a Christian go to war, which obviously would entail the
killing of others?
What's in the heart? Would you
be going cause you like to destroy? Would you be going because you aren't
sure if God would protect your nation?
Would you be going with the concept that God is guiding you in protecting
your nation, and that this is how He wants it done in this particular case?
Only you can decide depending on what
you believe (are sure about) in your heart at this time in your
Christian growth -Romans
14:23 "And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth
not of faith. For whatsoever is not of faith is sin."
different for everyone; God doesn't
want clones. Nor will God hold your own particular beliefs against
8:1,2 "There is therefore now no
them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after
the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made
me free from the law of sin and death."
get all those animals into the ark? -Genesis
6:19,20 "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort
shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall
be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their
kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every

the massive flood soon to occur
(way back then) the ark was about as large as the Titanic. It was 437 feet
long, 73 feet wide and 44 feet high.
There are only 300 species of land
mammals known to science which are larger than a sheep, and almost three
times as many are not any larger than a house cat. Noah was instructed
to take two of every kind, not two of every variety. For example, two cats,
two dogs; not two Collies, two poodles, etc.
The same ratio God instructed (6 to
1) Noah to use, is used today as the optimum
for construction of large ocean going vessels.
the Bible condone slavery?
It talks about it, but doesn't condone it. In the last
book of the Bible, Revelation
chapters 17 and 18, God deals harshly with an evil world system that

A saint is one who is in the
family of God--Ephesians
a sinner who
has been accepted by the Father, thanks
to Jesus Christ. He then has been placed
in a state of righteousness by having all sin removed that hitherto
had separated him from this relationship
with the Father, therefore enabling a continuous state of sonship
with the Father.
there exaggerations in the Bible?
On the contrary, rather than using overstatements, the
Bible tends to understate. An example
(when there, click on the 'burnt Hazor with fire' link).

heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall
so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."
