Matthew 5: 21 – 26

These verses seem to elevate quite a few offenses to the level of murder as far as damnation goes. Basically it seems that anger towards others is of equal unworthiness fro entry in heaven.

In our litigious-happy society the Christian notion of settlement before court was picked up by neither theists nor theists.
