Business matters

I thoroughly enjoyed “Taking care of business” (April 14). It’s clearly right on target.

As a layman, I spent a career in industry before becoming a full-time church staff member. Frankly, I’m excited about the prospects of using time-tested, proven business techniques from industry to accomplish kingdom purposes.

The opportunity to reach people for Jesus is limitless when you combine the methods of strong business leaders with the servant-leader characteristics of our Lord.

Matter of Death

Shame on the Supreme Court. This “high court” should eliminate the death penalty by declaring it unconstitutional. If the death penalty were abolished, we wouldn’t have to wonder if the government was executing innocent people.

Supreme Court justices believe in the Ten Commandments. One of the commandments clearly states, “Thou shalt not kill.” I guess there are exceptions to “God’s law.

Even if the death penalty is constitutional, that doesn’t make it right. After all, slavery used to be constitutional. If Jesus were a member of the Supreme Court, he would oppose all executions. The death penalty is wrong and should be abolished forever.
