20 Reasons For Believing God Does Not Kill

  1. The life of Christ is the fullest revelation of God’s character of love. Our precious Lord Jesus Christ never once hurt or killed anyone while here on earth in a body of flesh, which is the ultimate proof of what the Father is really like.
  2. God the Father nor the Son have never once hurt or killed an evil angel, including Satan himself, the chief of the devils. Why then should we blame the God family, Eph 3:14, 15 for the death of any human beings or animals? Are you willing to indict God for murder on the basis of circumstantial evidence? Satan and his angels are much more guilty than we and therefore, on the basis of “justice” they should be killed before any human beings, yet Jude 6 tells us God is “reserving” or protecting them until the final day of judgment. What do you think will happen then? So, they are not burning in hell right now. Nor is any human being.
  3. The 6th commandment says Thou shalt Not Kill. The lawgiver cannot break His own law or He Himself would come under His own condemnation. He would be untrue to His own character, which is a transcript of the very law itself. He must be true to Himself and to His own law and character.
  4. God never changes—If Jesus never killed anyone while He was on earth (and we know He never did), and if Jesus’ life was the fullest demonstration of God’s character, then God the Father, has always been just like what Jesus showed Him to be—A Life God, Not a death god. John 10:10; Heb 13:8; Mal 3:6.
  5. It is an irreconcilable, self-negating statement to say that the Life-giver takes life. The Creator cannot be both a life God and a death God at the same time. Satan is the death god…and the sign of his power is Sun(day) worship which is pagan Baal worship. I Kings 17-19.
  6. The Sabbath is the final & ultimate proof that God is a life God. It proves He gives life, and sustains life. It is the central theme of the final message to go to the world.
  7. “GOD DESTROYS NO MAN.” Christ’s Object Lessons, page 84. “Every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17.
  8. The Cross of Jesus Christ answers every question in the Great Controversy between good and evil. The cross is the greatest demonstration of God’s love. It proves the God family, in Christ, was willing to die so we might live. Instead of killing us or letting us die, he came and died in our place, that we might live forever with Him.
  9. The book of Job, chapters 1-3 especially, proves that Satan is the destroyer. See also Exodus 12:23; I Cor 10:10.
  10. Satan is the one who causes floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, pestilence and all of the aberrations of nature. See Great Controversy, pg 590. God does not execute anyone, but leaves the sinner to reap what he has sown. G.C. 35-37.
  11. Psalm 103:20 proves God’s angels do not kill, but keep His law. Rev. 7 proves God’s angels hold back evil. They do not bring it. God’s angels are called “Destroying Angels,” because or for the reason that they withdraw and therefore permit evil to come. See I Kings 22 where it says God’s angels “lie.” But these are evil angels and the “god” who sits on the throne directing them is Satan, the “prince of the power of the air”, the “god of this world.”
  12. “Angels are sent from the heavenly courts, not to destroy, but to watch over and guard imperiled souls, to save the lost, to bring the straying ones back to the fold.” Review & Herald, May 10, 1906.
  13. The instrument of death to the wicked is the LAW OF GOD. “Against every evildoer God’s law utters condemnation. He may disregard that voice, he may seek to drown its warning, but in vain. It follows him. It makes itself heard. It destroys his peace. If unheeded, it pursues him to the grave. It bears witness against him at the judgment.” A quenchless fire, it consumes at last soul and body. Education pgs. 144, 145. This explains Matt 10:28. Actually, it is the violation of the law itself that destroys because the “wages of sin is death,” Rom 6:23, not God killing the sinner. He destroys himself.
  14. The rod of Moses represented God’s power which he had put into man and nature from creation. God held and controlled those powers as long as Moses held the rod in his hands, but when the rod left the prophet’s hand, it changed into a serpent or snake, representing Satan or evil. But when the serpent was on the pole, Numbers 21:8, 9 it represented Christ’s healing power, which He explained to Nicodemus in John 3:14, 15. There are always two aspects to the serpent, good and evil, Isaiah 45:7 and the Father tells us He creates and controls both of them. See John 9 & 11. The Father always brings good out of evil through Jesus 2:14.
  15. “As the Westminister Confession (1645-1647) says, when God revealed His attributes to people, those attributes are not only true to people but true to God (Himself). That is, when God tells people What He is Like, What He says is not just relatively true but absolutely true. As finite beings, people do not have exhaustive truth about God, but they can have truth about God; and they can know, therefore, truth about that which is the Ultimate Universal. And the Bible speaks to men and women concerning meaning, morals, and values.” Frances Schaeffer, “How Should We Then Live?” pg. 84.
  16. “Had the head of Christ been touched, the hope of the human race would have perished. DIVINE WRATH would have come upon Christ as it came upon Adam.” 5 BC 1131. Did Jesus kill Adam? No. He has never hurt or killed any human being, but “Divine Wrath” has been upon us all.”
  17. Psalm 78:49 proves that Satan’s angels destroy. “He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.” God always assumes responsibility for both good and evil and claims to be doing it because He let it happen. He takes the blame because He gave man free will to choose good or evil. That is how we learn.
  18. How is Satan destroyed in the end? Ezek 18:6-10 shows he will “die” and be “killed” by those whom he has controlled who now turn against him. He now realizes he is only a created being. Ezek 28:18 shows that it is the love of God coming from within Lucifer himself, which is the Father’s love, that will “bring thee to ashes upon the earth” in front of the universe. Ashes represents sorrow and repentance. Phil 2:6-11.
  19. “The creation belongs to God. The Lord could, by neglecting man, stop his breath at once.” Manuscript 36, 1890. But the Lord has never done that nor will He ever in the future because He is a life God, not the death God and He will draw all unto Himself in the end. DA 828 and Rev 15:1-4 and Rev 4 and 5. All will bow & worship Him.
  20. Jesus never brought disease in the Old Testament or the New. He only healed. “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. For God was with Him.” Acts 10:38; Lk 13:16.
