I'm going to go ahead and call this guy a troll who is arguing nonsense.It sort of sounds like he thinks good characters are all Jesus. His arguments are absurd. I guess all his good characters are disguised celestial outsiders.
You obviously forgot about John 2 - where Jesus made a badass whip and proceeded to beat the crap out of the merchants/money-changers who were violating the temple. And then in Matthew 21 when he came back to Jerusalem he did it a 2nd time because they hadn't learned.
(The whole 'turn the other cheek' thing is often taken vastly out of context. It doesn't mean that you should just take a physical beating - it had to do with insults. Culturally at the time - if you slapped someone with the back of the hand you were slapping an inferior - open hand slapping was for an equal in a disagreement. So - the 'turn the other cheek' was in reference to standing your ground against insults and making them respect you for it without replying with insults of your own.)
Yeah... also, he never killed anyone. >_>
Also, as to the whole Paladin thing: There's no reason a Paladin can't Smite with subdual damage. Nothing says it has to be lethal.
