A Roman soldier once asked his superior for the privilege of speaking to Julius Caesar. His request was granted and when he approached Caesar, he plead for permission to end his life.

Why did God forbid murder in the sixth commandment?

There are three reasons Chase, age 11, would never murder anyone: 1) “It is wrong to take a gift of God”; 2) “If you think about it, I don’t believe you would want someone to kill you”; and 3) “You don’t want to go ZZZZ in the electric chair.” Yes, life is a gift of …
