Wednesday, July 27, 2005I'm pretty sure that I no longer believe in the death penalty, and here's a great article explaining why.
I can call sin for what it is, in my own life first and then perhaps humbly somewhere else. But I cannot deal out death as though it were the same as grounding a teenager and telling a four year-old to stand in timeout. That sort of judgement is not mine to give.
"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."
