Killing is most dangerous when it is easy to accomplish. Just like crushing a roach and/or poisoning a rat I can do it without remorse.
Killing becomes easy when I don’t have to look the victim in the eye it becomes and I can rejoice at killing when it is easy to do.
It is easy to kill someone with whom I have no relationship or even worse someone whom I despise.
Those are easy targets. I don’t have to explain to anyone why I killed them because after all they were in the way of our agenda.
My judgment gets clouded on an easy kill. The decision comes with little heavy thinking.
A decision that is popular and provides me with applause. That is an easy kill.
Be careful that we don’t make killing a habit. Easy kills become an easy habit. It is even worse when we do it thinking that we are pleasing God in the process. God does not delight in death, no matter how wicked we may believe they are.
Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God , I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
Ezekiel 33:11 KJV
