Death Penalty Per God for Evil Acts
➢ Pre-mediated murder should result in the death penalty.
“He who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death.
However, if he did not lie in wait, but God delivered him into his
hand, then I will appoint for you a place where he may flee. But if a
man acts with premeditation against his neighbor, to kill him by
treachery, you shall take him from My altar, that he may die.” Exodus
➢ Whoever attacks his parents should result in the death penalty.
“And he who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.” Exodus 21:15.
➢ Kidnapping should be result in the death penalty.
“He who kidnaps a man and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, shall surely be put to death.” Exodus 21:16.
➢ Owners of known unconfined wild animals that kill should beware.
“But if the ox tended to thrust with its horn in times past, and it has
been made known to his owner, and he has not kept it confined, so that
it has killed a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned and its owner
also shall be put to death.” Exodus 21:29.
➢ The death penalty will be based on the testimony of two or more witnesses.
“Whoever is deserving of death shall be put to death on the testimony
of two or three witnesses; he shall not be put to death on the
testimony of one witness. The hands of the witnesses shall be the first
against him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the
people. So you shall put away the evil from among you.” Deuteronomy
➢ Evil people deserve death per Protestant Paul.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God
gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not
fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,
wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife,
deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of
God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to
parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,
unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who
practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but
also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:28-32.
➢ It is the responsibility of government to punish evil people.
Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no
authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed
by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance
of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For
rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be
unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise
from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do
evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is
God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for
conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are
God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render
therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to
whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. Romans 13:1-7.
Is This Why Catholics Hate Sola Scriptura?
Pope calls for worldwide abolition of death penalty
28 February, 2016
Rome - Pope Francis asked the Catholic leaders around the world on
Sunday after his weekly Angelus prayer to work to stop executions
during this year, and said the death penalty should be abolished
The specific request was made as part of a broader appeal for a global
consensus on abolishing capital punishment, which did not refer to any
particular territory or country.
The pope said that the penalty seeks to repress crime without giving the person a chance to be rehabilitated.
Francis issued a plea to Catholic politicians all over the world to
make "a courageous and exemplary gesture" by seeking a moratorium on
executions during the Church's current Holy Year, which ends in
Pope Francis gives his thumbs up as he leaves after a special jubilee
audience in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican, Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016.
"The problem must be viewed in the context of a penal justice ever more
in conformity with human dignity and God's plan for man and society as
well as a criminal justice policy open to the hope of reintegration
In addition to working toward abolishing the death penalty, the pope
called on all Christians "and people of good" to work to "improve
prison conditions" as a way of respecting the "human dignity of persons
deprived of liberty".
The pope is building on church teaching, laid out by St. John Paul II, that there's no justification for capital punishment.
"As Christians, we are called to bear witness to the Gospel message of
hope and solidarity", the Pope added. But his concern for those behind
bars goes beyond the death penalty.
Note: The Gospel is only about Jesus Christ in whom you are saved.
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to
you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you
are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless
you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I
also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the
Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third
day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then
by the twelve. 1 Corinthians 15:1-5.
Note: Protestant Paul proclaims that Pope Francis is accused of God.
I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in
the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but
there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of
Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other
gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any
other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
