Musket, Christians do know about that mistranslation.
It is an indisputable fact that the ancient Hebrew text, as learned by Jesus, proscribed murder not warfare if just. The Israelites were constantly at war from the time of Moses onwards.

Jim,
If it is wrong to kill for gain, is it not equally wrong to trade in arms for profit?

Trade requires a profit. Jesus advised his followers to buy swords.

Yes they are -it is inbult in wahat they say - it is wrong to kill,,(no qualifications)

It IS qualified. See above.
