Are Christians allowed to kill in self defense? I am having a debate with someone right now and believe that they are not, citing these passages:
Romans 12:19 ESV: Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord."
Matthew 5:38-39 ESV: You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
