You still have faith in something that you don't know what it is. I'm sorry, but that does sound slightly odd. But if you knew what he was, it wouldn't.

And we can't do that in Heaven? It's almost as if he's testing us. But why? Surely there's no wrong-doing or suffering in Heaven? Maybe Heaven doesn't even exist?

Many quotes from the old testament support this. For instance:

'If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, 'You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.' Zechariah 13:3 - Basically, 'false' (non-believing) prophets must die.

'If a man lies with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, they have both commited an abomination; they shall surely be put to death: their blood shall be upon them' Levitus 20:13 - Basically, kill all homosexuals.

There are many others, but I can't go including them all here.

We kill people who kill people to show others that killing is wrong.
