Should Christians Support The Death Penalty? Dylan Roof Has Been Sentenced To Death!!
😏😏Reader yesterday a jury sentenced Dylann Roof to death for the Charleston Church Massacre. From a Christian perspective, I'm curious how my brothers and sisters in Christ feel about the death penalty in light of what we know the Bible says about grace.
Jesus' teachings emphasized compassion, and forgiveness yet many Christians strong support the death penalty. Some think the death penalty is completely wrong, and others support it. Definitely been a debated subject for a long time. But I honestly do not think a message of forgiveness and mercy is compatible with capital punishment.
I have mixed feelings on this, so your answer won't offend me. 😉 I used to be totally in favor of the death penalty, but after reading about the woman caught in adultery, I find myself wondering if Christians should support it.
