You shall not murder.  Matthew 19:18, Mark 10:19; Luke 18:20

You have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, "You shall not murder'; and 'whoever murders shall be liable to judgment." But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; and if you insult brother or sister, you will be liable to the council; and if you call brother or sister a fool or an idiot, you will be liable to the hell of fire. Matthew 5:22

God made life.

God made bio-life, spirit-life and eternal life.

Bio-life is a massive network of connections, connecting cells, connecting electrons, fields connecting matter of all kinds.

Spirit-life is connecting to God’s Spirit and the spirit of others. Love is healthy spirit-life.

Murder pushes the person away by disconnecting him or her from their body, but in doing so murder also disconnects the person from their friends and relatives too. That’s a crime.

Anger and disrespect are types of murder deserving hell because like bio-murder, anger slashes connections in the network of life.

Hatred with its hubris is spirit-suicide.

Love connects, anger disconnects.

God is love.

To live well is to love well.

Thankfulness is a form of Life because it is an element of love.

Thankfulness connects.
