USA is far from a theocracy.

I have been very outspoken about the drone wars. I feel terrible about what is happening to those people. I have a little girl and I can't imagine the pain those people must feel to see their families slaughtered. And I am a christian. I see the point you are trying to make in this tragedy being condoned by this nation. However, you err when you assume there is a christian majority applauding this. The man perpetrating this horror is as Godless as one can be and he is hailed en masse by the liberals and non-christians. You can't pin this on any one group of people with particular religious convictions. Those people are being killed because of our apathy not a holy crusade to rid the land of the heathen. I still don't see how I proved your point, at all. My God, the God of the Bible is angry with the wicked every day. Hell and destruction are before his eyes. But even more so are the hearts of men. Christ said many will come in his name. He didn't say many would do his will. If that were the case then we would love our neighbor for this, Christ said, is the commandment on which all others hinge.

Neither of those words are arbitrary. The are very specific in their use and their is nothing random about them.

I will try and define these words, as you requested, as I best I can.

I wouldn't murder a child rapist. I would kill him. I wouldn't kill an innocent child. I would murder him. That clear things up for you?
