There is no capitol punishment in hell, those there are there eternally.
What a strange reply since my post #125 was scriptures from the Word of God.
Are you saying the Word of God is unintelligent?
“Your logic is simply not logical.”
Agreed. He reminds me of Pete & Delmar from “Oh Brother Who Art Thou”, who think, just because they got baptized, the state won’t be pursuing them as escaped fugitives anymore:
The preacher said it absolved us.
For him, not for the law! I’m
surprised at you, Pete. Hell, I gave
you credit for more brains than

That’s not the issue, Delmar. Even
if it did put you square with the

God is clear that a murderer who takes the life of an innocent must not be allowed to keep theirs.
Is there a conflict in the scripture here, my friend? I'm certainly no religious scholar, but there appears there may be. Be assured that I'm less interested in influencing your position on capital punishment (if our positions are, in fact, different) -- I just want, and very much would like, a clarification of your point please.
Hope they are feeling better.
As a Christian I am not for the death penalty because no one is free from sin and worthy to cast that first stone as the Lord has instructed us. I wholeheartedly believe this is Jesus instruction on death penalty for crime. I understand some Christians believe otherwise. I will follow the Lord as best I can even if there have been times I felt differently.
Emotionally I remember feeling a certain murderer should be killed but I do not want a Justice system run by emotions.
As a conservative I am not for the death penalty because innocent people have been executed in this country, our justice system is run by men and women corrupted by sin too. Executions provide no added safety to our society beyond imprisonment.
Very informative. Thank you!
Thank you so much for the ping, dear brother in Christ!
God calls it the 2nd death. Are you in agreement with that being a part of scripture?
Rev 20:14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
What does this have to do with the topic being discussed or about the fact the bodies of both the saved and unsaved die here on earth, not in the lake of fire?
1 Cor 4:5 do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes.
And the scripture showed that there is more than one death -- a second death -- so there is a capital punishment being administered when someone is "cast into hell".
So, is God wrong to administer capital punishment?
You seem to insist that I adopt your interpretation of what eternal separation from God is and why, when I and others here have already explained our interpretation of that is different than yours.
Jesus is without sin and He did not cast a stone at the woman caught committing a capitol punishment offense.
Are you or anyone you can name without sin and therefore worth to throw the first stone in executing someone?
Nope, we’re discussing your statement that ‘there is no capital punishment in hell’.
Hell is a capital punishment since it is the second death.
I’m not insisting you adopt anything. I’m stating the facts about scripture. I don’t believe the woman caught up in adultery, an event that happened before her first death, will be in the second death. If, however, she did not listen to Jesus, and she kept on sinning, then she will be.
