I am not going to lose sleep but I believe it is a God-given option/responsibility of the government, but something that Christians should have nothing to do with.
Samuel G. Dawson on Capital Punishment Interesting thoughts. It is a paradox that I hold to, as well.
On an unrelated note: Pray for the Adams family. I will be taking part in the memorial service for the son of one of our members. He died from complications from a bullet wound to the head in a robbery attempt on the island of St. Vincent. The shooting occurred weeks ago. He survived surgery to remove the bullet and lived about a week before dying the day after Thanksgiving in Trinidad. The family was finally able to have the body transported here for a service and burial.
