Thou shalt not...

According to the Biblical commandments, “Thou shall not commit murder ” (or kill, I forget which is the correct wording). That would be an unforgivable sin and according to the Church of God, your soul would be incinerated, never to exist again. Now as to the other sins in the Ten Commandments, if you don’t ask God for forgiveness or confess your sins before dying then you go straight to Hell and there you burn for eternity. Now from what has been reported according to some who have died briefly and described what they felt, to me that would be torture. In other words, if you don't want to be tortured like that you would have to kill someone so as not to be tortured after death but incinerated instead.

Now this doesn’t make any sense to me. I don’t think that there is one person in this world today that has no sins at all. No one knows if they are going to be killed by a freak accident of some kind at any time of the day or die in his/her sleep. To be without sins these days a person would have to be on a planet with no one else around or maybe be in a coma. So it's not possible to avoid being tortured is it?

On a related note, from what I have read, Disciple Paul was the only one that could write - so everything that Jesus said would have been reported to Paul. As we know these days, anyone that reports something doesn't always remember what the message was that they were supposed to convey. They added their own version of what they thought was told to them and the results were contrary to what the message was what it should have been. So how accurate is the Bible we read today?

Those are some thoughts I have had lately on religion.
