abimelech took sheep and oxen, and male and female slaves, and gave them to Abraham, and restored Sarah his wife to him.
15 And Abimelech said, "Hey, my land is before you; reside where it pleases you."
16 To Sarah he said, "Hey, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver; it is your vindication in the eyes of all who are with you; and before every one you are righted."
17 Then Abraham prayed to God; and God healed Abimelech, and also healed his wife and female slaves so that they bore children.
18 For the LORD had closed all the wombs of the house of Abimelech because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.
Romans 9:6 But it is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel,
7 and not all are children of Abraham because they are his descendants; but "Through Isaac shall your descendants be named."
8 This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are reckoned as descendants.
9 For this is what the promise said, "About this time I will return and Sarah shall have a son."
10 And not only so, but also when Rebecca had conceived children by one man, our forefather Isaac,
11 though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or bad, in order that God's purpose of election might continue, not because of works but because of his call,
12 she was told, "The elder will serve the younger."
Everyone who has ever lived, lives now, and will live, makes an attitude choice - from the very start - whether they are basically for God, His works, and His ways...or instead against such. I believe that they never really change that intrinsic attitude throughout their entire lives, but the manifestations or evidences of their one-or-the-other attitude choice become more and more obvious as time progresses and they blossom out to reveal such inner outlook in increasing age.
