If killing is a deadly sin how does a police or soldier that killed in order to protect people get sentenced in the afterlife?

  • 1 Kings 2:5 KJV  Moreover thou knowest also what Joab the son of Zeruiah did to me, and what he did to the two captains of the hosts of Israel, unto Abner the son of Ner, and unto Amasa the son of Jether, whom he slew, and shed the blood of war in peace, and put the blood of war upon his girdle that was about his loins, and in his shoes that were on his feet.


  • Numbers 35:31 KJV  Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall be surely put to death.

The penalty for thou shalt not kill is the death penalty. Numbers chapter 35 explains the difinition of murder.

  • Matthew 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
