Capital punishment: ‘We are not God’

Regarding the death penalty: Could you be the one who injects the poison that will kill the one accused of a crime? You are the one! The state may get the credit, but we are the state.

Even if the accused is guilty and does not deserve to live, we are not God. We arer taking a life, maybe an unworthy life, but Jesus loves even the most unworthy.



We all are unworthy.
