Re: Murder at Sea
My point was to keep them off the boat in the first place. Trusting one's life to someone willing to threaten injury and death to coerce obedience is not a wise move. Perhaps Sir Blake was of the opinion that the robbers wouldn't just leave everyone unharmed. Perhaps the resistance he gave, and the shock of having killed, motivated the robbers to flee, whereas if there had been total submission they may have felt emboldened to indulge in a little more applied power-trip. Who knows. In the circumstances, I think he was a very brave man. Wish there were more like him, the robbing scum of the world would have it a lot harder. There are many.
Ps 139:9-10 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
