Michael, I will thank you for not misrepresenting what I said. You truncated my remark by starting the quote "people in history" when what I actually typed was "many people in history". Stop pretending you're Keith for a minute, will you.

Keith, ask a hundred Christians what the fifth commandment is. If they don't all say "thou shalt not kill" I'll eat my hat. "Usually translated as do no murder" my arse. As for healing the daughter of a centurion, well she wasn't the centurion, and several other considerations besides. For example, the fact that he didn't do it. Even if he had done, at least he wasn't clinging to the tenet that the sins of the father are visited upon the daughter. Complicated stuff, this biblical morality. :-)
