Churches post 'Thou shalt not kill' billboards around Detroit
A wave of gun violence in Detroit has prompted local church leaders to inundate the city with "Thou shalt not kill" posters and billboards in hopes of quelling the violence.
A coalition of clergy leaders held an emergency meeting on Nov. 7 to develop a plan to promote the message of the Sixth Commandment in the community, WWJ-TV reported.
‚ÄúWe all have to do what we can do, and right now we don‚Äôt have a respect in our communities for life; we don‚Äôt have a respect for many things,‚ÄĚ a local minister, Ovella Andreas, told the station. ‚ÄúBut we still have to create a standard to hopefully have a consciousness about God ‚Ä¶. because even our people have become apathetic.‚ÄĚ...
Boy, times sure were different back then, Lisa. Stop punishing immorality, but instead, promote and condone it like is done today like never before, and look at the outcome.

Numbers 1 51And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
Leviticus 20 2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
The full gospel would be better. The law cannot change anyone's heart, though if they do this, it would probably best to also include the correct and full application of that commandment, which was given by Jesus. Murder starts in the heart.
