Does God love killers?

Scriptures, n. The sacred books of our holy religion, as distinguished from
the false and profane writings on which all other faiths are based.
- Ambrose Bierce, writer (1842-1914) [The Devil's Dictionary]

The greatest failures of any religion are the hubris by which each believes it is the only true way to eternal life at God's side and the intolerance of those of other faiths who hold similar beliefs about theirs.

Did God put us on Earth to squabble over whose religion is best?

Virtually every major religion in the world today has an equivalent of "Thou shalt not kill" as one of its commandments. While each pays lip service to this dictate from its God, not one of them adheres to it strictly.

Given the right conditions, each uses abuses by those of other religions or the inhuman ignorance of atheists or pagans as excuses for violating their own most sacred commandment.

If God is a creator, why would He want killers by his side?
