  • Now that might sound like an oxymoron, but hear me out.

    You see, my love of Jesus requires that I love all mankind as he did, that I forgive all sins against me and others, and that I judge no one. If you've read any of my various Bible studies, you'll know those three points are the essential elements of being a Christian.

    Yet, I haven't found anything to suggest that executing people for acts against society or the law is outside the scope of the religion. Quite the contrary, in fact. The last few days I've been reading the book of Exodus, chapters 19-21, and in fact these chapters contain a bevy of circumstances wherein the wishes of God himself include the death of the perpetrator.

    Still, it does seem to indicate a dilemma exists, one that might just alter the way we accept the world we live in.

    To be continued.....
