If it were known for a fact that he would implement the Final Solution and the Holocaust and that only killing him would prevent it, why wouldn't any sane person kill Baby Hitler? Not killing him while knowing the certainty that he would murder millions would be millions of times worse than Saul consenting to Stephen being killed (Acts 8:1).
I think this is why we are to pray that the wicked would be miscarried so that they never have the opportunity to carry out the atrocities that they would otherwise carry out.
I understand what you're saying about the giants and that they have no resurrection. However, I don't think that the imprecatory prayer prescribed in Psalm 58 should be limited in application to only those of the giant races.luchnia wrote: ↑Fri Jan 25, 2019 7:27 amIn the day when there were men that could not be raised and receive eternal life death if an infant would have been destroyed it would spare many people great loss and destruction. We remember that David and others were to slay all those of the races that could not rise again. They had no possibility of a resurrection through salvation.
Hard to imagine offspring born from evil seed without any chance of salvation, yet events occurred that produced such. Foreknowledge is an amazing thing. If we knew what paths some would take on that broad way that leads to destruction, it would probably make us think much differently.
