"When a soldier dies in battle,
And arrives at the Gates to Heaven;
To Saint Peter he will tell,
One more Soldier reporting sir;
I've served my time in Hell."

I heard some thing similar in Valkyrie Profile and it goes like this: No glory as great does a warrior await. No nobler than he who meets his fate at Valhalla's gate on the wings of the Valkyrie.

The fact that you decided to use a distinctive WW2 era German instead of a generic soldier makes this a lot more interesting, for me at least.

Why can't he go to hevean?
All he was doing is defending his country and family.

From Wikipedia:
Multiple translations exist of the fifth/sixth commandment; the Hebrew words לא תרצח (lo tirtzach) are variously translated as "thou shalt not kill" or "thou shalt not murder".
The imperative is against unlawful killing resulting in bloodguilt. The Hebrew Bible contains numerous prohibitions against unlawful killing, but also allows for justified killing in the context of warfare (1Kings 2:5–6), capital punishment (Leviticus 20:9–16) and self-defence (Exodus 22:2–3). The New Testament is in agreement that murder is a grave moral evil, and maintains the Old Testament view of bloodguilt.

And you trust that source? I'm no christian, but when it comes to their ten commandments, there are no exceptions. The extra "unless its lawfull" bit came in much later from those seeing the rules as too harsh themselves.

It just had a good explanation, it's not what I trust to interpret for me. Translating words into another language is a tricky business because words frequently mean similar things with slightly different connotations. For example, 'kill' and 'murder' both mean 'end life', but the latter carries connotations of an unjust ending of life, while the former is more a blanket term.

the word used in Exodus 20:13 is usually translated as 'murder' because, from what I can tell, the Hebrew word is invariably used in the context of unlawful killing. Besides, when there is a list of crimes with the death penalty from Exodus 21:12 onwards, who would carry out the sentence if there was a blanket ban on killing? In fact, the command doesn't mention humans either, so why would there also be commands about what meat can be eaten if the Jews weren't to be allowed to kill the animals? Self-defence would be another situation.

What I'm saying is, "Do not kill" is the mistranslation.


Anyway, I don't want get into a largely unrelated discussion in the comments for someone else's excellent art, so I'll leave it there. Hopefully it was a useful bit of information, and if you fancy discussing things further, feel free to send a note. :)

Wow. just, WOW!
This is one of the few pictures that evokes any level of emotion in me.

A soldier who has died sees that the road to heaven is both broken and barred for him. The only option is the burning pit thats behind him.

Thats what i get out of it. Its such a sad picture that shows the sacrifice given by service members. Makes me proud to be one!
5/5 Absolutely awesome picture!
