  • The core of the biblical prohibition to kill is therefore never to attack the life of an innocent human person. In this attack there is an extraordinary gravity in the moral aspect; it is a sin and also a crime before God and other human persons. God demands an account for every innocent human person who has been killed, since he has created man according to his image.
