First off, you have to understand the context of the Bible before you can ask a question like this. The Old Testament as it relates to today is good in historical reference. However, to say that you don't understand why that can not be used in literal translation is absurd. Does God smite people today? Did not his son Jesus die so that God could usher in a new era of free choice?
To compare Christian belief to that of the Koran and those who bastardize that religion as well for the purpose of killing non believers, or infidels if you will, shows a pure lack of understanding on your part.
i was comparing the justification of acts based upon religious belief
and as for ignorance, i'm rather well versed in some sects of christianity, and i have knowledge of islam, i think you just may have misinterpreted my point
Please at least attempt to use some rational basis when posting.
